Bremont SOLO Watch Review
Wednesday - 15 February 2012
The watch is designed as a pilot’s watch and is described as “an obvious choice for those wanting to enter the world of Bremont automatic chronometer.” The watch will be available with two different dial variants and the company says that a lot of thought went into making the face as legible as possible.
The style of the new wristwatch was inspired by the feeling pilots get when they first fly solo as their flight takes off from the runway. The SOLO has a classic Bremont 43mm Trip-Tick three-piece case and is powered by the modified BE-36AE movement.
Like all Bremont’s UK watches, the model’s case is hardened to 2,000 Vicker, rendering it six times as resistant to scratching as traditional steel. It’s due to be released in July this year.
Giles English commented: “Both Nick and I have always loved the classic pilot watches of the 40s and we felt that in our range there was room for a beautifully simple and very traditionally styled pilot's watch. We have used applied indexes to give more texture to the dial and have two options of black dials with both white and cream numerals."
