Bremont + Timeless U2/T Limited Edition
The U2/T is our vision of the watch Bremont would have made had they been around circa World War II. To accomplish that goal, we took one of our favorite Bremonts, the U2, and incorporated elements that have the proper historic connotations. At the same time, we had a strong interest in legibility and functionality, so we created the cleanest design we possibly could.
To get that classic look, we used vintage lume and blued hands. The most radical change to the original U2, however, is found in the day and date complications. We attempted a wide variety of different positions and styles for these complications, but we felt it was not only easier to read without them, but truer to the historic pilot watch source material. In the end, we eliminated them entirely. The result is an all-business look.
Like all Bremonts, it features hardened steel and a chronometer-grade automatic movement, ensuring that it’s not a tool watch in looks alone, but a tough and functional timepiece.
