Really like the new Bremonts

Those two look perfect, although I *fear* what their pricing will be. They look amazing but it would be a struggle to decide for me if they're priced at IWC prices. If they had a tri-compax layout (Daytona) I would be listing my watches right now.

This one looks a bit derivative of where IWC took the new Mark series, kinda disappointing they copied the date window style.

You still have watches!??!

(I do like these new introductions better than the initially introduced Boeings, but at the same time, not quite enough for me to pull the trigger on these).

I like the U-22, I like the dial color and the bronze midcase.....they got the idea for the date window the same place IWC got their idea for their date window from the cockpit altimeter, so I don't think it's a copy per se...either way, I'm okay with the window. I do wish, however, the inner bezel was a timing bezel and not a commpass configuration.

and yes, both chronos are fantastic

I'm entirely off the brand, but the gray one is cool.

I'm digging both the Alt-Z and the U22.

Right now I'm into the titanium Boeings, the new Alt1-Z and the U-22, though with respect to the latter, I could do without the triple date window. They'll all be at Red Bar tomorrow night, so I'll try to get some "live" pics up.

As for the Jaguars, which seem to the darlings of Basel, I've never been a fan of co-branding on a dial face, but I'll be seeing them in person on Thursday -- they're doing a special event in conjunction with Jaguar at the Freedom Tower -- so I'll report back then with my thoughts.

Regards,
Adam

Agreed on the co-branding. The watches are winners otherwise. :thumbsup:

Co-branding or not, the Jags are stunning.

I really like the two that Jae posted, and the Jaguars (I prefer the time only version) are very cool.

It seems like Bremonts design team does a better job year after year. I hope they keep it up and keep.

I like both of the ones Jae posted...Love the dial color of the U-22, the triple date not so much..
if I had a Jaguar I'd buy one of those but otherwise I wouldn't...

I really like the Limited Edition models (pricing aside)....I think they are well thought out...

I wish they would offer some models in the 40-41MM range...

:cheers:

I think the ALT1-ZT may be my next Bremont, but the rotor on the Jags is really something!

I like the ALT1-ZT a lot too. The Jags are nice but they should have put the logo on the back.

That Jaguar chrono is the only co-branded watch I'd ever wear. Love it. Probably wouldn't care for it if I didn't have a Jag, but I've never had an automotive related watch appeal to me.
