    What is it about Bremont?

    Iím with you, but not for the price point ó just because I could then wear it with a bracelet of some description. Not manufacturing the bracelets from the same hardened material (and the resultant...

    What is it about Bremont?

    It is? When I reached out them by e-mail, they told me it was 44mm x 15mm thick? Did they confuse it with a different model?

    Their bracelet is a bit industrial ó Iím not a fan of the screws in...

    Iíve toyed with one of these too. What puts me off is the size (same thing that has caused me to move away from Bremont). Why canít the Damasko be 42mm and 14mm thick. Rolex can build a gmt in a 40mm...

    Mine has quite a few knocks and bangs on it. Iíd prefer not to have a hardened case ó that way I could at least pair a bracelet to it!

    My case isnít badly marked, but it has many scuffs and dings...

    What is it about Bremont?

    I have no preference for Rolex in particular, Iíve owned many other makes. I like the Rolex GMT because of its proportions, itís functionality, and itís reliable movements and deviation rates. Iíve...

    What is it about Bremont?

    Iím not sure that 10 years is a long time by horological standards. When I think about what I class as dependable movements, I think of calibers with 30+ years of service ó but Iíve a bent towards...

    Iím really not very interested in limited editions, because theyíre usually too expensive for what they are and I am rarely interested in the subject.

    Oh! I hadnít thought about legibility! Was the dial too cluttered, or was it the hand contrast? Which model did you have?

    I have the ALT1 ZT/BK too. Itís the best of the bunch I think. However, it needs to be 2mm thinner, 2mm smaller, and have an external 1-23 bezel or something.

    The kingsman is a nice piece, but no...

    What is it about Bremont?

    I have a love hate relationship with Bremont. I wonder whether or not that is projected by other WISs.

    I dislike pilots watches, hate straps, dislike the ETA jumping 24 hour hand movement and...

    Haha! I have an L322, and to be honest, it really is outstanding. But Iím biased; Iím on number 44 and negotiating number 45 (and number 42 ó Iím buying an old RRC back!)

    Sticky: Which Bremont(s) do you own?

    It does, I can see something that way coming on too.

    I was kinda hoping for a Range Rover tie-in, though! Today is the 50th anniversary! I know that thereís an existing Zenith tie-in, but itís...

    The 1947 designs are not my kind of thing at all. I like a watch to have a plain dial and be quite restrained. Bremontís can be a little busy for me in some cases; I think this is sometimes...

    A touch on the large side for me; Iíd prefer a solo or something similar. But Iím also not into dress watches (my perfect dress watch is the 1675 or 1680).
