Thread: Bremont in 2020 - What do you want to see?

  1. #21
    I agree. From Nicks comment I thought it must be a DLC version of the Alt1-P2. I presume that it actually will be, just the Tom Hardy picture casts a little bit of doubt in my mind. What I also find quite interesting is that if I recall correctly, the U2/Jet promoted in the first film was actually a standard Bremont watch before being featured in the film. This time around it's almost as if a new watch is being created for the film.

    Bronze is the future as far as I'm concerned. It's amazing!
    We have sold a good number of the Tudor Black Bay Bronze, but I would prefer it to be a bit smaller - along the sizes of the Airco or HMAF.
    In the mistaken hope that I have lost weight I do find the 43mm of the BB Bronze and my beloved ALT1-C and P too bulky on my wrist these days.

    I’d agree with regards to bronze being a future watchmaking ‘must’ - but I think it has to suit your brand image/market. Panerai (famously) pulled it off and created a legendary piece, but I don’t think Bremont could do the same - it’s not ‘on brand’ enough IMO.

    Just my two pence - what do I know!?

    I had the S301 in mind when I thought about the bronze.

    Im not sure what you mean?

    Bremont do have a penchant for trying different materials in their cases. So far they've had stainless steel, damasteel, titanium, rose gold, white gold, platinum. Can't think of a reason not to test the water with bronze. The only downside is that the patina isn't to everyones taste but by all accounts there are bronze alloys that don't patina so it could be avoided if necessary.

    Bremont in 2020 - What do you want to see?

    Same thing I’ve wanted for the last few years:

    • A 40mm gmt with 0-24 bezel based on the S301,
    • Stainless non-case hardened case (so the bracelet matches — bracelet to have micro-adjustment clasp),
    • Black matt dial and ceramic bezel with plain markers (no Arabic numerals),
    • Date function,
    • 0-24 on the chapter ring; both chapter ring numerals and bezel numerals to be lumed,
    • Orange triangle at 0/24 on bezel and orange gmt hand (which extends to chapter ring),
    • Shock absorbent and faraday cage on movement,
    • Solid caseback,
    • Sword hands in stainless steel.

    Simple. The perfect watch. — also the watch that no-one makes.

    The trouble with having an open mind, of course, is that people will insist on coming along and trying to put things in it. :smokin::twit::smokin:

    Some good ideas there.

    Just an aside about the bracelet - the new bracelet does indeed have a micro-adjustable clasp (and divers extension too), but is sadly only available on the new S2000.

    That’s good to know, J — shame it’s not cross range! Monta Watches have really upped the bracelet game in the industry.

    We don’t have an AD here in ‘Berta (I’ve been trying to twist Mike’s arm to fly out and wine and dine the dealer where who’s just lost Rolex (after 40 something years), so I don’t really get to see any of the new stuff until I hit up Heathrow (and they don’t have a good selection there). It’d be great to see a boutique in the Prairies!

    You should make a trip across to the U.K. for a Bremont event/watch launch (if you can!) - I’m sure it’d be worth it!
