Bremont X Jaguar Lightweight E-Type
August 16, 2014
On Thursday, alongside the new Jaguar Lightweight E-type launch at Pebble Beach, Bremont debuted a six piece limited edition wristwatch that features a dial based on the E-types RPM gauge.
The 43 mm watch also has a bespoke rotor that looks just like the alloy-spoked steering wheel on the car, right down to the authentic wooden rim.
To further solidify the collaboration, the chassis number of the matching Lightweight E-type car is printed at the six o’clock position on each respective watch. Additionally, each watch carries engine number of the car it is paired with. Moreover, aluminum saved from Lightweight E-type construction used in white gold cases.
As if that is not enough, the winding crown is engraved with the pattern of the period-correct Dunlop racing tires that are fitted to the E-Type Lightweight.
The watch is powered by Bremont’s proprietary movement, the BWC/01, which we talk about here.
