Reviewing the Rose Gold Bremont Longitude Limited Edition

Jura Watches will be holding all three versions of a new Limited Edition Longitude watch by Bremont. This version, crafted from 18ct rose gold is limited to 75 pieces and is set to sell out. Official Bremont watch stockists, Jura Watches has the first images and exclusive details on the new rose gold Longitude watch, which is now available to pre-order with us.

 

If it were not for genius findings like the Flamsteed Meridian Line in Greenwich you have to ask where we’d be in terms of accurate timekeeping and navigation at sea. Not just that, though. Where would we be without innovations like the new Bremont Limited Edition Longitude watch that pays homage to such a concept? Thanks to first Astronomer Royal, John Flamsteed, who began charting nearly all 3000 stars on a map using a telescope in 1675, the world could adopt Greenwich as the centre of time and longitude zero.

 

 

It was believed that lunar distances or the positions of Jupiter’s moons could be used to determine longitude and so by acquiring an accurate mapping of the stars, the Royal Observatory Greenwich, founded by King Charles II became the point of reference at which Flamsteed perfected the art of navigation at sea. By the eighteenth century, almost all vessels were using charts based on the Greenwich Meridian Line. Paying homage to this, Bremont releases the new rose gold Limited Edition Longitude watch.

 

The new Bremont Limited Edition Longitude Rose Gold watch

 

To mark this milestone in the history of navigation and timekeeping, Bremont has released a trio of elegant timepieces that house a new in-house movement as part of its ENG300 movement series. This is a first for the British watchmaker, who opened a brand-new manufacturing facility earlier this year called The Wing. The Bremont brothers are going from strength to strength despite the restraints brought over the watchmaking industry during the pandemic over the last couple of years. The rose gold version of the Bremont Limited Edition Longitude watch is exclusive to just 75 pieces worldwide. The proposition of a first manufacture movement and a limited edition series is expected to be a complete sell-out and we here at Jura Watches have all the exclusive information, along with a pre-ordering system for those who want to get their hands on one.

 

 

The 18ct rose gold version of the new Bremont Limited Edition Longitude watch measures a compact 40mm diameter and features a domed sapphire crystal glass top that reveals some pretty special features, not to mention the piece of original brass that forms a ring around the movement underneath an integrated sapphire crystal glass caseback. The brass ring of meridian line insert is set behind the sapphire crystal with Longitude coordinates relating to the Royal Observatory in Greenwich. A special feature like this is standard for Bremont, who has incorporated authentic slivers of history into its unique limited edition watches on several occasions over the years. The matching rose gold perimeter of the watch’s caseback is also secured into place with screws featuring polished heads and the case offers 50-meter water resistance.

 

 

Onto the dial of the new rose gold Bremont Longitude watch and here you’ll see an anthracite-coloured metal dial with a raised central globe and debossed longitude lines, including a meridian line that runs from 12 o’clock down to 6 o’clock. Whilst your eyes are on the southern hemisphere of the dial, take note of the red power reserve indicator at 6 o’clock, whose shade is taken from the red ball seen at the top of the Observatory in the Greenwich building. There’s also a recessed silver-filled running seconds sub-dial at 9 o’clock and a big date feature at 3 o’clock. The traditional rose gold Roman numeral hour marker at 12 o’clock is accompanied by Super-LumiNova-treated rose gold indexes around the rest of the track. These match the rose gold-plated central hour and minute hands propelled by the in-house Bremont movement.

 

A new in-house Bremont movement

 

The ENG300 Calibre is a self-winding engine that features a silicon escape wheel and pallet that runs at 25,200 vibrations per hour. There’s also a free-sprung hairspring with anti-shock protection and a solid tungsten oscillating weight. Plus, the movement provides a very useful 65-hour power reserve whilst putting its performance and decoration on view through the sapphire-backed case. This decoration includes rhodium-plated bridges with a gold-plated automatic bridge.

 

 

The 18ct rose gold Bremont Limited edition Longitude watch is completed on a dark brown alligator leather strap with cream contrast stitching down the sides. The effect gives the watch a vintage-inspired feel. There’s also an 18ct white gold version of the Longitude watch that is also limited to 75 pieces, which you can check out here, or 150 pieces of a steel version available here. If you’d like further details, however, please feel free to call our Jura Watches sales team for more exclusive details on 01335 453453
