Newest Editions to the Bremont Collection

Bremont Project Possible Limited Edition Watch

Commemorating the ULTIMATE mountaineering feat, the Bremont ‘Project Possible’ Supermarine S500 pays homage to Bremont Ambassador Nurmal ‘Nims’ Purja MBE who has tested Bremont timepieces in some of the most challenging and harsh destinations on Earth! 

With a worldwide limited edition of just 300 pieces this spectacular NEW timepiece brings additional GMT functionality to the Bremont S500. A stunning bronze unidirectional bezel with blue ceramic inlay with contracting titanium case and a bold blue dial with bronze hands.

But this piece is about more than just the look the wearer has the confidence of knowing that their watch has been hand built here in the UK (we love saying this!) fully mechanical with COSC certification. The exhibition case back reveals the heights of the 14 ‘DEATH ZONE’ mountains in the order that Nims summited them in 2019 in under 7 months a record that will be hard to break!

This timepiece is special, inspiring and I know will become a firm favourite for those of my customers who will be lucky enough to wear one!Sharon Bibby RJ.Dip, PJ Man Dip – Blackburn Store Manager

Bremont ALT1-C Griffon Watch

Arguably the most iconic aircraft to have been produced on British soil, is the Supermarine Spitfire. The spitfire is near and dear to the hearts of the co-founder of Bremont, Nick and Giles English as late father Euan proudly operated this famous single-seat fighter that was used by the Royal Air Force. A true testament to the beautiful story of Bremont the ‘ALT1-C GRIFFON’ is fantastic tribute.

The name Griffon comes from arguably the finest engine fitted to a spitfire with this being the configuration that was once owned by the English family. The Griffon was a concept that from the start had to produced in the ALT1-C, as this was the first watch designed by the English brothers.

Whilst the Griffon retains the core DNA from the original ALT1-C Cream, it has an updated darker dial and hands and the detail on this new model harks back to some early chronometer designs with more of a ‘military instrument’ feel to it. The cream lume certainly adds to this effect of vintage military style.

The stories for me are the reason I love selling Bremont watches and there are so many stories to tell. The ALT1-C GRIFFON is the embodiment of the Spitfire – technical innovation, precision and durability and has an amazing story.Gemma Smith PJ Dip – Blackburn Assistant Manager

Bremont ALT1-P2 JET Strap Watch

Passionate about celebrating British engineering and innovation, and as part of the testing cycle, Bremont has teamed up with veritable aviation pioneers Gravity Industries to put the new watch through its paces.

Richard Browing’s, the founder of ’Gravity Industries’, invention the ‘Gravity Jet Suit’, which uses several miniature jet engines is the main inspiration for this new exciting timepiece by Bremont.

Based on the original ALT1-P pilot’s watch, the definitive aviation chronograph, the ALT1-P2 JET boasts a hardened DLC case with black dial, combined with Bremont’s iconic ’51 lume’. Turning the watch over reveals a smoked crystal case back with black rotor continuing the stealthy aesthetic.

Bremont is one of the best watch manufacturers I have ever had the pleasure of working with and the ALT1-P2-JET is my favourite Bremont so far. I might just have to treat myself!Peter Jackson MBE – Managing Director

The Oris Carysfort Reef Limited Edition

This magnificent timepiece is the first of its kind in the Oris diving watch history to be made from solid 18 carat yellow gold. Not only that, it is limited to an exclusive 50 pieces worldwide. To top it off, by investing in one of these unique pieces you will also be supporting the “Coral Restoration Foundation”; a percentage of the sales from these watches are raising money to help the charity to continue with their hard efforts of improving the coral reefs back to their former natural beauty. This is part of Oris’s ‘change for the better’ mission to help the planet.

What are the features of this timepiece?

The Carysfort Reef watch has the traditional automatic movement, Oris 798, with a 42 hour power reserve.  The case, bezel and crown are all crafted in solid 18 carat gold while the bezel is featuring a scratch and fade resistant blue and black ceramic inlay which represents night and day for the second time zone feature. Protecting the deep blue dial with gold plated hands is a scratch resistant sapphire crystal glass with anti-reflective coating to allow better visibility both in and out of the water.

