Bremont Comet DH-88 Limited Edition Watch

The cherry red, twin-engine de Havilland Comet "Grosvenor House" was purpose-built for the MacRobertson race using mostly wood for the body and supports, and a pair of six-cylinder, 230 horsepower engines for propulsion. Things are scaled back a bit for the Bremont Comet DH-88, which is powered by Bremont’s BE-54AE movement – a COSC-certified automatic caliber based on the ETA 7750 that exhibits some neat modifications like red screws, a Glucydur balance, Anachron balance spring, and Nivaflex 1 mainspring. Granted, Bremont has deployed a more pared-down version of this movement in other parts of its collection, like in the eerily similar (albeit fully modern) ALT1-ZT/51 GMT Chronograph . But unlike the ALT1, the Bremont Comet DH-88’s bright red rotor has been fitted with a small sampling of spruce plywood sourced from the undercarriage of the original race-winning aircraft.
