Introducing the Bremont Stephen Hawking Collection
An amazing timepiece for an amazing man
We've had watches for athletes and actors but you don't often find watches dedicated to renowned scientists. British watch manufacturer Bremont have thought of that, blissfully, and they're introducing the Stephen Hawking Limited Edition Collection, dedicated to English physicist and cosmologist Stephen Hawking, one of the most influential scientists of our time. A remarkable collection comprised of four pieces, designed to honour the memory of a remarkable individual.
Nick English, co-founder of Bremont, said “Professor Stephen Hawking was arguably one of the most eminent scientists of the last hundred years. We wanted to celebrate this incredible man’s life and his fascinating relationship with time".
The Bremont Hawking Limited Edition watch features retrograde seconds hand and date, located at the 6 and 12 o'clock respectively, and the timepiece also encapsulates a variety of cosmological references on the case back. There are four wooden discs and a meteorite insert at the centre of the case back, there's an etching of stars from the night sky in Oxford on January 8, 1942, the date that Hawking was born.
The serial number of the watch is also engraved on the case back together with Hawking's radiation temperature equation.
The collection consists of four watches, three men's model and a women's model, powered by Bremont BE-33AE movement (men's) and BE-92Av (women's) both with a 42-hour power reseve. Only 388 stainless steel models will be produced (black dial), along with 88 pieces in rose gold with black dial, 88 white gold with blue dial and 88 pieces of the stainless steel women's model.
The men's version measures 41 mm whereas the ladies model measures 34 mm in diameter, coming in with diamonds inset into the bezel as well as the index markers on the dial.
