|My Bremont ALT1-C in front of DMC-CA|
I have mentioned that I have a liking to Bremont watches, I even made a 3D model of one. After months of research, I was able to acquire an ALT1-C. About a month ago, I found one on eBay and pulled the trigger. The watch was previously owned, but in great condition...a few minor scratches, nothing I would not eventually put there myself, as I have a history of running into things with my wrist. The watch was recently serviced by Bremont and had a new bezel. Basically, it was a 'new' watch. Lucky for me, the auction was to close on a holiday weekend. This meant, in theory, that others looking at the auction were too busy partying and not paying attention to the auction. You snooze, you lose...more like...you party, you no get watchy for less than half price of retaily.

I should note that this is an older model with 'old logo' and 'Swiss Made' on the dial. Newer Bremont's have an updated logo and "London" on the dial. Anyway, I wanted the deployant clasp for my watch. It just happened that one was being sold by a member of the ALT1TUDE Bremont forum. He also had a new strap, black leather with red stitching, and gave me a good deal on both. See image.
On the right side of the image is Bremont's NATO strap. I got this from another member of ALT1TUDE. Now, I have options for every occasion. Well, I do not have the metal bracelet, yet.
Remember that 3D model I made? Here are some images for comparison.

There you have it, my first Bremont.
