Inspired by the original Bremont AC1, and taking visual cues from famed J-Class yachts of the 1930s, this new watch features sea blue steel hands and a fine ivory white opaline dial embossed with outlines of the America’s Cup trophy. With ‘London’ marked on the dial, the watch will be made in a limited edition of 535 pieces. The hand-polished case is water resistant to 50 meters. Inside is an automatic chronometer-rated automatic movement (visible through the exhibition caseback) with a 40-hour power reserve.
“The AC I has proven to be an incredibly popular timepiece since we launched it last year and has led to lots of enquiries by women who were after a ladies version so this seemed like a natural extension to the line,” explained Bremont co-founder Giles English. “It is of course also very well timed with Bremont having just launched our first women’s watches.”
Located in Henley on Thames, England, Bremont often draws inspiration from aviation past. Bremont was founded in 2002 by brothers Nick and Giles English. Since then, their timepieces have been featured in a number of films, television shows and more.
