Admit it, none of us here are particularly patriotic. The last time any of us did anything heroic for our country was probably filing our taxes (albeit reluctantly). But thanks to Bremont's debut of its Armed Forces Collection - in partnership with the Ministry of Defence (MoD) - now available to the wider public for the first time, we get a chance to slide into the wrists of a military man and wear the symbol with pride. Inspired by the original 'Dirty Dozen' watches, the Armed Forces collection pays homage to these timepieces with strict performance specifications that suited the needs of the war period. So a swim in the beach or a night dive at the pool? No problem, the military watch is completely waterproof. Struggling to see at a dimly lit social gathering? Piece of cake, the watch carries luminous markings on the dial that let you see even in the darkest of rooms. Or worried about scratching your watch against a hard surface? Please, the case construction is capable of withstanding heavy blows and falls. And finally, the most striking element of the watch lies in the insignia found on the case back design. While each watch from the Armed Forces has a stylish design of its own, you'll notice that they all share the three Heraldic badges belonging to the Royal Navy, the British Army and the Royal Air Force. Exclusive only to Bremont Military watches, you won't find anyone else representing the country like you do.
