Limited to 200 pieces and based on the popular Broadsword design from the Armed Forces Collection, the Broadsword Recon Limited Edition features a new sandwich dial construction.
Rooted in Bremont’s longstanding partnership with the Ministry of Defence, the Broadsword Recon is designed as a contemporary take on the three handed ‘Dirty Dozen’ field watch design. This series of timepieces was commissioned for the British Army during World War Two, when Britain’s Ministry of Defence needed watches to issue to military personnel.

Bremont is an award-winning British company producing beautifully engineered chronometers at their headquarters in Henley on Thames, England. Time began for Bremont in 2002, when they embarked on a journey to make masterfully crafted pilot’s watches of exceptional quality. Inspired by a love of flying historic aircraft and a passion for watches and all things mechanical, Bremont’s timepieces have been tested beyond the normal call of duty.
Bremont has manufactured watches for over 400 different military units around the world and works with some of the best British engineering companies: Martin-Baker, Williams Racing, Rolls-Royce Aerospace, and Jaguar, to name a few. Their watches are the only watches to have ever gone through a live ejection testing programme! Immensely precise, reliable, and durable, Bremont’s watches are either COSC or ISO chronometer rated and are hand-built in limited numbers.
