ENGINEERING. AND THEN SOME...
Both the movement and mechanism of the Martin-Baker have been designed to 'float' in a controlled manner within the Bremont patented Trip-Tick® case by attaching the inner case to it via a flexible ring.
In doing so, shocks to the movement are minimised and shock energy absorbed. As well as this, the inner case that encloses the movement of the Bremont Martin-Baker has the function of an anti-magnetic shield.
This inner case is made from soft iron and has been created to work as a 'Faraday-Cage' making the Bremont Martin-Baker watch immune to extreme magnetic fields, and a timepiece that has truly been 'Tested Beyond Endurance'.
FEATURES OF THE BREMONT MB
Many Bremont watches have been designed from a clean sheet of paper. New bezel technology designed and built in-house is now integrated into a number of models such as the MB. The bezel rotates while gliding on a series of four ball bearings. These bearings knit into the gearing of the bezel to produce a most satisfying click for every minute rotated.
TRIP-TICK ® CASE
A three-piece case construction consisting of a hardened steel top bezel and case back, with a central distinguishing knurled barrel design to protect the internal workings of the Bremont MB.
Designed by Bremont initially for the MB range of watches, our unique rubberised movement mount encloses the inner workings. A flexible ring then connects the mount to the outer case, absorbing shocks and allowing the inner case and movement to float.
After being manufactured in-house, cases are then treated with B-EBE2000 technology. The steel is heat-treated and defused with carbon, then bombarded with electrons producing a value of 2000Hv - approx. seven times that of normal stainless steel.
There are several striking middle barrel colours available to choose from for the MB range. The knurled effect is inspired by the intricately engineered mechanics of the Martin-Baker ejection seats.
ANTI-MAGNETIC FARADAY CAGE
A number of Bremont models are designed to withstand the detrimental effects of magnetism on a watchís movement. With a limited amount of space available, this is achieved by encasing the movement in a soft-iron Faraday cage. Any potentially harmful magnetic fields are then routed around the movement.
WHO IS MARTIN BAKER?
Martin-Baker is a British aviation company responsible for supplying 70% of the world’s Air Forces with fighter ejection seat technology. They first approached Bremont to create the definitive aviation watch in 2007. More than simply putting a logo on an existing model, the watch had to withstand the same rigorous testing programme as the ejection seats themselves. Two years later, the Bremont MBI was born. The limited edition MBI remains solely for pilots who have ejected from an aircraft using a Martin-Baker seat whereas the MBII and MBIII are available to all.
The MB Range is a must-have for any serious collector. It has been put through the same intensive, extensive testing schedule that the ejection seats go through.
