Stuff we like: Bremont Lightweight E-Type
Posted on 12 August 2014
The watches will compliment the six new Jaguar E-Types being built by Jaguar Heritage that will finalise the original production run from 1963.
The attention to detail in this watch is just astonishing. For me, Bremont have absolutely nailed it, from matching the font on the dial to that of the original dials on the E-Type to imitating the steering wheel for the rotor.
The case of the watch will be made from White Gold with hints of Aluminium saved from the construction of the Lightweight E-Type cars. Even the crown has the tread of the Dunlop tyres that were used in the 60's on the Jaguar E-Type engraved on to it. The Blue Rallye style strap made from the same Connolly leather that is used for the interior of the car sets the watch off perfectly.
The watch will be powered by Bremonts first exclusive self-winding movement and will debut alongside the new Jaguar Lightweight E-Type at Pebble Beach Concours D'Elegance on 14th August 2014.
As you can tell, we are pretty excited about this watch and are equally impressed with what Bremont and Jaguar have achieved here.
