Alongside the new white-dialed Solo and the production-ready ALT-1WT, Bremont also launched their newest limited edition at BaselWorld this year. This new Bremont flagship is called the Victory, and in keeping with the philosophy of their hugely successful EP120 and P-51 limited editions, the Victory actually sources some of its materials from the HMS Victory. Bremont is working in a partnership with The Nations Museum of the Royal Navy to build these limited edition pieces which source both oak timber and copper from the famous 18th century ship.
The Victory is an automatic chronograph with retrograde seconds and retrograde date powered by the BE-83AR movement which features 39 jewels, a 46 hour power reserve, and is fully decorated. Measuring 43 x 17 mm, the Victory will be available in either stainless steel or rose gold and will come fitted with a PVD copper inner barrel made of copper sourced from the HMS Victory. Further details for this British designed chronograph include a case back which features a hand-etched sapphire crystal and even integrates oak from the HMS Victory that you can see after the jump.
The dial design, shown larger below, appears to be both balanced and beautifully detailed without sacrificing the legibility of any one display or measurement. After the huge success of the EP120 and P-51 limited editions, the Victory has had collectors clamoring for Bremont’s newest flagship in advance of delivery which starts towards the end of this year. If you want a Victory of your own you had best hurry up as even though the official lunch is not until July 12th, Bremont has confirmed that all of the gold versions are spoken for and as little as 30 are left of the 250 unit edition of the stainless steel version.
These top-tier limited editions are just one part of Bremont’s signature appeal to watch buyers. The entire Bremont line also includes special editions (like the Norton and Supermarine Descent), military-only editions, and their standard collection which is full of fan-favorites like the ALT1-C and the MBII. The Victory looks like a fitting follow up to the P-51 and it is exciting to see Bremont branch into naval history as a source of inspiration for their newest design.
