In January the British replica Breitling watches company Bremont brought out a new collection of world-time chronographs. The Bremont Kingsman Special Edition watches were designed in conjunction with the new film Kingsman: The Secret Service, out this month from 20th Century Fox. The three new models, which are worn throughout the film by actors like Colin Firth and Michael Caine, are available for purchase now.
In terms of Bremont watch genealogy, the Kingsman Special Edition bears a resemblance to the ALT1 family of fake Breitling watches. It combines a tricompax dial design for the chronograph with a 24-hour world timer. The world-time function is controlled via the crown at 8 o’clock, which rotates the bidirectional internal bezel bearing the names of cities in 24 time zones. Since Kingsman focuses on a jetsetting world of English spies, Bremont’s British pedigree and travelers’ watches make a perfect complement.
The Kingsman Special Edition has a BE-54AE movement. As dial arrangement would suggest, this caliber is Bremont’s version of the ETA Valjoux 7750. It is a 13 1/4-lignes automatic movement, beating at 28,800 vph. It has a Glucydur balance, an Anachron balance spring, a Nivaflex 1 mainspring, and 25 jewels. Its power reserve is 42 hours. The skeletonized rotor is decorated by Bremont and features the brand’s name. The Breitling replica watches has been COSC-certified as a chronometer.
The dial has hours, minutes and chronograph seconds mounted at center, along with an arrow-tipped 24-hour UTC hand. This hand points to the appropriate hour once the city has been selected. The running seconds display is at 9 o’clock; the chronograph minutes subdial is at 12 o’clock and the chronograph minutes subdial at 6. A date window is at 3 o’clock.
The watches use Bremont’s three-part “Trip-Tick” case construction, involving a case middle or barrel of a distinct design (often in another alloy or treatment). The case is 43 mm in diameter with a lug width of 22 mm. Its height is 16 mm. The domed sapphire crystal is scratch-resistant and has nonreflective coating. The caseback bears a sapphire crystal window. The new replica watches uk is water resistant to 100 meters and comes on a leather strap with a pin buckle.
Kingsman: The Secret Service was written and directed by Matthew Vaughn, based on a comic book by Mark Millar. The film stars Colin Firth, Samuel L. Jackson, Michael Caine and Mark Strong, among others. It is in theaters in the U.S. on February 13.
Bremont has produced three versions of the Kingsman Special Edition in steel, DLC-coated steel and rose gold. The rose-gold version has a DLC-coated middle section. The dial is made of white metal, with hands coated in Super-LumiNova. The caseback is also in rose gold, and it comes on an alligator strap. It costs $20,285.
The DLC-treated Kingsman costs $6,650. Its rotor, caseback and screws are also DLC coated. It comes on a black calfskin strap and has a black metal dial.
The third model is made of hardened stainless steel. It comes on a brown calfskin strap and has screws and caseback in stainless steel as well. It costs $6,495.
All three versions of the watch are worn by characters in the film.
In addition to the Swiss replica Breitling watches appearing throughout the film, Bremont co-founder Nick English also makes a cameo as a member of the Kingsmen.
