Bremont Supersonic LE Stainless Steel (Deposit)
When it comes to traditions of the annual Limited Edition, Bremont never fails to surprise and impress – and we think Bremont fans are going to be pleased that this year’s release is certainly no exception. We’re quite pleased to introduce the new Bremont Supersonic Limited Edition: a very special watch that not only pays tribute to the fiftieth anniversary of a certain legendary supersonic passenger jet, it houses Bremont’s first-ever manually-wound movement, bearing finishing, architecture, and chronometric performance unique to this edition.
Limited to 300 pieces, the Supersonic Stainless Steel has been hand assembled by our skilled watchmakers at Bremont’s workshop in Henley-on-Thames. The Supersonic contains Bremont’s first ever manual wind movement which features an 8 day power reserve and has a power reserve indicator at the 12 o’clock position. The style of the timepiece is reminiscent of a 70’s look and feel with its sunburst white dial representing Concorde’s specially developed highly reflective paint. The blue hands of the Supersonic reflect British Airways blue on Concorde’s famous livery. The Bremont Supersonic incorporates a ring of aluminium from Alpha Bravo, Heathrow’s last remaining Concorde. The silhouette of this remarkable aircraft is subtly machined into the movement’s customised base plate and G-BOAB’s attributes feature in gold around the aluminium decoration ring. The beautiful bespoke packaging, which has been engineered and made in England, is a subtle nod to the iconic shape of Concorde. This timepiece comes on a Concorde Blue Connolly leather strap with pin buckle to complement case material.
