Bremont Limited Edition Longitude - 18ct White Gold

Regular price £21,995.00 Sale

The Bremont Limited Edition Longitude pays tribute to Great Britain’s role in clock and watchmaking, and contribution to time, astronomy, and navigation. A British-made luxury mechanical timepiece by Bremont Chronometers.

It has always been Bremont’s ambition to bring the art of industrial high-end watchmaking back to British shores and the classic yet contemporary design of the Limited Edition Bremont Longitude marks a significant milestone in this journey. Proudly made in the UK, not only does the Longitude house the brand’s first manufactured movement from its new ENG300 movement series, but it also incorporates original brass used to demarcate the historic Flamsteed Meridian Line and can be seen forming a ring in the back of the Longitude timepiece, engraved with the serial number of the watch.

Only 75 available. 

With a power reserve of 65 hours, this special timepiece has its power reserve indicator at the 6 o’clock position resembling the Royal Observatory Greenwich’s red time ball, a simple yet ingenious visual device that gave nineteenth-century sailors accurate time. The Longitude also features a big date function and an off-set seconds hand at 9-o’clock. A meridian line runs from 12H to 6H. On the case back are Longitude coordinates for the Royal Observatory in Greenwich.

At Greenwich, the brass Flamsteed Meridian line marks the historic position where the first Astronomer Royal, John Flamsteed, made his observations and laid the foundations for accurate timekeeping and navigation.

Bremont has made considerable investment into new machinery, staff, and training and the firm’s in-house technical team has re-engineered 80% of the base calibre, including making a number of design improvements, in order to build a proprietary movement to the brand’s unique specification.

In partnership with Royal Observatory Greenwich.

The 18ct white gold Limited Edition Bremont Longitude is complemented by a black alligator embossed calf leather strap. In the series, an 18ct rose gold and steel limited edition watch complete this very special collection.

About Bremont Chronometers

Bremont is an award-winning British company producing beautifully engineered chronometers at their headquarters in Henley on Thames, England.

Made in the UK

Great Britain has a wonderful history when it comes to watch making and has probably been the home to more advances in horology than any other nation. Bremont is determined to play a pivotal role in the reinvigoration of this industry on British shores and as a result, Bremont manufactures parts at its Parts Manufacturing Facility. Every Bremont is hand built and tested before leaving the Henley-on-Thames workshop.

The ENG300 Movement Series

The 22 jewelled ENG376 movement boasts an enviable technical specification. With a depth of 4.95mm and diameter of 25.6mm, the ENG376 features a silicon escapement and a custom balance bridge and full tungsten rotor both designed to reflect the architecture of Bremont’s state-of-the-art headquarters at The Wing, the home of British watchmaking.

Renowned for beautifully made, yet robust and shock-proof timepieces, Bremont sought to make improvements wherever there was an opportunity to enhance the toughness of the base calibre.

One notable improvement was choosing to utilise a full balance bridge, which supports the balance wheel assembly.

To fine tune the movement’s accuracy, traditional adjustment screws are used on the free sprung balance wheel, a more difficult method of rate adjustment, but also more precise, and links back to early marine chronometry. Further design changes include revisions to the escapement, the automatic winding bridge jewels and a modified wheel bridge amongst others.
