Bremont Bump

Post by AntonioPD » Sat Sep 05, 2015 2:09 pm

The Bremont Forum looks like it could use some activity. For those of you new to DWC and/or the brand, here's an article I wrote last spring after Basel:

Still love the brand. I need to look again for a new one after letting one go a while back.

Oops. Nope. B52 is gone.

I tend to wear the MBII less in the summer; just one of those things. :shrug:


It will, however, be on Art's strap when it goes back on the wrist.

The new ones are pretty sharp; America's Cup and Boeing editions.

Stopped by the NYC boutique yesterday for a dram of Mac 15, and while I was there I tried out these beauties:

Long live Bremont! Huzzah!

I'm pretty sure that the U-22 will be my next Bremont, but damn if that Ti Boeing 247 ain't hawt! :thumbsup:

I miss having one. Love the brand and the English brothers' ambition, cool pieces, great service, and they have a fantastic US rep in Mike Pearson.

I do love the brand but frankly right now beyond my supermarine, there's not many must have pieces for me. Did love Freds Boeing chrono though.

Really like the brand and have had my share ( MBII, Alt1C, and SM)... For some reason they just don't stick :think: :think:

Love their customer service...it's the best :thumbsup:

The 2 that Adam posted are potential if I go back....

Man, it's sure quiet in here. Hasn't totally dampened my enthusiasm to pick one up, still riding my first impressions with checking out the full Supermarine collection (including a Terra Nova, which was a surprise) at the NYC boutique a few weeks back.

Heading to the NYC Boutique tomorrow night for another exciting episode of the Bremont Adventurers Club. For any locals there are still a few spots available.

loved my brief time with the terra nova, and the u2 has had as much staying power as any watch i've rented for quite some time.

I really enjoyed my blue Supermarine... If Bremont ever does a blue Supermarine in titanium, I'm getting one.

Would also like to try a MBII and a Solo.

I really enjoyed joes blue supermarine too :)

Just really needed funding for a JLC and the supermarine seemed easier to let go and pick up down the road.

Wouldn't mind a white MBII--but I've had an MBII (orange), 2 Alt1Cs, and a Supermarine for some reason they don't stick :shrug:

hahaha so much past tense in this thread. Supermarine in blue is calling my name. Or a Terra Nova if I can get any current 'renters' to sell me theirs...
