  • Catalogue Essay

    Based in Henley-on-Thames, Oxfordshire, Bremont is an up-and-coming British manufacturer specializing in aviation-themed timepieces. The model of the present lot, “Wright Flyer”, is named after the airplane of the same name. On December 17, 1903, in a town called Kitty Hawk in North Carolina, Wilbur and Orville Wright, also known as the Wright Brothers, presented the world the very first powered, heavier-than-air aircraft – the Wright Flyer. On that day, the Wright Brothers flew the Wright Flyer four times in total.

    Adding an element of intrigue, the Bremont Wright Flyer Limited Edition contains a piece of fabric from the section that covered the lower left wing of the original 100-year-old Wright Flyer, which the Smithsonian Institution describes as "the first powered, heavier-than-air machine to achieve controlled, sustained flight with a pilot aboard". With only 300 pieces produced in stainless steel, this is a great opportunity to own an example of this highly charismatic limited edition model.
