The Bremont ALT1-ZT/51 was designed with aviators and world travellers in mind.
Z stands for ‘Zulu Time’ and allows the wearer to display local time together with the official world time standard: Universal Time Coordinated (UTC), Greenwich Mean Time (GMT), or even Zulu time (Z).
UTC replaced GMT in 1972 as the international reference standard for communications, military, aviation, maritime and other activities that span multiple time zones.
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.
The Limited Edition P51.
Functionally the ALT1-ZT/51 has the same features as the ALT1-ZT/BK with the integration of the Roto-Click® bi-directional inner rotating bezel. The GMT hand combined with chronograph functionality measuring seconds, minutes and hours make this model ideal for travel. For additional clarity Bremont deploys the same hand design as the MB series, including the second time zone marker, which has been so effective on the MBIII. The ALT1-ZT/BK hands are used again but this time with several layers of bespoke coloured Super-LumiNova®.
As with most core range pieces the ALT1-ZT/51 has a specially treated 43mm stainless steel case made to an exceptional hardness of 2000 Vickers, which is seven times that of an average stainless steel watch case.
