Review: Bremont – Jaguar MKIWritten by Alvin Wong
A quintessentially British brand, Bremont seeks out collaborations with likeminded marques bearing the same lineage.
Here, it teams up with famed automobile company Jaguar, and gets off the starting blocks with two watches inspired by the iconic E-Type. We are sold by the automatic model (the other’s a chronograph), which distills the ride’s dashboard aesthetics on the dial in a quirky, vintage-y way that doesn’t feel forced or overwrought. Of special interest is the stainless steel case, constructed with Bremont’s proprietary ‘Trip-Trick’ technology that ensures up to seven times hardiness compared to a standard steel case.
Price: S$15,600 (incld GST)
Alvin promises not to be a douche when talking about watches. He may have scoured the Basel and Geneva watch fairs for the past 15 years, and played an instrumental role to the growth of Singapore's pioneering horological and men's lifestyle publications, but the intrepid scribe seeks to learn something new with each story he writes.
