THE RAPHA CYCLING CLUB
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.

bremont + rapha
Bremont, much like Rapha, was borne from a passion for performance, for boundary-breaking design that stands the test of time. Its legendary watches are constantly pushing the limits and expanding the edges of endurance. Rapha has always looked to move the dial and aim for adventure, to create products that can withstand all kinds of riding. Bremont and Rapha have partnered to create a unique version of the Bremont MBIII, available just to RCC members.
TESTED BEYOND ENDURANCE
Based on Bremont’s MB range, the movement is protected in a rubberised anti-shock movement mount protecting the mechanism from extreme shocks and vibration, making it entirely fit for purpose.
ENGINEERED FOR PERFORMANCE
An exhibition smoked glass tinted case back showcases the modified calibre BE-93-2AE automatic chronometer rated movement and a custom Rapha-branded rotor.
BUILT TO LAST
The MBIII Rapha incorporates a distinctive and tactile knurled effect on the barrel and crowns. Key functions include a GMT, date function and 42 hour power reserve. A black rubber sports strap, best suited for sporting endeavours, completes the all-black colour palette.
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
