Adding to Bremont’s sought-after Armed Forces Collection is a new limited-edition Broadsword Recon timepiece that marries vintage qualities with the durability and ruggedness of modern watches.
Arriving in a 40mm stainless steel case, the Broadsword Recon imbues the spirit of the original 1940s Dirty Dozen field model with the seconds-subdial, Arabic numerals, and vintage lume. A first for the series, the piece features a modern sandwich dial incorporated with P51 Super-LumiNova®, which bestows the watch with brilliant luminescence, as well as enhanced visual depth.
The caseback comes engraved with all three Armed Forces Heraldic Badges, along with the words “Approved by Her Majesty’s Armed Forces.” The time-teller is paired with a classic Bremont NATO strap in a two-tone canvas material. On top of that, an additional strap in black rubber or brown leather is also offered to accommodate different styles and occasions.
In the official press release, Nick English, Bremont’s co-founder comments, “The Recon harks back to the original Dirty Dozen watches synonymous with military and exploration heritage yet feels incredibly modern on the wrist through the sandwich dial and a lovely saturated lume effect.”
Launching today, only 200 pieces of the Broadsword Recon will be produced. For more details on the watch’s price point and availability, visit Bremont’s official website for more information.
Elsewhere in watches, Christie’s will host the largest F.P. Journe watch auction this May.
