Watchmaker Bremont has collaborated with Williams Racing to release the Bremont WR-22 chronograph ahead of the 2022 Formula 1 season.
The 43mm chronograph design features a bi-directional tachymeter for precision timing, and is styled to hark back to classic motor sport chronographs. Meanwhile, dashes of Oxford blue, electric blue and white imbue it with Williams’ identity.
A finishing touch sits beneath the watch’s sapphire glass caseback, which reveals a custom-decorated tungsten rotor inspired by a Williams wheel rim with the team’s logo engraved. Owners of the watch will also receive a certified, authentic wheel nut from an historic Williams Grand Prix car.
“Williams Racing has found the perfect brand fit with Bremont,” says Williams team principal Jost Capito. “The synergies between our two businesses in terms of British design and engineering are undeniable, and complement each other beautifully. We’re excited to be launching the first Bremont Williams timepiece, a must-have for any racing enthusiast.”
The Bremont WR-22 was officially launched on March 7 and is available for purchase here.
