EVERY BREMONT WATCH IS MECHANICAL AND HAND BUILT IN THE UK

Great Britain has a wonderful history when it comes to watch making and has probably been the home to more advances in horology than any other nation. Bremont is determined to play a pivotal role in the reinvigoration of this industry on British shores and as a result, Bremont manufactures parts at its Parts Manufacturing Facility and every Bremont is hand-build and tested before leaving the Henley-on-Thames workshop.

WE OFFER 3 A YEAR WARRANTY ON EVERY BREMONT TIMEPIECE

Bremont focuses purely on beautifully made mechanical movements and every watch in our core collection has passed each of the rigorous precision tests necessary for the ISO 3159 chronometer designation. Every movement is finished to the highest levels of craftsmanship and all are guaranteed to within -4 and +6 seconds per day.

DESCRIPTION

cheveron down

To complement the 41mm men’s Hawking model, Bremont is also introducing a limited run of women’s watches as part of the collection. The Bremont Hawking Quantum is limited to 88 pieces and is available in stainless steel with a matte polished bracelet. Unlike the men’s edition, it features a dial entirely made from meteorite and is beautifully paired with polished nickel hands. Turning the watch over reveals its open case back through which an exquisite and intricately hand-finished ‘black-hole’ automatic rotor can be seen. 

Designed to Bremont’s exacting specifications, the rotor is inspired by the swirling of a black hole, a nod to the black hole theory so prevalent in Hawking’s scientific theories; it also incorporates a veneer of the oak from Hawking’s desk. The case measures 34mm in diameter with diamonds inset into the bezel as well as the index markers on the dial. This is the first time Bremont has ever used diamonds within any of its collections. The mechanical movement used is the beautifully decorated, BE-92AV chronometer rated calibre with a 38-hour power reserve.

ENGINEERED IN BRITAIN

Bremont is determined to reinvigorate the engineering of timepieces on these shores and as such, each limited edition timepiece is hand-built by skilled watchmakers at its workshop in Henley-on-Thames, UK.

WHAT'S IN THE BOX

cheveron down

The Bremont Hawking Quantum Limited Edition comes in a beautiful bridle leather roll. The box also includes technical notes and warranty documentation.

My father’s work was primarily theoretical. Nevertheless, he was a person who placed great value on precision craftsmanship and the interplay of design and technology. This antique desk was a most treasured possession, representing both his grandmother’s pioneering commitment to education, and a portal back to happy childhood memories. The Hawking family are delighted that its legacy may live on further now in the Hawking Bremont timepieces.

- Tim Hawking

Limited to 88 pieces, the elegant timepiece will be available in stainless steel with a matte polished bracelet.

2020 marks Bremont’s 10th iconic limited edition, honouring and preserving a piece of history and heritage within one of its mechanical timepieces. This year the brand is very proud to have worked closely with the Hawking family to create something completely unique and very special to commemorate the life of the remarkable Professor Stephen Hawking. It is the first time that Bremont is releasing a ladies’ watch as part of one of these collections.

Bremont Co-Founder Giles English adds, “The Hawking Collection is a slight divergence from some of the historic limited editions we’ve become known for at Bremont. Other than celebrating a true British legend, the story has added personal significance for myself and Nick as our father knew of Stephen Hawking having been to St Albans School together, a couple of years apart, and following the same path to Cambridge University. As with each of Bremont’s historic limited editions there is also a philanthropic dimension. It’s been a real honour working closely with the Hawking family on this project who founded the ‘Stephen Hawking Foundation’ which facilitates cosmological research as well as support for those who live with Motor Neurone Disease; part of the proceeds from these watches will be going directly to the charity.”
