    Bremont pricing

    Bremont is certainly a fine watch but with the economic changes in the industry with the new smart watches does it look like the price may come down some in the near future?

    Not as long as they continue growing sales AND investing in the UK manufacturing part of the business. I'd say their current direction leads me to believe prices will only go up.

    Exactly this. Like every other luxury watch company, retail prices will only continue to rise. This is especially true for a company like Bremont, which is gaining in popularity and increased sales.

    Only if the dollar continues to grow against other currency. Case in point was Patek lowing prices 7% to adjust. They could most likely just raise prices in other places which is what most did last year. I echo the others in that sales are good, LE watches are sell outs quickly and they are adding models and volume sufficient to drive demand. More than likely you will pay more in the future.

    I think it is a bit of a shame what they are asking especially for the MB1. My squadron was lucky, we only lost one jet in 5 years. I checked with one of the guys who took a Martin Baker thrill ride and he would love to get a MB1. Unfortunately even as a retired colonel, he thinks the Bremont is for "rich people." In my opinion, Bremont should give those MB1s a $1000 price.

    If you have seen their special aircraft editions--Wild Weasels is one, they are outstanding but none of the hundreds of crew dogs I know would think about a $6000 wristwatch.

    Yes, Bremont sells watches. Probably to more chair force than Air Force guys.

    (come and get me, I'm checking 6)

    I'd prefer free!

    In my experience Bremont bends over backwards to build a timepiece that servicemen and women are proud to wear. Much more so than a massive company like Breitling that is impersonal and difficult to work with. And then you have your Bell & Ross types that massively market military ties without any real military connections or support.

    Back on topic, apparently there's an EP-120 listed on another forum for £25,000!

    Simply ridiculous. Let's just see how long it'll take to sell.

    Vipereaper--actually I know the guys at Bell&Ross and have a lot of respect for their designs. After all, the BR01 was inspired by the cockpit clocks and I wanted one day one.

    Bell&Ross tied in early with the French Bomb Squad and later with the French Naval Air Arm. They have actual military ties in Europe. A Rafale special edition is in their catalog. They would love to have ties to the US military but in the current environment it is against our regulations to have official endorsements and even to give the appearance of endorsement is career poison.

    I like what Bremont offers in their "Special Project Military" designs and love the cool second hand on the MB. I suppose Bremonts are distinctive but love it or hate it, the Bell&Ross Instrument was groundbreaking with its 46mm square design. That was 10+years ago.
    I wish Bell&Ross would do a Phantom logo watch.

    A phantom logo watch would be great!

    I thought they might have some European aviation ties but haven't seen any on the US side, maybe they weren't the best example. They aren't able to work with any units on this side of the pond? The last time I saw a Bremont rep was at an "industry" night at Nellis AFB a few months back. Pretty sure if B&R wanted to make watches for the US military they could...
