This is a numbered limited edition of just 300 pieces available.
Introducing the latest Limited Edition from the Bremont Watch Company, taking inspiration from their Aviation heritage, the ‘BREMONT H-4 HERCULES’ is a tribute to the life and legacy of the famed ‘Spruce Goose’ and its creator, Howard Hughes. Three limited edition models have been produced in steel, rose gold and platinum and all three are sure to be a sell-out.
A salute to the original flying boat of the 1940’s the H-4 Hercules was a pioneering aircraft that defied the odds, with the famous one minute of flight on 2nd November 1947. With this commemorative watch, you can too own a piece of the iconic plane, with each watch containing original birch wood from the fuselage of this iconic silver flying boat.
The original birch wood is incorporated into this handsome, luxury watch via the rotor of the movement, that is fashioned into a propeller design. The 25 jewel Bremont BWC/02 movement is the latest off shoot from Bremont of their BWC/01 calibre, built in partnership with movement house, La Joux Perret. A 50+ hour power reserve with a GMT secondary time zone function means this watch is a triumph in British watch making.
We love the handsome 1940’s vibe this watch exudes, with this model being the steel version crafted in Bremont Trip-Tick® case construction that measures 43mm wide. Key touches to the vintage vibe are the winding crown and beige pallet tone used on the dial. Even the font of the numerals has an aura of the old-school. The splash of vibrant colour is the bold choice of red used on the GMT hand.
Supplied with this timepiece is both a vintage leather strap and a grey NATO strap for you to swap and change for any wearing occasion. As with any high-end watch you can expect a screw-down crown to enhance the 100m water resistance and anti-reflective sapphire crystal glass. Bremont are also well known for their beautiful presentation of each piece and this watch continues this trend with special packaging, which features original aileron fabric from the H-4.
