Further to the announcement of Bremont’s first ladies range of watches earlier this year, the British manufacturer has confirmed an additional ladies mechanical chronometer which will form part of its America’s Cup Collection. The Bremont AC I 32 is the first women’s watch within this range and is very much inspired by the original AC I.
Designed to be a classic watch befitting the history of the America’s Cup, the AC I 32 takes inspiration from the legendary J-Class yachts of the 30s with its understated design. As with the AC I, this miniature 32mm version incorporates sea blue steel hands and a fine ivory white opaline dial embossed with outlines of the America’s Cup trophy to give subtle pattern and depth to the face of the watch. Carrying the ‘London’ mark on the dial, the watch will be built in the UK using the highest quality components. The hand polished case is water resistant to 50m.
The mechanical BE-10AE chronometer rated and beautifully finished automatic movement, which can be seen through the exhibition case back, will have 40 hour power reserve and will be housed in a 32mm case that is a little over 9mm in thickness.
Bremont Co-Founder, Giles English: “The AC I has proven to be an incredibly popular timepiece since we launched it last year and has led to lots of enquiries by women who were after a ladies version so this seemed like a natural extension to the line. It is of course also very well timed with Bremont having just launched our first women’s watches.”
