Bremont Armed Forces Collection

It looks like 2019 is starting with a strong military inspired watches. Bremont have released their Armed Forces Collection. 

From Bremont website...

Bremont is proud to enter into a partnership with the Ministry of Defence (MoD) honouring Her Majesty’s Armed Forces. Through this partnership, Bremont have become the sole luxury watch producer allowed to legitimately use the signs, symbols and Heraldic Badges of all three services. This marks the first time that civilians can purchase official Bremont Military timepieces. Consequently, Bremont have released a new military inspired range of watches incorporating the emblems of the Royal Navy, British Army and the Royal Air Force. 

The Armed Forces Collection draws inspiration from the original ‘Dirty Dozen’ watches, a series of timepieces commissioned for the British Army during World War II when Britain’s Ministry of Defence needed watches to issue to military personnel.

There are 3 watches in the collection. The first watch in the collection is the HMAF-Broadsword-D. This watch is the closest to the W.W.W. watch with its simple 3 hands layout with date complication and small seconds at 6 o'clock.

The next watch is the HMAF-Arrow-D. This watch features a mono-pusher chronograph with the chronograph registers in a bi-compax layout. The chronograph registers are are at 3 and 9 o'clock.

The last watch in the collection is the HMAF-Argonaut-D. This is the diver watch in the trifecta. It features a two crown 'compressor/ super compressor' design from the 60s and 70s. It has internal rotating bezel and is rated to 30ATM. 

All the 3 watches will be COSC certified and all watches will be rated to a minimum of 10ATM. The most interesting part of the watch is the case back. It will be adorned with the MoD heraldry.
