When Bremont burst onto the scene more than 10 years ago they were disruptive outsiders in a staid and often slow-moving industry. Since that time, the brand has gone from strength to strength — something that’s reflected in the solid, no-nonsense watches they make. And the Bremont 2019 collection is no exception, as we found out from co-founder Nick English …
Bremont S300 White
“It stemmed from the Supermarine … and the 300 is the 40mm version of that. We’ve come up with a white dial with a blue ceramic polished bezel, which is very, very lovely.”
Bremont MBIII 10th Anniversary
“A white-dial GMT that has an amazing story attached. [Martin-Baker] make 75 per cent of the Western world’s fighter ejection seats … for us it was amazing because it allowed us to put these watches through some incredible environmental testing.”
Bremont HMAF Broadsword
“The British Ministry of Defence approached us and said, ‘Would you like to work with us?’ … the first one is called the Broadsword, and it’s a tribute to the Dirty Dozen watches.”
Bremont HMAF Arrow
“The Arrow is a monopusher chronograph; it’s 42mm. I think it’s got a simple but lovely face.”
Bremont HMAF Argonaut
“The final one is the marine/navy version — it’s a bit more contemporary with the orange minute hand and internal bezel … I think it’s very different to anything else we’ve done, which I like too.”
So they’re the highlights of Bremont’s 2019 collection — check out the new range at the brand’s Melbourne boutique.
