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
This exciting military project sees Bremont produce a special watch for the Royal Navy Submarine Service. The Bremont RNS watch is exclusively available to Submariners from the Vanguard Class Submarines, who can be deployed for many months at a time without seeing either daylight or their loved ones. They undergo a rigorous training programme ensuring that every one of them understands the complex workings of the Submarine thus becoming integral to the safety of their shipmates and earning themselves the “Dolphins” badge. The Bremont MB watch, which undergoes it’s own rigorous testing...
Working with the pilots of the Boeing KC-135 Stratotanker, Bremont designed a unique watch based on the ALT1-Z, a popular choice for military personnel. The Bremont KC-135 watch was built exclusively forthe pilots, navigators and boom operators of the Boeing KC-135 Stratotanker which is a military aerial refuelling aircraft. These skilled men and women are trained to be in position anywhere in the world to provide fuel as required to almost any aircraft in the U.S. inventory.
The Westland Sea King first flew in May 1969 and continues to serve with the Royal Navy and Royal Air Force until its planned retirement in 2016. This sturdy helicopter has carried out almost every role possible in its lifetime from Anti-Submarine Warfare and Aerial Surveillance to Troop Carrying and Search And Rescue. The Bremont Sea King timepiece, which is based on Bremont’s ALT1-C and is only available to serving and retired pilots, is limited to 180 pieces which is the same number of Sea King helicopters built by Westland.
The Bremont Royal Marines Commando commemorates an incredible 350 years of history, once described by Churchill as “...long, rough and glorious...”. The style is that of a classic diver’s watch to provide excellent legibility and a 120 click uni-directional bezel all with high luminance. Limited to just 350 timepieces and exclusive to serving and retired Royal Marines. Built to the rugged but exacting standards that have become the hallmark of Bremont timepieces.
The Bremont B-2 Chronograph was produced for the elite aircrew of the Northrop Grumman B-2 Spirit. This American strategic bomber, with a two-man crew, is the only aircraft able to 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. Its DLC coated bezel and blacked-out features represent 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, UK. The 3AAC provides the offensive air elements of the 16th Air Assault Brigade. This watch was developed for aircrew who had commanded in at least two tours of Afghanistan.
Bremont supplies watches to a number of carrier-based squadrons. The US Navy Strike Fighter Squadron 81 - also known as the 'Sunliners' - flies Super Hornets out of the Naval Air Station, Oceana. This modified MBII watch was developed in close association with the aircrew.
The Boeing B-52 Stratofortress is a long-range, subsonic, jet-powered strategic bomber carrying up to 70,000 pounds (32,000 kg) of weapons. Designed and built by Boeing, it has been flown by the USAF since the 1950s. The B-52 Squadron chose to customise the Bremont ALT1-Z for its exclusive timepiece, a very popular model with the military, aviators and world-travellers alike thanks to its 24hr UTC function.
Bremont worked very closely with military C-17 aircrew to design a world timer chronograph. The 'Globemaster' lists the Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) identifiers representing C-17 landing locations in all 24 time zones. It can also show UTC time through its adjustable 24-hour hand.
The Bremont U-2 was created exclusively for, and tested extensively by, the 9th Reconnaissance wing at Beale Air-force Base, CA. Based on the Bremont MB, it was designed in association with British ejection seat manufacturer Martin-Baker to cope the demanding conditions experienced by this elite group of pilots: it functions 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 instructs experienced US Navy, Marine Corps and Air Force experimental test pilots.
