Bremont is making a significant name for themselves in British watchmaking, going up against the Swiss juggernauts. If you need evidence of this, consider the fact that Bremont just debuted two special versions of its MBII for King Charles III’s big coronation. Bremont already has a partnership with Britain’s Ministry of Defence (MoD) to honor His Majesty’s Armed Forces. The first watch is the MBII King Charles III Limited Edition. It gets a special purple lollipop second hand, black outlined sword hands and black numerals against a white dial. For this special edition, the knurled barrel is made out of titanium versus aluminum, which lightens the watch.
Finally, the caseback features a decorative emblem that pays homage to the coronation. The second watch is a black dialed version with the purple second hand and a jet black barrel. Both limited editions get an anti-magnetic Faraday cage and an anti-shock system for the in-house Bremont Caliber BE-36AE automatic movement. As you’d expect, both watches are already sold out.
