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.

    Iíd agree with regards to bronze being a future watchmaking Ďmustí - but I think it has to suit your brand image/market. Panerai (famously) pulled it off and created a legendary piece, but I donít think Bremont could do the same - itís not Ďon brandí 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.
