Bremoir, Art-Deco Time
Hello and welcome to another review. Before I begin a brief history, today's review will be slightly different. Firstly it will be the first-ever Art-Deco Inspired timepiece I have reviewed and Secondly, there will be a lot less narration compared to previous reviews, As I feel this is a timepiece that couldn't be more of a testament to the phrase "A picture says a thousand words" If it tried. So sit back, Relax and Enjoy.
Todays Piece is by American Microbrand Bremoir, Originally founded in 2019 by Patrick Bremoir who grew up in Oak Park, Chicago, a family suburb where the streets are lined with big beautiful green trees and striking buildings. It was here that Patrick discovered his love for architecture, in particular the art-deco era. So after years of contemplating he decided to combine his two passions, Watches and Architecture. So after years of drawings and designs in the hunt for perfection. Bremoir officially released their first watch in August of 2021 THE LEXINGTON.
Now, You have been pre-warned, There will be little narration in this review as only the Timepiece speaks for itself. But as always I'll give my honest opinion and a general synopsis of The Lexington. Starting as always with the case. Made from our dear friend Mr 316l Stainless Steel, The brushed case with a striking three-tiered polished bezel which leads to the star attraction sets the tone that we have a special piece on our hands. Designed with curved brushed steel lugs that simply hug the wrist, The 39.5mm case of The Lexington looks and feels like a timepiece ten times the price.
Patrick wanted to create a watch that would appeal to a wide demographic and ensure that the dimensions of the watch matched the style matched the vintage flair that the art deco era is known for. As you draw your eye away from the polished stepped bezel to the Sapphire Crystal coated dial, Your met with a dial that draws inspiration from one of the most iconic American structures, The Chrysler Building. At the core is a matte black dial, surrounded by a polished silver Chapter ring, along with 3-dimensional numerals that add much-needed depth to the dial along with your hour markers that draw inspiration from The Chrysler building's main entrance and spire triangles which adorn the top of the building. Now as you can imagine Patrick wanted to add something special and in doing so he created his minute markers shaped like doorways in Tribute to the iconic Building. Finishing off the dial is exceptional Swiss-Lume which is truly spectacular at night .
Now I did promise you this will be short and sweet so I will wrap this up in the next 7 sentences. Powering The Lexington is the Swiss-made STP1-11 Automatic Movement, which features, hacking, hand winding capabilities, and a power reserve of 44 hours, All of which can be viewed through The Lexington's Sapphire Crystal case back. The Lexington is finished perfectly with a 20mm black leather strap with white stitching that simply oozes sophistication. The Lexington comes in a high-quality, padded case with exquisite detailing.
The build quality and attention to detail simply blew me away, The Lexington is a truly exceptional timepiece and one that I can't but recommend. With an RRP of $985 it is on the slightly higher end. But worth it. You can check it out here. Thanks for Reading.
