The British Manufacturer Bremont announced the release of its Solo-32 Collection comprised of ladies mechanical chronometers. Whilst Bremont has prided itself for several years in producing beautifully engineered and manufactured British mechanical watches geared towards the adventurous male, it has become apparent that the British watch brand is not short of female followers too.
Bremont Co-founder, Nick English said: “A large mechanical watch, relatively speaking, has always been a striking addition to any ladies wrist, but at the same time, many women like variety and a smaller more manageable timepiece is a wonderful option to have. We are adamant that we stick to our core principles with the new Solo-32 models. The collection will be beautifully engineered, robust mechanical chronometers with many of the watch parts being made at our Parts Manufacturing Facility in Silverstone, UK.”
The Bremont Solo-32 Collection sees the introduction of a new 32mm case and a number of new dial designs.
The Solo-32 AJ line has a more modern aesthetic with applied index markers and named in honour of one of the English brother’s childhood heroes, Amy Johnson, who flew her DH-60 Gypsy Moth from England to Australia in 1930. Complementing this model is the Solo-32 LC timepiece which is classic and timeless. Named after Lettice Curtis, arguably the most remarkable female pilot of the Second World War, flying a wide range of military combat aircraft with the Air Transport Auxiliary and being the first woman to qualify to fly a four-engine bomber.
The mechanical BE-10AE chronometer rated and beautifully finished automatic movement will have a 40 hour power reserve and will be housed in a polished steel case. These cases undergo a similar hardening treatment as the core collection timepieces and are water-resistant up to 100 metres.
The convex sapphire crystal is equally as hard and has nine layers of anti-reflective coating applied to both sides of the glass for increased legibility.
All three models feature hours, minutes, seconds and a date.
The Solo-32 range of watches will be available on a variety of leather straps and a stainless steel bracelet in summer 2016.
