They use old watch parts as decorative accents. Among the decor, is a table with the Bremont propeller logo made with watch parts. A wood table with the logo cut out and the cavity filled with old watch guts. I want this table. Beautiful piece!
Remember I mentioned the Jaguar? Cameron showed me the MKI
, the Bremont and Jaguar collaboration
. Another thing of beauty.

Obviously, I am not worthy of this watch. If I owned a Jaguar, maybe. But the way I see it, as I am unqualified to own the Red Band MBI,
I too am unqualified to own an MKI. I think I am already breaking 'tax bracket rules' by owning a luxury watch.

Currently looking to get my wrist in either an MBIII or ALT1-WT, but that is in the very distant future...unless I find a very good deal.
|B-1 Marine Clock|
The B-1 Marine Clock
was on display in the lounge area of the Boutique. The face and interior was painted by Ronnie Wood of the Rolling Stones.
Since I was at one of the Bremont Boutiques, I wanted a memento. I was debating on whether to get a key chain or a strap. Strap seemed more useful and a few weeks later I would win a key chain
|Display themed for the Codebreaker|
I wanted to see the Codebreaker
. Unfortunately, these were long sold out. Cameron showed me one more Limited Edition watch. The Wright Flyer

|A piece of from the original Wright Flyer on the rotor|
|Yeah, I tried it on|
It does not look quite right on my wrist, as again, I am not worthy of suck a piece. But boy, it is a beautiful piece. The watch features a piece of the original Wright Flyer that Wilbur and Orville used to take the first flight. Quite an honour to be in the presents of such a historical artifact. Wow, just wow!

|The mysterious trunk|
There was a trunk in the corner of the room. I wondered what was in this mysterious trunk. We were in the Boutique for over an hour and saw customers come and go. I noticed one customer was picking up a watch he purchased earlier, then noticed on of the associates open the mysterious trunk to grab a bag. This is where they keep the bags and catalogs.
I wanted one of those bags. The best way to get one of those bags was to purchase something. Sure, I could have asked for one, but what is the fun in that. Besides, if I was ever to buy something Bremont, this is one of four places in the world to do it. I decided on the Seattle Strap.

I had a great time at Bremont Mayfair. I want to thank Cameron for his hospitality and patience.

If you are in the London area, I recommend a visit to both the Bremont Boutiques. For me, two Bremont Boutiques down, two to go. Hong Kong and New York, I am coming for you.
