Bremont Boeing watch line set

Bremont Watch Company confirms that the new Boeing watch range, launching at Basel 2014, will comprise two new models: the Bremont Boeing Model 1 and the Bremont Boeing Model 247. The new line is the result of extensive access to the aerospace company’s material and manufacturing technology at the Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (AMRC) in Sheffield, UK, as well as to its historical and archival materials. The watches will exclusively use Boeing aeroplane materials that have never before been incorporated in watch manufacture. 

Named after the first aircraft built by Boeing, known as the B&W, the Bremont Boeing Model 1 is a unique timepiece that reflects Boeing’s extensive experience in advanced material research. One version is manufactured from Custom 465® Stainless Steel. This double vacuum-melted, age-hardenable alloy was developed for the aerospace industry for superior strength, hardness and corrosion resistance. A second version uses Boeing aviation-grade Ti-64 titanium for the case. Both feature the unique Bremont Trip-Tick case construction with integrated crown guard. Their beautifully decorated BE-36AE movements are suspended in Boeing blue decorated steel and rubber anti-shock mounts exposed for all to see through the crystal case backs.

The Bremont Boeing Model 247 represents the debut chronograph in the collaboration, named after the first Boeing twin-engine commercial aircraft. The two ‘twin-like’ subdials tastefully reflect this inspiration. Like the Bremont Boeing Model 1, two versions are available: the first is built from exceptionally tough Custom 465® Stainless Steel, while the second has been manufactured from Boeing aviation-grade titanium. The hardened case incorporates screw down crowns and chrono pushers, together with an exhibition sapphire crystal case back. 

All Bremont Boeing cases will be made in-house in the UK. The hardness of the Custom 465® Stainless Steel makes it particularly demanding to machine precision parts. In conjunction with the Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre, Bremont has developed new machining techniques to meet the challenge. 

About Boeing Boeing is the world’s leading aerospace company and the largest combined manufacturer of commercial jetliners and military aircraft combined. With a long tradition of aerospace leadership and innovation, Boeing will celebrate its 100th anniversary in 2016. 

About AMRC The University of Sheffield AMRC with Boeing identifies, researches and resolves advanced manufacturing problems. The AMRC with Boeing is dedicated to working with manufacturing businesses, from global aerospace giants to local SMEs. Businesses can work with the AMRC on a one-off project, or join as a member for long-term collaboration.

There are currently over 70 member companies which pay an annual fee to access the resources and expertise, and which help determine the Centre’s research programme – membership is open to all. Boeing is the founding partner and continues to play a key role in the Centre’s continuing development.