Turning the watch over you will see the delicate coral image that celebrates 30,000 corals having been planted along with the individual limited-edition number that is engraved into a sapphire crystal inlay set into the gold case back. Fitted to the case, the strap is a deep-sea blue leather coated with rubber for added protection against water and fastened with an 18 carat gold buckle.

The Oris Carysfort Reef is presented in a spectacular wooden presentation box and comes with a three-year international warranty.

Who is The Coral Restoration Foundation?

They are the leading non-profit coral restoration organisation group which are working endlessly to reintroduce coral to damaged reefs in the Great Barrier Reefs. Coral has disappeared by 98 percent since the 1950’s and 60’s when the reefs were at their height of recreational diving.

This Oris timepiece is supporting their on going work in Carysfort in Key Largo, Florida. It is the only barrier reef in the USA and the 3rd largest in the world. By the end of this year the foundation will have planted over 30,000 corals on the Florida Reef and this has been achievable because of the partnership with Oris. They hope to restore the reef to its original historical levels and then it can begin its natural recovery process.

Restoring the coral is done by using cuttings from the existing living corals in the reefs as they have survived the harsh conditions so they will have more of a chance of growing and continuing to survive the effects of climate change. The cuttings are left to grow in a protected ocean nursery and checked every seven days. One cutting can produce thousands of new hardier corals. Cuttings are eventually taken from these growing trees and placed into the coral reefs to start the restoration process.

Why is Coral restoration important?

Coral is an essential ecosystem to the planet as it provides 70 percent of the worlds oxygen although it only covers 1 percent of the earths surface, which is pretty incredible right? It also protects the shorelines and supports fisheries as 25 percent of the marine species call it home.

Sadly without any action in the next 80 years coral reefs could disappear and become extinct. This is due to climate change causing the sea temperature to rise. Making it one of the most endangered ecosystems on planet earth.

So with the purchase of this watch you are not only buying a unique, sought after piece to adorn your wrist, you are also helping towards saving the planet. Our company is incredibly lucky to have secured one of these watches. If you would like further information or to pre-order this watch follow this link to our website or contact your nearest branch.

Nothing screams British in the jewellery industry like Clogau. The Welsh, second generation, family run company is inspired by the rolling hills of North Wales and the heritage of the British Isles. Famed for their use of rare Welsh gold, every piece of jewellery that Clogau contains a trace of Welsh gold.

Through our close relationship with Clogau, we have produced two stunning limited-edition pendants that are exclusive to us in very small quantities. The silver Tree of Life® Origin Amethyst Limited-Edition Pendant is limited to just 40 pieces or if you want to splash out more on the moment, then how about the luxurious 9ct gold version that is just 1 of 10.

Emporio Armani

From one of the leading fashion houses in the world, Emporio Armani create modern contemporary watches for both Men and Women that would easily fit in the catwalks of Italy. The famous eagle logo sits proudly on the dial of each watch and could be the best wristwear to treat someone to this Valentine’s.

The Renato Gents Blue Leather Strap Watch oozes Italian sophistication with its soft leather, a handsome blue dial and a pop of rose gold on the bezel to contrast the steel case; a watch for both formal and casual occasions. 

A ladies’ watch with a difference, The Aurora Floral Rose Gold Watch has a luxury feel defined by the floral dial playing with tones of soft silver and grey; a brilliant backdrop to the key features produced in rose gold plating.


Swiss made is the biggest stamp of approval a watch brand can receive, but a watch brand with scratch resistant sapphire crystal glass, swiss movement, 2-year international warranty and heritage dating back to the 1800’s for less than £500 is outstanding. In fact, Tissot watches start from just £180! For Valentine’s day if you are looking for the best quality for your money in a watch, then look no further.

We love the simplicity of our first piece. The T-Lady Blue Square Dial Lovely Bracelet Watch has understated class defined by a vintage feel, in its case shape and mesh worked bracelet. Each Tissot watch is presented in beautiful presentation box to add to the wow factor you are looking for.

