Inspired by the original Test Instrument, the Bremont Martin Baker Viper limited edition is crafted from grade 5 titanium and anodized aluminum, this lightweight model is based on a concept test instrument watch that was developed to put Bremont’s ENG300 Series movement through the rigorous Martin-Baker fighter jet ejection seat testing programme. It features a 43.5mm Trip-Tick® case construction with patented anti-shock movement technology. Its Bremont manufactured ENG352 calibre movement, which is tested to the H1 Timing Standard, features a 65-hour power reserve and comes with an extended warranty of five years upon registration.
The Test Instrument subjected the ENG300 Series movement to the following challenges:
live ejection testing
zoom temperature climb testing
extreme temperature endurance
high altitude testing
salt fog testing
To this end, the MB Viper features a patented rubberized anti-shock movement mount which protects the movement from significant shocks and jolts, while the 43.5mm matte DLC grade 5 titanium case employs a protective carbon coating and an anti-reflective, scratch resistant sapphire crystal.
The vibrant orange anodized aluminum case middle is secured with four corner Torx® screws and the hour markers and tips of the chevron-decorated hands are treated with Super-LumiNova.
