Following the journey of a relationship between two global companies who possess a shared interest and passion for aviation and the vital role that watches adopt for pilots throughout history. With a 100 year anniversary to celebrate in 2016, Boeing reflects on the historic milestones that were achieved over such a long period of time. The Bremont Watch Boeing Model 1 Ti-GMT and Model 247 Ti-GMT are the direct result of this pause for reflection.
Boeing believes that watches have been an integral part of aviation where pilots would use a watch, map and compass in the early days to plan their route. Choosing Bremont to collaborate with was a natural decision with their connection to aircraft and exceptional timepieces to date. It was extremely important that the partnership progressed further than simply a branded dial with the focus to be expressed via engineering and a visual aesthetic; the ultimate goal was to inject Boeing’s DNA into a timepiece.
A high level of research was carried out to ensure performance excellence - a top priority for both leading companies in their field. A thorough investigation into the latest materials with the best fit and form to manufacture exceptional quality chronometers. The finished models are executed from custom 465 steel and titanium that is used in Boeing aircrafts. The dials visual aesthetic is inspired by the view from the pilot seat when navigating the aircraft.
The Bremont Watch Boeing Model 1 is a tribute to the first aircraft that Boeing produced over 100 years ago and the Model 247 celebrates the first commercial airliner, which successfully changed the aviation industry forever. The two masterpieces capture the innovation and turning points for Boeing in their incredible history!
