Hands-on practice with Bremont MKI and MKII

Bremont JAGUAR MKII BLACK BJ-II/BK/R Replica Watch

At last year’s Concours D’Elegance conference in Pebble Beach,replica Jaguar announced plans to build six light E-type two-door sedans, exactly the same as it was produced in 1963. The initial “Special GT E” project required the construction of 18 vehicles. , Although only 12 are actually completed. Now, after more than 50 years, the remaining cars will be hand-made and delivered with six dormant serial numbers. To commemorate this event, Jaguar collaborated with Bremen to provide buyers of these cars with a watch, each watch’s dial is marked with its own serial number and engine number. This year, Bremen announced in Basel that it plans to officially put two watches into production, named MKI and MKII, both of which are based on a limited series and inspired by the car itself.

Both MKI and MKII will replace the polished steel with platinum and aluminum in limited edition fake watches. Although you will not print the serial number on the dial, you will get the same design, which is reminiscent of breaking through the car. Each dial has a gauge layout similar to an hour meter, between 8 o’clock and 4 o’clock, with nothing in between, and the “red line” quadrant between 3 o’clock and 4 o’clock represents the red line of the car engine.

Other details reminiscent of a car include hands with shapes and hands (very similar to the needles on the car’s dial) and pendulums visible from the rear of the watch. The rotor itself is based on the steering wheel of the car and is drilled to reduce weight. As a reminder, Jaguar signed at 6 o’clock on the dial.

MKI is a time and date watch that sets the running sub-dial at 9 o’clock on the dial and the date hole at 6 o’clock. This 43mm case has a double-dome crystal design for maximum return to originality, and uses the BWC / 01 movement of La Joux-Perret. MKII is a chronograph variant of the swiss aaa watch, with the same visual theme, and with a red line in the sub-dial at 9 o’clock. The case remains at 43 mm and uses the decorative BE-50AE (based on 7750) movement.
