A large part of Bremont’s ethos has been focused on the design, specification and quality of the materials used combined with our desire to produce a watch unrivalled in quality for its price bracket; as such we have been accused of over-engineering several parts of the watch. This could be the best available top execution Glucydur balance wheels used in all Bremont watches (as opposed to the ‘elaborate’ nickel equivalent found in many high-end luxury watches), or Bremont’s nine layers of anti-reflective treatment found on both sides of its sapphire crystals, or perhaps the B-EBE2000 hardening technology used on all Bremont watch cases making them, on average, 7 times harder and more scratch-resistant than its competitors. Bremont is also very proud to offer a three-year guarantee on all of its watches.
Bremont watch cases use Bremont Trip-Tick ® Construction consisting of three parts:
For both durability and aesthetics, the separate middle section allows our case designers to use differing metals, e.g. titanium, to alter the watch’s weight, while PVD allows Bremont to employ contrasting colours to distinguish between the various models.
All Bremont watches are treated for hardness with B-EBE2000® technology. This special stage in the case production, in which the metal is heat-treated and defused with carbon and then bombarded with electrons, gives the stainless steel a dramatically increased hardness and scratch resistance. On the Vickers scale of hardness, B-EBE2000® produces a watchcase with a value of 2000, which is approximately nine times that of the normal stainless steel used for watchcases.
Our sapphire crystals, convex and with a Mohs hardness rating of “9”(equivalent to 2000Hv on the Vickers scale), also have anti-reflective coatings applied to both sides of the glass. Untreated crystals can allow light to reflect back, which can significantly affect the legibility of the watch dial. The coating, with its carefully calculated thickness, is vapour-deposited onto the crystals in a vacuum environment, and is also specially treated to maintain a hardness of close to 2000Hv. Reflections are therefore reduced to less than 0.5%.
Features available in some models
The new Roto-click inner rotating bezel is controlled by an outer crown at 8H or 4H (depending on the model) and has a beautifully engineered ball-locking system containing a number of ball bearings that position the bezel accurately for greater readability.
Bremont does not make quartz watches but focus purely on beautifully made mechanical movements. Mechanical watches are inherently less robust so in order to overcome this a unique rubberised movement mount has been made to enclose the workings of the inner case, this is connected to the outer case, solely by a flexible ring. This ring absorbs shocks to the watch and allows the inner case and movement to float.
A number of Bremont models are designed to withstand the detrimental effects of magnetism on a watch’s movement. This is achieved, in the limited amount of space available, by encasing the movement in a soft-iron Faraday cage. Any potentially harmful magnetic fields are then routed around the movement.
