DESCRIPTION

cheveron down

The DNA of the U-2 chronometer lies firmly with the military following the pioneering development and dramatic success of the Bremont military air-crew watch developed in association with the world’s largest ejection seat manufacturer, Martin-Baker. The elite 9th Reconnaissance Wing at Beale wanted a watch with the same testing history as the Bremont MB but one that had also been custom-tested to their own requirements. The finished U-2 chronometer has most of the advanced elements of the MB, including; the Anti-shock rubberised movement mount; designed to withstand the MB ejection seat program, but also added functionality.

ENGINEERED IN BRITAIN

cheveron down

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 proudly manufactures parts and assembles its timepieces in Henley-on-Thames, UK.

WHAT'S IN THE BOX

cheveron down

Your Bremont watch package is crafted with the highest level of care and detail at our headquarters in Henley-on-Thames.

Inside you will find your new Bremont watch accompanied by a luxurious leather wallet and dust bag, spare strap with spring bars and multipurpose watch tool. A Tech note wallet carrying your ISO 3159 certificate, international warranty, warranty card and other useful notes is also included inside your package along with your Bremont welcome pack and £25 voucher.


Trip-Tick® Case Construction

The iconic Trip-Tick® 3-piece case design provides durability and distinctive aesthetics from a scratch resistant, DLC treated barrel.


Multi-Layered Anti-Reflective Sapphire Crystal

The curved sapphire crystal has multiple layers of scratch resistant anti-reflective coating, far in excess of most luxury watches. We vapour-deposit anti-reflective coating on both sides of the crystal, reducing reflections to less than 0.5% for optimum legibility, whilst the hardness rating matches that of the steel case. This attention to detail and quality ensures your watch is legible in all light conditions and remains looking it's best without picking up scratches from normal wear.

Hardened Steel Watch Case

Bremont steel watch cases are seven times harder than normal stainless steel. Every watch case is heat-treated and defused with carbon, then bombarded with electrons. This process dramatically increases the hardness and scratch resistance of the stainless steel, allowing you to enjoy using your watch in every day situations and ensuring it stays looking it's best for as long as possible.

Anti-Shock Movement Mount

To protect your watch from damage, Bremont has incorporated a unique rubberised movement mount to encloses the inner workings of your watch. A flexible ring then connects the mount to the outer case, absorbing shocks and allowing the inner case and movement to float.

Bremont Roto-Click® bezel

Roto-Click® technology allows the bi-directional bezel to rotate whilst gliding on a series of four ball bearings, producing excellent accuracy, durability and a satisfying click for every minute rotated.


ANTI-MAGNETIC FARADAY CAGE

In the modern world we are constantly surrounded by magnetic fields which can have a detrimental effect on a watch movement. Bremont have developed a way to protect your watch from magnetism by encasing the movement in a soft-iron Faraday cage. Any potentially harmful magnetic fields are then routed around the movement.

Visibility At All Times

Being able to read your watch at night can be critical, so Bremont carefully applies as many as 20 coats of Super-LumiNova® paint to ensure optimal visibility in the poorest of lighting conditions.

Chronometer Rated with a 3 Year Warranty

Guaranteed to within -4 and +6 seconds per day, exceeding the requirements for Chronometer certification, Bremont watches are all manufactured to the highest levels of precision. In addition, every Bremont is backed by a 3 year warranty.
