    When you’re a fan of something, you downplay it unless you’re 100% sure about something. I am a huge bremont fan, and i agree that false statements add fuel to the fire. Everyone should get in the habit of checking their facts.

    On another bremont note, i would like to offer that the idea of criticism for “fake heritage” is just another form of snobbery and exclusion. Bremont cannot be in the club because they didn’t supply watches to the german airforce in ww2? That’s perfectly ok with me. “Heritage” is a surrogate for money and exclusivity, things i am happier not to flaunt.

    Good point, every company has to start somewhere and when one makes a mistake - one needs to correct it, apologize and move the hell on.

    Then, don't do it again :)

    Because marketing works and (the perception of) prestige is (IMO, overly) valued.

    Figured I'd add to the thread. Just got a Bremont U-2/51 DLC and I'm absolutely loving it. I have a couple of different watches that I suppose would be considered heritage watches, but that certainly didn't dissuade me from picking up a Bremont. Bottom line is that U-2 has features that no other company has and the look and feel of the watch is just plain awesome. I don't see myself ever flipping this one.

    Does anyone remember Kobold watches? Michael Kobold and his watches were a flash in the pan! Kobold watches started out sub 1k and moved quickly to 5-10k! Way over priced for what you got! Mediocre watch parts put together with a cool name and adventure selling point and presto, selling watches at an insane price point. Where is Kobold today? See my point!
    Bremont, on the other hand, is building on a rich tradition of British watch making prior to WWII. I can count on one hand the British owned watch companies and Bremont is at the top of the list. They produce high quality watches for real people in real jobs! My Kobold watch broke on day 2 of wearing it! No other watch I have ever owned at the $1000 - $10,000 price point has ever crapped out on day two. Bad luck, maybe. But I doubt it. I have my first Bremont being delivered tomorrow. I will post an honest and fair assessment of this watch. There are lovers and haters of many brands, I am neither. I love watches and form my opinion only after owning and living with the watch everyday on my wrist.
    Keep you posted on my Bremont ALT1-Z Zulu. More to come!

    Amen brother! However, I believe Bremont uses 9 layers of anti-reflective coating, not 7 as you stated.

    I think the word you missed was building.... as in there has been a rich British watch industry in the past that all but ceased. Bremont has been at the forefront at revitalising a bygone era of manufacturing watches in the UK.
