Likely inspired by the idea of "if one is good then two is better," Bremont wants to make the most of this co-operation by releasing a watch dedicated to this partnership. A limited edition of 12 pieces in polished steel, the watch will be based on the 43 millimeter wide ALT1-C Classic watch, powered by the BE-50AE, ETA 7750-based movement. It will also feature a piece of oak cask used in the maturation of whiskies for Chivas Regal, along with the signature of James and John Chivas etched on the rotor. In essence, we are looking at a watch co-operation between a watch brand and a whiskey maker, spiced up with the more unique idea of a watch design-inspired gift tin.
While one indicator tells you how much power (out of a total of about 39 hours) is left in the mainspring barrel to power the watch, the winding efficiency indicator tells you how efficiently you have been adding power to the movement over time. Basically, the more active you are, the more you are helping to wind the watch. Active people will see the hand in the green. Inactive people whose wrist motion activity is not enough to put power into the movement will see the hands in or closer to the red region of the dial. Thus, because it is essentially measuring the motion of your wrist, it measures an element of the wearer's physical activity.Read more ›
