In honour of their partnership with fellow car manufacturer Jaguar, Bremont continue their line of beautiful adrenaline-fuelled timepieces with a design inspired by the E-Type Jaguar racing cars. The innovation was a successful and highly iconic breed of car that in 1961, became the fastest production vehicle in the world. The relationship between Bremont and Jaguar sparked in 2010 with the creation of the Jaguar C-X75. The timepiece fitted with a unique analogue dashboard, captured the racing spirit of Jaguar’s success on the track – and the company loved it! Not only that, but the watch makers also took inspiration from the company’s composure, their bountiful passion and the dedication in abundance to achieving excellence and perfection in every creation.
The Bremont Jaguar collection consists of the MKI, the Bremont MKII and the Bremont MKIII watch. The 43mm timepieces are dressed win black dials with injections of red colour piercing the vastness of the dial to donate a sporty edge. The proud “Bremont” and “Jaguar” lettering is stamped to the north and south of the dial respectively whilst a discreet date aperture rests at 6 o’clock, remote and highly legible. Combined with a red coloured quadrant and chamfered hour and minute hands, which replicate the tachometer needle - these characteristics work harmoniously together, echoing the look of the Lightweight RPM gauge effortlessly. The steel polished crown at the 3 o’clock location on the bezel is inspired by the Dunlop racing tyres fitted to the Jaguar E-Type. The back of the Bremont Jaguar MK models expose the automatic winding rotor of the timepiece. The component takes the form of the alloy-spoked Lightweight E-Type steering wheel in miniature form.
Style wise, Bremont Jaguar watches are dedicated to serious luxury watch collectors who can easily appreciate the beauty of in-house manufactured timepieces. Each component is crafted and assembled into place with the highest level of precision. Not only that, but Bremont have worked hard to select only the finest in materials for a premium finish on every creation. The vintage-inspired Bremont Jaguar MKII Chronograph features an expertly polished bezel with push buttons at 2 and 4 o’clock that operate an accurate small seconds and 30 minutes dial. As with all Bremont watches, the company choose a clear lens to allow observation of the beauty in the watch’s dial. A double domed sapphire crystal glass front has received a total of 9 layers of anti reflective treatment to its surface in order to eradicate any chance of undesirable glare affecting the dial’s clarity. The 3 ¼''' BE-50AE automatic promises a 42 hour power reserve for extra reliability.
The Bremont Jaguar MKIII watch features similar qualities in terms of functionality and style. Without the chronograph scales, the dial is considerably more spacious. Suspended within a robust case construction fortified with Trip-Tick technology, the internal 11 ½''' BE-36AE automatic chronometer provides a power reserve of 38 hours and again, can be admired through a sapphire crystal caseback. A classic leather strap has been designed to cuddle the gentleman’s wrist comfortably, securing with a traditional polished stainless steel pin buckle.
Together the Bremont Jaguar MKI, MKII and MkIII models are perfect examples of the company’s prestigious collaborations with world-renowned manufacturers. The partnership in this case, certainly embodies everything considered important and admirable about Bremont watches.
