The Bremont Jaguar MKIII is the latest result of the collaboration between Jaguar and Bremont. It is a tribute to the famous Jaguar E-type. Launched in 1961 it was the fastest in series produced car at that time. No one other than Enzo Ferrari described the E-type as the most beautiful car ever. For the British watch maker Bremont the Jaguar E-type is the inspiration for their Jaguar models, with the Bremont Jaguar MKIII as their latest flagship.

The Bremont Jaguar MKIII is more basic


The Bremont Jaguar MKIII has a more basic design than the MKI (with separated second counter) and MKII (with separated second counter and with chronograph) which Bremont previously developed. The case is made of polished steel and it has a diameter of 43 millimeters; slightly thinner than the MKI and MKII.

The design of the black dial is inspired by the design of the tachometer of the Jaguar E-type. The red area on the dial is a reference to it: it shows the rev limits in the E-type. Inside you will find the BE-36AE caliber developed by Bremont. This movement has a power reserve of 38 hours.

The crown has the same tire profile as the Dunlop tires that came with the original Jaguar E-type

The crown is very special; it has a tire profile in the plane of rotation – the same as the Dunlop tires that came with the original Jaguar E-type. The tip of the crown has the original Jaguar logo. The strap of the Bremont Jaguar MKIII is made of calfskin in a dark blue color. It is also perforated to give it a racy appearance.
