In 2003, after having captured the imaginations of avgeeks and plane travellers in search of shorter flights everywhere since its first service flight in 1976, the supersonic Concorde was retired from service, having captured public imagination in a way that arguably no other modern passenger jet has.

At the end of the same year, Bonhams conducted The British Airways Concorde Charity Sale, at which parts of the planes were sold. Since then, there have been occasional auctions of Concorde memorabilia, including the unmistakable nose cone.

Now, to mark the upcoming fiftieth anniversary since the Concorde’s first flight in 1969, you too can own a part of her, with Bremont announcing the limited edition Bremont Supersonic in partnership with British Airways, who have donated metal from the G-BOAB Concorde, known as Alpha Bravo. The third Concorde to join BA, the aircraft was registered in 1974, and her first flight was from Filton to Fairford in May 1976. In September 1984 she set a distance record for an airliner with a 4,565 mile flight from Washington to Nice and in November of that year, she flew the inaugural charter service from London to Seattle via New York.

I guess my question is "how is any different than the watch with a mustang part or a C-47 part anon"

Meh.

I don't think LE's with naff claims about components made from supposed historically important sources does a watchmaker any favours. Bremont seem determined to make it their business model :roll:

Watches made with "DNA" from something iconic/notable/historical are fucking idiotic and only fucking idiots buy them.

Interestingly, this is one Bremont that doesn't put me into a fucking coma.
I checked you out, and I now want you to take the journey to lick my taint. It's small, but vast.
