Bremont Watch Supports Transatlantic Solo Row


Bremont is the Official Timekeeper for British rower Charlie Pitcher's 3,000-mile transatlantic solo row.

Using the world's most advanced ocean rower, Pitcher will begin in La Gomera, off the northwest coast of Africa, and finish in Antigua where the northeastern Caribbean Sea meets the western Atlantic Ocean.
Due to take place in January 2013, this will be Pitcher's second attempt at the challenge, where he aims to break the previous record of 40 days, 9 hours and 44 minutes. Each day, he will row for 16 hours, manage the boat for 4 hours, and sleep for the remaining 4 hours.
"This is the biggest physical and mental challenge I will ever put myself through, but with the right attitude to training and preparation as well as sheer determination, I believe anything is possible," Pitcher says. "With the race against the clock, who better to have as my official timekeeper than Bremont."

Bremont co-founder Giles English said: "We are thrilled to be supporting Charlie on his world record attempt. When he approached the brand we knew how determined he was to succeed. Bremont are always looking for interesting explorers to link with and this challenge is a great fit for us with the need for perfect timing precision as well as testing the upmost durability and strength."

Pitcher will wear a Bremont ALT1-P throughout the challenge. The ALT1-P has a 43 mm hardened stainless steel Trip-Tick case with scratch resistant PVD treated case barrel, and a domed anti-reflective, scratch-resistant sapphire crystal. The watch has a patented inner bi-directional Roto-Click bezel, operated by a crown at 8 o'clock, and hands coated with SuperLumiNova C3 luminous coating. Movement is modified BE-53AE automatic calibre, certified by COSC.
