The AIRCO model is named after the ‘Aircraft Manufacturing Company Limited’, one of the first British military aircraft manufacturers. The watches are constructed using Bremont’s technical three piece ‘Trip-Tick®’ cases which are produced at the company’s facilities in the UK, housing the smaller but beautifully finished chronometer rated BE-92AE movement. The AIRCO MACH 1 boasts a satin finished case, a military inspired black dial offset with a sweeping orange second hand, and comes on a vintage brown calf leather strap.

Bremont is an award-winning British company producing beautifully engineered chronometers at their headquarters in Henly on Thames, England. Time began for Bremont in 2002, when they embarked on a journey to make masterfully crafted pilot’s watches of exceptional quality. Inspired by a love of flying historic aircraft and a passion for watches and all things mechanical, Bremont’s timepieces have been tested beyond the normal call of duty.
Bremont has manufactured watches for over 400 different military units around the world and works with some of the best British engineering companies: Martin-Baker, Rolls-Royce Aerospace, and Jaguar, to name a few. Their watches are the only watches to have ever gone through a live ejection testing programme! Immensely precise, reliable, and durable, Bremont’s watches are either COSC or ISO chronometer rated and are hand-built in limited numbers.
