    Default Bremont Victory Photos...

    Double retrograde chronometer chronograph - retrograde seconds and date. Nautical styling - reminiscent of marine chronometers and the Bremont B-1 Marine Clock, in my opinion. The slight "onion" crown "mushroom" pushers are quite different to the "normal" Bremont styling but look very "naval" to me. It looks classical, but modern. Will take a closer look and post more thoughts in due course...

    Looks superb...



    Not sure how much of the detail you can see from these photos - will try and get close-ups posted, but the new Bremont logo is at three, and there's a textured "lattitude / longitude" background to the dial, that may be picked out in a slight off-white colour (hard to tell).

    Your bleeding-edge Now is always someone else’s past. Someone else’s ’70s bellbottoms. Grasp that and start to attain atemporality.

    Pretty awesome looking! Very clean and sophisticated. Is that a Crocodile strap? Crown and pushers are very different than every other Bremont. Can't wait to see what they've done with the back side display!

    Won't it be a lump of wood with a copper nail through it?

    Yes. Looks like croc to me (sustainably sourced, one hopes).

    I'm not sure when we'll see the back / side shots. Hopefully soon, although the Press Release says that there won't be a model to actually handle / shoot until July.

    Possibly a nice copper barrel, not sure how they will introduce the oak though.

    In-house movement (or at least some part of the movement)? That's my question.

    yeah, that is one question, other would be price

    looking at it I found the layout to be pefectly pleasing...just the propeller under the Bremont name doesn't fit for me at that position.

    I think price I read £11,500 for steel version limited to 250 pieces and £17,500 for 18k / Steel limited to 40 pieces, could be wrong as I cant remember where I saw it now.
