2018 marked 100 years of British Military Aviation, the ALTI-C/BL was redesigned with the signature Blue of the RAF. A round satin-finished stainless steel 43mm case, with the same finished bezel, gives an impression of quality and endurance. 100m water resistance. Domed Sapphire Crystal with AR Coating protects the Royal Blue dial, a white minute chapter ring adds an interesting border. Baton markers for the hours replace the usual Arabic numerals, giving it a modern feel. Slim rounded hands remind me of the propeller of a plane, both hands and indexes are filled with Supa-LumiNova. The 2 subdials indicate 60 seconds and 30-minute registers, they are white with concentric circles for detailing. Finally, a date window sits at the 6 o’clock position. The text has been kept to a stylish minimum with just Bremont and Chronometer. On the back, we have a screw-down exhibition case with the same Sapphire crystal as the front. Inside we can see the skeletonised Bremont Rotor with its piston engine detailing sitting on top of the Bremont Automatic Calibre 13 1/4''' BE-50AE - it is technically a modified Valjoux 7750. It is COSC chronometer-certified, 28 Jewels, beating at 28800 beats per hour with up to 42 hours power reserve. Fitted with a Blue nubuck leather strap with signed buckle.
Points of Mention
This watch is sold with its original Bremont box, original Bremont paperwork and Bremont COSC Certificate, the watch was purchased from retail January 2020. The watch comes paired on its original blue tone thick strap with Bremont signed buckle. The watch is in worn condition but is overall very good, see the photos. The watch is running well as you would expect.
I have always loved the ALT1-C and this blue dial edition is absolutely perfect, especially with its brushed finished case rather than polished, gives a real utilitarian feel to the watch. Plus, who doesn't like blue?!
