Bremont U2 watches are sleek and sophisticated. Built with powerful aesthetics, the Bremont brothers have dedicated years of their knowledge in aircraft manufacture, and a keen eye for superb timekeeping craftsmanship, to create a timepiece that embodies everything held close to the pioneer’s hearts. This crop of pedigree British luxury watches is developed for the elite in the aircraft industry, yet will also sit comfortably on the wrists of those professionals with their feet firmly on the ground.
Tested extensively by the elite Spy Plane Squadron in Beale, California, Bremont U2 watches take a military-inspired look to the next level with a collection of wristwatches fortified with strong robust case constructions and bold dials that deliver legibility first and foremost. The pilots of the Spy Plane Squadron test these beautiful British made wristwatches to the extreme, adorning them to the wrist whilst travelling up to 80,000 feet in the air. These Bremont watches are tested for durability, accuracy, pressure, shock and temperature changes, to ensure accuracy of the very highest calibre is never compromised when it comes to their functionality whilst in the cockpit.
Models from the U2 collection vary from the Bremont U-22 with an innovative bezel design and unique barrel colour, to the Bremont U-2-SS which features most of the elements of the MB model, including a rubberised anti shock movement. The dial designs of Bremont U2 watches are somewhat disciplined - down to earth - contemporary yet classic at the same time. The U-2/BL is a version with a striking midnight blue dial, that draws focus to the centre of the watch where a set of central hours lie, seasoned with the brand’s Super-Lumi-Nova technology for extra legibility. The metal dial has a beautiful patina to it. Dressed against these striking baton hour indexes in a shimmering silver colour, the 12, 6 and 9 o’clock places are the only locations on the dial that are represented by Arabic numerals.
Bremont choose a domed scratch resistant sapphire crystal glass to protect the dial of the Bremont U2 watch. The glass has undergone a total of 9 layers of anti reflective treatment, to work in conjunction with luminescent features on the dial, providing instant vital information needed whilst at the dashboard of the cockpit. A date aperture is presented at 3 o’clock – a feature that is visited every 60 seconds by a red arrow-tipped second hand. Housed inside a solid stainless steel case, integrated with Trip-Tick technology for extra rigidity, the 11 ½''' BE-36AE automatic chronometer is suspended at the very heart of the timepiece. The movement provides an impressive 38 hour power reserve a quality that will be welcomed by the travelling businessman for example.
These Bremont U2 watches are fitted with a smooth, beautifully refined leather band which adds a touch of sophistication to an office suit or to daytime smart casual attire. Making the perfect celebratory graduation gift, or a beautiful retirement present, the Bremont U2 watch is one of the brand’s proudest in-house manufactured timepieces. A luxury watch that celebrates traditional British craftsmanship with military-inspired aircraft success.
