    The Bremont Norton V4 Chronograph Has Arrived!

    Bremont is probably best known for its aviation-themed watches, but one of its most endearing (and hard-to-find) limited editions to date resulted from the partnership with British motorcycle maker Norton in 2009 – one year before Topper became a Bremont dealer.




    At the Bremont Townhouse prior to Baselworld this spring, Bremont unveiled the successor to that 2009 partnership, in the form of a chronograph inspired by Norton’s newest superbike: the V4 RR, which was specifically built to race the Isle of Man TT race in June. As before, Bremont produced a series of just 200 pieces inspired by Norton livery, which feature some neat details that gearheads and watch fans alike should appreciate.


    The 43mm case Norton V4 sports a bi-compax / twin register chronograph in an ornate “panda” style color scheme.

    The new Bremont Norton V4 Chronograph shares design language with the first Norton edition from 2009 (then modeled after the Norton Commando 961 bike) – it’s a bi-compax / twin register chronograph housed in Bremont’s signature Trip-Tick case, water resistant to 100 meters, and carrying the same typeface and gold signatures used by Norton. Inside beats the Valjoux-based BE-50AE automatic chronometer movement. In most respects this calibre is identical to the movement used in the popular ALT1-C, characterized by its Glucydur balance, Anachron balance spring, Nivaflex 1 mainspring, and a 42-hour reserve.


    Measuring 16.5mm thick, the Norton V4 sports a coated and polished stainless steel Bremont Trip-Tick® case with a scratch resistant DLC treated case barrel


    The dial presentation is a handsome blend of traditional Norton and Bremont design languages

    What sets the movement apart is the custom rotor, whose bright red, five-spoke design is modeled after the rear wheel of the V4. It’s a dynamic, and extremely cool detail, and one that you don’t have to be a V4 owner or a MotoGP fan to appreciate.


    The Norton V4's most distinctive feature: the 5-spoke rotor inspired by the motorcycle's rear wheel

    The stitched 'rally-style' leather strap


    While the obvious differentiator between the 2009 and 2017 Nortons is the color (the new one is white) it features a series of subtle changes that make it sportier than its predecessor. The new Norton features subdials with a carbon fiber overlay – a detail inspired by the carbon fiber bodywork of the V4 motorcycle. The 2017 Norton also features a tachymeter scale in the chapter ring, and the watch is finished with a stitched ‘rally-style’ leather strap that neatly completes the racing theme. As mentioned, the original Bremont Norton limited edition remains one of the brand’s most sought after pieces, and we expect this iteration to follow suit. If you’d like to reserve the Norton V4 Chronograph, please call 888-730-2221 or email [email protected]


    The Norton V4 comes delivered in the familiar Bremont b-fold leather pouch with warranty booklet and strap changing tool

    And for those patiently waiting for the rest of Bremont’s 2017 novelties to arrive, you won’t be waiting much longer – we’ve already received our first shipment of the AIRCO pilot watches, with the new Supermarine Type 300 range slated to arrive shortly. More on those soon!

    Man, that rotor is something else. Possibly my favorite LE to date (outside of my Terra Nova, that is...).

    Pretty cool watch. And I love the new Donington Park built Nortons.

    As critical as I can be of watches, that's a beautiful timepiece.

    Saw the Bremont Norton bike in the background in a piece on BBC News yesterday. They were interviewing the CEO of Norton. Cool bike brand and glad to see it racing again. Wish them every success.
