With design inspiration taken from the Royal Air Force’s 100 Squadron—the first UK military division formed for night bombing, back in 1917—Bremont’s U-2/51-JET features the brand’s trademarked “51” lume, heat treated steel blued hands and a hardened, stainless steel DLC Trip-Tick case. On there back there’s an exhibition caseback revealing the modified calibre 11 ½”’ BE-36AE automatic chronometer inside. It’s a striking new timepiece from the English brand and it happens to be durable, too.
Built in Detroit from a powder-coated, die-cast zinc casing and a stamped aluminum dial, this limited edition Runwell Wall Clock was conceived of by two CH favorites in the time-keeping design industry: George Bamford and Shinola. Bamford and Shinola’s team conceptualized the 14-inch product together—and Bamford’s signature light-blue pops against the clock’s dynamic gray-scale coloration. The clock can be hung or rested upon the included black-lacquered American oak stand.

Since their launch in 2010, Ressence—designer Benoît Mintiens’s groundbreaking watch brand—has continued to release pieces that defy the ordinary, employing a unique disc-based mechanical system and a minimal, geometric aesthetic to match.

Our personal favorite, the Type 1 MRP in grade-five titanium features a night-blue metallic dial. A 42mm case holds the brand’s proprietary ROCS 1 module, which powers the timepiece. Only 12 of these watches will be produced.

As time passes—with the piece offering more than 35 days running time before needing to be wound—the mouth changes and the lips part. This iteration (there’s also an all-black version) is limited to 50 pieces.
