Wallpaper magazine's August Handmade section had a few watches in it that are cool. I previously wrote about the Bell & Ross BR01 Radar variation here
. England's Bremont
also offered an interesting custom watch for the design magazine's spread. They took the look of their Martin Baker and U-2 watches and make a one-of-a-kind Bremont Pocket Watch
. Using the same size case as the wrist watch, the pocket watch features a loop for a chain and repositioned crowns (one for winding and the time, and another crown for the internal rotating bezel. Note that this image is of the watch while still in production. The version in the magazine had the inner aluminum section of the watch in bright orange like the Bremont Martin Baker timepieces. The rest of the watch is in steel.
The back of the watch is a compass, designed by Bremont - and makes sense given the aviation theme of the timepiece. Bremont needed to specially engineer the case so that the magnetic compass did not interfere with the watch movement (magnetism can really harm accuracy). Inside the watch is base Swiss ETA 2836 automatic movement. As a design study, the Bremont Pocket Watch is pretty cool, but it actually would make sense in certain situation were wearing a watch might not be feasible. Will Bremont make more of these and offer any to the public? They just might if demand is high enough.
