Bremont X Jaguar New MKII Chronograph Timepiece

Bremont X Jaguar MKII Chronograph

Bremont has enjoyed a very special relationship with Jaguar over the years. Back in 2014 Jaguar partnered with watchmaker Bremont to create a limited edition watch that commemorated the marquee’s E-Type continuation series. Only six of the watches were made and offered to the owners of those $1.5 million E-Types. The two brands have once again come together to introduce the new MKII Chronograph timepiece which takes its inspiration from the Jaguar Lightweight E-Type.

The MKII instantly transports the wearer back to the golden era of 1960s sports car motoring, its black dial carrying the Jaguar heritage logo above the six o’clock position and its hour markings being in the style of the numerals found on E-Type instruments. The classic chronograph layout – featuring two subdials at the three o’clock and nine o’clock positions – is achieved through the use of the beautifully decorated BE-50AE automatic movement which has been specially customised by Bremont to a unique specification, a subtle ‘red line’ on the 60-minute counter paying homage to the E-Type’s tachometer.

The 43mm stainless steel case – which is fitted with a double-domed crystal to enhance the vintage appearance of the watch – is made entirely in the UK by Bremont using its renowned, three-part ‘Trip-Tick’ technology which ensures a hardness seven times greater than that of a normal steel watch. Visible through a sapphire crystal case back, the mechanism again pays tribute to the E-Type with an automatic ‘steering wheel’ winding weight in the same style as that of the MKI. Further automotive imagery can be seen in the ‘tyre tread’ winding crown, which is topped with the Jaguar heritage logo to match that of the dial.
