    I don't have a clue but I'll have a go at guessing. Purely aesthetic reasons. Apparently the original Alt1-C design was based on a Mosquito fuel gauge and the 2.5 minute markers are a fairly close...

    Three fantastic watches and all so totally different.

    I've not heard of Linde Werdelin before. A very chunky design and not one that would suit me but I like it.

    Ouch! That's a nice looking watch but with a lot of scratches. I'm not sure whether to applaud that you've been wearing it as a watch should be worn or ask you what on earth you've. been doing with...

    Not really. The 1kg load will be a point load which is why it will penetrate the surface for measurement. Let's say for arguments sake that the 'point' is 1mm square. Your forearm will be something...

    On the other hand, I've heard it said previously that Rolex are quite easy to mark. So you have a more expensive watch with far higher residuals that damages far more easily.

    I take your point...

    Nice! :cool:

    I guess that an S500 is only 495 more than a Airco simply because the same amount of work will go into making each watch barring the pressure testing.

    I completely agree with your first comment and the watch market in general is very competitive, regardless of the price bracket. What it suggests however, is that Bremont watches aren't overpriced....

    Always a fascinating topic, how exactly is 'overpriced' defined? A manufacturer has to make a profit as do their dealers. Only the manufacturer can know how much they cost to produce and therefore...

    You can still find the WF for sale. Beaverbrooks still list a SS version and I'm fairly sure that there's a rose gold version available through the boutiques. I still don't think that the WF's issue...

    I think that's one of Bremonts biggest problems. It's very difficult to find anywhere that actually stocks them, especially if you're in the northern half of our island. Those that do stock them have...

    I agree, it is a stunning watch, both front and back.

    there are a few Bremonts where the view from the back is just as nice as the view from the front. The DH-88, 1918 and Supersonic are perfect...

    It is an interesting read, thanks for sharing.
