So should you worry about magnetism as a watch wearer? Yes and no. You have to realize that, to a large degree, the concern isn't that you are suddenly going to find yourself around serious industrial magnets or in an MRI machine. The worry is how relatively small magnetic fields often caused by modern technology can either temporarily effect or permanently damage the movement inside of your watches. Standard equipment for all mechanical watch repair facilities is a de-magnetizer machine. Originally, anti-magnetic watches were developed for various types of professionals, such as scientists who worked around strong magnetic fields. Ironically, as we use more and more technology in our life, the "threat" of magnetism to watches is amplified. So do you need an anti-magnetic watch? Maybe. Do you want one? Probably.
So, a bit more about the movement... Again, it is the in-house made calibre FPJ 1300-3 automatic. The movement is mostly produced from 18k rose gold and has a 22k gold automatic rotor that has been decorated with guilloche engravings. The movement operates at 3Hz (21,600 bph) with 192 hours of power reserve. The movement is gorgeous in typical F.P. Journe style - and visible through the caseback's sapphire crystal window. I'm also happy to see another perpetual calendar movement that doesn't, by some odd sense of necessity, have a moon phase indicator.
The Bremont Boeing Model 247 Ti-GMT uses Bremont's version of ETA's 7750, called the BE-54AE, which is the same automatic GMT chronograph caliber used on many of the ATL-1 models that offer a GMT hand. Much like the BE-93-2AE, the BE-54AE runs at 4Hz with 42 hours of power reserve and COSC certification.
