Bremont ALT1-C/PW Classic Polished Chronograph
Further to the success of the ALT1-C Rose Gold in 2013, British luxury watch brand Bremont is introducing the new ALT1-C/PW classic polished chronograph. As with the rose gold model, this classically designed timepiece is based on the iconic ALT1-C collection, whilst taking design cues from the Victory Limited Edition, released in 2012, which incorporated original material from HMS Victory.
The ALT1-C/PW is Bremont’s first non-limited edition polished steel watch that will form part of the core collection and will only be produced in limited numbers each year. As with the core collection timepieces, this polished steel case will undergo a similar hardening treatment, providing high impact resistance but still retaining its polished surface finish. The signature coating gives the watch case extreme hardness, excellent toughness, good wear and high impact fatigue resistance; it is as such used widely in the aerospace industry.
As with all Bremont watches this COSC rated model will be manufactured at Bremont’s watchmaking facility in Henley-on-Thames, UK. The ALT1-C/PW will be available to purchase from authorised retailers from November 2014.
