Bremont is starting to create a serious legacy in the movie industry. After being featured in Kingsman: The Secret Service, they can very soon be seen on the wrist of Tom Hardy, while playing Eddie Brock in the upcoming blockbuster ‘Venom’, which is due to release this October. The watch selected for this prominent role is the U-2/51-JET.
This Bremont is most certainly suited for an action hero as its 43-millimeter case features a black DLC coating and is water resistance up to 100 meters. It is powered by modified caliber 11 1/2″‘ BE-36AE, which is Chronometer certified and can be admired through the case back which is fitted with tinted black smoked glass.
The dial is very legible, as it combines the vintage ‘51’ lume that we already know from the Limited Edition P-51 by Bremont, yet now combined with steel hands which are heat treated so that they have a beautiful blue tint. Legibility is further ensured by the sapphire crystal, which has an anti-glare coating on both sides. While the timekeeping functions of the watch are operated with the crown at two o’clock, the one at four o’clock controls the rotating bezel which is placed under the sapphire crystal. All combined a great watch for action heroes, but also a very tempting offering for mere mortals!
