Bremont makes 300 D-type chronographs in partnership with Jaguar Classic

Jaguar and Bremont have joined forced to mark re-starting production of the iconic 1950s D-type race car.

The project to start making D-types again is being run by Coventry-based Jaguar Classic, which unearthed 25 numbered chassis for D-types from 1955 that were never built into complete cars.

Those 25 cars are being painstakingly built to modern regulatory standards but will look like perfectly period-correct sports cars.

Bremont, which has been working with Jaguar for almost a decade, is making 300 limited edition mechanical chronographs that will be known as the Bremont D-type timepiece.

 

 

 

The 43mm watches come in a satin-finished steel case with a blue dial with two brushed nickel sub dials and a tachymeter ring.

The sapphire case back shows the BE-50AE movement that has a rotor designed to look like a classic Jaguar steering wheel. The watch crown has the original Dunlop tyre tread etched into it with the heritage Jaguar logo finished in enamel on its end.

Each of the 300 pieces comes in packaging personally signed by legendary Jaguar design director Ian Callum.
