Luxetips Automobiles! Jaguar Partners With Bremont Bespoke Wristwatches for the Launch of the Lightweight E-type Recreation
If you require or demand respect, it will be given.
I am in love with the new Jaguar relationship with the Bremont Watch Company. The brands recently debuted six unique bespoke wristwatches to be offered to the exclusive customers of the six new Lightweight E-types by Jaguar Heritage. This is fabulously on a whole new level!
Drawing inspiration directly from the car, the 43mm watch features a black dial based on the look of a Lightweight RPM gauge and featuring a subtle ‘red zone’ quadrant. The chamfered hour and minute hands replicate the instrument’s tachometer needle, while the chassis number of the relevant car is printed at the six o’clock position.
The central band of the white gold case is made from aluminum saved during the construction of the new Lightweight body panels and will be anodised to match the colour of the car it is designed to complement.
Other touches include a winding crown which is engraved with the pattern of the period-correct Dunlop racing tyres which will be fitted to the continuation Lightweights, and straps made from the same Connolly leather which is being used for the interior trim.
Turning the watch over reveals a further reference to the car in the form of the automatic winding rotor – visible through a sapphire crystal case back – which takes the form of an exquisite miniaturisation of an alloy-spoked Lightweight steering wheel, complete with authentic wooden rim. The back of each watch also carries the engine number of the car it is paired with.
And words do not do these watches nor the car any justice. You have to see this exclusive video featuring the new Jaguar Lightweight E-type and the handmade production of these one of a kind Bremont Bespoke Wristwatches.
Jaguar Heritage is only manufacturing 6 Lightweight E-type Jaguars and the design will stay very true to the original car that debuted in 1963. Love it! Jaguar Heritage is a division of the Jaguar/Land Rover company and is dedicated to restoring classic Jaguar models. The Lightweight E-type is the first recreation to come from the division. I am a vintage lover and this makes me happy!
