  • Bremont Supersonic (Concorde) Stainless Steel Limited Edition Watch Review




    WatchBox Reviews
    Published on Feb 1, 2019

    The Bremont Supersonic Limited Edition Stainless Steel is encased in 43mm of stainless steel surrounding a silver dial on a blue leather strap. This Supersonic is inspired by the Concorde supersonic transport that flew from the 1970s to 2003. The caseback spacer ring includes a piece of recovered aluminum from Heathrow's final display Concorde G-BOAB.

    The Bremont Supersonic is a limited edition of 300 pieces in stainless steel. Bremont's first manual wind caliber, the BE11M movement, includes a bridge cut in the shape of the Concorde. The movement has an 8 day power reserve, quick set date, and a beat rate of 21,600 vibrations per hour. The watch is water resistant to 100 meters.

    Functions include hours, minutes, small-seconds, 8-day power reserve, power-reserve indicator, and date. The watch also measures 13.2mm in thickness and 51.2mm from lug-to-lug.





    DESCRIPTIONLimited 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.

                Very cool watch stand and the caseback cut out "Concorde" is a great touch.
