With the limited edition Victory watch, Bremont has not only created an horological masterpiece that illustrates the passion and precision you’d expect from the British-born brand, it’s also built a detail into its construction that links with its naval provenance.
Inlaid within the case back is original oak timber from the HMS Victory – Lord Nelson’s flagship at the battle of Trafalgar in 1805 and the oldest naval ship still in commission. Hand-engraved copper from the battleship has also been worked into the inner barrel construction with exquisite detail.
With it’s elegant sapphire crystal face, sweep chronograph seconds and balancing retrograde seconds and date hands, the watch has a crisp, clean construction that conveys the high-level expertise that’s gone into its execution. The Trip Tick case comes in a choice of hardened stainless steel or 18-carat rose gold. Water resistant to 100m and with an Incabloc shock absorber and 46-hour power reserve, the brand remains true to its original principles of durability, legibility and precision. As limited edition watches go, this heritage piece is like no other.
