The Bremont Vulcan retains the brand’s core design codes, but the new chronograph weaves in some subtle details synonymous with the historic aircraft.
The Bremont Vulcan’s matte black dial features a running seconds sub-dial at 9 o’clock with a two-tone 3-D camouflage design, and the elapsed minutes 3 o’clock counter features a nuclear symbol indicating the arsenal carried onboard.
The Avro Vulcan was a jet powered, tail-less, delta-wing, high altitude strategic bomber, operated by the Royal Air Force from 1956 until 1984. Heralded as a symbolic last defence against nuclear war, the Avro Vulcan is one of the most iconic aircraft in the RAF’s history.
Bremont celebrates this iconic symbol of British aviation and engineering with a commemorative limited edition timepiece, as a long-standing supporter and partner of His Majesty’s Armed Forces. The watch includes, elegant skeltonised cathedral minute and hour hands – a first for Bremont – which are also applied with Super-LumiNova and complemented by a striking RAF blue chronograph hand.
The back of the case is equally impressive, with an engraving of the Avro B-1 Bomber and the heraldic badge of the Royal Air Force. The case back states ‘Approved By Her Majesty’s Armed Forces’ as it was designed and approved by the Ministry Of Defence (MOD) under Her Majesty’s Reign.
