Bremont Watches has announced a limited edition version of the MBII pilots watch for the British retailer The Watch Gallery. This new model, the MBII/TWG, sports a very handsome midnight blue case barrel (the standard MBII model offers either green, orange, or grey) and has been fitted with a sapphire display back that is similar to what is used on the new Bremont ALT1-WT World Timer.

The MBII was one of Bremont's break out models and effectively offered open availability of the MBI, which is only available to pilots who had actually ejected in a Martin-Baker aircraft ejection seat and is recognizable thanks to a bright red aluminum case barrel. From a watch perspective, the MBI and MBII are noteworthy due to their use of a proprietary anti-shock system which Bremont developed in a partnership with Martin-Baker to protect the BE-36AE movement from the extreme g-forces experienced by some pilots. I really like that the changes to the MBII/TWG are subtle enough to make the watch easily recognizable to a collector or fan but not change the overall style or spirit of the MBII design with additional logos or text.

This new MBII/TWG is limited to just 30 units which will sell directly through The Watch Gallery for £3450 (~$5400 USD). The MBII will always be one of Bremont's signature models thanks to its three piece hardened steel case, internal Roto-click bezel, and specialized anti-shock and anti-magnetic protection. The dark blue color used on the case barrel looks excellent with the brushed surfaces of the case and collectors will appreciate a view of the decorated movement and the added exclusivity of a 30 unit run.

Love the blue knurled middle piece on the case, and the case in general.  Really don't like the yellow.  That hand looks like it has a tennis racquet at the end - just silly.

This is several times more attractive than the Bremont we looked at the other day. This is certainly much more the type of design I think about when remembering this brand. This has nothjing to do with being in a rut, it is all about the purposeful expansion of a signature look. Well done. The curved strap ends that don't integrate flush with the case look ridiculous, but thats easily mended.

So, of course it is strictly limited and won't ever be seen in the wild.

  1. […] While the Classic Fusion is easily my favourite line from Hublot, I much prefer the 42mm versions. The combination of titanium and ceramic should make the larger case size more wrist friendly, but no matter the materials both of these models are on the larger size of the spectrum. The TWG connection is also of some note, as they seem to understand the difficult balance one must strike when designing a limited edition model for a second brand. Unlike other cross collaborations we all try to forget, the watches made for TWG (Hublot or otherwise) are fairly reserved and generally just offer the addition of a specially coloured element, like the lovely blue middle barrel on the Bremont MBII/TWG.
