Bremont Extends Its Motorsport Collection With The Introduction Of The Jaguar C-Type

In 1948 Jaguar launched its first post-war sports car at The London Motor Show, the Jaguar XK120. Inspired by its design, the XK120 C was later introduced in 1951, which became widely known as the Jaguar C-type for 'Competition' and renowned as pioneering race car exuding elegance and sophistication. The car was a huge success and unbeatable on the track due to is curvy aerodynamic aluminium bodywork, sophisticated dual-overhead cam 3.4 litre straight six-engine culminating in winning the 1951 and 1953 celebrated 24 hours Le Mans Race and setting a new lap record in the process. The C-type was the first ever race car to use pioneering disc brake technology.

Bremont is honoured to celebrate this icon of British racing with the introduction of the Bremont Jaguar C-type, combining Bremont's design aesthetic with the C-types's signature simplicity and elegance. Originally designed by British Jaguar car designer, aerodynamicist and artist Malcolm Sawyer, the C-type was famed for its exceptionally fluid shape, and as with previous Bremont x Jaguar designs, the 43mm case of the Bremont Jaguar C-type draws inspiration from the car itself. The new model joins Bremont's esteemed collection of Jaguar watches, a series of notable piece paying homage to both the E-type and D-type respectively. The Bremont Jaguar collection beautifully celebrates these important parts of automotive history, ensuring the legacy and spirit of these legendary cars continues.

An anodised aluminium bezel directly references the original aluminium bodywork and the silver-plated multi-level sunburst dial design, with brushed dial ring, features the heritage Jaguar logo, black gloss numerals and white sub dials. The red accent on the 9 hour sub dial draws inspiration from the original Smiths gauges from the C-type complemented by the chronograph hand inspired by the needle seen on the original C-type tachometer. Chronograph and tachymeter functions it will perfectly time that running mile.

The steel Trip-Tick® watch case is constructed from circular brushed stainless steel with polished bevels on the lugs and a winding crown which is engraved with the original Jaguar heritage Dunlop tyre tread, iconic to Bremont's jaguar range of watches. Turning the watch over reveals a stainless steel closed case back featuring decorative coin depicting the Jaguar 'Growler' hood badge. A contrasting tan leather racing strap continues the vintage inspired design.

Bremont Co-Founder Giles English comments, "The C-type is one of the most beautiful racing cars ever produced and is high up on my lists of cars that I would most like to own, along with the D-type. We have enjoyed a special relationship with Jaguar over the past 14 years, working with them on various concept car clocks, supplying clocks for the Queen's private fleet of Jaguars, as well as developing a wonderful series of watch designs honouring some of their most celebrated cars. The C-type is a wonderful addition to the range."
