Every Bremont watch is mechanical and hand built in the UK

Great Britain has a wonderful history when it comes to watch making and has probably been the home to more advances in horology than any other nation. Bremont is determined to play a pivotal role in the reinvigoration of this industry on British shores and as a result, Bremont manufactures parts at its Parts Manufacturing Facility and every Bremont is hand-build and tested before leaving the Henley-on-Thames workshop.

We offer 3 a year warranty on every Bremont timepiece

Bremont focuses purely on beautifully made mechanical movements and every watch in our core collection has passed each of the rigorous precision tests necessary for the ISO 3159 chronometer designation. Every movement is finished to the highest levels of craftsmanship and all are guaranteed to within -4 and +6 seconds per day. For this reason Bremont is one of the few watch makers to offer a 3-year warranty on every timepiece.

Description

cheveron down

At a time of austerity, one American defied convention to build the largest aircraft in the world. Famously known as the ‘Spruce Goose’, the H-4 Hercules and Howard Hughes’ genius was defined by one minute. One minute of flight on 2nd November 1947. In that time Howard Hughes’ vision for the greatest aircraft ever built was vindicated. It’s fitting therefore that the aircraft is being commemorated by a timepiece of this stature. 

A sublime fusion of micro-engineering, watch design and aviation history, the Bremont H-4 Hercules Platinum Limited Edition chronometer is limited to only 75 pieces. It salutes this iconic flying boat of the 1940s and contains original birchwood from its fuselage. A percentage of the proceeds from each limited edition will go towards the preservation of the aircraft at the Evergreen Aviation & Space Museum in McMinnville, Oregon, USA.



Movement

The 25 jewel Bremont BWC/02 movement is based on the original proprietary automatic BWC/01 calibre built in partnership with movement house, La Joux Perret, and is housed in a beautifully finished 43mm case. The new slate grey coloured BWC/02 movement has GMT functionality, along with hours, minutes, a smaller non-hacking seconds hand at 9 o’clock and the date at 6 o’clock. Each Bremont H-4 Hercules Limited Edition rotor is constructed using original birch wood from the H-4 Hercules fuselage, which has been carefully incorporated into each propeller blade.

Engineered in Britain

cheveron down

Much like the ‘Spruce Goose’, the new Bremont Limited Edition timepiece has been crafted as much as manufactured and each is carefully hand-built and tested at Bremont’s state-of-the-art workshops in Henley-on-Thames, UK. The limited edition bridle leather packaging, which also incorporates original aileron fabric from the aircraft that flew on the 2nd November 1947, is beautifully designed and manufactured in England.

"I want to be remembered for only one thing; my contribution to aviation."

Howard Hughes

A first for Bremont

This is the first time Bremont have produced a watch in a platinum finish. The design of the Bremont H-4 Hercules Limited Edition is reminiscent of the 40s style of the aircraft, from the dark brown tones to the beautifully applied numerals, every aspect of the timepiece harks back to Howard Hughes’ masterpiece of aviation engineering.

A Piece of History

Each Bremont H-4 Hercules Limited Edition rotor is constructed using original birch wood from the H-4 Hercules fuselage, which has been carefully incorporated into each propeller blade.

Trip-Tick® Case

The Bremont H-4 Hercules Limited Edition features the iconic 43mm Trip-Tick® case design in platinum.

Galvanic finishing

The new slate grey coloured BWC/02 movement has GMT functionality and the design has been inspired by the distinctive colour of the aircraft itself.

Made in Britain

The bridle leather packaging, which also contains original aileron fabric from the H-4 Hercules that flew on November 2nd 1947, has been designed and manufactured here in England.

World’s largest flying boat makes first and final flight

The H-4 Hercules and, to a degree, Howard Hughes’ genius was defined by one minute. One minute of flight on 2nd November 1947. In that time Howard Hughes’ vision for the greatest aircraft ever built was vindicated. It’s fitting therefore that the aircraft is being commemorated by a timepiece of this stature.
