Let’s explore the details of this timepiece.
New: Bremont WR-45 Limited Edition in partnership with Williams Racing
The Case and Dial
The WR-45 features a new case design within the Williams Racing range, retaining its tachymeter function for precise timing. The 3-piece Trip-Tick® case construction, treated with DLC (Diamond-Like Carbon), ensures durability and a visually appealing black appearance. The dial adopts a black finish, complemented by white indexes and sub-dials with touches of electric blue, reflecting the Williams Racing color palette.
At 9 o’clock, a small white seconds dial with an electric blue hand adds visual interest, accompanied by a small 30-minute chronograph dial at 3 o’clock and a 12-hour counter at 6 o’clock. Blue emission lume-filled indexes, minute and hour hands, along with a red-framed triangular 12-hour marker on the dial ring, pay tribute to vintage rally timers. The exhibition case back reveals the movement and a custom rotor inspired by Williams Racing car rims, featuring the team’s logo.
Powering the WR-45 LIMITED EDITION is the modified Calibre 13 1/4’’’ BE-53AV. This precise movement incorporates 27 jewels, a Glucydur balance wheel, an Anachron balance spring, and a Nivaflex mainspring. Operating at a frequency of 28,800 beats per hour (4Hz), it provides a generous 56-hour power reserve. The rotor, adorned with design elements inspired by Williams Racing, adds a unique touch to the timepiece.
The WR-45 showcases the collaboration between Bremont and Williams Racing. The timepiece captures the essence of contemporary motorsport, combining style, durability, and precision. With its unique design elements, meticulous attention to detail, and limited production, the WR-45 appeals to motorsport enthusiasts and watch lovers looking for an F1 themed wristwatch.
