Bremont Limited-Edition Broadsword Recon Joins Its Armed Forces Collection

British watch manufacturer Bremont drops the newest addition to its Armed Forces Collection with the limited-edition Broadsword Recon. Rooted in Bremont’s long-standing partnership with Great Britain’s Ministry of Defense, the watch is inspired by the ‘Dirty Dozen’ field watch made within the last two years of World War II and issued to British servicemen.

The Broadsword Recon features a 40mm satin and polished two-piece MoD hardened stainless steel case with screw-down crown construction, matte black sandwich dial, Superluminova-coated matte black hands & numerals, seconds-subdial, date at 3 o’clock, and a domed sapphire crystal. The stainless steel case back comes stamped with all three Armed Forces Heraldic Badges and ‘Approved by Her Majesty’s Armed Forces’ text, signifying that the limited edition watch was designed and approved by the Ministry of Defense under Her Majesty’s Reign.

The watch comes with the classic two-tone 20mm striped canvas NATO strap with a stainless steel pin buckle. Buyers also have the option of choosing a complimentary Black Temple Island Rubber or Dark Brown Vintage Leather strap and three different strap lengths.

The Broadsword Recon runs on the Automatic, Bremont Modified Caliber 11 1/2’’ BE-95-2AV that has 31 Jewels, a Glucydur balance wheel, an Anachron balance spring, Nivaflex mainspring, 100m water resistance, and 38-hour power reserve.With only 200 pieces made, the Bremont Broadsword Recon Limited Edition Automatic Chronometer Watch is available now from the Bremont website for $3,695.
