The Eka collection has been the first Flexâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;it line to hit the market and become an international success, thanks to the original flexible bracelets. Elegant, wearable and entirely made of 18 carat gold, this jewellery set represents the perfect complement to any kind of outfit. Eka Tiny combines state of the art technology and exquisite design to create a gold chain which is easily recognisable, but totally new. Bracelets, rings, earrings and necklaces of various lengths are fine and can be worn on their own or look even better when layered.

Flex’it, style and innovation Flex’it is an ever-growing family of smart fine jewellery. At the heart of the Flex’it lines is Fope’s unique and patented “roll on” mesh chain bracelets and rings, all crafted entirely in 18 carat gold and rendered fully flexible, thanks to tiny gold springs hidden between each link. Quality, elegance and comfort are paramount features of the Fope jewellery, thus the continuous research and progress which take place thanks to skilled craftsmen and cutting-edge machines.
The VendĂ´me collection features a flat mesh chain and has recently launched a new design. These white gold rondels consist in a light mark, almost a brushstroke, which give a great sense of movement to each piece of the jewellery set. Solo is a bestseller collection. Its fine round chain now introduces new rondels where the surface is shaped into two separate zones of light and give the jewellery an extremely dynamic, sparkling effect.

The Silverfope lines The Silverfope jewellery is inspired to the most iconic statement pieces that built Fopeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s success as a brand in the Seventies. Bright white in colour and naturally shiny, these jewels are made of an exclusive registered silver and palladium alloy - with the dame attention to detail as the gold collections. The available collections feature different designs and complete sets including necklace, rings, earrings and bracelets (bangles or flexible bracelets).

Fope, a Tale of Beauty Fope is an Italian fine jewellery brand founded in 1929. Its collections spun from timeless classics to the exclusive Flexâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;it lines, which feature the patented flexible gold bracelets. Every jewel is crafted under one roof in Vicenza, near Venice, and it represents an intrinsically Italian idea of style. The Fope jewellery is designed for contemporary women who love feeling elegant without showing-off, who look for quality and comfort in the luxury pieces they wear.
Fope jewellery is made in Italy. Discover more on www.fope.com
WHITE FEATHER COLLECTION Inspired by the elegant lines found in nature, White Feather distills the silhouette of the feather into its purest form. Tendrils overlap and interweave to create a sense of vibrancy and movement that works in harmony with the body. Earrings, pendants and rings evoke the buoyant, unfurling beauty of the feather while retaining a subtle strength.
SILVER COLLECTIONS Unique, exciting, inspirational: the designer silver jewellery collections from the House of Shaun Leane are defined by their innovation and striking attention to detail. Experience a level of luxury usually reserved for fine jewellery, but breathtakingly translated into pieces that explore the balance between bold signature style and delicacy of detail â&#x20AC;&#x201C; each resonating with the vibrancy and romance of their own modern story.
SIGNATURE HEART PENDANTS New to the Signature Silver collection, the Signature Heart pendants features two inward-facing hooks that delicately overlap to create the universal symbol of love.

THE WATCH OF THE OPEN SEAS
The Yacht-Master is revered for its casual yet purposeful allure. The large hour markers and broad hands are reserved for Professional models and remain extremely readable in all situations. The Yacht-Master is at home on deck on the open sea as well as on land in an elegant yacht club lounge.
THE OYSTERFLEX BRACELET The Yacht-Masterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new Oysterflex bracelet, developed and patented by Rolex, offers a sporty alternative to metal bracelets without compromising robustness, waterproofness or reliability. The bracelet attaches to the 18ct Everose gold 40mm Oyster watch case and the Oysterlock safety clasp by a flexible titanium and nickel alloy metal blade. The blade is overmoulded with high-performance black elastomer which is particularly resistant to environmental effects, very durable and perfectly inert for the wearer of the watch. For enhanced comfort, the inside of the Oysterflex bracelet is equipped with a patented longitudinal cushion system that stabilizes the watch on the wrist and fitted with an 18 ct Everose gold Oysterlock safety clasp that prevents accidental opening.

AN AWARD-WINNING BRITISH COMPANY PRODUCING BEAUTIFULLY ENGINEERED CHRONOMETERS.
The ALT1-C/PW is Bremont’s first non-limited edition polished steel watch that forms part of the core collection and is only produced in limited numbers each year. Its polished steel case is subjected to a hardening treatment, providing high impact resistance but still retaining its polished surface finish. The signature coating gives the watch case extreme hardness, excellent toughness, good wear and high impact fatigue resistance; it is as such used widely in the aerospace industry.
Time began for Bremont in 2002, when we embarked on a journey to make beautifully crafted pilot’s watches of exceptional quality. Inspired by a love of flying historic aircraft, of watches and all things mechanical, our timepieces had to be tested beyond the normal call of duty. The watches in our classic range are all COSC-certified and we are one of the few companies offering a 3-year warranty on every product. Immensely precise, reliable and durable, Bremont watches are hand built in limited numbers. Each is designed to appeal to those who share our passion for - and appreciation of - the innovation and mastery behind a beautiful mechanical wristwatch. We hope you enjoy the same satisfaction when you try on a Bremont watch, as we do in creating one.
All Bremont watches are manufactured here at our workshops in Henley-on-Thames and Silverstone, UK.
A LT 1 -Z T/ 5 1 The ALT1-ZT/51 adds a new dimension to the range whilst integrating a very important design cue from Bremont’s past - The Limited Edition P51. It maintains the clean legible dial with its new applied and bespoke coloured Super-LumiNova® index markers, and with the 24hr function having been moved to the bezel for improved clarity. Greater detailing around the stepped sub dials with micro lines on the ZT models has been made to give the dial more depth.

DH-88 LIMITED EDITION The Bremont 2016 Limited Edition celebrates the astonishing de Havilland DH-88 Comet, Grosvenor House, the aircraft that captured the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s imagination with a phenomenal record-breaking flight in 1934. Fighting exhaustion and significant mechanical challenges, whilst barely stopping for over three days, two men in their pioneering British racing aircraft won the incredible air-race from England to Australia. During the golden age of flight, the England to Australia record became the goal of many legendary aviators. The Smith brothers first completed the hazardous journey in 1919, taking 27 days and 20 hours. There would be many failures, but repeated attempts saw the time gradually reduced to just over seven days by 1934. The infamous MacRobertson Air Race aimed to, and succeeded in, shrinking that record further and in doing so, encourage the operation of a fast and safe commercial air route to Australia. The 282 stainless steel and 82 rose gold automatic timepieces are constructed ensuring the durability and precision Bremont is renowned for. The timepieces also incorporate original spruce plywood from the undercarriage assembly of this winning aircraft. The aircraftâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s story perfectly encapsulates the core values that inspire Bremont. A tremendous engineering achievement, the Comet completed an adventurous journey that secured its rightful place in aviation history. Through its own example of fine British craftsmanship, the Limited Edition Bremont DH-88, Bremont pays tribute to the Comet.
