Bremont Adds New Models to Its Solo Collection

Bremont Solo 43mmBremont launched its Solo collection, inspired by pilots’ watches from the 1940s, in 2011. This year, the line expands with the addition of a new white-dial model, which accompanies the original black-dial version, and a smaller version with a 37-mm diameter case.

Like its predecessor, the new white-dial Solo is housed in a 43-mm three-piece steel case, whose design Bremont refers to as “Trip-Tick,” and powered by a modified ETA 2836 movement that the company has named BE-36AE. The movement has been chronometer-certified. The case undergoes a special hardening process at Bremont’s workshop in England that gives it a hardness of over 2,000 Vickers, and renders it seven times more scratch resistant than normal watch-grade steel.

The other watch, nicknamed Solo-37, is the smallest timepiece that Bremont has yet produced, and the company sees it appealing primarily to women. Like the larger models, it has a mechanical chronometer movement  and a “Trip-Tick” case, available with various finishes. The Solo-37 is available with a white dial and either a stainless steel or 18k rose-gold top bezel. The white dial is available with either applied silver or rose-gold-colored indices. There is also a black-dial version, with white indices, available. All watches in the Solo collection have domed sapphire crystals with nine layers of hardened non-reflective coating on each side and sapphire exhibition casebacks. All are water-resistant to 100 meters.
