By  |  0 Comments

Please join Bremont’s Director of North America, Michael Pearson and Sales Manager, Neil Head at Oster Jewelers to see Bremont’s brand new America’s Cup and Jaguar Collections. Noon to 5pm on Thursday, July 30th with a special cocktail hour starting at 6pm.

As the first official British timing partner to the America’s Cup since 1851, Bremont has embarked on a very exciting project to produce a special edition series of timepieces to celebrate its involvement.

Renowned as the oldest trophy in international sport the America’s Cup first took place in 1851 on the waters off England’s south coast. Today this exciting and compelling event remains firmly at the forefront of the international sporting calendar, with cutting edge catamarans crewed by world-class sailors fighting to win the historic trophy.
The global America’s Cup World Series begins in July 2015 in Portsmouth, UK, followed by the America’s Cup Qualifiers and Play-Offs leading up to the dramatic 2017 final in Bermuda.

The Watches

AC I

The Bremont AC I was inspired by the simple lines of the J-Class yacht with its classic and understated design; it incorporates sea blue steel hands and a fine ivory white opaline dial embossed with outlines of the Cup to give subtle pattern and depth to the face of the watch. Taking its design reference from the SOLO range, this is the first time Bremont has introduced a polished steel version. The AC I is chronometer rated with a top execution automatic movement, an obvious choice for anyone interested in the allure of mechanical watches. The movement and robust anti-shock movement mount can be viewed through the sapphire crystal exhibition case back. The hand polished case is water resistant to 100m and comes on a blue Temple Island rubber strap.

AC II

In keeping with the style of the AC I, the AC II is a bi-compact chronograph made from rose gold inspired by the iconic polished ALT1-C. The beautifully shaped blue steel hands set against the fine ivory white opaline dial once again capture the timeless elegance of the J-Class yachts; the AC II is an archetypal watch that resonates well with the history of the America’s Cup. Bremont has incorporated the subtle motif of the Auld Mug outline on the two sub-dials offering a wonderfully refined pattern to the face of the watch. Integrating an impeccably modified, chronometerrated, Valjoux 7750-SO BI AC movement that can be seen through the exhibition case back, the AC II exemplifies fine watchmaking at its best.

Oracle I

The Bremont Oracle I is a purpose built timepiece that is constructed to be used on the water, or in the water, as a reliable piece of equipment for any seafarer. The design has very much evolved from the Supermarine range that is used by divers and military around the world demonstrating its durability and robustness. Incorporating the ORACLE TEAM USA branding on the new off white dial together with applied index numbering has produced a modern yet classical sailing watch. The red tipped minute hand and beautifully cast case back are also clear indications that this is a team associated watch. The watch is designed with a sapphire crystal uni-directional rotating bezel to give a clean and distinguished look.
The Oracle I is built using a highly technical 500m water resistant case, incorporating the Bremont anti-shock movement mount and anti-magnetic Faraday cage which encases the beautifully finished, chronometer tested, BE-36AE movement. Each case incorporates an automatic helium valve.

Oracle II

The second watch in the ORACLE TEAM USA Series is designed on the same principles as the Oracle I, using similar case technology but with a second time zone enabling GMT functionality. The striking fine varnished matt black dial with applied index markers is finished off with ‘America’s Cup’ written above the ‘6’, and the beautifully engineered case back has the ORACLE TEAM USA branding etched into it. The Oracle II is built using a highly technical 500m water resistant case, incorporating the Bremont anti-shock movement mount and anti-magnetic Faraday cage which encases the beautifully finished, chronometer tested, modified caliber 13 ¼” BE-92-2AE movement. Each case incorporates an automatic helium valve.
