Bremont “Battle of Britain” Limited Edition Set

Bremont News & Releases

Bremont have always focused on creating timepieces capable of withstanding extreme environments and circumstances, which allowed them to become the industry titan they are today.

With a rich aviation and military heritage, Bremont watches are inspired by iconic aircraft, mechanical movements and historic events. A great example is the “Battle for Britain” Limited Edition Set. Only 80 of these sets will be produced, so don’t miss out on this opportunity.

Bremont “Battle of Britain” Limited Edition Set

The Battle of Britain, a military campaign that took place during the Second World War, saw the Royal Air Force defend the UK against the Luftwaffe. The battle occurred during the summer and fall of 1940 and has become an iconic moment in British history.

Bremont, with their passion for history and aviation, are honouring the 80th anniversary of the Battle of Britain with a set of two watches inspired by two iconic aircraft flown by the RAF, which were crucial to the country’s defence: the Spitfire and the Hurricane.

This limited edition box set includes an exclusive opportunity to fly in a vintage Spitfire in Duxford, UK; a plane which flew during the major air campaign. In the set, there is also a disc that can be engraved with the date of the flight, which we’re confident will be an unforgettable memory – perfect for history aficionados who also love the precision and quality of Bremont watches.

The Bremont “Battle of Britain” Limited Edition Box Set is available for £14,995 and can be ordered today at Banks Lyon.

Bremont BOB Spitfire

The Spitfire watch is reliable, precise and durable, so it’s an investment that will last a lifetime and more. The dial design of this chronograph is inspired by the Smiths clock found in the Spitfire aircraft that defended the nation during the Battle of Britain.

The metal dial comes with nickel hands coated with Super-LumiNova® coating, which improves visibility and readability in darker environments.

The closed caseback comes with a stamped top profile of the Supermarine Spitfire, the plane that inspired the watch; this aircraft was one of the most important single-seat fighters in the Second World War.

This stunning watch is based on the specification of the ALT1-ZT model and powered by the modified calibre 13 ¼’’’ BE-54AE automatic chronometer, which has 25 jewels and a power reserve of up to 42 hours. The Spitfire also features a DLC-treated Trip-Tick® case construction with patented inner bi-directional Roto-Click® bezel, as well as a 43mm case.

The watch has a water resistance of up to 100 metres and comes with functions like date at the 4 o’clock position and 24-hour GMT hand.

Bremont BOB Hurricane

This watch was inspired by the clocks that can be found in the Hawker Hurricane aircraft.

The 40mm hardened stainless steel Trip-Tick® case construction ensures the model is durable and sturdy, suitable for everyday use or outdoor adventures. The B-EBE2000 hardening technology used in this piece further ensures that the case is seven times harder and more scratch-resistant than other watches.

To improve the readability of this watch, nine layers of anti-reflective treatment have been applied to the sapphire crystal, which allows for great visibility even in extreme conditions.

The closed caseback has a stamped profile of the Hurricane fighter, a beautiful detail that adds to the charm of the piece.

When it comes to the movement, the watch has a modified calibre 11½’’’ BE-92AQ automatic chronometer, which features 21 jewels and power reserve of up to 38 hours. With functions such as hour, minute and sweeping seconds hands, stop second function and date in the 3 o’clock position, the piece truly has everything you could possibly want in a watch.

Just like the Spitfire, this watch also has a water resistance of up to 100 metres and nickel hands coated with Super-LumiNova® coating.

Both the Hurricane and the Spitfire are modern watches with contemporary technology, but they also provide a vintage and timeless aesthetic that perfectly match the historic event they commemorate.
