Once upon a time (50 years ago, give or take) Concorde soared through our skies, faster than a rifle bullet enabling passengers to travel with the mile-high club at twice the speed of sound. Bremont being the king of the airways when it comes to watches, has launched its Supersonic timepiece. What a better way to celebrate the beautiful Aircrafts Anniversary of 50 than to design a watch after her. The luxury Bremont piece has been designed incorporating parts from the jet itself- and yes it will go down in history just like the iconic Concorde. Strap in and take to the skies with this wonderful piece of machinery, you won’t look back on this investment. With three amazing materials in which you can buy the watch and three luxury coloured straps to choose from, there really isn’t much more to say.
