Bremont, new British aviator brand, has recently launched fresh non-chronograph models for those who need a distinctively designed three-handed watch. The brand's founders, Nick and Giles English, are devoted to their professional-pilot traditions. They developed the new models to sport a mixture of modern and classic aviator details.
The new BC-F1 and BC-S1 represent automatic time-and-date-only three-handed timepieces that have inherited the major design details of their chronograph predecessors: three-part case construction, curvy lugs, shades-of-gray finishes, the 2000-Vickers-hard-case. Both models have a day-date window positioned at 6 o'clock as well as sapphire backs and sapphire crystals provided with anti-reflective coating on both sides.
The reliability and durability of the new Bremont watches is proved by the COSC-chronometer certification. The timepieces sport rugged straps, locking crowns, radial-engine-like rotor design. They boast 100-meter water resistance. The watches are sold in beautifully designed wood-and-leather boxes with accessory drawers.
The dial of the Bremont BC-F1 watch is meant to resemble a historical aviator clock. The model's date window features a hardware trim around it. This distinctive detail reminds cylindrical wartime fuel gauges. The watch's dial has been created in a few color variations – white numerals on black dial, charcoal on salmon, white and brown on black, and black on silvered.
As for the Bremont BC-S1 watch, it is distinguished by a central chapter ring and the lack of hardware around the day-date window. The timepiece's dial also features a variety of color combinations - white numbers on black dial, black on cream, green and white on black. The look of the BC-S1 will remind you an altimeter.
Both Bremont BC-F1 and BC-S1 watches are powered by nicely finished and modified ETA 2836 base movement, renumbered as the BE-36AE Bremont caliber. The straight hands of the timepieces will make you think of the iconic IWC Mark 11 watch.
According to the Brothers English, the BC-F1 and BC-S1 watches will serve as a base for a new exclusive watch provided with unique characteristics and developed in a limited edition.
