Bremont and Rivoli launch Supersonic range in the Middle East
Bremont has pulled the wraps of the Supersonic, an aeronautically-themed watch made in partnership with the most legendary passenger plane of all time: the Concorde.
To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the world’s first supersonic passenger plane, Bremont and Rivoli Group officially launched the British brand’s eighth historical limited-edition timepiece, at The Esquire Townhouse.
WATCH THE LAUNCH LIVE
Produced in partnership with British Airways, the new Supersonic uses metal from the G-BOAB Concorde in its production process. BA donated enough aluminium for just 500 Supersonic timepieces.
The metal was taken from the third Concorde aircraft in British Airway’s fleet of supersonics and has been machined into a decorated ring visible through the case back. The ring also displays the aircraft’s number and registration, years of active service, number of supersonic flights taken as well as the Concorde’s top speed.
The new range is a fantastic addition to Bremont’s current line-up. In stainless steel, it is undoubtedly a handsome timepiece, with a stark power reserve at the 12-o’clock position very much akin to that of an aeroplane’s display console.
Under the hood lies a modified calibre BE-11M movement, which is the first ever manually-wound movement with an eight-day power reserve from the British watchmaker.
The Bremont Supersonic range, in either stainless steel, gold or rose gold, are available right now at all good Rivoli boutiques in Dubai. Prices range from AED45,000 in steel to AED82,600 in rose gold. The new range is available on a variety of Connolly leather straps in Concorde blue, blue crocodile and brown.
At the Esquire Townhouse, the Middle East’s leading men’s brand comes to life over three days of activations, talks, masterclasses, fitness sessions and private dinners, all held within in a jaw-dropping, AED60 million private mansion. Throughout the days invited guests can walk into the world of Esquire, with real-life access to the leading voices in style, sport, tech, travel, food and film.
