Bremont H-4 Hercules Steel$16,995 AUD

DescriptionDescription

At a time of austerity, one American defied convention to build the largest aircraft in the world. Famously known as the ‘Spruce Goose’, the H-4 Hercules and Howard Hughes’ genius was defined by one minute. One minute of flight on 2nd November 1947. In that time Howard Hughes’ vision for the greatest aircraft ever built was vindicated. It’s fitting therefore that the aircraft is being commemorated by a timepiece of this stature.

A sublime fusion of micro-engineering, watch design and aviation history, the Bremont H-4 Hercules Limited Edition chronometer is limited to only 300 Stainless Steel, 75 Rose Gold and 75 Platinum pieces. It salutes this iconic flying boat of the 1940s and contains original birchwood from the fuselage of this iconic silver flying boat. A percentage of the proceeds from each limited edition will go towards to preservation of the aircraft at the Evergreen Aviation & Space Museum in McMinnville, Oregon, USA.

MOVEMENT
The 25 jewel Bremont BWC/02 movement is based on the original proprietary automatic BWC/01 calibre built in partnership with movement house, La Joux Perret, and is housed in a beautifully finished 43mm case. The new slate grey coloured BWC/02 movement has GMT functionality, along with hours, minutes, a smaller non-hacking seconds hand at 9 o’clock and the date at 6 o’clock. Each Bremont H-4 Hercules Limited Edition rotor is constructed using original birch wood from the H-4 Hercules fuselage, which has been carefully incorporated into each propeller blade.

TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS
Bremont BWC/02 automatic with 25 jewels, Glucydur balance, Nivarox CT balance spring, Highly efficient double reverser bi-directional winding mechanism to achieve 28,800bph and 50+ hour power reserve. Galvanised NAC (Nickel Anthracite Coating) balance cock, barrel bridge and train bridge.
