For the first time in its history, Bremont will auction one of the special U.S military collaboration watches, the F-15 “Eagle Driver”, to raise money for the Red River Valley Fighter Pilots Association.
All Bremont military edition watches are exclusive to military operators and purchases are subject to strict verification. As a rare exception, the United States Air Force F-15C Eagle community has agreed to allow Bremont to auction watch #15 with all proceeds going to the Red River Valley Fighter Pilots Association, a charitable organisation affectionately known as the “River Rats”. Since 1970, “The River Rats” have awarded more than 1,100 scholarship grants with a value of over 2.3 million dollars.
UPDATE The winning bidder will also receive some additional special items, including:
- A signed lithograph by the 131st Fighter Squadron
- An F-15C model plane provided by AviatorGear.com, with your choice of squadron colours
- A certificate of authenticity signed by the pilot who flew the watch in the F-15C
- Bremont and River Rat coins
This is a once in a lifetime opportunity and will never be offered again. The Bremont “Eagle Driver” special military edition is a unique and bespoke watch normally available exclusively to current or former F-15C pilots. In cooperation with The Boeing Company, the Bremont “Eagle Driver” watch project is based on the retail Bremont Boeing Model 1, which retails at $4,995. All proceeds will go toward the River Rats and their scholarship programs.
The Bremont F-15 “Eagle Driver” watch takes its inspiration from the world-renowned Boeing F-15C Eagle, designated by many as the “World’s Greatest Air Superiority Fighter”. Originally developed and built by McDonnell Douglas in the 1970’s, the Eagle has amassed an astounding victory record of 104 kills to zero losses, an achievement that puts it in contention for the title of the greatest fighter ever made. Designed with inputs from U.S. Air Force F-15C pilots, this mechanical chronometer is a must have for anyone who has flown the mighty Eagle. This auction marks a one-off opportunity for someone that hasn’t to own serial number 15.
If you needed another reason to bid on the exclusive F-15 Eagle Driver watch, it has now been flown in the F-15C Eagle with the 131st Fighter Squadron, reaching 50,000ft and Mach 1.5 during the sortie.
The Bremont F-15 Eagle Driver watch represents the F-15’s dominance and reputation as the most lethal air superiority fighter in modern military history. Boeing has given Bremont exclusive access to materials technology, and the watch is made using Boeing Ti-6-4 Titanium. The watch comes from the Bremont Boeing core range and is the first military edition ever to use the Model 1. Bremont and Boeing are proud to collaborate to create what we believe is the ultimate aviation watch that also pays tribute to the legendary F-15 Eagle. It has become a signature item for any “Eagle Driver.”

The RED RIVER VALLEY FIGHTER PILOTS ASSOCIATION was founded as a military organization of fighter pilots to commemorate inter-service teamwork, strong esprit de corps, and unprecedented sacrifices demonstrated by American fighting men during the campaign over North Vietnam. The association established Pride of Patriotism and Defense of the Constitution of the United States of America as its guiding principles.
The association provides an active forum for discussion and debate of aerial warfare issues and encourages the United States government to achieve the fullest possible accounting for all service personnel declared MIA/KIA (Missing In Action/Killed In Action) (body not recovered) in all armed conflicts.
