Modified calibre 11 ½''' BE-36AE automatic chronometer with 38 hour power reserve. Hardened stainless steel Trip-Tick® case construction. Water resistant to 10 ATM, 100 metres. Calf-skin leather strap and Temple Island rubber strap.

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.
