The new U-2/51-JET makes its big screen debut in dark and gritty Venom
Fitting with the dark and sombre tone of the film, the new stealthy Bremont timepiece can be seen throughout adorning the wrist of Eddie Brock, played by friend of the brand, Tom Hardy. The U-2/51-JET takes design cues from some of Bremont’s military work commissioned by the RAF’s 100 squadron members to complement their Hawk T1 Jet aircraft. The 100 Squadron was the first squadron formed for night bombing back in 1917 and its stealthy appearance inspired this ‘Jet’ black timepiece complete with a black smoked glass case back.
Based on the design of the U-2 range which was originally developed for and inspired by a select number of elite military squadrons, 2018 sees the launch of the Bremont U-2/51-JET. The new timepiece incorporates a striking combination of the brand’s trademark vintage ‘51’ lume, originally found on the Limited Edition P-51, together with heat treated steel blued hands. As well as drawing inspiration from some of the past U-2 models, the U-2/51-JET adds a new dimension to the range taking fresh design cues from a military project commissioned by the RAF’s 100 Squadron to celebrate their centenary and complement their Hawk T1 Jet aircraft. The 100 Squadron was the first squadron formed for night bombing back in 1917 and its stealthy appearance led to the introduction of a new case and middle barrel colour for this watch, aptly named ‘Jet’. Turning the watch over reveals an exhibition case back showing the beautiful automatic movement through tinted black smoked glass.
