Bremont just released a fresh version of the popular U-2, now with a blue call. That makes it sound good too... U-2 Blue. Previously only available which has a black dial in a dark-colored DLC-coated stainless steel case, today all sold out, the new U-2 comes in stainless steel with a azure dial and blue barrel or clip.
Additionally , often the officially named new U-2/BL is the first U-2 to be able to feature a monitor back protect as standard. This is one of many features reminiscent of its aunt, the MB-II. There is also a girl middle case barrel along with a hardened stainless steel Trip-Tick circumstance. As explained in our considerable review of Supermarine 500, the actual hardened steel used by Bremont has a Vickers hardness involving 2000. This is about eight times harder than normal stainless steel used for the case.
The U-2's DNA is firmly seated in the Bremont Military Staff Watch, developed in conjunction with the tour's largest manufacturer of disposition seats, Martin-Baker; the MB-I (only for those who actually have to utilize an ejection seat) ) and MB-II (publicly available). The U-2 series has been originally released in 2010. The particular U-2 is equipped with an observatory grade movement and capabilities most of MB's premium factors, including: shock-resistant rubber athletics mount; designed to withstand MB's ejection seat program, however added features such as has had the watch to 100, 000 feet and -50 certifications Celsius test.
A nice detail is the anti-reflective coating on the sapphire very that hardens to a couple of, 000 Vickers, just like the steel case. Usually an anti-reflective coating, applied on the outside of the particular crystal, scratches easily, although not on this Bremont!
