    Re: BREMONT

    Others might disagree with me, but if there's an "iconic" Bremont, it's probably the MBII. It's the civilian version of the ultra-tough MBI, which is available for purchase only to those who've ejected from a Martin-Baker ejection seat.

    I would also say if you're going to own only one Bremont, get a stainless steel model (which is the majority of them). Reason being, one of Bremont's big selling points is their hardened steel, which is some of the toughest steel to be had anywhere, at a rating of ~2000 Vickers. (By comparison, Rolex's touted 904L steel rates at ~500 Vickers, and Sinn's tegmented steel rates at ~1200 Vickers.)

    My favorite, after owning many is the Supermarine S500, but would have to agree that the MBII is the most iconic.

    I would have said MB series in the past, and if the pilot style is your thing or you want a different case color this is the choice. However after owning and sampling several Bremonts the Super Marine 500 would be my choice. It fits my day to day activities best. The Americans Cup series also has a version of this watch.

    Re: BREMONT

    My personal favorite is the Victory, but even if you could get one, I wouldn't recommend that to start with. The next best thing, and my second most favorite, is the much more attainable ALT1-C/PW, which is one of Bremont's more dressier options. Granted, the PW isn't one of the standard Bremont "starter" watches, but aside from the actual aesthetic of the watch, what makes this one even more attractive to me is that the polished case is also hardened just like Bremont's more standard offerings thereby making the watch very scratch resistant, which according to Bremont, was not an easy feat to accomplish with a polished case. It's not a gimmick either since after over a year and a half of ownership, I have yet to see a single mark on the case or bezel. I wish that hardened steel was the standard fare on all watches with a polished case—if for nothing else, just to avoid those pesky hairlines that are pretty much unavoidable otherwise.

    If a white dial isn't your thing, there is also the ALT1-C/PB, which has also has the very same hardened and polished case, but with a black dial, slightly lumed hands, and applied/polished Arabic numerals. Also a stunner.

    Whatever you decide, make sure to post back with your new Bremont.

    The MB's are definitely Bremonts most popular line. What would you like out of your Bremont?

    I agree. MBII is the 'go to' watch for Bremont. Built like a tank too. With that said, I do like the Boeing's.
