3 year warranty
Bremont focuses purely on beautifully made mechanical movements and every watch in our core collection has passed each of the rigorous precision tests necessary for the ISO 3159 chronometer designation. Every movement is finished to the highest levels of craftsmanship and all are guaranteed to within -4 and +6 seconds per day. For this reason Bremont is one of the few watch makers to offer at least a 3-year warranty on every timepiece.
Proudly made in the UK
Great Britain has a wonderful history when it comes to watch making and has probably been the home to more advances in horology than any other nation. Bremont is determined to play a pivotal role in the reinvigoration of this industry on British shores and as a result, Bremont manufactures parts at its Parts Manufacturing Facility and every Bremont is hand-build and tested before leaving the Henley-on-Thames workshop.
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 dial features 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 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. As a ‘living’ metal, each model will develop its own unique patina over time, meaning no two watches will ever look the same.

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 MOD needed watches to issue to military personnel
Approved by her Majesty’s Armed Forces
We are the sole luxury watch producer allowed to legitimately use the signs, symbols and insignia of all three services on our watches
Driven by You
Precise, reliable and durable. Bremont watches are constructed to withstand the rigours of your journey, be it airborne, seaborne or overland. Bremont's maxim is to be Tested Beyond Endurance.
A watch for all occasions
Your watch has been carefully designed to perfectly match its strap, but don’t let that stop you adding your own flair and experimenting with further combinations.
The strap can make your watch look completely different so have a play ‘watch wardrobing’ your desired model and add options to suit any occasion.
REINVIGORATING THE BRITISH WATCH INDUSTRY
It is not completely unexpected to find that the world sets its time by Greenwich and not by Geneva. Whilst Geneva and Switzerland may be producing the vast majority of luxury wristwatches today, this certainly wasn’t always the case. In 1800 half of the world's watches, around 200,000 pieces a year, were produced on British shores by British watchmakers, which is an incredible statistic. Another wonderful statistic is that probably over 60-70% of the innovation in a modern day mechanical watch has come from Britain, including every major escapement design. Bremont's mission has always been to play a part in bringing back watchmaking to British shores.The Full story
