    Launching 12/12/18 - The Alt1tude Forum SE301!

    Day 8...

    So, today, we’re talking about some of the inspiration behind the design of the SE301 - namely the caseback, and the inclusion of the Broussard.

    As seen in schematic form on the caseback of the SE301, the ‘Bremont Bus’ is an Avions Max-Holste Broussard.





    Manufactured in 1960, the ‘Bus’ can be seen regularly in the hands of Nick and Giles throughout the UK, at events such as Flying Legends. Recently, too, it has been transformed in to a flying billboard for the film ‘Venom’ starring Tom Hardy. It was repainted by Adi Granov in to a striking, and somewhat different, black scheme!





    The Broussard is also where Felix - known to this forum as the mascot of Alt1tude - can be seen on the side of the aeroplane, holding his customary ‘bomb.’ As for whether Felix appears on the SE301, you’ll have to wait and see...

    Launching 12/12/18 - The Alt1tude Forum SE301!

    Day 9 is a BIG feature!

    We are happy to finally share the hands on the SE301, which are totally unique to the Supermarine range, and being made specifically for this project!







    You asked, we delivered: a Supermarine with blued steel hands!

    Blueing the hands is a complicated and expensive process, which gives the watch a different look every time the light catches the hands. It is something rarely seen outside of the Bremont flagship Limited Editions, so seeing them at this level and on the SE301 is a real treat!

    We also decided to include a red tip on the seconds hand, helping to balance and contrast with the colour of the vintage lume - along with the blue of the hands, we think this works very well.

    With one more big reveal to go, we hope you like the unique hands (and the overall watch!) as much as we do!

    Great work, I particularly like blue hands on any watch. They are a real eye catcher. I hope special projects are on standby for the phones to be ringing all day on the 12th
    I was lucky enough to try on a Jaguar MkIII yesterday, what an impressive watch that is, exceptional build quality. Come the 12th I have some difficult decisions to make.

    The hands look great!

    I was having reservations about the Bremont bus on the back but it's slowly growing on me.

    Glad to hear itís growing on you. Out of interest though, what were (are?) your reservations?
