Looks good. How did you get in with the hour and minute hands ?

The Bremont also uses metal from G-BOAB and starts at a fraction under £10K.

It's a very nice watch in the metal with a very individual design. Particularly striking is the GREY dlc coating which seems a lovely midpoint between steel and black dlc.

Looks great but the price is too rich for me

Sorry to be the party pooper, but it looks a bit gimmicky in my opinion.

This looked amazing.

It's a shame it's a LE with plane metal in it.
The dial is really good, would sell stacks as a regular piece.

More bold designs like this please!

Prefer the common/garden version, but I admit to ownership bias. Bits of scrap metal - nah.

Not for me, for a number of reasons. But...

...if it helps to raise the company’s profile, all well and good. Plus I suspect there will be 50 very happy owners, so they don’t need my endorsement.

I hope those who want one the most, get one and wear it!

Considering what this is about I do favour the bremont design but i love the CWL price and I’m sure it do very well ;) I never been on Concorde but I was about 12 meters away from 1 many years back and it looked much smaller then I imagined :)

Never could resist a c8, and this is a corker.

I'm in.

Bravo CW.

I remember, as a youngster, being outside playing in the garden in the summer and hearing a boom noise. My parents told me it was concorde. Not so sure it would have gone supersonic anywhere near the home counties*, about 40 mins by car from Heathrow, but I believed them :lol:

Not my cup of tea either but I can imagine they’ll be more than popular enough to sell the 50.

This is the Bremont version...

https://www.bremont.com/collections/lim ... white-gold
One of Bremonts Supersonic models. There's Rose gold, white gold as linked, and stainless steel.

I'm not a fan but at least it's a good looking watch.
