Here are some quick Bremont C-17 Globemaster photos which I was lucky enough to photo over at Bremont HQ before they fly out of the door to the lucky military types who will be receiving them.
All these watches had to be handled very carefully as they where due to have the engraving done. I managed to get a few out and here are some snaps.... But not the usual luxury of handling (and these are all minus straps).
As you probably already know - The Bremont C-17 Globemaster is a highly technical timepiece (movement includes a Glucydur balance, Anachron balance spring, Nivaflex 1 mainspring) which is only available to the military. As with all Bremont it bears the hallmarks of being extremely high quality & lovely design but also very accurate and built like a tank! (Hardened case, Chronograph certified movement) Obviously being a pilot's watch it contains a ZULU (UTC) hand and by using the Rotor-ClickŪ bezel the wearer can move the bezel, which has the C-17 landing locations 24 hour time zones... Don't ask me how this will work!
Hope you enjoy the photos. Military types, If you are expecting one of these, you WILL not be disappointed... Civilians, hope and wish that this will make an appearance in March 2012...
Thanks for viewing!
