Itâ€™s ten years since the British watchmaker launched its first watches. One of those early models gets an update for 2017.Aviation has long been a source of inspiration but also a raison dâ€™etre for Bremont, a watch company founded by two brothers, Nick and Giles English in 2002. â€œThe fi rst Bremont collection comprised a three-model line-up of pilot chronographs which included the ALT1-P. It is not only a watch Nick and I are incredibly proud of as an integral part of the brandâ€™s heritage but also as a timepiece we believe will look as good now as it will in 20 yearsâ€™ time. Updating the design seemed like a natural progression for this functional yet stylish pilotâ€™s watch,â€ says co-founder

The ALT1-P chronograph became a popular choice with civilians and aviation professionals alike, and the updated models (black, blue and cream versions are available) features new dials, larger Superluminova hands, a new, super-strong stainless steel case design and a sapphire crystal case back with nine layers of antireflective coating, ensuring its peerless legibility.
