Bremont SOLO-34: Bremont Updates Chronometer Collection for Women
Bremont is refreshing its collection of ladies’ mechanical chronometers with the introduction of the new Bremont SOLO-34. Building upon the continued interest in the women’s range, the brand has redeveloped the elegant timepiece in a slightly larger 34mm case size.
The chronometer-rated SOLO-34 collection is built using beautifully polished stainless steel and boasts two different dial designs. The AJ line has the more modern aesthetic with applied index markers and named in honour of Amy Johnson, who flew her DH-60 Gypsy Moth from England to Australia in 1930. The addition of a mother-of-pearl dial is not only new to the women’s offering but is also something entirely new for the brand. Complementing this design is the classic and timeless LC timepiece with its elegant, applied Roman numerals adorning the dial. Named after Lettice Curtis, the SOLO-34/LC celebrates arguably the most remarkable female pilot of the Second World War who flew a wide range of military combat aircraft with the Air Transport Auxiliary and was the first woman to qualify to fly a four-engine bomber.
Bremont Co-Founder, Giles English: “We have seen increasing interest in our smaller SOLO ranges and are therefore pleased to offer this new case size with updated movement, improving on the former SOLO-32 editions. Producing accurate, chronometer-rated, durable and stylish watches is something we pride ourselves on at Bremont and we feel the new SOLO-34 timepieces will deliver on every level. We’re looking forward to adding further to our women’s collection in the future.”
The beautifully finished BE-92AV automatic movement, with 42-hour power reserve, can be seen through the open case back and is housed in a 34mm case that is a little over 10.5mm in thickness. The watches are manufactured using Bremont’s trademarked Trip-Tick® case construction and, as with other core collection timepieces, the polished SOLO-34 steel cases will undergo a similar hardening treatment to 2,000 Vickers. Originally inspired from a technique used widely in the aerospace industry, the signature coating provides high impact resistance whilst maintaining its polished surface finish.
The convex sapphire crystal is treated with nine layers of anti-reflective coating applied to both sides of the glass for increased legibility. The high standard of finish and attention to detail can be seen in the meticulous machining of the three-part cases which take considerable time and skill to apply. The SOLO-34 range of watches will be available on a variety of straps as well as a polished stainless steel bracelet.
