All the recent news from Bremont
Our ethos is bought to life in the design, specification and quality of the materials we insist upon. For example, we only use the finest Glucydur balance wheels as opposed to the 'elaborate' nickle equivalent found in many high-end luxury watches. Nine layers of anti-reflective treatment are applied to both sides of the sapphire crystals and B-EBE2000 hardening technology makes Bremont watch cases an average of seven times harder and more scratch-resistant than competitors'. The result is a distinctive range of classic watches. This uncompromising quality is reflected in the 3-year guarentee.
All Bremont watch cases use Bremont Trip-Tick ® Construction consisting of three parts:
The separate middle section offers flexibility in both durability and design. It allows us to manufacture cases from different metals, such as titanium, to alter the watch's weight. DLC, meanwhile, adds to the variety by using contrasting colours to distinguish between models.
The majority of Bremont models in the core range are treated for hardness with B-EBE2000® technology. During this special stage in the case production, the metal is heat-treated and diffused with carbon, then bombarded with electrons. The process dramatically increases the hardness and scratch resistance of the stainless steel. On the Vickers' scale of hardness, for example, B-EBE2000® produces a watch case with a value of 2000Hv - approximately seven times that of the normal stainless steel used for watch cases.
Our convex sapphire crystals come with a Mohs hardness rating of 9. That's also the equivalent to 2000Hv on the Vickers' scale. Untreated crystals can allow light to reflect back, significantly affecting the legibility of the dial. So anti-reflective coatings are vapour-deposited to both sides of the glass in a vacuum environment, reducing reflections to less than 0.5% for optimum legibility.
Features available in some models
Many Bremont watches have been designed from a clean sheet of paper. New bezel technology designed and built in-house is now integrated into a number of modes such as the MB range. The bezel rotates while gliding on a series of four ball bearings, which knit into the gearing to produce a most satisfying click for every minute rotated.
Designed by Bremont initially for the MB range of watches, our unique rubberised movement mount encloses the inner workings. A flexible ring then connects the mount to the outer case protecting the inner case and movement.
A number of Bremont models are designed to withstand the detrimental effects of magnetism on a watch’s movement. With a limited amount of space available, this is achieved by encasing the movement in a soft-iron Faraday cage. Any potentially harmful magnetic fields are then routed around the movement.
