Have you ever wondered where we would’ve been today if weren’t for the Wright brothers and their invention of the air plane?
Have you ever wondered what it would have been like living in that era, when the first successful flying machine took flight? Well, Bremont has made it possible for us to now own a part of history with its Wright Flyer timepiece.
Following in the footsteps of Bremont’s Codebreaker watch, which contained parts of an Enigma Cipher machine, Bremont’s Wright Flyer pays tribute to a legend from the history of aviation, incorporating a small piece of the muslin fabric that was used on the wings of the 1903 Wright Flyer onto the watch’s spinning rotor.
Taking it a step further, Bremont has fitted this mind-blowing timepiece with its first in-house-built movement, the BWC/01, which offers a power reserve in excess of 50 hours.
Available and limited to just 300 pieces in stainless steel, 100 in rose gold, and 50 in white gold, Bremont allows a fortunate few to own this piece of history, previously only given to a select few, such as the likes of Neil Armstrong, who had a piece of this fabric in his pocket when he first stepped onto the moon.
