My Bremont

Solo - white dial, the watch I wore across the line in the 2016 Rio Olympic final.

Most interesting place I’ve taken my Bremont

Up to the statue of Christ the redeemer in Rio de Janeiro the day after I won the Olympics. Fascinating, historic, world renowned location with views that take your breath away!



Designed as a classic pilots watch, the SOLO is an obvious choice for those wanting to enter the world of Bremont automatic chronometers. No pilot ever forgets their first solo flight and the exhilaration as the wheels leave the runway. This feeling was undoubtedly an inspiration behind the SOLO and with it the ability to leave a long lasting impression on its wearer.
