Bremont will be launching a new Marine Chronometer in celebration of its involvement as Official Timing Partner to the America’s Cup. Based on the original B1 Marine Chronometer design which was launched in 2010 as a tribute to the original inventor of the Marine Chronometer, John Harrison. The B2 has been specially skeletonized to display more of the mechanism within the clock.
Made in entirely in England, the B2 has unique features not normally found in marine clocks including; three time zones, 30 day power reserve, date, 90 day chronograph and all sealed in a water resistant case.
Built to be attached to the bulkhead of a ship or in its standalone case the B2 has been lovingly hand crafted and finished to an impeccable standard. The twin fusee movement has been gold plated to protect against salt fog damage, and to enable a 30 day power reserve, the B2 uses low friction pivoting systems similar to those developed by John Harrison. The chronometer features ball-race and jewels for the going train and is finished with a classic English escapement.
The clock will run for one month per winding. The dial indicates:
– Time of day (local) hours minutes seconds
– Time of day (home)
– Greenwich Mean Time
– State of wind (power reserve)
– Trip or voyage time (days & hours)
