DESCRIPTION

cheveron down

One of Bremont’s proudest achievements to date was the beginning of an official partnership with the Ministry of Defence (MoD) in 2019, paying tribute to Her Majesty’s Armed Forces. Through this partnership, Bremont became the sole luxury watch producer legitimately allowed to use the signs, symbols and Heraldic Badges of all three services; the Royal Navy, British Army and Royal Air Force.

2020 sees the introduction of the Broadsword Bronze timepieces, adding to the original line up in Bremont’s Armed Forces Collection. The use of bronze nods to the material’s importance in naval engineering due to its high corrosion resistance to salt water. The new Broadsword case is made of CuSn8 bronze, a solid solution strengthened copper alloy with 8% tin. The high tin content adds to strength, wear and resistance to corrosion. The Bremont Broadsword was originally designed as a contemporary take on the three handed ‘Dirty Dozen’ watch design, a series of timepieces commissioned for the British Army during World War Two when Britain’s Ministry of Defence needed watches to issue to military personnel.

The new bronze editions will be available in three different coloured dial and strap variations, complementing the existing range. The ‘slate’, ‘sotek’ (a military green/teal colour) and ‘tobacco’ dials feature a sub-seconds hand at six o’clock as well as multiple layers of luminous paint on both the dial and hands to complete the original specification for the British Army. The Broadsword Bronze houses the chronometer rated BE-95-2AV movement inside its two-piece 40mm case featuring a steel, screw-in case back stamped with the badges of all three services. As a ‘living’ metal, each model will develop its own unique patina over time, meaning no two watches will ever look the same.

Nick English, Bremont Co-Founder

Approved by Her Majesty’s Armed Forces

Bremont are the sole luxury watch producer allowed to legitimately use the signs, symbols and insignia of all three services on their watches.

A Piece of History

The Armed Forces Collection draws inspiration from the original ‘Dirty Dozen’ watches, a series of timepieces commissioned for the British Army during WW2 when Britain’s Ministry of Defence needed watches to issue to military personnel.

 

Tested beyond endurance

Like the watches from WW2, very strict performance specifications have been set which included waterproofing, regulation to chronometer specification, luminous markings on the dial and a robust case construction.

The new Broadsword case is made of CuSn8 bronze

A solid solution strengthened copper alloy with 8% tin. The high tin content adds to strength, wear and resistance to corrosion.

Hand-Built in Britain

Bremont’s has a well-respected heritage in making durable and rugged watches. It’s reputation within the military, specifically with the British military, made Bremont the natural partner of choice for the MoD.

One of Bremont’s proudest achievements is the beginning of an official partnership with the Ministry of Defence (MoD) in 2019. 2020 sees the introduction of the Broadsword Bronze, adding to the original line up in the Armed Forces Collection.
