DESCRIPTION

Inspired by Boeing’s progressive twin-engined Model 247 airliner from the 1930s, Bremont’s unique chronograph has two sub-dials that reflect the aircraft’s radial engines. Like the Model 1 Ti-GMT timepiece, the case is manufactured from Boeing aviation-grade Ti 6-4 Titanium. The Bremont Trip-Tick® case construction incorporates a screw down crown and chrono-pushers. The Model 247 also features an exhibition sapphire crystal case back through which the automatic chronometer movement can be seen. By 1933 aircraft design had moved forward rapidly, with Boeing at the forefront of innovation. The twin-engined Boeing Model 247 was a major advance in passenger air travel. Used by both civilian and military operators, the Model 247 set the standard for basic airline design for the next decade.

Advanced Material Technology

When Boeing started searching for a watch partner, it was evident that they were wanting a lot more than simply a branded watch. The quality of Bremont's work made it clear that the two companies would make ideal collaborators. Over the last decade, for example, Bremont has manufactured limited edition timepieces in tribute to aircraft under the Boeing Company umbrella, like for example, the North American P-51. Bremont has also been working extensively with the military. Pilots serving globally from Alaska to Antarctica proudly wear Bremont watches designed and manufactured especially for their squadrons. Timepieces have been designed to celebrate flying machines like the Boeing AH-64 Apache gunship and CH-47 Chinook helicopters, the large military transport C-17 Globemaster and state of the art jet fighters like the Boeing F-15 Eagle (below), F/A-18 Hornet and Super Hornet. At any moment, a Bremont will be airborne somewhere in the world keeping precise time for its pilot owner, even in the harshest of environments.
