Sponsored Article: Bremont have partnered with Watch Advice and we have our top 5 picks from the brand for this Father’s Day!
Father’s Day comes around fast each year and kind of sneaks up on you. And if you’re a Dad who’s into watches, or your Dad is, and you’re not sure what to get him, or what to put on your wish list, then we’ve some great suggestions from our friends at Bremont to help you out. Here are our top 5 Bremont watches at a range of price points for your consideration.
The Broadsword Bronze is a great entry level watch and for the Dad who wants something a little different in his collection. Part of the Armed Forces collection, Bremont is the only luxury brand to be able to use the insignias and symbols of the British Armed Forces and the Ministry of Defence. The Broadsword bears the HMAF (His Majesty’s Armed Forces) insignia on the dial indicating this, which is a cool element no other current production watch will have.
At 40mm, it will look good on most wrists, and the green dial makes the whole piece stand out. The bronze is a great golden colour and will patina nicely over time, so making each piece unique in it’s own right. With a 38 hour power reserve, classic military looks and 100m water resistance, it’s the perfect watch to wear daily.
The Martin Baker II is named after the ejection seat manufacturer who supplies about 70% of the world’s ejection seats for their military aircraft. Bremont and Martin Baker have had a very close working relationship since 2007, and the MB collection is the only watch collection in the world that is Ejection Seat tested, designed for pilots and worn by many fighter units across the world.
The MBII in orange is a vibrant and fun version of the watch, and with a soft rubber strap and flat case back, the 43mm watch wears well. The white and orange stands out, so it’s not for the Dad who wants to fly under the radar at all, and being chronometer certified, shock resistant and water resistant to 100m, it’s a robust watch that can handle all that life throws at it.
The Supermarine is Bremont’s divers watch, worn by some very well know adventurers like Kristin Harila who’s recently set the world record for summiting the worlds 14 highest peaks over 8000m in a little over 3 months! This Supermarine is the Chronograph version and is a robust watch designed for purpose, with the added functionality of the GMT, making it a highly versatile sports watch.
At 43mm and 16mm thick, it’s a larger wearing watch, but this isn’t meant to be a dress watch. The rubber strap is comfortable and suited to whatever you throw at it, and the watch is pure fun on your wrist – perfect for the Dad who loves to travel and adventure overseas!
Speaking to Giles English, co-founder of Bremont, earlier this year, we spoke about the newly released Fury – part of Bremont’s new H1 series with their Bremont assembled movement and his take on the Fury is “an aviation styled watch that can be worn from beach to the boardroom”. And he’s not wrong!
The Fury in both black and blue variants are designed to be both dressed up and down. At a perfectly wearable 40mm, screw down crown, 100m water resistance and 65hr power reserve, with an indicator that sits nicely at 6 o’clock on the dial, the Fury is both sports and dress watch all in one. And the textured dial is something that needs to be seen up close and personal.
The Audley is a nice understated dress watch and named after Bremont’s first flagship Boutique in Mayfair. Like the Fury, this piece has Bremont’s H1 generation movement in it with a 65hr power reserve visible on the dial. The silver dial combined with the brown leather strap gives the Audley that classic dress watch look that can be paired with any formal attire.
With a 40mm steel case that’s less than 13mm thick, it wears well and will slip under most shirt and jacket cuffs, perfect if you or your Dad is an office worker. The blue seconds and power reserve hands provide a pop of colour contrasting against the silver dial and with a screw down crown and 100m water resistance, it’s not like other dress watches that can only handle splashes of water. It’s a great option for those dads who want something a little more formal in their life!
So there you have it. 5 great watch choices from Bremont that will surely put a smile on your Dad’s face, or maybe yours if you get your wish.
