Bremont Watch releases the Boeing watch range, exclusively using Boeing aeroplane materials that have never before been incorporated in watch manufacture.
3 year warranty
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 at least a 3-year warranty on every timepiece.
Proudly made 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. Every Bremont is hand built and tested before leaving the Henley-on-Thames workshop.
The Bremont Boeing Model 247 represents the debut chronograph in the collaboration, named after the first Boeing twin-engine commercial aircraft. The two ‘twin-like’ sub-dials tastefully reflect this inspiration. The Model 247 Stainless Steel is built from exceptionally tough Custom 465® Stainless Steel. The hardened case incorporates screw down crowns and chrono pushers, together with an exhibition sapphire crystal case back.

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.
Hand-built in England
Every Bremont watch is hand-built by Bremont-trained assemblers in our Manufacturing & Technology Centre in Henley-on-Thames, the home of British watchmaking.
