October 2018 saw the release of Columbia Pictures' highly anticipated action-packed film Venom. Not only does the new Bremont U-2/51-JET appear in the film, but Bremont, in collaboration with the studio, teamed up with artist Adi Granov to paint the Bremont Broussard, the brand’s former 1950’s French military aircraft. Inspired by the iconic shark tooth design seen on the WWII fighters, Adi unleashed Venom on the nose of the Broussard.
Fitting with the dark and sombre tone of the film, the new stealthy Bremont timepiece can be seen throughout adorning the wrist of Eddie Brock, played by friend of the brand, Tom Hardy. The U-2/51-JET takes design cues from some of Bremont’s military work commissioned by the RAF’s 100 squadron members to complement their Hawk T1 Jet aircraft. The 100 Squadron was the first squadron formed for night bombing back in 1917 and its stealthy appearance inspired this ‘Jet’ black timepiece complete with a black smoked glass case back.
