|Bremont B-52 Chronograph|
The case work in particularly is impressive - the case is hardened steel (2000 Vickers, more than ceramic and about the same sapphire) with an interesting form and construction. It is a sandwich with an aluminium centre band that can be anodised in a variety of colours, orange being the most striking.
Naturally Bremont is not the only company making military aviator's watches, IWC is famous for its Top Gun - and Breitling is trying too. And the military connections are genuine and intriguing. They have made watches for various squadrons and defence companies like ejection seat maker Martin Baker. The latest to receive their own watch are the operators of the B-52 Stratofortress strategic bomber of the US air force.
