    10 years isn't a long time in horological standards but there are two points to raise here. Firstly, it's not the movement that is 10 years old. The movements used are tried and tested although...

    Do you not think that Bremont has been doing a good job for a long time? In watch historical terms, possibly not but creating exceptional watches for over a decade deserves some praise.

    I wasn't debating the packaging, I agree that the Omega presentation box is very nice. I thought that the packaging around the Hawking may have been better but some do prefer having a usable wallet...

    Interesting choices. What is it about the Omega that appeals to you more than the Bremont? The last few responses bring me back to my original question and topic of the thread, what is it about...

    I get the impression that there are a lot of warranty returns from other brands, possibly even comparably so. What's intriguing about Bremont owners is just how open they are about their warranty...

    That's an interesting question. The price of Bremonts is a common point of discussion. It's interesting that they're often considered overpriced when similar offerings from other manufacturers cost...

    To bring this thread back on topic, the TZ-UK forum has a thread which effectively berates Bremont as a brand. Actually berate might be too strong a word as it's simply a sarcastic 'dig' at Bremont...

    Is what appears to be a brown bezel just reflection from something? (or my eyesight!?)