Our next pick has become a bit of a standard bearer for Swiss Chronograph watches. The amount of watch you get for your money is so good that this design from Tissot has almost become a classic. For a gents Tissot to give to someone, we could not recommend the PRC200 Quartz Chronograph Watch more.

Thomas Sabo

What would Valentine’s Day be without love hearts? The official symbol of love is a simple but treasured one. The moment someone unwraps a beautiful piece of jewellery designed as a love heart, no words need to be spoken, the symbol says exactly what you want it to say, and the receiver can take your love with them wherever they go.

Anklets have seen a rise in popularity and finding something for your partner that is unique is sometimes difficult. A quality sterling silver anklet could be a great alternative. The fashionable Thomas Sabo Pave Heart Anklet features a cubic zirconia heart that will look fabulous shown off in the spring and summer seasons.

Staying simple is never a bad option, a piece of jewellery you could wear everyday maximises the usage of the gift and we think these earrings are great design. The Thomas Sabo Open Heart Earrings are a tasteful usage of the love heart to wear day in day out.

Hugo Boss  – BOSS Watches

Founded in 1923, Hugo Boss has a reputation for its cutting-edge style, contemporary and trend-setting design and masculine overtones. Its impressive collection of watches, which sits in the middle of the price bracket, embodies classic features and is built with the brand’s signature style.

One highlight for men is the Master Stainless Steel Bracelet Watch. This stunning watch, emphasises a classic look, displaying a mixture of polished and satin stainless steel with an all-white textured face. The timepiece is water resistant, has a simple quartz movement and requires minimal upkeep.

Or if you want to go all out for the woman in your life, choose the spectacular 36mm Diamonds For Her Mother Of Pearl Bracelet Watch.

Olivia Burton

Founded by best friends Jemma and Lesa, who met on their first day at the London College of Fashion, this a British accessories brand that combines influences from vintage, fashion and nature, while pushing the boundaries to create unique and striking styles. The collection of jewellery and watches boasts stunning floral patterns alongside vintage style to make truly special and affordable pieces.

One highlight from the range is the Marble Floral Lilac & Rose Gold Watch. This stunning timepiece, which is powered by a three-hand quartz movement, features blossoming floral motifs across a white marble effect dial, enhanced with the contrast of a soft and smooth leather strap.  

Also from the collection this Christmas is the 3D Bee Open Rose Gold Bangle, a delicate piece made with an 18k rose gold-plated finish. This unique bangle showcases the company’s signature bee motif at each end, with an open-ended design that can be pressed or expanded to fit the wrist.


One of the world’s most famous and prestigious luxury fashion houses, the Italian designer creates stunning statement designer jewellery and, back in 1972, became one of the first brands to move into timepieces. Made in Switzerland, it is the marriage of Swiss manufacturing and Italian flair that makes Gucci’s watches stand out, combining tradition with innovation and craftsmanship.

One of the newer pieces of the Gucci’s jewellery collection are the popular Gucci Trademark Stud Earrings. The lady in your life will feel like she’s straight off the catwalk with these simple and slick, yet fabulously effective, stud earrings, which are all about showing off that iconic Gucci logo.  

If you really want to go all out to impress that special person in your life this Christmas, the stunning stainless steel G-Timeless Automatic Onyx Dial Bracelet Watch, aimed at both men and women, could be the answer.

The stunning collection is a celebration of Welsh landscapes and heritage, beautifully crafted, yet affordable, with pieces offered in gold, rose gold and silver.    

Our favourite affordable choice from the range is the beautiful Butterfly Affinity Beaded Bracelet. Part of Clogau’s Affinity collection, this elegant bracelet is crafted from sterling silver and rose gold, set off by a beautiful butterfly and amethyst.

A little more extravagant is the Tree of Life Cross Pendant. From Clogau’s Tree of Life collection, which acts as a metaphor to describe the relationship of all life on Earth, the beautifully intricate pendant is crafted in sterling silver and rose gold and includes designs of berries, leaves and vines.

