Hi all,
Apologies if this is in the wrong place, i have just joined the forum. My name is Les a Bremont owner with a small collection and its steadily growing.
I currently own these
Bremont Solo 43mm
Bremont Mb11 10th Anniversary
Bremont World Timer
and a Bremont Mb 11 blue dial (I cant wear it yet as its a christmas present).
My wife also has 1 Bremont AJ 34 solo
So i guess you could say we like the brand..lol
One question i have...can you put straight spring bars in the mens watches?.. i have seen a couple of straps i like but they are normal springbar fitting where the standard Bremont straps all have curved springbars...

Hi Les, welcome to the forum - do share some pictures of your watches if you can, we’d love to see them!

There’s no reason why you couldn’t use a ‘normal’ straight spring bar in an aftermarket strap on any Bremont, just make sure it’s a good size and fit to ensure it doesn’t move too much. Enjoy!

Welcome to the forum.

I love the MBII 10th Anniversary. Fyi, it really suits a brown alligator strap ;)

I hope my posts are now posting as intended...
I will be looking at some handmade leather straps once things have settled down at home (unfortunatly there is a situation at home with my wife's health thats going to take a while to settle down).

Hi Les, yes, sorry about that. I've no idea why they disappeared or indeed didn't even appear in the first place! My apologies.

No need to aplogise...we dont know what happened so it isnt fair to accept responsability for something you didn't do...and there are bigger things to worry about in the big wide world..

Sent from my SM-G986B using TapatalkYeah that counts.My missus had designer watches till I got her a Tudor 1926, then the bug bit.
Since then I got her a Longines Conquest and then the Solo which she loves.
She bought herself an Evidenza but the Solo is her favourite.
She's on the Bremont Facebook site and always showing me pics of other members watches.
I don't think I'll have any problems convincing her I need/want another watch;)
What does your partner think of hers ?
