Nick English, Co-founder of Bremont, sat down with Watchuseek to discuss current collection, partnership with Jaguar, Kingsman movie, production facility in U.K.



Jaguar MKI and MKII
Jaguar and Bremont have announced two new watch collaborations. The two British firms are cementing their long-term partnership following an overwhelming response to the creation of six Bremont chronometers which complement each of the six ‘continuation’ lightweight E-Type sports racing cars currently being built by Jaguar.

These watches are both dedicated to the road-going Jaguar E-Type which at its 1961 launch was not only the fastest production car in the world but, according to Enzo Ferrari, the most beautiful.

In working to capture the E-Type’s essence in a wrist watch, Jaguar’s Director of Design Ian Callum and the creative team at Bremont homed-in on another of its signature features - the dashboard. At its heart are the speedometer and tachometer (or ‘rev counter’) and it is these that inspired the look of the new
Bremont Jaguar MKI and MKII watches.

Boeing Model 1 and Model 247

The clean design of the Model 1 timepiece reflects the early simplicity of Boeing’s very first aircraft design whilst the Model 247 was inspired by Boeing’s progressive twin-engined Model 247 airliner from the 1930s. Developing these designs further has led to the introduction of the new Bremont Boeing Model 1 and Model 247 Titanium GMT timepieces, manufactured from Boeing aviation-grade Ti 6-4. This is a special titanium that is significantly stronger than commercial titanium and used widely in both airframes and engine components.

This is the first time that Bremont will be offering lightweight aviation grade titanium cases in any of its core range pieces. New GMT functionality in these Boeing models extends the current range and also responds to a demand led by the flying fraternity, an important addition for any serious pilot.

U-22 Bronze
Baselworld 2015 sees the launch of the U-22, an extension of the U-2 collection which was originally designed for and inspired by the elite U-2 spy plane squadron. True to its aviation roots, the updated date display was designed to reflect the view on an altimeter which balances the dial well. There is also a difference with the bi-directional rotating inner bezel, originally designed to measure 60 minutes, and altered in the U-22 to a compass quadrant of a pilot which is often useful in navigation weather mapping. The bronze barrel colour was specifically inspired by a number of military watches Bremont has produced
in the past based on the anti-reflective coating used on their cockpit canopies.

I like how they designed the rotor to look like a steering wheel...
