    Bremont ALT-1C

    Really impressed again by the quality, I used to own the Super Marine 500. I believe this is their flagship watch right now and judging by the quality, it's well deserved.

    I was never impressed that much by these at the store (especially saran wrapped), then I saw Jay's cream dialed version which WoW'd me. I was debating getting this turned into the cream dial which Bremont offers as a service but I think I'll stick with the black dial for now.

    I don't know if it's a keeper but I'm extremely impressed by the overall quality and fine detailing. Also this is the first time I'm using my new Nikon D7000. The first two pics are from the Voigtlander 58mm F1.4 stopped down to F4 1/60 with an off camera bounce flash. I messed up the exposure so had to pump it up +2ev in LR3. The rest are with the Sigma 105mm F2.8 macro.

    Pretty cool how the propeller crown aligns, not sure if that's by accident or by design.

    I'll post a full review on my site in a few days.

    The crown on my Bremont Supermarine aligns as well. Might be by design!

    Love the Bremont line, I wouldn't mind having a MB2.

    very attractive. I am stuck between bremont and damasko for my next purchase- both have points in durability and legibility, two of my main considerations. beautiful watch and congrats :D

    There appears to be a MB2 on sale right now in the Classifieds.

    And there was a guy literally giving away (well 3000$ iirc) his almost new Supermarine on Timezone.

    I really like Bremonts, though they're more than I'm willing to spend these days.

    Sorry, I only speak English, and WUS. Some of that looks like words I know...
