A closer look at the art deco-themed Bremoir Lexington watch

Bremoir has once again demonstrated its expertise in making “modern” style watches with the launch of the Art-Deco themed watch. The Lexington Art-Deco-Themed Bremoir watch can be described as a dressy sports model with a stainless steel tonneau case 11mm thick, 39mm wide and 48mm long. In addition to the AR coated flat sapphire crystal, it has a Swiss Made STP 1-11 automatic movement that operates at a frequency of 4Hz. Although not dive-worthy, this Art Deco-themed watch has 50m water resistance that preserves the watch in the pool. In this article, we will discuss the Art-Deco-Themed Bremoir Lexington Watch in more detail.

Overview

Lexington was the first watch made by Bremoir, a micro-brand located in Los Angeles, but headquartered in Manhattan. The Lexington watch features different dial colors, including the blue and copper dial that Bremoir calls the Lexington Morocco. The stepped bezel of the watch case and the overall design of the case and dial were inspired by the interior and exterior decor of New York’s famous Chrysler Building. Slightly older people generally prefer the Bremoir Lexington watch. This model was introduced back when Art Deco themed items such as art, appliances, architecture, and watches were very popular. This is a clear indication that Bremoir has done a great job of getting people to opt for Art Deco design products. A notable feature of the Lexington watch is the dial, which echoes the design of the hands, face and markers. In addition, the dial is a familiar representation of traditional watch face features with an elegant Art Deco visual aesthetic. For better viewing in the dark and to help improve the readability of the dial, the sections and hands of the dial are coated with Super-LumiNova. The hands and indexes of the Lexington watch end in chiselled dots overprinted with triangles that form arrowheads. The minute track is made up of clean, thick and well-executed cardinal numbers to give an elegant look. On the typeface, you’ll notice the tall, slender Bremoir logo, among other details that represent certain features of the Chrysler Building.

Dial and Lume

Unlike other dress watches that have a lot or a large case, the Bremoir Lexington perfectly balances both aspects. The influence of the Chrysler Building is evident by the inclusion of bright green triangles around the eye-catching dial and the contrasting copper hour track, reminiscent of the triangular arched windows found at the top of the building. The letters and numbers on the watch add to the same classic deco aesthetic, with their sharp edges and puffy angles and curves. Additionally, the graphic designs included in the Bremoir Lexington watch help provide a clearer insight into the origin and inspiration behind the watch. This dressy sports watch model comes in four different flask variations, including brown with a copper ring, black with a silver ring, blue with a copper ring, and blue with a silver ring. Along with the eye-catching copper ring on the dial, the stepped bezel design is a clear representation of the curved top face of the Chrysler’s Building that transitions into the iconic terraced crown. However, the lugs are quite short, making them thicker than the base band and strap to look odd compared to the height of the horn.

Straps

The navy blue suede with copper stitching on the Bremoir Lexington watch is meticulously crafted by Delugs, a leading brand in bracelet manufacturing. This standard strap features a stamped liner, quick release pins and a bespoke 18mm buckle that pairs well with the stepped bezel. There is also an optional second strap with a high quality two piece navy blue nylon strap incorporating a 20mm Bremoir buckle, metal loops and quick release pins. The standard navy suede strap is mostly preferred for casual wear, while the navy nylon strap is sportier. Nevertheless, these two Lexington bracelets are very comfortable on the wrist and add a strong and pleasant presence to your overall look. The Bremoir Lexington watch comes with a quick release leather strap that helps add to the perfect fit of the watch. The leather is also supple and soft, making it comfortable on the wrist.

Movement and background

Inside the Bremoir Lexington Art-Deco-Themed watch is a Swiss Technology Production STP 1-11.26 Automatic Jewel, a replica of the ETA 2824-2 workhorse. Unlike other ordinary everyday convection motion watches, Bremoir decided to change this standard by including the Lexington watch movement with exquisite ornamentation. For example, the baseplate is fitted with a beautiful beadwork, which adds a decent backdrop for the over-the-top limit rotor. Additionally, the black, gold, and silver coloring work perfectly to enhance the overall aesthetics of the watch. On the back of the watch you will find an elegantly finished 28.8k bph STP-1-11 fitted with a custom rotor. Surrounding the display window is a carefully polished frame with engraved serial numbers and watch specifications. Another notable feature is the crown of the watch, which is perfectly executed and has a well-polished, wedge-edged pointed cap that adds a nice finish to the overall look of the watch. Bremoir has also outdone itself by introducing fine lines and an elegant designer finish to the Lexington Art-Deco-Themed model.

Final Thoughts

The Bremoir Lexington watch is one of the Art-Deco models made at the height of Art Deco’s popularity. While many vintage watch designs attempt to capture direct inspiration, the Lexington watch elegantly captures both the Art Deco movement and the Chrysler Building itself, including its most notable features. Additionally, Bremoir watches are packaged in an elegant leather zippered presentation box, wrapped in a soft leather strap that matches the colors of the dial. Bremoir succeeds best in providing its buyers with various options to choose from that perfectly match their tastes and preferences.
