The Executive Selection: Bremont ALT1-C/PB
When Bremont founders Nick and Giles English were flying across France in a 1930s biplane during dire weather, they landed on a field and were then helped by the farmer of that plot. They promised him that his hospitality would be remembered. His name? Antoine Bremont. As a brand that certainly remembers their roots, Bremont has now introduced the ALT1-C/PB timepiece, reminiscent of its original ALT1-C model, the first watch the brand ever designed.
The chronometer’s jet black stainless steel case and the golden-hued numerals give it just enough oomph- but don’t dismiss this timepiece as just a good-looking wristwear, it’s got a lot under its hood too! Built from the Valjoux 7750 watch movement, it was modified to the Calibre 13 ¼ BE=50AE running at a rate of 28,800 bph.
The ALT1-C/PB is presented in a polished 43mm case encapsulated by Bremont’s signature coating to ensure high-impact fatigue resistance, which, as final frontier enthusiasts would know, is a technique used in the aerospace sector. Sport this fine machine both on and off the clock, with no worries about wear and tear.