Gucci GRIP

The fashion industry seems to have gone Gucci mad over the last four years. Alessandro Michele’s appointment as Gucci’s creative director, has driven the brand in a direction that many would not have expected, especially those who were more accustomed to the brand famous for ‘boutique brown’ and gold with dashes of the Italian flag. Despite anyone’s opinion Gucci have without doubt become an even bigger powerhouse in the fashion world.

Alessandro’s vision is certainly not conservative with his designs, a 70’s-esque feel with wild colours and patterns has grown this megabrand. Gucci is no longer just a fashion brand, it’s a symbol, a statement, it’s an adjective word! The latest design straight from the 70’s that is sure to be the hottest fashion led watch for Christmas is the ‘Gucci Grip’

The Skateboard Design.

Two Gucci Grip Styles to Show Diversity

The name explains a lot, the Grip is meant to replicate the grip on the top of a skateboard. The lined pattern featuring the ‘GG’ logo is a representation of the grip, though not all models feature this pattern some are more understated in design.

One thing that is used throughout is the distinctive case that is not quite squared and not quite round, but certainly has a recognisable look, again, another subtle nod to a skateboards design. Alessandro has been pushing for more gender fluid designs and this watch will be the first truly gender-neutral watch to come from the brand. 

A New Way to View the Time.

Without question, one element that has people talking is the three-window element to the case. Rather than an encompassing glass, it’s hard to argue if the watch even has a dial at all. But what it does have is three windows, to represent what you actually use a watch for, to tell the time and date. The top window is minutes, middle is hours and a lower window for the date.

Even the font on the numerals has a retro feel to it – almost digital like, but this watch is certainly not a Japanese digital movement; the same movement that took over the watch world in the 70’s and 80’s. True to Gucci’s luxury form, this watch houses a Swiss made quartz movement. All of Gucci’s watches are made in Switzerland; the home of luxury watches and movements.

Match Your Vibe

Are you a strap or a bracelet wearer? Well the great news is the ‘GRIP’ comes in many styles with both hand-stitched leather straps and adjustable bracelets. The first line of watches is expected to be the first of many, as Gucci will surely develop the Grip further.

Currently you can choose your combination of patterned or plain cases in both 316L surgical grade steel in its natural silver colour or a gold pvd finish. Then you can combine with your choice of matching bracelet or an alligator leather strap in green or bordeaux burgundy.

An Original Iconic Piece.

One question we are asking ourselves is, do we have a truly iconic watch in our midst? As Gucci continues to break the rules of fashion and grow, no one can argue at this moment in time, that Gucci are the number one trend setters in the world. So, with this first batch of Gucci Grips, could you be buying into a revered iconic watch, that will be more sought after from Gucci aficionados in the future?

Very few watches make us think this way, but because the Grip is so distinctive and no other luxury brand is producing anything like this, it’s certainly is worth the question.

More information and purchasing details can be found on the individual listing for the Gucci grip via this link.

Introducing The Oris Big Crown ProPilot X Calibre 115

Since Baselword 2019, we along with many Oris stockists have been tight lipped about the arrival of the latest and greatest in-house movement watch to be introduced by Oris. As per usual, a standard meeting on Oris’s impressive stand in the Basel convention hall of Messe Basel was set up with the Swiss watchmakers founded in 1904. Unusually this year we were whisked away into a dark room void of light, with our laptops and mobiles confiscated. After a short introduction, a VR headset was affixed to our heads and a full 360-degree immersive video was played to us as we wandered around the inside of the latest movement from Oris. Now this may sound strange and it was, but the combination of this awe-inspiring cinemaphotography along with the dramatic music was captivating.

It has now been six months since we were first introduced to this watch, with an embargo finally being lifted we, along with the rest of the watch community can talk about possibly the most interesting watch to be released in 2019.

The Concept

In total, around two years Oris have been developing the ‘ProPilot X Calibre 115’, a watch Oris are so excited about they have gone as far as to declare this watch as “the most Oris watch we’ve ever made – every watch that went before it has led us to this point.” So, what is so unique about this timepiece?

