The Bremont U2/T is a limited edition fake watches produced by Bremont especially for the American retailer Timeless Luxury Watches based in Texas. Limited edition watches made exclusively for retailers is becoming more and more popular these days, even if it is a practice that has heritage going back many (many) years ago. It used to be the fact that retailer names actually were the name on the dial, and the company that manufactured the watches didn’t have any branding on the watch at all, or in relatively secret spots such as on the movement.
Most “exclusive” watches produced by a brand for a specific retailers aren’t really that special. They offer some color or dial differences, but tend to only offer modest levels of exclusivity such that a consumer would feel they are particularly special compared to the stock version of that watch. In most instances, retailer-exclusive watches are for the benefit of the retailer, so that they feel as though they have something special and original to offer to their customers.
Once in a while, a limited edition watch made for a retailer really catches my eye, and I love the practice of doing this in general. Retailers not only have a regular interaction with customers and know what sells, but more importantly understand their own customers as well as their own tastes. So the best case scenario for a limited edition watch made exclusively for a retailer is that the watch is more desirable or sellable than stock models.
The Bremont U2/T replica watches(“T” for “Timeless”) isn’t per se more or less sellable than stock U2 models, but it most certainly feels different (and attractive). For this reason I was particularly interested in this Bremont product when Timeless Luxury Watches first announced it on aBlogtoWatch about a year ago at the time of writing. I got hooked on the watch myself, and now offer a follow-up review based on this really handsome and interesting Bremont watch. I think the timepiece also serves as a testament of the appeal of the brand – insofar that a retailer that carries the brand is excited enough by what they do to order a customized product to their specific standards.
Much of the durability is thanks to the “Trip-Tick” case Bremont fake watches which is designed to be shock-resistant. Inside the watch is a special anti-shock and vibration mount for the movement. This is designed to absorb shock that would otherwise harm the relatively-speaking delicate mechanical movement inside of the watch case. The case also makes use of a soft iron Faraday cage shield to protect the movement from magnetism. While the U-2 watch collection is technically distinct from the Martin Baker collection, they share the same case and movement, have the same price, and the U-2 watches do in fact have Martin Baker branding on the back of the case. So to me, the Bremont U2 and Martin Baker watches are one in the same.
