    New Bremont Released Based On DH-88 Comet!


    New Bremont Released Based On DH-88 Comet!

    The new Bremont limited edition is called the DH-88, inspired by the DH-88 Comet that won the MacRobertson Air Race between England and Australia. It'll be available in steel and rose gold:











    Both are limited editions. There will be 282 steel made and 82 rose gold made. Both will have the BE-54AE chronometer movement and both are 43mm.

    Perhaps the most interesting element is the use of spruce plywood from the original 1934 Havilland Comet "Grosvenor House":



    We'll have more photos and details later, but here are some other photos from Bremont's great event:







    Details and photographs to come very soon!

    Hi, my name is Bremont, I only make 43mm cases. My products are overpriced and unimaginative. Buy a Bremont if you want a shiny ETA POS.

    While I don't mirror bbuckbbuck's sentiments, the hacking up of another historic airplane - even small pieces - seems in poor taste to me and a bit of needless marketing sensationalism.
    Let's hope they don't decide to produce a Jesus themed watch and include pieces of the Shroud of Turin in the rotor.

    I was wondering the same thing! Even unmodified ETA movements are reliable and robust. The ETA movements in my Watches are reliable and accurate, and I have had no issues with them.

    The watches are POS, not the movement. I was just highlighting that they're POS watches with ETA movements. Bremont is worse than IWC at this point, sans the heritage. Charging outrageous near-Rolex prices for watches that are only marginally better than Chris Ward stuff. At least IWC has the heritage. Bremont acts like they have endless heritage because, I guess, their dad used to fly a plane?
