A luminous paint used on the dials of watch dial and does not display any radioactive properties. The luminous effect is based on the principle of phosphorescence. Super‑LumiNova® therefore needs to be charged by an external light source. As many as 15 to 20 coats of Super‑LumiNova® paint are applied to quality dials in very small measures to ensure that luminous dials are effective whilst not encroaching on the aesthetic qualities of a superior dial.
Titanium is a metal component that’s constituents provide low density and high strength. Titanium is light and comfortable for the Bremont wearer and has increased hypo allergenic qualities.
Trip-Tick® technology consists of 3 parts: the top bezel containing the sapphire crystal, the central body consisting of a middle barrel, and the steel or crystal back. For both longevity and aesthetics, the separate middle section allows our case designers to use differing constituents to alter the weight of the watch, and utilise contrasting colours offering variety between product styles.
UTC stands for ‘Universal Time Coordinated’ and allows the wearer to display local time together with the official world time standard – UTC, or Greenwich Mean Time (GMT), or Zulu time (Z). UTC (replacing GMT in 1972) is therefore used as the standard clock of choice for international reference time in communications, military, aviation, maritime and other activities that cross time zones.
A common scale used to determine the hardness of a material (using a pyramidal diamond indenter). The impression created by the diamond on the surface is measured and the hardness calculated. Stainless steel, for example, ranges from 200 to 240 HV, titanium 210 HV, sapphire crystal 2000 HV and diamond 4500 to 10,000
A pressure resistance of at least 10 Bar is guaranteed for every Bremont watch. This corresponds to the pressure of water at a depth of 100 metres statically tested. Water resistant properties cannot be permanently guaranteed and we therefore recommend that seals are checked annually.
