    Why Did You Get A Bremont?

    I've been considering getting a Bremont, specifically a U-2. They look very nicely designed and finished but are at a price point where there is tons of competition. So my question is, why did you pick a Bremont over similarly priced competitors?

    Tried it and just loved it. The specs and engineering/making were all matching expectations as well. Is on my wrist just now with two dozen other watches abandoned in the closet.

    Quality. Plain and simple. For example: the crown is the manual interface between a watch and its owner. I have never felt a finer crown than on my Terra Nova.

    I prefer the lesser known brands, but I had never heard of Bremont until I saw Jimmy Fallon present an MBI to his father-in-law on the Tonight Show about a year ago. The different look of the watch really got my attention. The more I researched the brand, the more I loved it. Bremont is rugged and it is different. I ended up purchasing an S500, but I may still add the MBII at some point- orange barrel, of course.

    Thanks all for your input. They do seem to be very high quality. I went to my nearest Bremont dealer today and looked at them in their display cases. Unfortunately, this particular dealer happens to be a car dealership (weird, right?) and there was no one there to assist me. Well, there was, but they were more interested in selling cars or car parts then helping me try on a watch. No idea why Bremont would want a car dealership as an AD but oh well. I got to see them in person at least. I'll try another dealer some other time and hopefully get to try them on later.

    Oh, and the Jaguar Chronograph is beautiful. Such a nice design.

    I think the Galpin location is there to cross promote their Jaguar line, and hopes to position the brand into a sports/race watch along with their established aviation and nautical/dive ranges.

    Since you are in LA, stop by Feldmar, they are an Authorized Dealer (the first in Southern California) for Bremont.

    I figured the Jaguar line was the reason for the Galpin location but was disappointed they only had one of the Jaguar models. I expected them to have all three.

    Thanks for the info on the other dealer. I'll have to head there soon.

    I had the same initial reaction when I first heard of the brand. A friend of mine showed up one day wearing a Supermarine. I tried it on and was amazed at the quality, weight, and overall craftsmanship and decided to take the plunge. I now own that piece and the U-2 Blue. Once you see one in person, you'll have the same feeling.
