Thanks Lola, actually it was there for sometimes already ;) Can ask Danny about it ;)

British designed, Swiss made? The price is not cheap and i think i will prefer (my personally opinion la) to buy one more rolex or panerai better...  :HammerHead: sorry....

Cost as much as Rolex and PAM? I was thinking it is around RM8k like Ball and the gang.

Bremont are very solid watches. The quality of finishing is very good. Having handled it, I must say that I am impressed by what I have seen so far.

Pricing is subjective. Age of the brand is also subjective. Consider this: B&R, Sarpaneva, FP Journe, FM, Franc Villa, Richard Mille, Romain Jerome just to name a few are also very young brands by watchmaking standards but are well received. Perception of the brand is an individual thing.

As a point to note, Bremont design its watches for present aviation use, and not just leveraging on the past, as you see with many other brands. Pilots in the air force have good testimonial on Bremont design, but many watch collectors still frown on its reliance on generic movements.

I think it is worth following the Bremont development and see how it transform given it does not have the resources of a large watch group.

If I was a professional aviator or an explorer, the only hunk of time keeping metal I'd even consider strapping on my wrist while on the job would be this:
The Breitling Emergency

Documented to have saved lives (example of one):
Breitling's Emergency II Doubles Down On Rescue Technology

Seriously, IMHO in this modern day and age of GPS and digital instrumentation, (military pilots on the job) wearing a relatively inaccurate automatic mechanical watch is all about vanity.

Regarding Bremont: Nice watches but other aviator/classic style watches are ahead on my list.

Not really, I think Bremont is comparable more to IWC. Bremont has a strong military link while Graham associates with motorsport (4 and 2 wheels). Bremont is still British owned while Graham is now Swiss owned - the only common factor is the British origin of both brands.

About pilots wearing a watch for vanity reasons - yes, to a certain extent. You can't doubt the coolness factor of a real military pilot who also wears a bold and engineered watch synonymous with his job. But a watch engineered to be super tough, legible (day and night) with chronometer accuracy also appeals to them. Interestingly, it was Bremont's design of the watch for ejection seat maker, Martin Baker, to meet extreme anti-shock specifications that stirred interest from the likes of F-18 hornet squadron, US Navy Test Pilot School and the B-2 Stealth Bomber squadron.
