At BaselWorld 2016, Bremont introduced four watches with a complication entirely new to the brand: a regatta timer. At the heart of these is the new BE-17AE movement, which is basically a Valjoux 7750 reworked (or ‘customized’) for Bremont by their partners of La Joux-Perret.

For now, the collection consists of two dressier ‘America’s Cup’ models with cases similar to those of the Alt1-C, and two sportier models dedicated to Oracle Team USA – whose titanium case are not unlike those of the titanium Boeing models.

The full Bremont America’s Cup collection, including the models launched in 2016, can be seen right here.


Watchbase: JLC, Bremont and other updates - 2016/02/20 by Dale Vito

It’s been a while since my last update but we have been keeping busy – our database now includes over 11.000 watches and more than 1.200 distinct calibers. So, what’s new?

Our JLC database now features most, if not all, models from the current collection – including 100 different Reverso’s. Most are uploaded including pricing information.

I’ve also been working on updating our Bremont collection, which now holds more watches and better images. I might have to tweak our set-up a bit though, as I am not sure whether the Special & Limited section in its current form is such a great idea; after all, it holds watches from several lines.

Omega has been fine tuned here and there, with a few new (or missing) models added and pricing information updated on the most important references. I created a separate page for the Museum Collection, with 1 to 10 all listed.

Our Patek Philippe database now also holds all ladies watches. Piaget is mostly complete. Oh, and I’ve started working on Girard-Perregaux.

We’re slowly gearing up towards BaselWorld 2016, so stay tuned!

Tonight Team Watchbase will be at the Bremont Kingsman event hosted by Ace Jewelers. What better motivation could we have to post a bit on the three watches created especially for the film?

Bremont is part of a group of British brands who, under the watchful eye of MR Porter, MR PORTER, director Mr Matthew Vaughn and costume designer Ms Arianne Phillips, who have collaborated on a collection of menswear items inspired by – and worn in – the film.

A total of three watches has been created for the film, all based on thecaliber BE-54AE-powered ALT-1 Worldtimer model. All of them feature special dials with the Kingsman logo. A model with rose gold case was not previously available in the ALT-1 collection.
