Bremont has just released a murked out GMT watch that looks to be one of the coolest pieces for them this year. The white-on-black design and PVD-coated case definitely offer a change of pace from Bremont’s usual pieces and the watch was made in conjunction with “iconic ejection seat manufacturer Martin-Baker,” a nod to Bremont’s aviation roots.

“The Bremont partnership with Martin-Baker defines our status as a strong player in tool watches and our dedication to testing our watches in the most extreme of environments. Relied upon by many of the military squadrons and special forces that Bremont manufactures for worldwide, the MB range showcases Bremont’s commitment to making timepieces as robust and precise as the operations they serve,” said Bremont CEO Davide Cerrato.

From the release:

The striking all-black design incorporates Super-LumiNova® coated hands and numerals ensuring optimum visibility. Turning the watch over reveals its exhibition smoked crystal case-back through which the mechanical movement and rubberised anti-shock movement mount can be seen. The timepiece is complemented by a highly durable and ergonomic black-on-black Chalgrove strap, aptly named after Martin-Baker’s site at Chalgrove airfield, Oxfordshire. The high-performance bi-material strap combines both rubber and leather, offering something practical and robust that also has enhanced moisture resistance.

The watch is limited to 50 pieces and you have control over an internal GMT chapter ring. The whole thing is designed to survive ejection seat incidents, which suggests that the owners of this watch might want to invest in some flying lessons to truly experience the power of the piece. The best thing? Bremont priced it right at $5,450. It’s a great watch at a more than acceptable price.
