Specification

BB247-SS/BK

Modified calibre 13 1/4” BE-50AE automatic chronometer with 42 hour power reserve. Custom 465® Stainless Steel Bremont Trip-Tick® case construction. Water resistant to 10 ATM, 100 metres. Seattle (organic polymer) strap and additional strap. Inspired by Boeing’s progressive twin-engined Model 247 airliner from the 1930s, Bremont’s unique chronograph has two sub-dials that reflect the aircraft’s radial engines. Like the Model 1 timepiece, the case is manufactured from Custom 465® Stainless Steel. The Bremont Trip-Tick® case construction incorporates a screw down crown and chrono-pushers. The Model 247 also features an exhibition sapphire crystal case back through which the automatic chronometer movement can be seen. By 1933 aircraft design had moved forward rapidly, with Boeing at the forefront of innovation. The twin-engined Boeing Model 247 was a major advance in passenger air travel. Focused on both safety and speed, it was the first twin airliner able to fly on one engine only, and the airframe incorporated revolutionary design features like autopilot, control surface trim tabs and de-icing capability. The Model 247 set a new trans-continental speed record, transiting a phenomenal eight hours faster than any previous aeroplane. Passengers could travel non-stop across the US continent for the very first time. Used by both civilian and military operators, the Model 247 set the standard for basic airline design for the next decade.
