    ALT RESPONSE #1 - Peter Roberts

    ALT RESPONSE is a new series of exclusive Q&A sessions with key people from Bremont. It gives members of the forum the opportunity to ask questions directly to the people who matter and their responses will be posted on this forum.

    First in this series is Peter Roberts who is a veteran watchmaker and Bremont’s Technical Director.

    From being qualified as a Fellow of the British Horological Institute in the early 70s, Peter became the first student from the UK to attend the original WOSTEP course in Neuchatel, it was here that Peter designed and constructed a unique mechanism for the Valjoux 72 Chronograph.

    Having worked with IWC in Germany, Rolex (Geneva and UK) and 13 years of teaching technical horology at the Hackney Watch School in London, Peter continues to lecture for Rolex but most of his time is now taken up with his position of Technical Director with Bremont where he is doing what he really loves.

    To take part in this Q&A session, simply reply to this post with one question you would like to ask Peter. A shortlist of questions (less than 10) will then be sent to Peter to answer and the results will be posted as soon as we have them!

    Please note: Given the nature of this session, we cannot guarantee all questions submitted will be answered!

    If you would prefer to email your question, please send an email to: admin@alt1tude.bremont.com.

    We will close question submissions on Thursday June 30 at 12:00 GMT

    Peter, what was the function of the unique mechanism for the Valjoux 72 Chronograph which you constructed?

    Are there any plans for an inhouse movement by Bremont?

    To what extent are the technical innovations within the watches due to previous experience compared to new advances unique to Bremont?

    It seems the mainstream case size for Bremont watches is currently 43mm -- when you introduce a new mainstream case size in the future, do you think it would be smaller or larger than 43mm?

    With Hong Kong being the number 1 market for swiss watches right now, is there interest/plan to introduce an asian sized watch in Bremont's line up? In the same line of thought, any plans on a woman specific Bremont watch?

    Peter,
    Is there a watch in the line up that you would like to improve upon? If so, what modifications would you make?
