Bremont has always had a very tight working relationship with the military, some examples of this are below, and as a result operates very closely with multiple squadrons around the world to help them develop bespoke mechanical chronometers that closely mirror their Squadron’s DNA. Working in line with Bremont’s core principles, we have been able to do something that no other luxury watch brand has been able to do - deliver watches that are uncompromisingly Bremont, but also very much unique on a Squadron level. If your Squadron is interested in talking to Bremont with the possibility of creating something unique, please call or email us
The Bremont B-2 Chronograph was produced for the elite aircrew of the Northrop Grumman B-2 Spirit. This American strategic bomber, with its crew of two, is the only aircraft that can carry large air-to-surface standoff weapons in a stealth configuration. Designed in conjunction with the Squadron, the Bremont B-2 Chronograph is based on the ALT1-Z with a DLC coated bezel and blacked out features it truly represents the B-2, also known as the Stealth Bomber.
The Apache inspired GMT Chronograph was developed with 3 Regiment Army Air Corp based at Wattisham in the UK. The 3AAC provides the offensive air elements of the 16th Air Assault Brigade. This watch was developed for those aircrew who had commanded in at least two military tours of Afghanistan.
Bremont supplies watches to a number of carrier-based squadrons. The Strike Fighter Squadron 81, also known as the “Sunliners”, is a United Sates Navy F-18E Super Hornet Squadron based at the Naval Air Station, Oceana. A modified MBII watch was developed in association with the squadron aircrew.
The Boeing B-52 Stratofortress is a long-range, subsonic, jet-powered strategic bomber. The B-52 was designed and built by Boeing. It has been operated by the United States Air Force (USAF) since the 1950s. The bomber carries up to 70,000 pounds (32,000 kg) of weapons. The B-52 Squadron chose the Bremont ALT1-Z to customise for their exclusive timepiece, this model is very popular with the military, aviators and world-travellers largely due to the 24hr UTC function.
Bremont worked very closely with military C-17 aircrew to design a world timer chronograph. Named the ‘Globemaster’, the watch lists the Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) identifiers representing C-17 landing locations in all 24 time zones. The watch can show UTC time through its adjustable 24-hour hand.
Based on the MB range, this squadron watch for the U-2 Reconnaissance wing at Beale Air-force Base, CA. has been designed in association with British Ejection seat manufacturer, Martin-Baker, to be able to operate up at 100,000ft at –40 degrees Celsius.
Bremont supplies the United States Naval Test Pilot School (USNTPS) with a modified ALT1-Z GMT chronograph. Located at Patuxent River, Maryland, the USNTPS provides instruction to experienced US Navy, Marine Corps and Air Force experimental test pilots.
