Bremont News from Basel 2012
While we did not have the pleasure of attending Basel this year, we have tapped all of our resources to bring you an update on one of our favorite brands. Bremont made a splash at Basel by announcing a couple of excellent-looking new watches and unfortunately being the victim of a robbery. There is very little that we know about the robbery except that the thieves made off with quite a few Bremont models and our religious sources have confirmed there is a special level of hell for those who steal watches. Returning to the news at hand, remember the Bremont ALT1-WT that we showed you in January? Click past the jump for some live photos of both the black and the blue dial production models and even a look at the new Solo.

Next up, the Bremont Solo is now available with a white dial! The new Solo will be available in the same 43mm case size as the original but Bremont has thought to make a 37mm “Ladies” size which can be had with rose gold markers, handset and bezel. Here are a series of live photos courtesy of Piers at Alt1tude.com (thanks!). We think the crisp and bright white dial on the Solo looks stunning and may make this new version THE Solo to have.
While this is a very strong showing from Bremont this year with the new Solo and production ATL1-WT, they further impressed the Basel crowd with a follow up to the EP 120 and P-51 limited editions. This new flagship watch is called the Victory and will integrate actual materials from the HMS Victory (an 18th century ship). We will have more on a the Victory next week, so be sure to stay tuned and follow us on twitter (@watchreport) for daily news and updates and you can follow Bremont directly via @bremontwatchcom.
