By now you’ve probably heard that Pippa Middleton, sister of Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge, married hedge funder James Matthews this past weekend on May 20. And what was he wearing on his wrist for the nuptials? A Bremont Watches In Dubai Replica Jaguar MKII. In case you don’t know, Matthews is the CEO of Eden Rock Capital Management Group and became engaged to Pippa in 2016. But enough about the gossip, how about the watch.
The Bremont Jaguar MKII was first introduced in February 2015 and was created in partnership with British automaker Jaguar. The collection was made to celebrate the iconic E-Type (designed by Malcolm Sayer in the early 1960s), which also happened to be the getaway car that Matthews drove for the wedding. Not a bad way to roll, huh?
The Bremont Jaguar MKII.
The MKII itself is a 43mm stainless steel bi-register chronograph with black dial and red and white accents. The registers are supposed to mimic instruments found in the dashboard of the E-Type, with the signature “red line” quadrant on the seconds sub-dial. The sapphire crystal caseback exposes the caliber BE-50AE automatic movement, which has a special pierced rotor that is supposed to look like the steering wheel of the E-Type. The chronometer-certified caliber is based on the ETA 7750 movement, with Bremont Watches Amazon Replica modifications.
All Bremont Classic watches are Chronometer certified and hand built with restricted numbers.Bremont, the British watch brand founded in 2002 and best known for its luxury pilots’ watches, has this season come to market using a vintage-influenced dive watch to compete with some of the historical players. Dubbed the Supermarine Form 301, or S301 for brief, the watch draws many of its influences in the early sailors of the 1950s while nevertheless being distinctly Bremont in its own design. The watch is termed not in homage to the early Rolex Submariners it remixes, but rather with regard to the British airplane brand of the same name and the Type 300 designation given to the prototype Spitfire fighter assembled in the 1930s and flown in World War II.At 40 mm in steel, and using Bremont’s trademark “Trip-Tick” triple-layer event design, the watch is relatively sparse, at 13 mm in height, and utilizes a DLC coating to the instance barrel, or middle layer of the circumstance. On its side is a more traditional gold-accented crown, clearly absent of the unique crown guards and two o’clock placement seen on some of the brand’s previous dive watches like the S500 and S2000. Its hour and minute hands have a classic syringe-style more prevalent on historical pilot’s watches, but the notable red lollipop seconds hand and “Supermarine” print towards the bottom of the dial recalls early-1950s and overdue-’60s Submariners. The London-based brand is currently supplying the S301 starting for $4,095 at theatres worldwide.
While this isn’t exactly what I would call a dress watch – Matthews was wearing a full morning coat and everything – I’m sure the chronograph was useful when timing the drive to and from the ceremony. Plus, could you imagine him not wearing a British watch? Me either.
