This 2021 Bremont ALT1-C Griffon pays tribute to the Spitfire that Bremont Co-Founders Nick and Giles English’s father operated and Rolls-Royce now owns. The PR Mk XIX was the specialised photo-reconnaissance variant of the Spitfire and was one of the few with a Griffon engine and last of its type.
The 43mm hardened stainless steel Trip-Tick construction system is made up of 3 parts, a hardened steel bezel, a middle section made from DLC treated middle barrel, and finally a steel case back. The case is DLC coated in a scratch-resistant treatment. On the right side, we have the chronograph pushers and a signed screw-down crown. The smooth bezel holds a domed sapphire crystal AR coated. Above a black dial. A 60-minute track is precisely printed with large Arabic numerals coated in aged SuperLuminova. At 3 o’clock a 30-minute register and 9 o’clock a small seconds register each with concentric circles. At 6 o’clock a framed date window. Steel sword hands coated in SuperLuminova and a red-tipped chronograph hand. The Bremont logo at 12 o’clock with “Automatic Chronometer" at 6 o’clock completes this striking bi-compax chronograph. On the reverse, a screwed-down exhibition case back. Inside an automatic Bremont Cal. 13 1/4''' BE-50AE, 28 jewels, 28,800 beats per hour.
