DUBAI – The Bremont 2016 Limited edition celebrates the astonishing de Havilland DH-88 Comet, Grosvenor House, the aircraft that captured the world’s imagination with a phenomenal record-breaking flight in 1934.
Fighting exhaustion and significant mechanical challenges, while barely stopping for over three days, two men in their pioneering British racing aircraft won the incredible air-race from England to Australia.
To commemorate this feat and to raise funds for the Shuttleworth collection, Bremont is introducing the ‘Limited edition Bremont DH-88’ chronometer, a special timepiece which has been painstakingly handcrafted in the company’s workshops in England and in an elegant style reminiscent of that wonderful 1930s era.
The 282 stainless steel and 82 rose gold cases house the BE-54AE chronometer rated chronograph movement with GMT functionality. The timepieces also incorporate original spruce plywood from the undercarriage assembly of this winning aircraft. The watch retails at Dh74, 975 and Dh39, 975 at Rivoli Group stores in the UAE.
