Bremont makes a mean GMT and this one is one of their absolute best. Designed alongside the Bamford Watch Dept., the Bremont Bamford Aurora is fully blacked out and features enough lume choke a lightning bug.

The watch is limited to 500 pieces and has a 43mm stainless-steel DLC coated case and a sapphire bezel to indicate day and night. The one concern? This is a “caller” movement which means an independent GMT hand instead of an independent hour hand.

From the release:

Celebrating a sense of discovery, the Aurora is a timepiece suited to life’s adventurers who have a desire to forge unchartered paths and explore a world of countless opportunities. Tackling rugged and unfamiliar terrain in the pursuit of viewing one of the world’s greatest spectacles, witnessing the Northern Lights is a voyage of self-discovery for many. Through the launch of the Aurora, Bremont and Bamford Watch Dept. encourage you to pursue your own path to find your light.

The watch face features a base layer of luminous material, elegantly masked by a plate with index apertures. This innovative arrangement not only enhances visibility remarkably but also introduces a captivating depth to the dial’s appearance.

The dial’s sophistication is further amplified by the matte black hour and minute hands, filled with green Super-LumiNova. Complementing these are the distinctive matte black and gloss green GMT hand, alongside the gloss green central second hand—each filled with the same green Super-LumiNova for unmatched luminosity.

Flipping the watch reveals just as much thought has gone into its reverse, with a DLC-coated, ornately decorated case-back. The strap presents a seamless blend of style and comfort, crafted from black nubuck leather, accented with green stitching, and secured with a DLC-coated pin buckle.

The watch runs a modified Calibre 11 1/2’’’ BE-93-2AV. The unique piece is made by hand and costs $6,200. It is available for purchase now.
