Bremont launches collaboration with film "Kingsman: The Secret Service"
January 14, 2015
Bremont Watch Company has created a special edition collection of watches for director Matthew Vaughn’s upcoming film, “Kingsman: The Secret Service.”
The Bremont Kingsman Special Edition collection comprises three references: a rose gold chronograph with World time zone function ($20,285), a steel chronograph with World time zone function ($6,495) and a DLC coated steel chronograph with a 2nd time zone function ($6,650).
According to Bremont, “The agents from the super-secret British spy organisation, including Nick English, Co-Founder Bremont, who makes a cameo appearance as one of the Kingsmen, can be seen exclusively wearing these custom made Bremont timepieces. The Kingsman agents in the film each wear a beautifully crafted rose gold chronograph World Timer on an alligator strap, whilst the trainee recruits sport a black stealth-like chronograph on a NATO band. Additionally the Kingsman Stainless Steel model is worn by Merlin (Mark Strong) who is the trainer of these potential super spies for the top secret Kingsman organisation. It’s Merlin’s job to whip into shape central character Eggsy (Taron Egerton), a law-breaking teen who’s recruited by the Kingsman agents to help bring down megalomaniac Valentine (Samuel L. Jackson). The watches play a key part in the film and are an integral tool in the secret agents’ gadget line-up.”
The watches all have a 43 mm by 16 mm case with an internally rotating bi-directional bezel operated by crown at 8H with Bremont Roto-Click® technology. They share the same domed anti-reflective sapphire crystal upfront, and a flat sapphire on the back. All have a COSC certified modified ETA chronograph movement inside, and Bremont skeletonized and decorated rotors.
However, while the gold and steel models have a module that allows both a 24H UTC hand (2nd time zone) and World Time Zone function, and accompanying World Time bezel insert. The DLC model omits the World Time function and accordingly, features a different, 0-60 bezel, instead. Also, it should be noted, that the rose gold version has a DLC coated middle case.
Kingsman: The Secret Service, is due to be released February 2015, from 20th Century Fox, and stars Colin Firth, Samuel L. Jackson, Michael Caine and Taron Egerton.
