Bremont Wright Flyer Chronometer
Bremont Wright Flyer Chronometer. WHAT MAKES THE ULTIMATE AVIATION-INSPIRED WATCH? Bremont has pondered the question for years. Mechanically, it would have to be outstanding. Just as importantly, as with previous Bremont Limited Editions, it would have to incorporate a remarkable piece of history. In historical terms, what could be more remarkable than an original part of the first ever powered aircraft? The 1903 Wright Flyer was built and designed by the Wright Brothers themselves in Dayton, Ohio, USA. It’s the invention and aircraft that changed the way we live today and it has now inspired our latest, and perhaps most unique, limited edition timepiece. The Wright Flyer timepieces feature some of the original fabric used on the 1903 Wright Flyer aircraft. Just as significantly, they showcase Bremont’s first ever proprietary movement, the BWC/01, part-developed and designed in Britain with our Swiss partners.
Movement is a Bremont BWC/01 33.4mm Automatic with 25 jewels, Glucydur balance, Nivarox CT balance spring and Nivaflex 1 mainspring. Highly efficient double reverser bi-directional winding mechanism to achieve 28,800bph and 50+ hour power reserve. The BWC/01 is elegant and beautifully finished with many of its constituent parts being crafted at Bremont’s workshops in Henley-on-Thames. Each Bremont Wright Flyer Limited Edition rotor features some of the original muslin material used to cover the 1903 Wright Flyer aircraft. The muslin is layered between the period decorated rotor plate and a sapphire crystal window.
Functions include a central hour and minute hand with a running seconds hand at 9 o’clock. 43mm polished stainless steel case featuring Bremont’s Trip-Tick® case construction with integrated decoration ring on a black alligator leather strap.
