Time began for Bremont in 2002, when we embarked on a journey to make beautifully crafted pilot’s watches of exceptional quality. Inspired by a love of flying historic aircraft, of watches and all things mechanical, our timepieces had to be tested beyond the normal call of duty.
New for 2018, the U-2/51-JET incorporates a striking combination of the brand’s trademark vintage ’51’ lume, originally found on the Limited Edition P-51, together with heat treated steel blued hands. The U-2/51-JET adds a new dimension to the existing range, taking fresh design cues from a military project commissioned by the RAF’s 100 squadron members to celebrate their centenary and complement their Hawk TI Jet aircraft. The 100 Squadron was the first squadron formed for night bombing back in 1917 and its stealthy appearance led to the introduction of a new case and middle barrel colour for this watch, aptly named ‘Jet’. Turning the watch over reveals an exhibition case back showing the beautiful automatic movement through tinted black smoked glass.
