Bremont Creates Custom Clock for New Jaguar Concept Car

 

The New Jaguar C-X75 Concept – A Four-Wheel Drive Electric Supercar 

 

Bremont has produced a bespoke mechanical clock for the new Jaguar C-X75 concept supercar, a one-of-a-kind design project on display at the Paris Motor Show, launched 30th September 2010.

Jaguar – “The need for the information screens to be able to display information with timeless clarity led to co-operation with Bremont, an independent British company creating beautiful mechanical watches that are hand assembled at their dedicated atelier in Switzerland. Its aviation inspired designs and commitment to engineering excellence has seen the company quickly establish itself in the world of authentic luxury”.

Jaguar designers took styling cues from the Bremont MBII watch when creating the graphics for the time related elements of the HMI. The result is a perfect combination of traditional Jaguar warmth and absolute purity and precision. Bremont also produced a unique clock, which can be mounted in a turbine-inspired holder in the centre console. The clock’s mechanism uses the acceleration and braking forces of the car to keep it wound.

The relationship with Bremont inspired another element of the interior design of the C-X75. Bremont produces a watch, the MBI, exclusively for those who have had their lives saved by the Martin-Baker ejector seat. To date this British-developed safety system has saved more than 7000 people. In recognition of this, the interior door release handles of the C-X75 are crafted from aircraft-grade aluminum and mounted in the base of the seat, in the same position as a fighter jet ejector lever.

Bremont’s Co-founder Giles English commented, “Jaguar is not only one of the world’s premier manufacturers of luxury cars, but a great British brand with a rich heritage of producing beautifully engineered cars with sleek, sporting body style. We are very proud to have been asked again by Jaguar to make a bespoke car clock and thrilled for it to be for their C-X75 supercar”.

The Jaguar C-X75 is a stunning range-extended electric supercar concept car which has been designed to celebrate 75 years of the marque and provide a glimpse into the future of Jaguar and its commitment to producing beautiful, fast cars powered by sustainable means. The C-X75 hints at an exciting evolution of Jaguar’s design language while paying homage to some of its most admired cars of years gone by. The C-X75 is finished in Jetstream Silver, its designers staying true to the long-held Jaguar design philosophy of natural, flowing lines and simple, elegant forms.

Shorter and lower than the current crop of supercars, its exterior design is about pure performance. Thanks to the packaging efficiencies provided by the absence of a conventional piston engine, the car’s designers had maximum freedom in placing the mechanical components and creating the most elegant engineering package available.
