Following on from the success of the Armed Forces collection which debuted last year, Bremont have announced the release of three breathtaking new Bremont Armed Broadsword Bronze watches. Continuing to pay tribute to Her Majesty’s Armed Forces, these stunning timepieces are fully armed in bronze, a material chosen for its history within the military world alongside three unique dial designs that perfectly balance the line between vintage and contemporary.
The Bremont Broadsword was originally released in 2019 alongside two other Armed Forces watches: the Arrow and Argonaut. The trio was inspired by a range of watches commissioned for the British Army during WWII known as the “Dirty Dozen”. These watches were needed by Britain’s Ministry of Defence for supplying military personnel with high precision and robust wristwear. The new Bremont Armed Forces Broadsword Bronze watches continue to be inspired by the three handed ‘Dirty Dozen’ watch and remain the only of their kind officially permitted to use the signs, symbols and Heraldic badges of the Royal Navy, British Army and the Royal Air Force.
“We are still incredibly humbled and proud by the recognition that Bremont was given by the MoD to create the Armed Forces Collection. It felt like a great fit to produce the Broadsword in this interesting material, particularly with its use being so crucial in naval history. It has not only been designed and engineered to meet these criteria but also to reflect the needs of Her Majesty’s Armed Forces today.” – Nick English, Co-Founder of Bremont Watches
The use of bronze in the Bremont Armed Forces watch collection makes perfect sense, not only for its incredible popularity over the years but for its history within the military. Bronze is used extensively in naval engineering with most ships fitted with pumps and valves contrived from bronze because of its excellent sea water corrosion resistance and strength. As a watch material, bronze offers its own unique characteristic, one that will develop its own patina over time. When exposed to moisture in the air and pH levels in perspiration, the bronze will darken and change colour meaning no two of the Bremont Armed Forces Bronze watches will ever look the same.
Engineered from Cusn8 bronze, a solid solution strengthened by copper alloy with 8% tin, the bronze cases of the Bremont Armed Forces Broadsword Bronze watches measure to a comfortable 40mm in size and come delivered with an ultra-thin temporary anti-fingerprint coating. This allows for a short period where little to no patina will develop on the case. The bronze editions also feature smooth fixed bezels, screw in crowns, domed sapphire crystal glass with anti-reflective treatment and a closed stainless steel case back engraved Her Majesty’s Armed Forces Heraldic badges.
There are three Bremont Armed Forces Broadsword Bronze watches available in three different coloured dial and strap variations. The first is the Broadsword Bronze “Slate” which features a slate grey dial and a matching grey Nubuck leather strap. The second is the Broadsword Bronze “Sotek” with a stunning military green-teal coloured dial and brown strap and lastly, the Broadsword Bronze “Tobacco” delivers a vintage brown dial and matching brown Nubuck leather strap. All variations are detailed with luminous paint on the dial and a bronze pin buckle.
The BE-95-2AV automatic winding calibre is used to power each of the Bremont Armed Forces Broadsword Bronze watches, a chronometer rated movement to ISO 3159 standard. It provides central hands for hours and minutes, a small seconds dial at 6 o’clock and date at 3 o’clock and a power reserve of 38 hours.