This watch has taken Oris’s current in-house movement concept of a patented 10-day power-reserve and skeletonised it down to a form where everything is laid bare for all to see. A skeleton watch is not unusual but the way Oris have produced this concept with their calibre 115 certainly is.

The Calibre 115 Movement

A hand-wound movement with a 10-day power reserve operated through the single crown of the watch is the technology Oris created to celebrate their 110th anniversary. Since then extra complications have been added to this now base movement of the ‘calibre 110’ to evolve the collection at a greater rate, with this year being the linear introduction of the calibre 115. To strip back a full movement to a skeletonised version is no mean feat, let alone to the degree in what Oris have accomplished.

The main issue with carving away at the full movement to make every element as visible as possible, is that you may take the risk of compromising the structural integrity of the movement. With this being said, Oris have done an amazing job of opening up this movement to the degree they have. My main visual delight that I take away is that of the barrell at 12 o’clock position is skeletonised so you can see the extended mainspring that is normally completely encased.

Winding the crown, now you watch on as the mainspring coils tighter… and tighter… until its fully wound. Normally a mainspring in a watch is small as you would imagine, with any mechanical watch movement, but the mainspring used to effectively be the 10-day power reserve in this movement is nearly gargantuan and now you can see the coil and appreciate the greatness of this patented technology as it ever so slowly unwinds, looking different at each glance.

The look Of The ProPilot X

The first pilots watch with Oris’s famous ‘big crown’ was introduced in 1917, since then the big crown has lent itself to Oris’s history in many forms. Ease of use and readability is vital to a pilot’s watch, certainly in the days of turboprop planes, before technology passed from being a distraction to a must have, hence the big crown, but the evolution of this line of watch has come to the first Oris Big Crown watch to feature no numerals, to greatly enhance the hollowed out movement.

A multipiece 44mm titanium case looks and feels raw as each part is not polished or faceted or as Oris put it “No flashy colour palette. No pointless complications. It’s essential, It’s crafted, It’s alive.” I love this concept because if you want to produce an outstanding movement at a great price point for haute horology enthusiasts, then let the movement be the focal point, allow the wearer to appreciate the craftsmanship, luxury doesn’t have to be ostentatious.

If you prefer understated and workmanship or are big believers in Oris’s moto of ‘Go Your Own Way’ then this watch may be the luxury collectors watch, you have been looking for. Limited deliveries of this special timepiece are expected for 2019 with only around 40 arriving in the UK, to which we have secured two. For all enquires please contact us for more information or book an in-store appointment for a private viewing of the ProPilot X 115 via this link.

2019 Special-edition Tag Heuer Indy 500 watch


Switzerland is home to the most prestige watch and jewellery show in the world, Baselworld. The annual event invites luxury watch brands such as TAG Heuer, Rolex, Gucci, Oris, Tudor, Citizen and many more to promote their latest innovation over the course of a week. Baselworld 2019 saw TAG Heuer unveil many new timepieces to their every growing portfolio; including the reinvention of the Autavia and the introduction of a 36mm ladies’ Carrera’s. Another watch reinvented and hitting our stores today in preparation for the 103rd motor-race is the Special Edition Indy 500.

Created with motor sport in mind; I anticipate that racing enthusiasts all over the world will be dying to get their hands on this special edition timepiece, whether as a memento of the Indy 500 event or just as an everyday watch. Special edition means this timepiece will be in short production and given TAG Heuer’s prestige motor-racing history the watch is sure to sell out.


What is the Indy 500?




Indy 500 is the nickname given to the world-famous motor-race the ‘Indianapolis 500’; which occurs on Memorial Day Bank Holiday weekend in America. The weekend is arguably the most paramount in motor-racing due to the Monaco grand prix and the Coca Cola 600 also occurring on the same day. Including 33 drivers and 500 miles, the race is part of the Indy car series for which TAG Heuer are the official timekeepers, the objective is to record the fastest lap.


Why are TAG Heuer so synonymously connected to motor racing?




TAG Heuer, previously ‘Heuer’ have since the early 1900’s been somewhat involved in the world of racing. One of their most decisive moments in history was 1950; when Heuer produced the worlds first miniature electronic timekeeping device – accurate to within 1 / 1000th of a second and used by many racing professionals of the time.

