The Armed Forces Collection draws inspiration from the original ‘Dirty Dozen’ watches, a series of timepieces commissioned for the British Army during WW2 when Britain’s Ministry of Defence needed watches to issue to military personnel.
The Armed Forces Collection
APPROVED BY HER MAJESTY’S ARMED FORCES. TESTED BEYOND ENDURANCE.
Bremont is proud to enter into a partnership with the Ministry of Defence (MoD) honouring Her Majesty’s Armed Forces. Through this partnership, Bremont have become the sole luxury watch producer allowed to legitimately use the signs, symbols and Heraldic Badges of all three services. This marks the first time that civilians can purchase official Bremont Military timepieces. Consequently, Bremont have released a new military inspired range of watches incorporating the emblems of the Royal Navy, British Army and the Royal Air Force. The Armed Forces Collection draws inspiration from the original ‘Dirty Dozen’ watches, a series of timepieces commissioned for the British Army during World War II when Britain’s Ministry of Defence needed watches to issue to military personnel.
Bremont Armed Forces “Ministry Of Defense” Collection Inspired By The Dirty Dozen Watches

While I can’t imagine a sweeping partnership between Bremont – Britain’s modern watchmaker with several ties to the British army – and the country’s Ministry of Defense came easily, but here we finally are, with the Armed Forces Collection: a trio of cool new military watches that come with the formal blessing of the Ministry of Defense. Unlike the many special custom limited editions that Bremont has produced for various military units over the years, these three new watches will be available for civilian purchase as well. Whereas it’s worth mentioning that these are not watches commissioned specifically by MoD for outfitting troops in combat, even still, for collectors of the famed ‘Dirty Dozen’ WWII-era watches, or just general military watch fans, it’s a pretty neat and very rare kind of partnership indeed, marking the first time a luxury watch manufacturer has been allowed to formally use the “signs, symbols and Heraldic Badges” of all three branches of Britain’s armed forces.
