Broadsword model and bronze case report on duty in the Bremont Armed Forces collection
Bremont is a British watch brand founded in 2002 by brothers Nick and Giles English. It is famous for its aviation and military-inspired watch series, with strong British characteristics. The latest model reported on duty in the Bremont Armed Forces collection is broad sword bronze. Unlike many military-themed watches, Bremont has a legal certificate and has enjoyed a formal partnership with the Ministry of Defense (MoD) since 2019. This partnership allows Bremont to use the Royal Navy, British Army and Royal Aviation logos, symbols and heraldic insignia. The civilians were initially only used by the armed forces under je, and now you can buy official Bremont Military watches.
The Broadsword series is Bremont’s contemporary interpretation of “Dirty Dozen”, which is a series of timepieces manufactured according to the specifications of the Ministry of Defense during World War II. Rugged and durable water-resistant timepiece with black dial, white text, luminous paint, auxiliary seconds and chronograph specifications, this is the distinguishing feature of the watch-called WWW (Watch Wristband Waterproof) in military regulations-is wide Arrows or carvings to represent the property of the British royal family.
Maritime bronze case
In 2020, the Broadsword series will usher in three different bronze cases, a material related to naval engineering technology, thanks to its corrosion resistance to salt water. The case is 40 mm wide and is made of CuSn8 bronze. CuSn8 bronze is a strengthened copper alloy containing 8% tin. The tin content strengthens the housing and makes it more corrosion resistant. The stainless steel screw-in caseback and bronze screw-in crown ensure water resistance to 100 meters, and the Royal Navy, British Army and Royal Air Force badges are printed on the back. The strap is engraved with three speed lines, and the oversized bronze crown is decorated with the cheap Bremont propeller logo, which is the same pattern that appears on the dial at noon. The two-part bronze case has been brushed to give it a sporty feel, and like all bronze cases, its patina will gradually form over time.
The metal dial is available in slate, sotek (military green) and tobacco colors, with most of the specifications of the original Dirty Dozen. The large white Arabic numerals, dark background, the second hand at 6 o’clock, and a large number of white Super-LumiNova watches on the hands and dial give it military status, while the date window at 3 o’clock adds daily practical functions to civilians I will really appreciate. Dome-shaped anti-reflective scratch-resistant sapphire crystal dial.
Like the “Dirty Twelve Dozens” specifications, the BE-95-2AV automatic movement has astronomical watch standards. In fact, the movement is the top executive observatory grade (ISO 3159 standard) Sellita SW260-1 that meets Bremont specifications. The movement beats at a speed of 28,800vph and can store up to 38 hours of power to keep the hours, minutes, sub-seconds and date synchronized.
Three different 20mm belts are available: brown nubuck leather with white stitching, gray vintage leather and khaki vintage leather.