A famed history with motor-racing has earned TAG Heuer a great amount of respect from many recognisable racing heroes including Ayrton Senna and Clay Regazzoni and is why today, TAG Heuer is seen branded throughout many motor races across the world; including the Indy 500.


The design




Taking form in the shape of the ever-loved Formula One, the collection includes advanced technology inspired by the extreme performance of the F1 teams and is worn by champion drivers across the world. Cutting edge ceramic material ensures the watch is comfortable enough for everyday life whilst also being tough enough to take on the most extreme races in the world.

One of the most interesting aspects of the timepiece would be a part which cannot be seen by others. The modified case back holds a commemorative tribute to the 103rd Indy 500 race which is exclusive to this model and will not be re-produced.

Differently to the previous special edition, the watch has a black dial and tachymeter which is enhanced through red and white detailing. Also exclusive to this watch is an Indy 500 plaque and card with the recently renovated TAG Heuer watch box packaging.

Her other passion at work is meeting new people. This has led to Jaime being the Peter Jackson the Jeweller representative at wedding fayres around West Cumbria. She loves talking to people and hearing their extravagant or unusual plans about their up and coming big day! Jaime loves sharing their excitement, helping to select their perfect rings from our Brown and Newirth Wedding ring collection and giving her own advice. It wasn’t so long ago she planned her own wedding and enjoyed a fantastic honeymoon in the Dominican Republic which was well deserved after not having a holiday for over 7 years!


Fond memories of working for Peter Jackson the Jeweller


Jaime has also experienced some fantastic events during her time with the company. Some of her favourites were ladies Night at Carlisle Race Course where the team gave out a ‘diamond card’. One of these cards actually contained a real diamond and the winner got to have this set into a piece of jewellery.

Behind the scenes Jaime has had some fantastic opportunities while on training days and trips with our brands. She has visited many of the watch houses service centres including Tag Heuer and training days spent learning in depth product knowledge to share with you.

She also looks forward to the famous Peter Jackson Christmas Parties. Each year our Christmas party has a different theme which we only find out a few weeks before. Jaime’s favourite so far was the medieval Christmas party because the guests all wore fancy dress, there was no cutlery allowed and if you tried to use cutlery a red-hot poker was put into your drink!

Interests outside of work


Jaime has an artistic flare which shows through her other hobbies such as calligraphy, card making and cross stitch. Giving her an eye for style and design which is perfectly suited to helping people select their ideal pieces of jewellery.

Jaime has a very close bond with her family which is even shown through her treasured Links of London bracelet. Each charm on it represents someone from past or present from a police hat to a bat (private joke). It is a really sentimental piece that she wears daily alongside her treasured engagement and wedding ring. However next on her list to own is a diamond set Tag Heuer link watch something she has aspired to own for a while. She loves the new design and with a special birthday around the corner she is hoping it may appear this year!

Bremont’s Armed Forces Collection


The MoD announcement from Bremont

Coming out of another successful ‘Townhouse’ in London, Bremont have announced many exciting new lines to add to their already impressive collections, but one new collection of watches has got the whole watch and jewellery industry talking.

Bremont proudly announced that they are entering into a partnership with the Ministry of Defence (MoD) honouring Her Majesty’s Armed Forces to create the ‘Armed Forces Collection’. This three-piece collection will be the first time that a civilian will be able to purchase an official Bremont Military timepiece.


What to expect from the Armed Forces Collection

Over many years Bremont have worked closely with the armed forces to produce many specially commissioned projects at the request of personnel from all branches of the British armed forces. Bremont’s reputation for producing products that are ‘tested beyond endurance’ is what makes their watches widely recognised as the go-to product for the military.

Supplying products that are fit for purpose is key, but Bremont have been recognised for their discretion and patriotism. Nick English, who co- founded the brand in 2002 with his brother Giles stated on the press release regarding this new partnership, “It is difficult to think of a more significant recognition that has been received by Bremont in the 12 years since we sold our first watch.”

