EACH SWISSPL WATCH IS MECHANICAL AND HANDCRAFTED IN AMERICA

Swiss Components with American Craftsmanship designed to Tell Your Story.

Even "stock designs" feature customized caseback engravings and personalization details.
WE OFFER A 2 YEAR WARRANTY ON EACH SWISSPL TIMEPIECE WE MANUFACTURE

SwissPL produces custom watches made to order, crafted for its wearer, each as unique as the owner itself. Our mechanical timepieces are assembled per strict Swiss standards and each undergo in-depth quality control and precision timing tests. We offer a full 2 year warranty on our timepieces.
SECURE DELIVERY WITH INSURED SERVICE

Every timepiece we produce and ship, gets sent securely packaged in bubble wrap with the watch inside its own heat-sealed enclosure bag to protect against the elements, static charge and finger prints.

Description

At a time of austerity, one American defied convention to build the largest aircraft in the world. Famously known as the ‘Spruce Goose’, the H-4 Hercules and Howard Hughes’ genius was defined by one minute. One minute of flight on 2nd November 1947. In that time Howard Hughes’ vision for the greatest aircraft ever built was vindicated. It’s fitting therefore that the aircraft is being commemorated by a timepiece of this stature.

A sublime fusion of micro-engineering, watch design and aviation history, the Bremont H-4 Hercules Limited Edition chronometer is limited to only 300 Stainless Steel, 75 Rose Gold and 75 Platinum pieces. It salutes this iconic flying boat of the 1940s and contains original birchwood from the fuselage of this iconic silver flying boat. A percentage of the proceeds from each limited edition will go towards to preservation of the aircraft at the Evergreen Aviation Space Museum in McMinnville, Oregon, USA.

Movement

The 25 jewel Bremont BWC/02 movement is based on the original proprietary automatic BWC/01 calibre built in partnership with movement house, La Joux Perret, and is housed in a beautifully finished 43mm case. The new slate grey coloured BWC/02 movement has GMT functionality, along with hours, minutes, a smaller non-hacking seconds hand at 9 o’clock and the date at 6 o’clock. Each Bremont H-4 Hercules Limited Edition rotor is constructed using original birch wood from the H-4 Hercules fuselage, which has been carefully incorporated into each propeller blade.

Technical Details:
Bremont BWC/02 automatic with 25 jewels, Glucydur balance, Nivarox CT balance spring, Highly efficient double reverser bi-directional winding mechanism to achieve 28,800bph and 50+ hour power reserve. Galvanised NAC (Nickel Anthracite Coating) balance cock, barrel bridge and train bridge.

Handcrafted In America

Much like the ‘Spruce Goose’, the new Bremont Limited Edition timepiece has been crafted as much as manufactured and each is carefully hand-built and tested at Bremont’s state-of-the-art workshops in Henley-on-Thames, UK. The limited edition bridle leather packaging, which also incorporates original aileron fabric from the aircraft that flew on the 2nd November 1947, is beautifully designed and manufactured in England.

Your SwissPL watch shipping package is assembled with the utmost of care in each detail. The watch is secured inside a heat-sealed enclosure bag, so your hands are the first to touch your new watch.

Inside the SwissPL Owner’s Pack you will find a velvet cloth watch pouch [for when you send your watch in for servicing]; a watch spring bar link removal tool [in case you want to swap the leather strap for the metal bracelet yourself].
