To celebrate the 50th anniversary of an aircraft both brilliant and beautiful, Bremont has partnered with British Airways to launch its eighth historical limited edition timepiece, the Bremont Supersonic, incorporating parts of one of the most famous and iconic planes in history – Concorde.
Ahead of her time in more ways than one, Concorde flew faster than a rifle bullet and halved the time of transatlantic crossings. Over 2.5 million British Airways passengers experienced flying eleven miles high at twice the speed of sound. This evocative civilian airliner completed more supersonic flying hours than the entire world’s air forces combined.
Concorde, which stopped flying in 2003, flew at twice the speed of sound, faster than a rifle bullet, and halved the time of transatlantic crossings.
The Bremont Supersonic contains the manufacturer’s first ever manual wind movement which has an 8-day power reserve with its countdown indicator on the dial at 12 o’clock.
The blue hands of the Supersonic echo British Airways blue on Concorde’s famous livery and a subtle motif of the plane’s iconic silhouette can be seen on the second-hand sub dial.
The watch is offered in either stainless steel, white gold or rose gold. It has a 43mm case housing a modified calibre BE-11M hand wound movement. Prices start at $12,495 for the stainless steel model while the white gold version costs $23,995 and the rose gold is $22,495.
