Limited Edition Hawking Quantum
A unique supernova
First Bremont women's Limited Edition
Dial entirely made from meteorite
Limited to 88 pieces
The Bremont Hawking Limited Edition Collection is dedicated to British scientist Stephen Hawking, whose study of time enhanced our understanding of the universe and beyond.
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 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 and every Bremont is hand-build and tested before leaving the Henley-on-Thames workshop.
For the first time Bremont has introduced a limited run of women’s watches as part of the collection. The Bremont Hawking Quantum is limited to 88 pieces. Unlike the men’s edition, it features a dial entirely made from meteorite and is beautifully paired with polished nickel hands. Turning the watch over reveals its open case back through which an exquisite and intricately hand-finished ‘black-hole’ automatic rotor can be seen. The rotor also incorporates a veneer of the oak from Hawking’s desk. The case measures 34mm in diameter with diamonds inset into the bezel as well as the index markers on the dial.

First women's Limited Edition
The Bremont Hawking Quantum is limited to 88 pieces and is available in stainless steel with a matte polished bracelet.
Unlike the men’s edition, The Quantum features a dial entirely made from meteorite and is beautifully paired with polished nickel hands
Swirling of a black hole rotor
Designed to our exacting specifications, the rotor is inspired by the swirling of a black hole, a nod to the black hole theory so prevalent in Hawking’s scientific theories.
Hawking's Treasured Possession
The wood sample in the swirling rotor originates from an oak, William & Mary slope-front bureau desk drawer thought to date back to the early 18th century.
Diamond inset Bezel and Markers
The case measures 34mm in diameter and incorporates diamonds inset into the bezel as well as the index markers on the dial, another first for Bremont.
REINVIGORATING THE BRITISH WATCH INDUSTRY
It is not completely unexpected to find that the world sets its time by Greenwich and not by Geneva. Whilst Geneva and Switzerland may be producing the vast majority of luxury wristwatches today, this certainly wasn’t always the case. In 1800 half of the world's watches, around 200,000 pieces a year, were produced on British shores by British watchmakers, which is an incredible statistic. Another wonderful statistic is that probably over 60-70% of the innovation in a modern day mechanical watch has come from Britain, including every major escapement design. Bremont's mission has always been to play a part in bringing back watchmaking to British shores.The Full story
