"Martin-Baker is a British aviation company responsible for supplying 70% of the world’s air-forces with fighter ejection seat technology. They first approached Bremont to create the definitive aviation watch in 2007/08. More than simply putting a logo on an existing model, the watch had to withstand the same rigorous testing programme as the ejector seats themselves. Two years later, the Bremont MB range was born. The limited edition Bremont MBI was solely for pilots who had ejected from an aircraft using a Martin-Baker seat. This rather select group includes US congressmen and senators, CEOs of leading FTSE and Dow companies, and the chiefs of six air forces around the world (the one exception is a major Hollywood star who tracked down and persuaded an ejectee to buy a watch on his behalf). While the MBI is reserved for the few, the MBII is available to all and has become a Bremont best seller." And that's straight from their website! Sums it up perfectly!
Points of Mention
This watch is sold as a complete set and comes with its original box, papers, cosc card and a few little extras! The watch is pre-owned but still in good condition and has a small amount of manufacture warranty left!
Having worked with Bremont at retail for a few years I can safely say my appriciation for the brand and what they are trying to achieve for watch making in the UK is great and I wish them nothing but the best! This MBII is a perfect example of their ability to make truly great watches!
