    "The timepieces had to capture the spirit of what is undoubtedly one of the most iconic sports cars of all time in a subtle and intelligent way.”
    Ian Callum, Jaguar Director of Design

    The MKII instantly transports the wearer back to the golden era of 1960s sports car motoring, its black dial carrying the Jaguar heritage logo above the six o’clock position and its hour markings being in the style of the numerals found on E-Type instruments.

    The classic chronograph layout - featuring two subdials at the three o’clock and nine o’clock positions - is achieved through the use of the beautifully decorated BE-50AE automatic movement which has been specially customised by Bremont to a unique specification, a subtle ‘red line’ on the 60-minute counter paying homage to the E-Type’s tachometer.

    The 43mm stainless steel case - which is fitted with a double-domed crystal to enhance the vintage appearance of the watch - is made entirely in the UK by Bremont using its renowned, three-part ‘Trip-Tick’ technology which ensures a hardness seven times greater than that of a normal steel watch.

    Visible through a sapphire crystal case back, the mechanism again pays tribute to the E-Type with an automatic ‘steering wheel’ winding weight in the same style as that of the MKI. Further automotive imagery can be seen in the ‘tyre tread’ winding crown, which is topped with the Jaguar heritage logo to match that of the dial.


    THE DIAL
    Drawing inspiration directly from the car, the 43mm watches feature a black dial based on the look of a Lightweight RPM gauge and a subtle ‘red zone’ quadrant. The chamfered hour and minute hands replicate the instrument’s tachometer needle.

    THE CASE
    The Trip-Tick® case is constructed from polished stainless steel and the winding crown is engraved with the pattern of the period-correct Dunlop racing tyres fitted to the E-Type.

    THE CASE BACK
    Turning the watches over reveals a further reference to the car in the form of the automatic winding rotor - visible through a sapphire crystal case back - which takes the form of an exquisite miniaturisation of an alloy-spoked Lightweight E-Type steering wheel.
