Bremont 2021 Limited Edition Watches
Wednesday - 07 July 2021
Subject matter means a great deal to experts at Bremont, particularly the Bremont brothers, Nick and Giles, who enjoy taking a leading approach when it comes to directing the brand’s limited edition models. As far as limited edition Bremont watches go, they always seem to offer something extra special that the rest of the industry doesn’t seem to have yet caught onto. In many a limited edition Bremont watch, a real slice of history is often incorporated into its already-unique design. This may be a piece of wood taken from Bletchley Park in the famous Codebreaker watch, for example. It could be fragments of oak and copper incorporated into the Bremont Victory. It could even be a piece of wood taken from Stephen Hawking’s study desk in the Bremont Hawking timepiece. Whatever the special touches, whether they be a steering wheel-inspired winding weight or a Dunlop tyre tread-etched crown – every Bremont limited edition watch is as unique as the wrist that wears it. Let’s take a look at the new Bremont limited edition watches released in 2021.
Bremont Jaguar E-Type 60th Anniversary Limited Edition Box Set
It has been 60 years since Jaguar’s iconic E-type sports car sent ripples across the British car industry. If you’ve been collecting Bremont watches for years, you’ll already know that the new Jaguar E-type 60th Anniversary Limited Edition watch does not mark a new collaboration between the two British manufacturers. Bremont teamed up with Jaguar back in 2014 and created six limited edition watches to match the six exclusive Lightweight E-type cars designed by the car brand. Bremont’s range of MKI and MKII watches echoed the speedometers and rev counters found at the wheel of the Jaguar E-Type, whilst the mechanism beating inside each watch paraded a ‘steering wheel’ winding weight. Bremont then released the Jaguar D-Type watch, paying homage to the car that won the Le Mans 24 Hours race three times between the years 1955 and 1957. Now, in 2021, Bremont has revealed a new Jaguar E-Type watch – a 60th-anniversary limited edition box set that will feature a model executed in one of two colours alongside Bremont’s first-ever rally timer and a unique driving experience hosted by Jaguar Classic.
Whether it’s the “Flat Out Grey” or “Drop Everything Green” watch that catches your eye, these limited edition Bremont Jaguar E-Type watches capture the British watchmaker’s motorsport spirit and the supercar’s powerful performance. Limited to 60 pieces each, the designs evoke the Drop Everything Green ‘77RW’ roadster and the iconic Flat Out Grey ‘9600 HP’. Both models feature a matching grey or green bezel, a 42mm steel case and promise 200-meter water resistance. A scratch-resistant DLC treated case barrel, screw-down winding crown and screw-down pushers also complete each model’s profile. The watches are both powered by the BE-50AE automatic winding movement, which provides a 42-hour power reserve. Both models feature a small second counter at 9 o’clock, a central chronograph hand and a 30-minute sub-dial at 9 o’clock.
Both black dials boast a bi-compax chronograph layout, with chamfered hour and minute hands inspired by the car’s tachometer needle. The period-inspired Dunlop racing tyres fitted to the E-type have been engraved into the surface of the crown. The rally timer, which comes with every box set purchase is Bremont’s very first. The left is a stopwatch and tachymeter dial, powered by the BE-35M manual wind stopwatch movement, while the right instrument is a manually-winding clock powered by the BE-90M modified calibre paired with a rotating bezel.
Bremont RFU 150 Limited Edition
The release of Bremont’s RFU 150 Limited Edition watch came just in time for the Guinness Six Nation’s Rugby league this year and celebrated the watchmaker’s role as Official Timing Partner to both England Rugby and Twickenham Stadium. Limited to 150 pieces worldwide, the timepiece cements the bond that Bremont has enjoyed with the RFU since 2020.
As well as delivering all of Twickenham stadium’s official time-related match day content, the British watchmaker has also provided the stadium with match clocks. Prior to the Guinness Six Nations 2020, Bremont developed the stunning Rose timepiece, now it has unveiled the RFU 150 Limited Edition watch. Some of its key features include a GMT function and a chronometer-certified movement. The 43mm stainless steel case has been executed in a mix of satin-finished and polished techniques but is also furnished with a helium escape valve for deep underwater exploration. Should you wish to take the Bremont RFU 150 watch that far down underwater, you can do so quite comfortably. A screw-down crown with a crown protector enables the steel case to uphold its promise of 500-meter water resistance. A patented anti-shock movement mount ensures the BE-93-2A is in good hands as it performs at a rate of 28,800 vibrations per hour. The movement is also capable of providing a 42-hour power reserve.
If it is one distinct feature that distinguishes this Bremont limited edition watch from any other model, however, it is the indications on the unidirectional rotating bezel. These show the approach of half and full-time intervals in red, as well as any extra-time added on in white. Whilst the blue tone of the dial is inspired by the England Rugby team’s alternative kit, the Heritage Rose emblem is proudly ingrained into the back of the case.
