We commemorate the 150th anniversary of the Rugby Football Union (RFU) with the release of the Limited Edition RFU 150 watch
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.
Limited to only 150 pieces, this watch honours this milestone in British sporting history. The bezel allows timekeepers to keep an eye on the match playing time with indicators showing the approach of half/full time in red and any extra-time added on in white. The dial is inspired by the blue tone of the England rugby team alternative kit and the inner dial ring is proudly stamped ‘Twickenham’. The closed case back features the RFU’s new, specially designed, Heritage Rose emblem celebrating the anniversary, taking inspiration from the first rose that featured on the players’ caps from 1871 (and still does today).

The home of rugby meets the home of British watchmaking
This timepiece encompasses the qualities on which the partnership was founded, the shared values of durability, precision, and technical ability.
Built to last
Constructed to withstand the rigours of your journey be it airborne, seaborne or overland.
Attention to detail
The curved sapphire crystal has multiple layers of scratch resistant anti-reflective coating, ensuring your watch is legible in all light conditions and remains looking it’s best, always.
This technology allows the bi-directional bezel to rotate whilst gliding on a series of four ball bearings, producing excellent accuracy, durability and a satisfying click for every minute rotated.
Anti-shock movement mount
Included in every watch is a rubberised movement mount. A flexible ring connects the mount to the outer case, absorbing shocks and allowing the inner case and movement to float
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
