The limited edition Bremont Wright Flyer is a wristwatch that contains a piece of the first ever airplane, the Wright Flyer built by Orville and Wilbur Wright and first flown in 1903.
The watches each contain a swath of original wing fabric from the aircraft. The fabric is housed in a window on the reverse side of the watch along with a decorative plate featuring an airplane prop inscribed with the Wright Brothers' initials.
The Bremont Wright Flyer wristwatch comes in a range of prices. The steel-cased version sells for $25,950, the rose gold version for $39,995 and the yellow gold version for $44,995. A portion of the profits from sale of the watch will go towards converting the Wright family home into a museum.
