Introducing the Bremont H1 Generation Watch Collection

Introducing the Bremont H1 Generation Watch Collection

In what is possibly their most important launch ever, Bremont reveals their first in-house manufactured movement into a core collection of 40mm timepieces. The British brand are calling the series the Bremont “H1 Generation” with each design housing the ENG300 movement, a calibre first seen within the Bremont Longitude Limited Edition from last year. Now the movement presents itself across three permanent designs: the Bremont Supernova, Bremont Audley and Bremont Fury. There are seven watches in total to shop and with each resolutely different from the rest, there is something for everyone.

Early last year, Bremont got the entire industry excited when they revealed the opening of their Manufacturing and Technology Centre “the Wing”. The state of the art facility remains the first of its kind in the UK since the 1960’s and Bremont assured it would mean their entire manufacturing process being kept on home soil. Of course, this meant most of us luxury watch enthusiasts waited eagerly for the British watch brand’s first in-house movement and lo and behold, this came quickly with the launch of the Bremont Longitude Limited Edition collection. The ENG300 movement series marked the first time in fifty years that a movement had been built to such a degree on British shores and Bremont, being the perfectionists that they are, ensures every watch powered by it is tested using Bremont’s H1 Timing Standard.

Bremont describes their H1 Timing Standard as being directly comparable to the ISO3159:2009 Chronometer test. In addition, Bremont tests each movement, complete with the rotor and complications in the very same facility that the watches themselves are built. This is a really impressive feat for a brand as young as Bremont and it makes the new 40mm core collection timepieces launched today all that more special. As part of their testing procedures, Bremont have collaborated with long-time partner Martin Baker, placing the ENG300 in a concept watch case and testing it on live ejection launches. We’re also promised an extended warranty with all Bremont watches powered by the ENG300 movement series of 5 years. The name for the Bremont H1 Timing Standard is a nod to Bremont’s home in Henley-on-Thames as well as a reference to John Harrison’s first ‘H1’ marine timekeeper that notoriously sought to measure longitude out at sea.

This is the most significant launch for us as a business because we have finally been able to scale up our production to be able to introduce the ENG300 movements in core watch collections and invested in our own chronometer testing, it represents a massive step forward for us as a business” – Giles English, Bremont Co-Founder.

The Bremont Supernova Watch

Our favourite out of the trio of new Bremont H1 Generation watches is the Supernova. It’s the brand’s first take on an integrated sports watch and by the sounds of it, the development of the case was no easy feat taking three years at the hands of Bremont’s in-house designers and engineers. There are three Bremont Supernova watches to choose from, each engineered from stainless steel with elegant curves, integrated lugs and a matching integrated bracelet with a beautiful t-link architecture. The diameter comes in at 40mm and pairs with a fluted screw down crown, brushed and polished surfaces and flat sapphire crystal glass. You can then choose from three different dial variations on the Bremont Supernova: Midnight Blue, Pitch Black or Albus watch. Each opts for its own set of stylised hardware, the Midnight Blue model electing classic stick indexes while the latter models showcase large Arabic numerals. There’s a raised centre section, a sunken big date and Superluminova markings on the hours, minutes and seconds hand. A small power reserve indicator is also included at 6 o’clock for displaying the 65 hour power reserve. As you’d expect, the Bremont Supernova watches are powered one of the ENG300 series movements, the ENG375 calibre to be exact, which is handsomely showcased through the exhibition case back.

The Bremont Fury Watch

In a slightly more predictable take, Bremont have also included a gorgeous new pilot’s watch into its Bremont H1 Generation collection. Named the Bremont Fury, the 40mm three-hand pilot’s instrument celebrates – like so many of Bremont’s watches – Nick and Giles English’ love of aviation. It also nods to some of the world’s most renowned aircrafts including the 1930’s Hawker Fury and the 1940’s WW2 Hawker Sea Fury. Despite already having an extensive portfolio of pilot’s watches under their belt, the Bremont Fury watches look strikingly different from the rest, largely for their prominent knurled crown at 3 o’clock, dagger hands, vintage markers and of course, the Bremont manufactured ENG365 calibre movement within. The case also presents a scratch resistant PVD treated case barrel offered in black or blue to pair with a textured dial of the same colour. As with any Bremont pilot’s watch, legibility is prioritised with Superluminova markings added to the indexes and hands and a power reserve indicator is included at 6 o’clock.

The Bremont Audley Watch

Lovers of a sophisticated dress watch will be eager to meet the Bremont Audley watch of the Bremont H1 Generation collection. Crafted from a choice of polished stainless steel or 18 carat gold, these 40mm timepieces form part of Bremont’s Mayfair family offering an elegant simplicity hard to find nowadays in a classic dress watch. The cases are pure and understated, offering a small knurled crown at 3 o’clock and slender, curved lugs which help secure the crocodile embossed leather straps to the wrist. Both the steel and gold cases pair with leather straps in chocolate brown. At the centre, the

elect a silver sunray metal dial dressed in fluted and faceted indexes and tapered hands in the same colour as their case metal. There’s also a recessed date window at 3 o’clock and like its brothers, an indicator at 6 o’clock for the 65 hour power reserve. As part of the Bremont H1 Generation watch collection, you can expect to find the Bremont ENG365 movement within proudly displayed through the open case back.
