Have these been out already or is 2014 a typo?

I don't believe they have been on sale yet.

It wasn't a typo - they just didn't realize that 2014 ends on December 31st :grin:

The white dial 3-hand steel is HOT.

Yep, was blown away by the white dials when I saw them at a Bremont event this summer. Pics really don't do these justice.

Hi all,

I really do love both the black three hand and chrono versions of this watch as just think it looks stunning with its uncluttered and clean dial and clean looking case. The only thing that has stopped me from actually buying one besides the fact it hasn't been available yet is the price as here in the UK the three hand version costs £3,595 and the Chrono is £4,495 and as beautiful as I think they are I really do think that is too much for what they are especially in comparison to what else is available in the market at those prices. Also there just doesn't seem to be the same grey market or 2nd owner availability here in the UK that there seems to be in the US. I wish I could own one of these but just find pulling the trigger on one to hard to do as feel I would end up with buyers remorse still doesn't stop me thinking they are stunning watches though.

Hey Marc,

Is that the MRSP or what you'd actually pay? Here in the US there is typically a discount off the MRSP.

Hi AntonioPD,

I believe that is MSRP and the prices came from CW Sellors/ Jura who are a specialist independent luxury watch retailer consisting of 8 watch boutiques and a market leading e-commerce website and an official Bremont authorised dealer. The only good thing for the UK market at the moment is that many retailers are offering 0% interest free credit with a 10% or larger deposit and up to 4yrs payment period which is useful to say the least.

The other retailers for Bremont all seem to also be official authorised dealers and all have exactly the same pricing but as I have not spoken to any I can't say for sure if they would or wouldn't offer any discount or not. Also the only 2nd hand seller I could find for Bremont only had 2 MB2'S for sale one was a 2009 watch and only £900 less than new the other was 2010 watch and only £800 less then new which is not very appealing to say the least especially compared to what I have seen pre owned Bremont's selling for in the US.

It's not that Bremont Boeing is out of my price range it is the fact that I just don't feel it offers good value for money as IMHO as nicely made and finished the movement is it really isn't anything that special even with the specially finished rotor and other custom parts it has. The case is also stunning and finished beautifully IMO and I really do think it is a well designed and well made and finished watch just a very expensive one for what it is MO.

I have to admit for full disclosure that I did actually find a watch I liked on Thursday by accident whilst looking at something else and after thinking about it for a couple of days went and got it this afternoon but I'm in too much pain right now to say much about it but hopefully tomorrow when I wake up I will do a review.
