The finest of them all, the ALT1-C brings together the art of watchmaking with the very best of technical innovation, precision and durability.

    Description

    This model in particular pays tribute to the Spitfire that brand Co-Founders Nick and Giles English’s father operated and is now owned by Rolls-Royce. The PR Mk XIX was the last of the specialised photo reconnaissance variants of the Spitfire, one of the few with a Griffon engine and arguably the finest of them all. The ALT1-C Griffon remains true to each of the technical principles behind any revered automatic timepiece. Integrating an impeccably modified, chronometer-rated Valjoux 7750-SO BI AC movement, the ALT1-C Griffon brings together the art of watchmaking with the very best of technical innovation, precision and durability. Pictured here on a brown vintage leather strap.

    A watch for all occasions

    Your watch has been carefully designed to perfectly match its strap, but don’t let that stop you adding your own flair and experimenting with further combinations.

    The strap can make your watch look completely different so have a play ‘watch wardrobing’ your desired model and add options to suit any occasion.

    British Made

    REINVIGORATING THE BRITISH WATCH INDUSTRY

    It is not completely unexpected to find that the world sets its time by Greenwich and not by Geneva. Whilst Geneva and Switzerland may be producing the vast majority of luxury wristwatches today, this certainly wasn’t always the case. In 1800 half of the world's watches, around 200,000 pieces a year, were produced on British shores by British watchmakers, which is an incredible statistic. Another wonderful statistic is that probably over 60-70% of the innovation in a modern day mechanical watch has come from Britain, including every major escapement design. Bremont's mission has always been to play a part in bringing back watchmaking to British shores.
