The Sporty Bremont Jaguar Anniversary Edition Watches

Bremont News & Releases

Bremont and Jaguar go hand in hand. The two brands have been collaborating since 2010, and this partnership is still going strong. The latest addition to the Bremont family is the Jaguar Anniversary Edition watches, which commemorate the 60th anniversary of the Jaguar E-Type supercar.

According to Nick English, Bremont co-founder, “being able to work with Jaguar on the 60th celebration of this iconic car is a real honour. There is so much detail and inspiration to work with on the watch designs and doing out first rally timer is a perfect and fitting tribute.”

The watches can be pre-ordered from Banks Lyon at the moment and will be available from June 7th.

Bremont and Jaguar: A British Collaboration

The partnership between these two titans began in 2010 when Jaguar commissioned a bespoke clock for the XJ75 Platinum Concept Car. This clock was mechanical, not quartz, and was incredibly functional and stylish – a perfect fit for the supercar and a great technical representation of what Bremont can do.

Later, the watchmaker was asked to create another clock, this time for the Jaguar C-X75 model. Bremont made a one-of-a-kind analogue dashboard clock that matched the sophistication of the 778 horsepower hybrid supercar.

This clock was removable and mounted in a turbine-inspired holder in the car’s console. One of the most interesting things about the relationship between the car and the watch is that the acceleration and braking forces were used to wind the mechanism.

In 2014, the British watchmaker launched a Jaguar E-Type collection to celebrate one of Jaguar’s most popular cars, the Jaguar Lightweight E-Type. The range captured the spirit of the supercar when it came to subtle, yet powerful, design and performance. The six chronometers also complemented the six E-Type sports racing cars that Jaguar builds.

Bremont continued to collaborate with Jaguar over the years, creating the D-Type mechanical watches that celebrated the Jaguar D-Type. This car won the Le Mans 24 Hours race three times, so it’s no wonder Bremont wanted to pay homage to such a fantastic achievement.

And, now, the two British brands are working together once more. Bremont Jaguar watches are just as high-performance, sleek and technologically-advanced as the cars that inspire them, and the new 60th Anniversary models are no exception.

Bremont Jaguar E-Type 60th Limited Edition Box Set

When it first launched, the Jaguar E-Type had 265 bhp, a 3.8-litre engine and a top speed of over 150 mph. It also cost half of what an Aston Martin and Ferrari cost and was a great symbol of the glamour of the 60s. Since then, this car has become incredibly influential in the motoring community, with Enzo Ferrari even describing it as the “most beautiful car ever made”.

To celebrate the 60th anniversary of the E-Type’s launch at the Geneva Motor Show in 1961, Bremont is proud to present 120 limited-edition box sets that comes with one of two different coloured bezel chronographs, 60 in green and 60 in grey.

The box set also comes with a rally timer, which comes with two mechanical instruments, a stopwatch with a tachymeter and a clock with sub-seconds.

Both are presented on a plate that used to be part of an engine, and which allows you to display the stunning timer anywhere you want – if you prefer, you can even have it fitted in your vehicle.

When you purchase a set, you’ll also find a unique driving experience offered by Jaguar inside. This will allow you to drive three E-Types at Jaguar’s Fen End facility.

The 43mm watches have a stainless-steel watch case and a chronograph complication, as well as a tachymeter bezel. They’re perfect for every occasion due to their sophisticated design, be it a sporty event or a casual day out, as well as outdoor adventures – especially because they’re water-resistant up to 200 metres.

Car connoisseurs and watch enthusiasts will be happy with the performance and technology in these limited editions, including the powerful self-winding automatic C.O.S.C. chronometer. You can glimpse this movement through the transparent caseback.

Both the Bremont Jaguar E-Type 60th Limited Edition Box Set (Grey Bezel) and the Bremont Jaguar E-Type 60th Limited Edition Box Set (Green Bezel) will be available for £12,995 or from £194.93 per month at 0% finance if you purchase from Banks Lyon.
