Bremont America’s Cup Collection - America’s Cup Series & Oracle Team USA Series

In May 2015, Bremont announced a partnership with the America’s Cup Event Authority and ORACLE TEAM USA to be the Official Timing Partner of the 35th America’s Cup and ORACLE TEAM USA. As the first official British timing partner to the legendary America’s Cup, Bremont has launched a very exciting project to produce a special edition series of timepieces to celebrate its involvement.
The precision engineering of modern America’s Cup boats provides a genuine correlation to Bremont’s precision manufacturing of luxury timepieces.

America’s Cup Collection: America’s Cup Series
The America’s Cup Series is a classic watch collection befitting the history of the Cup and Bremont has launched two Special Edition watches, the Bremont AC I and AC II. These models have been inspired by the legendry J-Class yachts of the 30s, both classic and beautiful. Carrying the ‘London’ mark on the dial, all of the watches are built in the UK using the highest quality components. The watches are also delivered in Bremont’s English made America’s Cup leather wallets.
Bremont AC I
The Bremont AC I was inspired by the simple lines of the J-Class yacht with its classic and understated design; it incorporates sea blue steel hands and a fine ivory white opaline dial embossed with outlines of the Cup to give subtle pattern and depth to the face of the watch.
Taking its design reference from the SOLO range, this is the first time Bremont has introduced a polished steel version. The AC I is chronometer rated with a top execution automatic movement, an obvious choice for anyone interested in the allure of mechanical watches.
The movement and robust anti-shock movement mount can be viewed through the sapphire crystal exhibition case back. The hand polished case is water resistant to 100m and comes on a blue Temple Island rubber strap.

Bremont AC II
In keeping with the style of the AC I, the AC II is a bicompact chronograph made from rose gold inspired by the iconic polished ALT1-C.
The beautifully shaped blue steel hands set against the fine ivory white opaline dial once again capture the timeless elegance of the J-Class yachts; the AC II is an archetypal watch that resonates well with the history of the America’s Cup.
Bremont has incorporated the subtle motif of the Auld Mug outline on the two sub-dials offering a wonderfully refined pattern to the face of the watch. Integrating an impeccably modified, chronometer rated, Valjoux 7750-SO BI AC movement that can be seen through the exhibition case back, the AC II exemplifies fine watchmaking at its best.

America’s Cup Collection: Oracle Team USA Series
In partnering with ORACLE TEAM USA, the current defenders of the America’s Cup, Bremont has a very special and unique opportunity to work with them to create a practical and beautifully engineered collection of sailing watches, setting a new standard in technical innovation, precision and durability.
BREMONT ORACLE I
The Bremont Oracle I is a purpose built timepiece that is constructed to be used on the water, or in the water, as a reliable piece of equipment for any seafarer. The design has very much evolved from the Supermarine range that is used by divers and military around the world demonstrating its durability and robustness.
Incorporating the ORACLE TEAM USA branding on the new off white dial together with applied index numbering has produced a modern yet classical sailing watch. The red tipped minute hand and beautifully cast case back are also clear indications that this is a team associated watch. The watch is designed with a sapphire crystal uni-directional rotating bezel to give a clean and distinguished look.
The Oracle I is built using a highly technical 500m water resistant case, incorporating the Bremont anti-shock movement mount and anti-magnetic Faraday cage which encases the beautifully finished, chronometer tested, BE-36AE movement. Each case incorporates an automatic helium valve.
