Bremont Watches Sea Clock Review
Wednesday - 15 February 2012
Today, the interest is much more aesthetic. Seafaring vessels don’t really use sails anymore, and rely upon GPS and radar to help find their way. But there is a speciality market for quality devices, created by high-net worth individuals and their affinity for all things classic. Indeed, the private yachts and sailing ships of today could all benefit from adopting sea clocks of old.
Bremont is taking such care to emulate Harrison’s successes that the pace of production will proceed at a very slow rate. Only 10 to 15 clocks can be produced on an annual basis. The clocks will come complete with a 30 day power reserve, track three time zones, and feature a 90 day chronograph.
Yet the owners and designers at Bremont aimed to do something else when they took up this challenge. They were sick and tired of seeing owners with fine timepieces on their wrists settling for quartz sea clocks on their vessels. Bremont recognised the need for sea clocks of a commensurate quality.
