One of Bremonts’ most sought after pieces for 2018 the U-2/51-Jet has found fame for its striking good looks and a celebrity’s influence. The watch also known as the Venom watch; worn by Tom Hardy in the Marvel film 'Venom', is just one talking point of this piece.
The U-2 range takes inspiration from the RAF’s Hawk T1 Jet, with this particular watch becoming a special project commissioned by the RAF 100 Squadron members to celebrate their centenary. The stealthy black appearance is designed to reflect the 100 squadron which was the first squadron formed for night bombing in 1917.
Stealthy looks have been accentuated by the black on black combination with a stainless-steel Trip-Tick case®, constructed with a Jet black barrel thanks to the Diamond-Like-Coating; a finish with the toughness of a diamond. The 43mm case is also equipped with Bremont patented inner bidirectional roto-click bezel operated by its own crown.
A black metal dial, has features that pop from the black background with the hour numbers and markers that are treated with superluminova® in the brands trademark colour; vintage 51 lume. The hands of this piece are heat treated taking the steel from its normal silver colour to a great shade of blue.
Viewed through tinted smoked black glass is the swiss automatic movement that has been chronometer tested once upgraded to Bremont’s specification which includes a 38-hour power reserve and Bremont moulded and skeletised rotor.
Equipped with a black leather strap, this watch also comes with an additional Temple Island rubber strap. Tested beyond endurance this watch is more than capable for every day wear and comes water resistance 100m and a three-year warranty.
