    Bremont as investment?

    Hi all

    I have a small collection of omega watches and I really like to add one of the bremont pilots to my collection. Any recommendations on something that will holds its value? I buy second hand mostly.

    Cheers
    Ben

    I don’t own any Bremonts unfortunately but have been eyeing them for a while. From my view I wouldn’t count on them to increase in value except for perhaps an LE like the Wright flyer. But if you buy second hand it might not depreciate too much. My 2c but there are more knowledgeable people than I on this forum.

    I've owned an ALT-1C previously, and currently have an MB3. I've enjoyed them both, but with most of my other watches being sub 40mm, it always feels a bit big and unwieldy when I put the MB3 on. It should be an easy sell considering the fact that it's a signature piece from Bremont, and it's well-priced, but no bites so far. Wondering if Bremont is losing a bit of its lustre?

    As an aside, Bremont is a brand that I want to love but I'm a bit uncomfortable with their current marketing efforts. The Townhouse is a great idea, but links with actors and placements in sub-par movies smacks of a Tag Heuer approach to becoming mainstream.

    The more popular models hold value better if purchased pre-owned. They dont look "dated" as such and hence have retained their value to an extent. But overall the brand does seem to be going downhill at this point in terms of overall efforts, strategy and new models. Being a very interested Bremont customer, I am sad at the way 2018 has gone, hoping they can make a come back next year.

    No!

    Hit wrong forum, but the answer is the same.

    What’s the story behind the Venom collaboration? I walked by the NYC store the other day and was surprised to see it. I don’t think it really fits with their general vibe. Kinda strange IMO.

    A misguided attempt to stay relevant after their faltering popularity?

    I'd say so. Feels a bit premature to push this kind of marketing strategy as they're still relatively unknown and young. The brand will probably lose supporters who were originally interested by the well-thought through designs with a nice story behind them (martin baker line).
