Bremont's story is amazing, it is one of the reasons why fell in love with this brand. While they are fairly new to the watch market, founded in 2002, they have made a huge impact in the industry in a short time. All their watches are hand built in England and are all COSC certified.

So, what is next? A solid buck will not do. Sure it gave me a great idea of size. But, I have to take it up a notch. One of the unique features of a Bremont is their Trip-Tick® Case Design. Basically, a three piece construction consisting of a top bezel, center barrel, and case back. Time to part out the buck I made and make a Trip-Tick® like construction.

So there you have it. Not sure what I am going to do with these. Although, I do admit, I have been wearing it around to get the feel of the size. The weight is totally off, since there is no weight information at the time and the material used is fairly light. Perhaps I will make other Bremont models like the Martin Baker or models that will be nearly impossible for me to acquire like the Codebreaker, P-51, or EP120.
Maybe I should bring these to the watch dealer the next time I go. Hopefully, I will leave the dealer with a real Bremont Alt1-C.
