Hi,

Just saying, that I wish Bremont would release their own take on the Big Pilot watch. Something a big larger than the usual 43mm for guys who prefer a bit more wrist presence.

I would love to see them do a 46/47mm trip-tick case, with simple face like the U2 or MB series, nice and uncluttered but would still appreciate a Date or Day/Date feature. Would be cool to see the cut-on face numerals too with the lume underneath for a change too.
Would be happy to see a large second hand or a small circular seconds hand dial above the 6 position.

Would also love to see with and without the internal timer roto-click bezel.

Wish Bremont would try a ceramic model too as I like black watches but always find it a shame how the PVD and DLC coatings always do wear however hard and tough people claim they are. My U2 DLC is showing 'silver' now on most hard edges and around the outer edge of the top bezel, although it does look great with my worn vintage Green Parachute Bag / Brown vintage Leather strap from Stevostraps which is fraying 'white' on the edges and the leather is taking on a nice patina.

A good idea, Rich - I'd like to see what they could come up with.

It wouldn't surprise me if we do see something soon, but I have a feeling that it'd be encompassed within the Boeing collection, as the Ti 247 GMT from Basel already has a ceramic bezel.
