Description

Bremont Longitude 18ct White Gold  -  Limited to 75 Pieces. (#64)

The Bremont Limited Edition Longitude pays tribute to Great Britain’s role in clock and watchmaking, and contribution to time, astronomy and navigation.

It has always been Bremont’s ambition to bring the art of industrial high-end watchmaking back to British shores and the classic yet contemporary design of the Limited Edition Bremont Longitude marks a significant milestone in this journey.

Not only does the Longitude house the brand’s first manufactured movement from its new ENG300 movement series but it also incorporates original brass from the historic Flamsteed Meridian Line at the Royal Observatory Greenwich, London.

At Greenwich, the brass Flamsteed Meridian line marks the historic position where the first Astronomer Royal, John Flamsteed, made his observations to discover Longitude and laid the foundations for accurate timekeeping and navigation.

Bremont launches the ENG300 movement series.

The 22 jewelled ENG376 movement boasts an enviabletechnical specification. With a depth of 4.95mm and diameterof 25.6mm, the ENG376 features a silicon escapement and acustom balance bridge and full tungsten rotor both designed to reflect the architecture of Bremont’s state-of-the-art headquarters at The Wing, the home of British watchmaking.

Renowned for beautifully made, yet robust and shock-proof timepieces, Bremont sought to make improvements wherever there was an opportunity to enhance the toughness of the base calibre. One notable improvement was choosing to utilise a full balance bridge, which supports the balance wheel assembly.

To fine tune the movement’s accuracy, traditional adjustment screws are used on the free sprung balance wheel, a more difficult method of rate adjustment, but also more precise, and links back to early marine chronometry. Further design changes include revisions to the escapement, the automatic winding bridge jewels and a modified wheel bridge amongst others.

Original brass from the historic Flamsteed Meridian Line at the Royal Observatory Greenwich, London, can be seen forming a ring in the back of the Longitude timepiece, engraved with the serial number of the watch. With a power reserve of 65 hours, this special timepiece has its power reserve indicator at the 6 o’clock position resembling the Royal Observatory Greenwich’s red time ball, a simple yet ingenious visual device that gave nineteenth century sailors accurate time. The Longitude also features a big date function and an off-set seconds hand at 9-o’clock.
