    2016 will not only mark the 7,500th life saved by the pioneering British ejection seat technology designed by Martin-Baker, but also sees the launch of the Bremont MBII White. The bestselling MB range of watches has become iconicfor Bremont and the release of this model responds to a demand for a white dialled version of the timepiece, whichwas designed to be quite simply the definitive British aviation chronometer. Tested and designed in conjunctionwith the iconic British aviation company ‘Martin-Baker’, the MBII White offers a fresh and striking new look providingfurther choice to the classic collection. The new model features the distinctive knurled effect on the aluminium barrelinspired by components on the ejection seats themselves and will be available in orange, green and anthracite. Equallythe yellow and black loop at the end of the second hand is a direct reference to the ejection pull handle.

    Nick English, Co-Founder of Bremont: “The Martin-Baker collaboration is a partnership we are extremely proud ofas a company. The testing goes back many years and has led to some key technological developments in our watchdesign. They are an incredible British engineering success story and developing a new version of the already iconicMBII watch, has been a real honour.”

    Andrew Martin, Martin-Baker: “We have subjected this new MBII to some exciting tests, and unsurprisingly, the watchhas continued to pass with flying colours. It is a watch with a real story and a proper pedigree and we love that.”
    The MBII White very much retains the classic DNA that has made the MB a must-have for any serious collector. Ithas been put through the same intensive, extensive testing schedule that the ejection seats go through includingshock, vibration, temperature extremes, and salt-fog tests:




    LIVE EJECTION TESTING
    Live ejection launch (pictured above) puts the watch under extreme G forces.


    ALTITUDE TESTING
    The watches are held in an Altitude Test Chamber to simulate taking them up to100,000 feet for 60 minutes before being rapidly brought down again.


    AIRCRAFT CARRIER DECK TEST
    The ACDT test simulates the level of salt fog and humidity that an aircraft carrier deck would endure during a 6 month tour.Exposure to salt and then drying for 96 hours tests the watches against corrosion and the binding of moving parts.


    VIBRATION TESTING
    The test shakes and vibrates the watch on the wrist of a test dummy to simulate a 30 year life of an aircraft.


    EXTREME TEMPERATURE ENDURANCE

    The Bremont MB watches have been subjected to Temperature Testing to ensure they continue to operate in extremeconditions. The watch is held for one day in temperatures as low as -40° C, and then up to +40° C for a further 24 hours.


    MFOS CRASHWORTHY TEST
    The Multi-functional Operators seat (MFOS) is used in helicopters such as the Blackhawk. This particular testpictured was simulating a dynamic forward crash at over 18G, moving at 42ft per second.







    The robust nature of the MB is not only down to the testing, but the over engineered design of the watch. Boththe movement and mechanism of the Martin-Baker have been designed to ‘float’ in a controlled manner withinthe Bremont patented Trip-TickŪ case by attaching the inner case to it via a flexible ring. In doing so, shocks to themovement are minimised and shock energy absorbed. As well as this, the inner case that encloses the movementof the Bremont Martin-Baker has the function of an anti-magnetic shield. This inner case is made from soft ironand has been created to work as a ‘Faraday-Cage’ making the Bremont Martin-Baker watch immune to extrememagnetic fields, and a timepiece that has truly been ‘Tested Beyond Endurance’.




    ABOUT MARTIN-BAKER
    With facilities spanning the globe, Martin-Baker has established an extensive range of unique, specialist engineeringcapabilities. They ensure that all Martin-Baker products are of the highest quality and reliability and will alwaysperform as designed – first time, every time.
    Past and continued success has defined the iconic British company as the number one choice for over 88 air forcesthroughout the world, fitted to over 50 aircraft types. The equipment may represent a crew member’s last chanceto survive and there can be no compromise. Every facet of the safety system must work perfectly to safeguard aprecious life.
    Furthermore, aircrew members must reach the ground uninjured, especially in a hostile environment, if they are tohave the best possible chance of survival. This understanding is reinforced by 60 years of experience dating backto the first live ejection test in 1946 and the first life saved in 1949. So it comes as no surprise that Martin-Baker isthe only company worldwide able to offer a fully-integrated escape system that satisfies the very latest in pilotoperational capability and safety standards. To date, Martin-Baker has saved 7,488 aircrew lives for more than 93Air Forces.
