I can really appreciate this watch from a functional level. Truth be told, I don’t think that Bremont had to do too much new stuff to make the Bremont Martin-Baker MB-1 or MB-2 watches as durable as they are. It was more a matter of applying existing techniques to make the watch as durable as it is. The difference really is in the physical testing that the watches underwent to test out their durability. Basically they can survive the uber amount of g-forces you experience when being ejected out of an airplane via ejection seat, and the subsequent jerky ride back to Earth.
The MB-1 model is only given to people who undergo this journey in a real life situation. The MB-2 model is available to everyone else, and is just a little by different cosmetically. Decent looking watches as well, with that now signature, Bremont style.
