British watchmaker, Bremont, pays homage to the legendary Jaguar C-type with the launch of the Bremont Jaguar C-type watch. This remarkable timepiece celebrates the 70th anniversary of the historic 1953 Le Mans race, where the Jaguar C-type secured a remarkable first, second, and fourth place. The watch captures the essence of the iconic race-winner’s aluminum chassis while beautifully incorporating the innovation and elegance of the original 1951 design.
Designed by Malcolm Sawyer, a distinguished British Jaguar car designer, aerodynamicist, and artist, the Bremont Jaguar C-type draws inspiration from the car’s classic shape and design elements. The monochrome 43mm chronograph is a contemporary rendition of this motoring classic and an exciting addition to Bremont’s Motorsport Collection.
Crafted with precision, the watch features a steel Trip-Tick® case construction, ensuring durability. The scratch-resistant PVD-treated case middle and the bi-directional rotating tachymeter ring with a brushed finish pay tribute to the C-type’s famous disc brake, a pioneering technology that revolutionized racing cars.
With a 43mm 3-piece Trip-Tick® case construction, this timepiece is equipped with the modified caliber 13 1/4’’’ BE-50AV movement. The caseback, resembling a decorative coin, is made of stainless steel and engraved with the Jaguar C-type hood badge, adding a touch of sophistication.
The Bremont Jaguar C-type watch is a true masterpiece that captures the spirit of motorsport and timeless elegance. Priced at $6,495, this exquisite timepiece is a must-have for automotive enthusiasts and watch collectors alike.
