Thread: The #BremontTownhouse thread!

    The #BremontTownhouse thread!

    Hey everyone,

    Just announced today: a new barrel colour for the MB/U2 series of watches.

    It is called 'Jet' - and, you guessed it, is black! It was originally made for 100 Squadron RAF, for their 100th Anniversary MBIII watch.

    Here are a few pictures from Bremont..





    It seems that (at least initially) the barrel will only be available for Military/Special Projects watches, but I will clarify.

    Whilst on the topic, what do you want to see at the Bremont Townhouse in about a months time? Any suggestions?

    Is this the 'new design feature' they hinted at a few weeks ago?

    Correct. This was what Bremont called the 'new MBII feature' for 2018.

    I am very much hoping (and expecting) to see some additional 40mm options.

    I think the new 40mm form factor was a major success in 2017, and I look for the brand to capitalize on the trend towards smaller watches on 2018.

    Could we see a 40mm MB watch introduced? That would be cool, although Im not sure its currently possible. The AIRCO and S300 range lacked the necessary anti-shock tech that an MB would require. Perhaps theyve been able to work on that over the past year?

    I think we see additional color options for the S300, and a re-designed S500/2000. Ive heard in the past that blue was to be phased out, so that may be official now.

    Lastly, I think a remodeled ALT1-C could be in order for 2018 with some new colors, hands, etc, a la the ALT1-P2 and ALT1-ZT.

    Are we close enough to feature an English movement? My guess says not yet, but Id be happy to be wrong!

    A Townhouse teaser from this morning appears to confirm a S500 redesign?

    Seems that way, but I'm struggling to see what they could do.

    Could this teaser not be referencing the new Terra Nova instead? That would make a bit more sense, given the teaser seems to show some sort of avalanche?

    I saw the frogman clip yesterday on Twitter and first thought was a new dive watch but then as they released the S300 line last year would it be another dive watch line this year?

    Talking of those clips, there was also one of a chap jumping from the Broussard (think Gary Connery) - another sign of a new line to come?

    Jake, what's the difference in the new barrel colour to what the Alt1tude watch already has?

    Here you go, Andy. The difference between the jet and the anthracite is quite subtle.
