Bremont Watch IonBird Rolls Royce Bracelet. Bremont is teaming up with Rolls Royce to become the Official Timing Partner for its all electric speed record attempt. A dedicated team has been developing the plane, aptly called the Spirit of Innovation and are aiming for the zero emissions aircraft to be the fastest in history. Rolls Royce is aiming to surpass the current record of 213mph by reaching speeds over 300mph early next year.
Bremont was involved in the design of the planes cockpit which will feature a Bremont stopwatch, and the company has machined canopy release parts from its Henley on Thames manufacturing facility. Bremont is also releasing a new mechanical chronometer called the Bremont ionBird to celebrate the partnership, which the test pilots will be wearing for the development and record breaking flights. The Bremont ionBird uses a lightweight aviation grade titanium 43mm case and houses a BE-93-2AV chronometer rated GMT movement which is safely cushioned against shock using Bremonts proprietary Anti Shock technology inside the case. The two time zones are clearly displayed on the very readable dials, and there is a nod back to the early days of aviation with the vintage feel numerals and bronze hands.
