BREMONT JAGUAR E-TYPE 60th Anniversary Limited Edition Review
It has been 60 years since the launch of the first Jaguar E-Type sports car at the Geneva Motor Show in 1961 and celebrating its historic unveiling. Jaguar Classic has joined forces with British watch manufacturer Bremont to launch the unique Bremont Jaguar E -Type 60th anniversary limited edition set. In addition to one of two different limited-edition Bremont watches, the package will also include Bremont’s first-ever rally timer and a unique E-Type driving experience hosted by Jaguar Classic.
