A piece that was released this year as a tribute to Stephen Hawking celebrates the British heritage of watchmaking. The 41 mm case timepiece is available in three colors: rose gold, white gold, and stainless steel. Like the other tribute timepieces of Bremont, the Hawkings collection incorporated artifacts from Stephen Hawking himself. To be specific, the four wooden disks in the case back is from Hawking’s desk that he used from 1975 until his death. If you come to think about it, that same desk was used to create some of the biggest scientific discoveries of the century. The meteorite sample in the middle is attributed to Hawking’s studies of outer space. This piece is powered by BE-33AE automatic movement and has a 42-hour power reserve. The straps come in classic black, mahogany brown, and navy blue colors. In total, there are only 388 pieces in stainless steel, 88 for rose gold, and 88 for white gold.
