    Description

    Rooted in our longstanding partnership with the Ministry of Defence, the Broadsword Recon is designed as a contemporary take on the three handed ‘Dirty Dozen’ field watch design. This series of timepieces was commissioned for the British Army during World War Two, when Britain’s Ministry of Defence needed watches to issue to military personnel.

    Stamped with the badges of all three services, the case back states ‘Approved by Her Majesty’s Armed Forces’ given that this limited edition watch was designed and approved by the MOD under Her Majesty’s Reign.

    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.
