Bremont Armed Forces Watch Collection

Feb 27, 2019

Bremont has acquired the official rights to use the signs and badges of the British Army, Royal Navy, and Royal Air Force from the British Ministry of Defense, allowing them to create timepieces inspired by the field watches worn by British soldiers during WWII. The Bremont Armed Forces Watch Collection takes design cues from the dozen Swiss watch companies referred to as the “Dirty Dozen” that made British WWII timepieces.

There are three distinct watches offered in the collection: Arrow, Broadsword, and Argonaut. Each timepiece is themed to be either a pilot, field, or dive watch. Although it’s quite difficult to choose, our favorite is the Arrow with a BE-51AE automatic chronometer and 48-hour power reserve. The Arrow, which takes on an airman theme, has a 42mm satin and polished two-piece case, a 20mm RAF blue sailcloth strap, 27 jewels, Glucydur balance, and offers water resistance up to 100 meters. All of the watches have steel cases engraved with “Approved by Her Majesty’s Armed Forces.” This is the first time Bremont military watches are being made available to civilians and the timepieces start at $3,445.

Purchase: $3,445+
