To celebrate the release of the new replica Bremont Jaguar D model, we carefully studied the design of the chronograph and the cars that inspired it.
Jaguar Classic recently restarted production of the iconic 1950s Model D in Coventry, 64 years after the first prototypes were manufactured. Jaguar planned to build 100 D models in 1955, but only 75 were completed. Jaguar Classic (Jaguar Classic) now achieves the company’s original ambitions by building 25 brand new sports cars that meet the requirements of the period.
The Model D that won the three Le Mans Grand Prix is the third Continuation model launched by Jaguar Classic. It had previously completed six missing light E models in 2014-15 and built nine XKSS in 2017-18. chronowatchmall.com
To celebrate this British racing scene and as an extension of Bremen ’s previous collaboration with Jaguar (the earliest collaboration dates back to 2014), the British watchmaker designed a mechanical chronograph , Bringing the wearer back to the golden age of motorsport.
Nick English, co-founder of Bremont, said: “The Jaguar D is a truly iconic racing car that is as eye-catching today as it was when it was first produced. With its strong engineering skills, it has the most difficult racing competition in the world. The impressive results, which we advocated at fake Bremont. It is indeed very special to continue to preserve its legacy by completing the original planned production, and we are happy to celebrate the launch of our new limited edition. “
Since the D model is classified as a 300 hp car, the new timepiece will be limited to 300. The blue double dial dual chronograph (inspired by the pantone of the Ecurie Ecosse Jaguar racing team) has been brushed with a nickel small dial and Tachymeter dial ring, and its chronograph movement is mounted on a 43 mm satin polished three-piece Trip Tick case. The large-scale exhibition sapphire bottom cover displays the beautifully completed mechanical mechanical BE-50AE movement and the extremely refined Jaguar steering wheel inspired rotor. The crown of the watch fake is engraved with the original Dunlop tire tread, and the end enamel of the inherited Jaguar logo is exquisite.
Ian Callum, Jaguar ’s design director and British design icon, said: “The Bremont D chronograph was inspired by one of the most striking and beautiful sports cars in history. This is Jaguar A true embodiment of the racing tradition. Today is as exciting as the 1950s, and its story is constantly told. This iconic car deserves a timepiece. The limited edition perfectly reflects the mechanical beauty of the D type and is clever It ’s embellished with the performance of the car – the real driver ’s companion. “
The Type D is powered by a six-cylinder XK engine and won the Le Mans 24 Hours Championship three times between 1955 and 1957. The hard work of Jaguar Classic experts and the exclusive access to Jaguar ’s original engineering drawings and records ensure that each new Type D will follow the true specifications set by competition manager Lofty England and its engineers in the 1950s Manufacturing. D type customers can choose the Shortnose of 1955 or Longnose of 1956. Although the Type D shares many of the mechanical components of its Type C predecessor, it has an innovative one-piece structure and the most advanced aerodynamic characteristics designed by aviation engineers, including its vertical fins or stabilizers.
