Order now for end of March delivery.

The ALT1-C Griffon remains true to each of the technical principles behind any revered automatic timepiece. Integrating an impeccably modified, chronometer-rated Valjoux 7750-SO BI AC movement, the ALT1-C Griffon brings together art of watch making with the very best of technical innovation, precision and durability. This model in particular pays tribute to the Spitfire that brand Co-Founders Nick and Giles English’s father operated and is now owned by Rolls-Royce. The PR Mk XIX was the last of the specialised photo reconnaissance variants of the Spitfire, one of the few with a Griffon engine and arguably the finest of them all.

“The Mk XIX Spitfire is an iconic aircraft which holds personal significance to myself and Nick. The Griffon will certainly feel very much at home in this cockpit or any other for that matter.”


- Giles English, Bremont Co-Founder

‘MILITARY INSTRUMENT’ DESIGN

Based on the ALT1-C, the first Bremont timepiece that the brothers ever designed, the new ALT1-C Griffon retains the core DNA from the original ALT1-C Cream, sporting an updated dial and hands. The detail on this new model also harks back to some early chronometer designs with more of a ‘military instrument’ feel to it. 

AN ICONIC PIECE OF BREMONT HISTORY

Paying tribute to the Spitfire that brand CoFounders Nick and Giles English’s father operated, The PR Mk XIX was the last of the specialised photo reconnaissance variants of the Spitfire, one of the few with a Griffon engine and arguably the finest of them all. 

BEAUTIFULLY FINISHED MECHANICAL MOVEMENT

A fusion of sublime craftsmanship with the very best of technical innovation, the beautifully finished mechanical movement can be seen through the exhibition case back. 

PRECISION AND DURABILITY

Guaranteed to within -4 and +6 seconds per day, exceeding the requirements for the Chronometer certification, Bremont watches are all manufactured to the highest levels of precision. In addition, every Bremont is backed by a 3 year warranty. 

TRIP TICK® CASE

The iconic Trip-Tick® 3-piece case design provides durability and distinctive aesthetics from a scratch resistant, DLC treated barrel.
