Bremont ALT1-C New Models – ALT1-C Blue and ALT1-C White

Introduced in 2007, ALT1-C, the first Bremont watch ever designed, has become an iconic part of the Bremont line-up and has been a bestseller. Over the years the ALT1-C collection has been extended with some slightly dressier polished variants on the original design whilst the satin finish hasn’t been altered in 11 years, until now. Bringing together the art of watch making with the very best of technical innovation, precision and durability, the ALT1-C is a timeless classic.

New applied indexes replace Arabic numerals creating a more minimalist and contemporary feel to the 2018 ALT1-C/BL and ALT1-C/WH-BK models providing a contrast to the existing core range. The satin case features an enlarged exhibition case back for better visibility of the beautifully finished BE-50AE chronometer-rated movement with 42 hour power reserve. More elegant and contemporary hands inlaid with Super-LumiNova®, previously only seen within the ALT1-C Polished watches, adorn these new classics.

With 2018 marking 100 years of British military aviation, the ALT1-C Blue has been redesigned in the signature blue synonymous with the RAF. The understated blue pantone works well with a blue nubuck strap and celebrates this landmark year, befitting for a brand steeped in aviation heritage. The panda dial design of the ALT1-C White featuring black subdials and incorporating a subtle internal black bezel is a nice counterpart to the heritage themed ALT1-C/CR.