Harking back to the historical past of the British military, Bremont have drawn inspiration from the original ‘Dirty Dozen’ watches as the focal point for the three new designs. We love selling products that have a story and Bremont tell the best stories in the business.


The Dirty Dozen

During World War 2, Britain’s Ministry of Defence commissioned a series of wristwatches to be issued to the British Army. Strict specification was needed for the timing to be of chronometer standard, as well as being robust in the casing that also included water proofing. One of the other key features was the need for luminous markers and with all of these features the Dirty Dozen were created, with 12 different watch brands each producing their version of the needed watch.


There are believed to be around only 20 original complete sets in the world, this is one of the most famed collection of watches in existence. You may also recognise the name from the 1960’s film The Dirty Dozen, which depicts the misadventures of 12 fictional soldiers from the war.

Taking inspiration from the designs of the original 1940’s models, Bremont have developed a new, more traditional two-piece case that features a screw in case back, that itself will show-case the collective badges of all three of the MoD services; the first ever watches to do so. Each watch manufactured in Henley-on-Thames will represent one branch of the military with nuances in design that the British watch company are famed for, that will appeal to both military personnel and civilians alike.


The Bremont Broadsword

Manufactured to the original specification of the British Army, the ‘Broadsword’ is the closest in looks to the Dirty Dozen with a sub-seconds hand sitting 6 o’clock. Simple white numerals are paired with C1 Super-LumiNova® dots and finished hands to enhance the viewing in low light. This model made from hardened steel is 40mm in diameter and equipped with a khaki green sailcloth strap and features the chronometer certified movement, Modified calibre 11 1/2’’’ BE-95-2AV.


This model is the smallest of the three MoD watches and one that we feel will be a big hit due to its fantastic price point at £2595. 40mm is a great size watch for a smaller size wrist or general comfort in day to day wear; something Bremont encourage in all their timepieces. If you have been looking for a more understated luxury watch that you can wear anywhere, anytime and in any condition, this may be the piece for you.


The Bremont Arrow

A mono-pusher chronograph is the distinguishing feature of the ‘Arrow’. The chronograph functionality is a necessity for any timed mission with this timepiece being aimed at the airman. The chronometer rated BE-51AE movement is fitted in a 42mm hardened steel case with the chronograph operated with just the one pusher that will start, stop and reset the stopwatch.


We love the RAF blue sailcloth strap that provides a touch of colour in the most fitting way. The tone of blue is recognisable to those in the know and an aspect that we feel will be loved by many RAF aficionados. The single pusher chronograph is a great old-school feature for a watch that should be used more and with this watch priced at £3595, the Arrow will rank well in the luxury watch market due its superb features great price.


The Bremont Argonaut

The diver of the three, being water resistant to 300 metres, the ‘Argonaut’ is the Naval inspired piece with its name taken from Greek mythology and synonymous with Navy history having appeared on commissioned ships for close to 250 years. Apart from the water resistance, the other key feature to this watch is the readability, especially the highly legible orange minute hand with minutes being so critical in the marine environment.


Bremont have produced many watches that feature the inner rotating bezel operated by the 4 o’clock crown, this feature is one that has proved to be popular among Bremont fans, as it adds an element of difference from so many watches that exhibit an external rotating bezel. Priced at £2795, the Argonaut is a handsome, very wearable diving watch at just 42mm in case size.



Expanding collections is a big undertaking for any watch brand, but I feel the reason to expand should be due to demand and inspiring concepts. A watch of any price let alone one in the luxury market should tell a story and therefore the story give the brand reason to produce a new collection. As a consumer who has bought into a luxury product, it is great to talk about the product and explain its existence and why it differentiates from any other product out there, I genuinely feel that Bremont products do this really well.

Bremont with this proud partnership have the perfect excuse to expand their range and tell a story and capitalise on their military experience. The military watches that they produce for many militias all over the world is a big part of their business, but for a British brand a seal of approval from the MoD is something very special.


The Armed forces collection is due to arrive in April landing in our Blackburn store, where you can pre-order now as well as online.
