DESCRIPTION

Limited to 300 pieces, the Supersonic Stainless Steel has been hand assembled by our skilled watchmakers at Bremont’s workshop in Henley-on-Thames. The Supersonic contains Bremont’s first ever manual wind movement which features an 8 day power reserve and has a power reserve indicator at the 12 o’clock position. The style of the timepiece is reminiscent of a 70’s look and feel with its sunburst white dial representing Concorde’s specially developed highly reflective paint. The blue hands of the Supersonic reflect British Airways blue on Concorde’s famous livery. The Bremont Supersonic incorporates a ring of aluminium from Alpha Bravo, Heathrow’s last remaining Concorde. The silhouette of this remarkable aircraft is subtly machined into the movement’s customised base plate and G-BOAB’s attributes feature in gold around the aluminium decoration ring. The beautiful bespoke packaging, which has been engineered and made in England, is a subtle nod to the iconic shape of Concorde. This timepiece comes on a Concorde Blue Connolly leather strap with pin buckle to complement case material.

Time Flies

Concorde made the dream of supersonic travel a reality. She was a landmark in aircraft design and her incredible achievements make her a classic example of British engineering at its finest. She was cutting edge throughout her 27-year service and nothing has rivalled her since. She was more than just metal. She inspired pride and emotion. Bremont is delighted to dedicate the Supersonic to this remarkable aircraft and have incorporated original aluminium from Concorde Alpha Bravo into the watch. In addition to 50 years of Concorde, 2019 will mark the centenary of British Airways. The Bremont Supersonic is our unique tribute to these two iconic names in British aviation. Parts of the proceeds of these unique limited edition timepieces will be donated to the Air League Trust, an organisation that works to introduce young people from all backgrounds to aviation and aerospace. The brilliant cause is part of a wider network of charities supported by British Airways, known as Flying Start.
