The U-22 design is the result of a high profile military project where Bremont was commissioned to update the original U-2, using the extensive testing history behind it, but built and custom-tested to specific requirements. Taking its design cues from this squadron timepiece the U-22 features a newly developed bezel design together with a new barrel colour and date design for the range.

True to its aviation roots, the updated date display was designed to reflect the view on an altimeter which balances the dial well. There is also a difference with the bi-directional rotating inner bezel, originally designed to measure 60 minutes, and altered in the U-22 to a compass quadrant of a pilot which is often useful in navigation weather mapping. The bronze barrel colour was specifically inspired by a number of military watches Bremont has produced in the past based on the anti-reflective coating used on their cockpit canopies.

The Bremont U-2 was designed exclusively for, and tested extensively by, the elite Spy Plane Squadron based at Beale, California. These incredible pilots regularly take their iconic aircraft up to 80,000 feet on reconnaissance missions that often last over 12 hours. Four retail models are available, which have all been put through their paces at 100,000 feet and -50oC in the laboratory and out on missions. 

Such is the clarity and durability of the U-2, that it has become a popular model on which some of our bespoke military projects have been based. A watch that that has been ruthlessly engineered to be fit for purpose. However extreme that purpose may be.
