Re: New Bremont logo?

Good grief. Two incredibly generic watches, with no hint of “Bremont-ness” about them.

Based on those pictures I’ll be sticking with my legacy models. :)

Re: New Bremont logo?

I like that. :thumbup: Much prefer it to the previous, which IIRC was just the word Bremont in capital letters, underlined with a squiggle. :) Neil Are you talking about the V1 squiggle (propellor) or the V2? Details are important. :) Screenshot 2024-04-08 182427.png As for the new logo, it's inoff...

I have one of these for my Elite:

It takes any stress/discomfort out of winding/setting this watch.

Certainly similar, but it differs in a few details…

Re: Bremont Supermarine GMT

I have had a couple of Bremont bracelets, and I agree, they are unspecified (no on-the-fly adjustment, no taper etc) and expensive. However, for me, they are also very comfortable as their weight balances the watch head very nicely. https://i.postimg.cc/J7cz3byQ/IMG-5724.jpg https://i.postimg.cc/jjp...

Re: Post a picture from your latest ride

I seem to have the same issues with rotating my bike collection as I did with watches. Having bought a BMW R1250RS towards the end of last year, I had the opportunity to trade it for something else last week. The trade deal meant I "made a profit" on the BMW, so it was a painless transacti...

Re: The Rolex Explorer

I've been wearing mine today, having read this thread last night. So far, I've sorted out the cat litter tray and been out doing some training on the bike.Once I'd had it on for a couple of minutes, I forgot about it, apart from using it to tell time a few times. It's just a watch. A high quality, c...
