The New Bremont Armed Forces Collection

Bremont News & Releases

Bremont have continued their association with military-related timepieces with the launch of the Armed Forces Collection. The new collection, which will be released later this year, follows other Bremont watches with strong ties to the military, including the stunning Martin Baker ejector seat models.

In February 2019, Bremont announced they will be launching a brand-new range of watches in partnership with the Ministry of Defence (MoD) to honour Her Majesty’s Armed Forces. From this partnership, the Bremont Armed Forces Collection was born. Thanks to their partnership with the MoD, all pieces within the Bremont Armed Forces Collection feature legitimate signs, symbols and heraldic badges of all three services.

The Bremont Armed Forces Collection draws inspiration from the original ‘Dirty Dozen’ watches, a series of timepieces commissioned for the British Army during World War II.

Like all Bremont watches, the Armed Forces Collection will be produced at the company’s headquarters in Henley-on-Thames.

Bremont Armed Forces Collection at Banks Lyon

Banks Lyon are proud to have the entire Bremont Armed Forces Collection available to pre-order, and it’s fair to say that the watches in this family are not to be missed, with some truly stunning contemporary pieces available to choose from.

The aim of the Bremont Armed Forces Collection is to appeal to military personnel and civilians alike, producing a family of watches that are renowned for combining performance and reliability.

The collection has a watch for each wing of the armed forces: the Army, the Navy and the Royal Air Force. Each watch is vastly different and boasts specific features tailored to the different armed forces’ branches.

Bremont Argonaut

With a name inspired by Greek mythology, the Argonaut is synonymous with Navy history, having appeared on Commissioned ships for almost 250 years. With strong ties to marine environments, the Argonaut boasts a highly legible orange minute hand that can be seen in the darkest underwater depths, thanks to the filled custom green Super-LumiNova® within the hand. The Argonaut is water resistant up to an impressive 300 metres, so you can rest assured this timepiece can accompany you in the great depths of the ocean.

The 42mm satin polished two-piece hardened military dive watch, houses a three-handed chronometer rated BE-92AV movement which has a power reserve of 42 hours. All of this sits on a stylish 20mm navy blue sailcloth strap and comes with an additional 20mm blue temple island rubber strap.

Set to be officially released in August 2019, the Bremont Argonaut Watch is available to pre-order today on 0% finance from just £46.58 per month over terms up to 48 months. You can also choose to purchase this timepiece outright for just £2,795.

Bremont Arrow

Engineered with accuracy, durability and legibility in mind, the Bremont Arrow is a fantastic all-around watch. The mono-pusher chronograph, with the pusher sitting at 2 o’clock, will start, stop and reset the stopwatch on the chronometer rated BE-51AR movement. Boasting a 48-hour power reserve, this watch is certainly built to withstand even the harshest of environments.

The Bremont Arrow has the same British military DNA coursing through it as the Broadsword but is predominantly aimed at the airman with its chronograph functionality playing a vital role in any timed mission. This timepiece is water resistant up to 100 metres and sits on a 20mm RAF blue sailcloth strap.

This particular model will be officially released in June 2019, but the Bremont Arrow is available to pre-order from Banks Lyon for £3,595, or you could choose to pay as little as £59.92 a month over 48 months on 0% finance.
