Hodinkee done did it again with a first look at British watchmaker Bremont’s latest creation, the P-51 Limited Edition chronograph watch. The company’s known for their aviation-themed timepieces but this beauty really takes things to a new level as it features actual aluminum from the outer skin of an historic P-51 Mustang plane which took flight during World War II as well as Sweden and Israel shortly thereafter.
On this watch, you can find the aluminum on the central 30-minute subdial and on the self-winding rotor which can be seen through the display caseback. The P-51 houses a modified Swiss chronograph chronometer movement, with the addition of a 24-hour UTC hand. No detail was spared on this watch as the winding rotor is a miniature version of a P-51 propeller.
When they said Limited Edition, they meant it as only 251 of the P-51 Limited Edition chronograph will be released.
