    What do you think of the new 1918

    Whats the general opinion on the new line of 1918 watches?

    I think they are beautiful but struggle with pricing. The cheapest model in SS is GBP 9,000, gold are GBP 17,000. While the movement is nicely decorated and has some cool elements (pieces from actual WWII planes) its still a 7750. I know the in-house vs ETA is a separate discussion, but I would expect a bit more at that price range. Having said that some brands sell quartz watches for $5000+.

    I typically love Bremonts but there is just too much going on in a small space with that one. Makes the Storm Chaser all that much more appealing to me. Jmho.

    Itís interesting but does seem like they are using someone elseís history for their own benefit with the 1918 on the dial and plain 100 years on the rotor, I donít buy that they didnít think of it at all when designing this watch as it all seems intentionally misleading

    Way too busy, and is that a broad arrow on the dial? Can they do that??

    Thought bremont may have been turning a corner with the new divers. Then they come out with a $10k+ 7750 that's over 17mm thick. Lol bremont... Lol
