    Have been able to get some questions answered:

    -the date wheel will be vertical in the production models.

    -AM/PM window is a reference to the GMT hand, which is actually a 12 hour scale, not 24.

    -case thickness is appropriately same as the Victory.

    -this is an entirely new case, with thinner and notable “bumped” bezel leading up to the crystal. May not see this case in use again, as it was built specifically for this watch.

    -crown is screw down, not pull out.

    -the nighttime AM/PM scene features lume from the beams of the aircraft.

    -applied indices on the white/SS model, applied indices AND numerals on the two gold models.

    -chronograph pushers extend out slightly longer than other Bremont chronographs to match the period design.

    Seriously.

    The more I see the watch, the more stunning it looks. Those photos do the watch a great service. I confess I'm pretty excited to be joining the Bremont team, and what better way to do than with an LE.

    Looks like a lovely morning at the IWM. I lived just behind the museum for many years. Its a little known fract that the museum used to be known in Victorian times as "Bedlam," and was an insane asylum. Disturbingly, during those times, the public would pay to view the patients/inmates. Today, we watch Congress/Parliament!!

    true. Welcome to the club (and it really is a club!). Iíve gone for SS. Deposit paid. My fifth Bremont but first LE

    The event was superb last night. A real privilege to be there. Managed to surprise Mrs Dacman with an anniversary solo 32 as well which was nice.
