Mixing the qualities of Military and Aviation to create this iconic piece, Bremont initially designed the U2 exclusively for the elite Spy Plane Squadron based at Beale, California. Here the Squadron tested the watch to endure their tough reconnaissance missions that took them to 80,000 feet and regularly lasted over 12 hours.
Featuring many of the fascinating aspects of the Bremont Martin Baker watch such as the Anti-shock rubberised movement mount, the U2 holds the same testing requirements which are designed to withstand the MB ejection seat programme however with further requirements unique to the Reconnaissance wing at Beale.
The 43mm case created with Trip-Tick 3-piece case construction becomes the heart of this watch, with the case lugs exclusive to this watch designed as though they melt into the strap for an incredibly clean look that is the opposite of the hardwearing durability this case holds.
The stunning metallic blue dial is the perfect colour to accompany the super-Luminova hands and hour markers which have been coated at least 15 – 20 times, ensuring optimum visibility of this watch even in the darkest of lightings; this is something which we think is essential for all budding aviator fans.
From the back of the watch, the Modified calibre 11 ½''' BE-36AE automatic chronometer with 38-hour power reserve can be viewed in full motion, the side profile of this piece is also special with a blue case being presented which symbols the unique aspects of the U2.
Enclosing the face is an anti-reflective sapphire crystal glass cover; ensuring the watch can be viewed in all climates and altitudes. Adjustable to any wrist size, a blue leather strap completes this timeless piece which also boasts an additional temple island rubber strap, a three-year international warranty and official Bremont packaging upon purchase.
