The new launch is the latest in more than a decade long partnership between Bremont and Martin-Baker, a British manufacturer of ejection seats and aviation-related safety equipment.
Starting in 2009, the unique partnership gave birth to a new generation of pilot’s watch, the Bremont MB, a collection which remains to this day the only mechanical timepieces to have undergone and withstood the rigours of live ejection seat launches.
This summer the collaboration continues with the introduction of the MB Savanna.
Appreciating that for a pilot weight means everything, Bremont is offering for the first time the MB in Grade 5 Titanium.
The tactile matt effect across the 43mm lightweight Special Edition is a choice influenced by both aesthetics and practicality.
The MB Savanna incorporates an array of updated design elements including an anti-reflective tactical protective case surface treatment, advanced ruthenium plated skeletonised rotor and a new colour palette fit for military purpose and inspired by the harsh Savanna environment and military camouflage colours.
The mono-colour palette extends to the rubber strap, chosen for its durability and suitability for all conditions.
True to the MB range, the Savanna model features the distinctive knurled effect on the barrel and crowns inspired by components on the ejection seats themselves
Bremont’s co-founder Nick English, commented: “The MB Savanna is an eye-catching piece of military candy and a fitting tribute to arguably the most successful pilot’s watch in the market used extensively by real military squadrons.
“Following the success of our MB collaboration we wanted to create a more lightweight model and put it through the full spectrum of MB testing to coincide with the development of the new MB seat programme – ensuring the next generation of the Bremont MB is more robust than ever.”
Adding: “Along with the extensive testing done in the UK, we’re proud to say all case finishing and manufacture has also been done in the UK.”
