Wright Flyer - Limited Edition
Bremont has pondered the question for years. Mechanically, it would have to be outstanding. Just as importantly, as with previous Bremont Limited Editions, it would have to incorporate a remarkable piece of history. In historical terms, what could be more remarkable than an original part of the first ever powered aircraft?
The 1903 Wright Flyer was built and designed by the Wright Brothers themselves in Dayton, Ohio, USA. It’s the invention and aircraft that changed the way we live today and it has now inspired our latest, and perhaps most unique, limited edition timepiece. The Wright Flyer timepieces feature some of the original fabric used on the 1903 Wright Flyer aircraft. Just as significantly, they showcase Bremont’s first ever proprietary movement, the BWC/01, part-developed and designed in Britain with our Swiss partners.
