Bremont pays homage to the legendary 1963 Jaguar Lightweight E-Type with its new MKII Chronograph

If you remember, back in 2014 Jaguar partnered with watchmaker Bremont to create a limited edition watch that commemorated the marquee’s E-Type continuation series. Only six of the watches were made and offered to the owners of those $1.5 million E-Types. The two brands have once again come together to introduce the new MKII Chronograph timepiece which takes its inspiration from the Jaguar Lightweight E-Type. As far as the changes in the new model are concerned, it features a redesigned internal tachymeter dial ring whose purpose is to measure speed along with the detailing of timepiece which is inspired by two Lightweights that competed in the 12 Hours of Sebring.

The MKII Chronograph comes in a 43-millimeter polished stainless steel case with a BE-50AE automatic movement that takes care of the chronograph. The sapphire crystal case back showcases the mechanism that takes design cues from the E-type with an automatic “steering wheel” winding weight. The Jaguar logo is integrated above the six o’clock position and the hour markings mirror the style of the E-Type’s gauge numerals. A red line on the 60-minute counter pays tribute to the first-generation E-Type’s Smiths-branded rev counter. The Bremont MKII Chronograph is available for sale with a price-tag of €5,295 (approx. $5580).
