The Limited Edition Longitude
A NEW ERA FOR BRITISH WATCHMAKING
As reflected by its name, the Bremont Longitude pays tribute to Great Britain’s role in clock and watchmaking, and contribution to time, astronomy and navigation. In 1800Just over a century ago, close to half of the world’s clocks and pocket watches were made in this country, as was so much of the horological design and innovation. It has always been Bremont’s ambition to bring the art of industrial high-end watchmaking back to British shores. The classic yet contemporary design of the Limited Edition Bremont Longitude marks a significant milestone in this journey.

A HISTORY OF WATCHMAKING
Great Britain was at the heart of watch and clock making for 150 years. With the super accurate optical atomic clocks developed at the National Physical Laboratory, Great Britain remains at the forefront of time. The Bremont Longitude celebrates the great horological achievements of this nation both past and present. This watch tells the story of time itself.

THE ENG300 MOVEMENT SERIES
A new manufacturing line for machining base components and T0 assembly will all be happening in the new Bremont Manufacturing & Technology Centre “The Wing” based in Henley-on-Thames, UK. Bremont has made considerable investment into new machinery, staff and training and the firm’s in-house technical team has re-engineered 80% of the base calibre, including making a number of design improvements, in order to build a proprietary movement to the brand’s unique specification.
