The Kingsman Special Edition has a BE-54AE movement. As dial arrangement would suggest, this caliber is Bremont’s version of the ETA Valjoux 7750. It is a 13 1/4-lignes automatic movement, beating at 28,800 vph. It has a Glucydur balance, an Anachron balance spring, a Nivaflex 1 mainspring, and 25 jewels. Its power reserve is 42 hours. The skeletonized rotor is decorated by Bremont and features the brand’s name. The watch has been COSC-certified as a chronometer.
The dial has hours, minutes and chronograph seconds mounted at center, along with an arrow-tipped 24-hour UTC hand. This hand points to the appropriate hour once the city has been selected. The running seconds display is at 9 o’clock; the chronograph minutes subdial is at 12 o’clock and the chronograph minutes subdial at 6. A date window is at 3 o’clock.
The watches use Bremont’s three-part “Trip-Tick” case construction, involving a case middle or barrel of a distinct design (often in another alloy or treatment). The case is 43 mm in diameter with a lug width of 22 mm. Its height is 16 mm. The domed sapphire crystal is scratch-resistant and has nonreflective coating. The caseback bears a sapphire crystal window. The watch is water resistant to 100 meters and comes on a leather strap with a pin buckle.
Kingsman: The Secret Service was written and directed by Matthew Vaughn, based on a comic book by Mark Millar. The film stars Colin Firth, Samuel L. Jackson, Michael Caine and Mark Strong, among others. It is in theaters in the U.S. on February 13.
Bremont has produced three versions of the Kingsman Special Edition in steel, DLC-coated steel and rose gold. The rose-gold version has a DLC-coated middle section. The dial is made of white metal, with hands coated in Super-LumiNova. The caseback is also in rose gold, and it comes on an alligator strap. It costs $20,285.
The DLC-treated Kingsman costs $6,650. Its rotor, caseback and screws are also DLC coated. It comes on a black calfskin strap and has a black metal dial.
