  • Bremont Supersonic Limited Edition Watch



    Ahead of her time in more ways than one, Concorde flew faster than a rifle bullet and halved the time of transatlantic crossings. Over 2.5 million British Airways passengers experienced flying eleven miles high at twice the speed of sound. This evocative civilian airliner completed more supersonic flying hours than the entire world’s air forces combined.

    To celebrate the 50th anniversary of an aircraft both brilliant and beautiful, Bremont has launched its eighth historical limited edition timepiece, the Bremont Supersonic, incorporating parts of one of the most famous and iconic planes in history – Concorde. Find out more or view the launch video and watches below.

    DESCRIPTION
    Limited to 300 pieces, the Supersonic Stainless Steel has been hand assembled by our skilled watchmakers at Bremont’s workshop in Henley-on-Thames. The Supersonic contains Bremont’s first ever manual wind movement which features an 8 day power reserve and has a power reserve indicator at the 12 o’clock position. The style of the timepiece is reminiscent of a 70’s look and feel with its sunburst white dial representing Concorde’s specially developed highly reflective paint. The blue hands of the Supersonic reflect British Airways blue on Concorde’s famous livery. The Bremont Supersonic incorporates a ring of aluminium from Alpha Bravo, Heathrow’s last remaining Concorde. The silhouette of this remarkable aircraft is subtly machined into the movement’s customised base plate and G-BOAB’s attributes feature in gold around the aluminium decoration ring. The beautiful bespoke packaging, which has been engineered and made in England, is a subtle nod to the iconic shape of Concorde. This timepiece comes on a Concorde Blue Connolly leather strap with pin buckle to complement case material.

    Bremont Supersonic Limited Edition Watch

    OCT 31, 2018 — BY AARON SHAPIRO

    On October 24, 2003, British Airways retired the legendary Concorde passenger liner, marking the end of an era where airline passengers could fly over the Earth at speeds in excess of Mach 2 or twice the speed of sound. To some, it may seem that we’ve taken a solid step backward since then when it comes to transportation, but it hasn’t been forgotten. To commemorate the 50th anniversary of this legendary aircraft Bremont has released their newest limited edition – the Bremont Supersonic watch that incorporates metal from the actual planes.

    “America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.
    If destruction be our lot, we must ourselves be its author and finisher.
    As a nation of freemen, we must live through all time, or die by suicide".
