    Thank you. Confirms what I thought, but to be honest, I still don't get it. I'm not knocking Bremont, just don't see the point: they're still not manufacturing a complete in-house movement, and the...

    I'll admit to being genuinely confused about this. Like others have said, I'm not overly bothered about movements other than reliability and accuracy - although I do have an Omega Railmaster with...

    I know I'm a glass-back hater anyway, but I really can't see the point of a pilot's watch not being anti-magnetic: I thought that was part of what made the MB a pilot's watch.

    Personally, I'd be quite happy for the MB to have a 'normal' stainless steel case and a reduction in price to reflect it. I, too, think the case hardening has more value to Bremont's marketing than...

    I bought my MB at a discounted sale price "sold as seen" and it arrived with a tiny 'ding' on the bezel, which makes me wonder whether the hardening is more resistant to day-to-day scratches that it...

    Thank you, and yes, wasn't aware there was an option. To be honest, I find the strap a bit uncomfortable: it's extremely well made and durable, but also quite stiff.

    I think that has the most pleasing dial of any Bremont (or of any brand, actually) and the only one where I can see the point of a display back.

    Enjoyed reading that, thanks for the share.

    I find it interesting from a semantic as well as a value-driven concept how notions of "in-house" and "British" are understood and used. Neither term...

    Yes, I tend to keep them, although I used a Bremont one from when my S2000 was returned under warranty to send the S500, but got the blue one in return. I have a couple of Breitlings and some Omegas...

    Yes, very quick and will do when I get chance, it's still in the plastic film at the moment. Travel case is a different colour to last time, a kind of subtle blue rather than black.
