Today at their annual Townhouse event, Bremont announced their partnership with the Ministry of Defence and in celebration of this, their new Armed Forces Collection.
The new HMAF (Her Majesty’s Armed Forces) collection signifies a significant step in the evolution of Bremont’s relationship with Her Majesty’s Government. Until now, although Bremont has been commissioned to produce one off pieces by specific military units uniquely for them, Bremont have not had a formal relationship with the Ministry of Defence. Today that changes. Bremont is proud to announce its partnership with the Ministry of Defence honouring Her Majesty’s Armed Forces. Through this partnership, Bremont has become the sole luxury watch producer allowed to legitimately use the signs, symbols and insignia of all three services. This is also the first time that civilians can purchase official Bremont military timepieces bearing these symbols.
To celebrate this new relationship, Bremont today have released three pieces incorporating the Heraldic badges of the Royal Navy, British Army and Royal Air force. These are the Argonaut, the Broadsword and the Arrow. These have been designed around a new traditional two piece case with a screw in, stamped caseback.
For the Navy, Bremont announced the Argonaut: a 42mm steel cased dive watch with an internal unidirectional bezel and a 300m water resistance on a Royal Navy blue sailcloth strap and is available for £2795. For Land forces, Bremont announced the Broadsword: a 40mm Field watch with small seconds on a traditional British Army green canvas strap and is available for £2595. For the Airforce Bremont announced the Arrow: a 42mm Monopusher chronograph on a Royal Airforce blue canvas strap which is available for £3595.
This is the third year that Bremont have organised their now Iconic townhouse event – naturally a typically British approach to showcasing their latest collection. Bremont will be hosting sister Townhouse event in New York this year following on from this event.
