Bremont Limited Edition Michael Wong MW Heli Chrono Watch Review


Bremont has partnered with actor and professional helicopter pilot Michael Wong to create the MW Heli-Chrono, a made-to-order limited edition timepiece.

Michael Wong is Specialist Flight Lietuenant (Flying Stream) in the Hong Kong Air Cadet Corps, and has appeared in over 50 films, including the lead role in 1998 movie 'Beast Cops' which won a Hong Kong Film Award.

Designed in collaboration with Wong, the new Bremont MW Heli-Chrono is based on the ALT1-P Chronograph range and is a limited edition of just 50 pieces.
Bremont co-founder Giles English said: "Michael is a wonderful person who I have full admiration for as a result of what he has achieved in both his acting and aviation career. He is a great ambassador for Bremont and an inspiration to be around and this new watch really has Michael's DNA within it."
The MW Heli-Chrono was inspired by helicopter design elements, featuring a helicopter-shaped small second indicator and a rotor designed as a helicopter fenestron. It is the first Bremont chronograph to have a black DLC case.

The modified automatic chronometer (COSC) certified BE-54AE movement can be seen through a sapphire exhibition crystal on the case back. The unique black DLC Trip-Tick Bremont case has a hardness and scratch resistance of 2000 Vickers, and the sapphire crystal has nine layers of anti-reflective treatment on each side, reducing light reflections by up to 95%. The watch comes with a spare NATO style nylon and velcro strap and a watch strap changing tool, and is presented in a hand-made leather travel wallet made in England.
"As a keen watch enthusiast and pilot I love what Bremont have been doing with their watches and whilst flying with Giles I gave my view on rotary aviation and how this could impact a watch," Michael Wong said. "Giles took this on board and we created the Bremont MW Heli-Chrono, a watch that I am very proud of."

Selected buyers of the Bremont MW Heli-Chrono will be offered a helicopter flight over Hong Kong with Wong. "I felt it was important to add another dimension to ownership of this watch," he said. "Bremont is all about authenticity, with real and present roots in aviation. I want those people to experience that."
The Bremont Michael Wong MW Heli-Chrono LE is available to order for £4,550 while stocks last. As each watch is made to order, delivery will take 3-4 weeks.
