    On the forums, Bremont can get slagged for not being the very best value, and some folks roll their eyes at its backstory (me, a few months ago), but they are terrific watches, handsome and well made and extremely wearable. I bought a Solo/43 and liked it so much I bought an S300. The wearability -- the build quality and legibility and comfort and proportions -- is what I emphasize about my Bremonts, a quality that is too often ignored when discussing watches.

    Consistently underrated in my opinion but I agree with you. The quality of their watches rivals that of Omega and IWC and even Zenith. Won't be my last purchase from them

    Congrats. I tried on the Boeing at the boutique in NYC but it was too big for me. But it is a beaut!

    Agree with your assessment though. They are unique in design and IMO very underrated by WIS. Case design is just so cool.

    Re: Just doubled my Bremont collection!

    I'm trying to find a watch to purchase.fkr my 21st, dead set on a seamaster but the bremont solo and s300 has got me all confused!

    They are stunning on the wrist, fit finish and knowing it's hardened steel just elevates it as an everyday watch.

    I honestly would buy an s500 > submariner if I had the cash and a slightly beefier wrist!

    That's a beauty. Love the bezel, and the crown on that one. Congratulations!

    Cheers,

    Well said. And I certainly agree. After reading so many negative comments, I finally decided to find out for myself. Fortunately, we have a local AD who fairly recently started to carry the brand. The first time I really got a look at them was yesterday, and today I have a new S301. Craftstmanship is excellent and all the other things you state. I own an number of different brands and certainly find, at least so far, that the Bremont makes no compromises.

    The value is certainly there.

    Cheers,
    Carl
