Special Edition Battle of Britain Box Set

POA

As a tribute to the anniversary of the Battle of Britain, Bremont has created a rather special box set containing two timepieces in its honour.

    Description

    The limited run of box sets each comprises a pair of watches inspired by the two iconic aircraft that defended the nation, the Spitfire and the Hurricane. Paying homage to Bremont’s first historic limited edition, the EP120, the dial design of the chronograph is inspired by the Smiths clocks that can be found in the Spitfires that flew during the Battle of Britain. The ‘Bremont BOB Spitfire’ has a closed case back featuring a beautifully stamped top profile of the aircraft from which it draws inspiration, namely the Supermarine Spitfire, the most widely produced and strategically important British single-seat fighter of World War II.

    The Spitfire is renowned for winning victory laurels in the Battle of Britain along with the Hawker Hurricane, the aircraft which inspires the 40mm ‘Bremont BOB Hurricane’. This model takes design cues from the clocks seen in the iconic Hurricane and turning this piece over reveals its closed case back featuring a stamped profile of the British single-seat fighter aircraft.

    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.
