Available in stainless steel, rose gold or white gold, the new trio extends Bremont’s tradition of incorporating parts of history into its timepieces. This time around, the watchmaker has collaborated with Royal Museums Greenwich, which donated a part of its brass beam from the Royal Observatory which runs along the Prime Meridian Line at zero degrees longitude.
Powering the collection is the all-new ENG300 automatic movement, Bremont’s latest achievement in its historical watchmaking journey. Conceived in Switzerland by THE+, the K1-based calibre features crucial components manufactured at the British company’s own “The Wing” facility in Henley, U.K. At just 4.5mm thin, the 22-jewel, 25,200 beats-per-hour calibre offers small seconds and date complications with a power reserve of 65 hours, giving you plenty of time to work with even when you opt for something more casual over the weekends.
Finishing the timepieces are premium leather straps to match each variation, with the stainless steel model carrying an alligator-embossed calf leather option, the rose gold model carrying a brown alligator option, and the white gold model carrying a black alligator option.
For those interested, Bremont’s new limited-edition Longitude collection will be available in early December. The stainless steel variant will be limited to 150 pieces and go for $16,995 USD, while only 75 will be made for the rose gold and white gold variants each, retailing for $23,995 USD and $24,995 USD respectively.
