Following the pioneering development and dramatic success of the Bremont MB, the Bremont U-2, which has most of the advanced elements of the MB including the anti-shock rubberised movement mount, has been developed with added functionality through testing the watch to 100,000 feet and -40 degrees C in the laboratory and on missions. The watch was designed and tested extensively by the elite U-2 Spy Plane Squadron based at Beale, CA in the US. Three retail models are available, DLC, hardened stainless steel and the U2/BL which will be available at the end of May 2013. The dial has been designed for absolute clarity with its use of Superluminova® for all light conditions.
