BRITISH DESIGNED WATCH OF THE YEAR WINNER: Bremont Supersonic

Unlike the Swiss, British watchmaker Bremont often saves its best launch of the year until the third quarter, during which it often hosts a spectacular party to introduce a limited edition.

2018 was no different, with fans of the brand gathering at London’s Design Museum to see the unveiling of the Bremont Supersonic, a watch celebrating the 50th anniversary of Concorde, and incorporating parts from the iconic aircraft.

The Bremont Supersonic contains the manufacturer’s first ever manual wind movement which has an 8-day power reserve with its countdown indicator on the dial at 12 o’clock.

It captures some of the essence of the 1970s, when Concorde first flew, with a sunburst white dial representing Concorde’s specially developed reflective paint.

The blue hands of the Supersonic echo British Airways blue on the aircraft’s famous livery and a subtle motif of the plane’s iconic silhouette can be seen on the second-hand sub dial.
