BRITISH watch­maker Bre­mont has just launched the Bre­mont Su­per­sonic, its eighth his­tor­i­cal lim­ited-edi­tion time­piece, in part­ner­ship with British Air­ways to com­mem­o­rate the 50th an­niver­sary of Con­corde. The watches (lim­ited to 300 steel, 100 white gold and 100 rose gold) fea­ture alu­minium taken from the G-BOAB Con­corde, known as Al­pha Bravo, clev­erly machined into a dec­o­rated ring within the case-back de­sign. ‘Con­corde was more than just me­tal,’ en­thuses Giles English of Bre­mont. ‘She in­spired pride and emo­tion—that’s truly a rare thing’. Giles’s brother Nick adds: ‘She was a land­mark in air­craft de­sign and her in­cred­i­ble achieve­ments make her a clas­sic ex­am­ple of British engi­neer­ing at its finest.’ Con­corde flew un­til Oc­to­ber 24, 2003, but many wish she could have flown longer. Bre­mont Su­per­sonic in steel, £9,495 (0800 817 4281; www.bre­mont.com)
