Bremont’s Cosmos-Inspired Watches Honor Astrophysicist Stephen Hawking

Professor Stephen Hawking was one of the world’s most pre-eminent minds in terms of scientific pursuit, helping humanity to understand the universe in his own abstract way. As a beloved theoretical physicist, he strove to uncover the mysteries of time, space, and our own perceived reality, providing a basis for scientific elaboration. Now, Bremont is paying homage to the icon with a limited-edition wristwear release known as the “Hawking Collection.”

The Hawking Collection is a classically-styled quartet of established wristwear models, all of which take on a handsomely-designed 41-millimeter case, BE-33AE movement, and 42-hour power reserve. Each unique model will incorporate a number of intriguing materials and aspects, including four inlaid wooden discs, taken from the desk where Hawking “contemplated the mysteries of the universe,” a portion of universally-symbolic meteorite, and an illustration of Oxford’s night sky on January 8th, 1942 — the day the Hawking was born. As a bonus, the watch’s unique serial number has been printed on paper from an original copy of Hawking’s 1979 research piece, “The ‘Nuts’ and ‘Bolts’ of Gravity,” which sought to shed light on the thermal properties of black holes. Only 388 stainless steel, 88 rose gold, and 88 white gold examples are slated for production, with the most affordable offerings starting at $9,995.

Purchase: $9,995+
