Bremont Jaguar MKIII - Ref. BJ-III/BK
The MKIII is the most pared back timepiece in the range yet still very much in keeping with the design of the MKI and MKII. The MKIII by comparison has a slightly slimmer 43mm polished steel case; the black tachometer-inspired dial design features the date window at the six o'clock position and carries the Jaguar heritage logo right above it. Its hour markings are reminiscent of the numerals found on E-Type instruments and the dial features a distinctive ëred lineí quadrant between three and four oíclock also paying homage to the E-Type is tachometer.
As with the other models in this range the iconic winding crown harks back to the Lightweight E-Type using the same original Dunlop tyre tread, topped with the Jaguar heritage logo to match that of the dial. Turning the MKIII over reveals further automotive imagery in the form of its closed case back, inspired by wheel centre detailing from the E-Type. The 43mm stainless steel case - which is fitted with a double-domed crystal to enhance the vintage appearance of the watch - is made entirely in the UK by Bremont using its renowned, three-part Trip-Tick® technology that also incorporates Bremont's anti- shock movement mount technology.
