Bremont unveils the ultimate aviation watch, incorporating original material from the 1903 Wright Flyer, plus its first unique movement
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 1903 Wright Flyer was built and designed by the Wright Brothers themselves in Dayton, Ohio, USA. It’s the invention and aircraft that changed the way we live today and it has now inspired our latest, and perhaps most unique, limited edition timepiece. The Wright Flyer timepieces feature some of the original fabric used on the 1903 Wright Flyer aircraft. Just as significantly, they showcase Bremont’s first ever proprietary movement, the BWC/01, part-developed and designed in Britain with our Swiss partners. Limited to 50 pieces.
