    50th Anniversary Puma Bremont

    After a long wait this arrived today!! A Bremont designed to commemorate 50 years of the Puma in RAF service, I had a hand in the design of it and am over the moon with how it has turned out. Relatively subtle and well balanced and I really like the Squadron crests on the backZ

    Very nice, Ditch.

    IIRC, you have an HC2 and a CH-47 Bremont now.

    Looks good that, Iím a fan of the Bremont military editions, they seem to go a bit further than the Breitling special dials.

    Glad it arrived before the Puma is retired as well!

    Thanks, appreciate it. Unfortunately not so sure I will get to fly the old girl again but who knows, the current OSD is Ď25 so fingers crossed!

    42 is an ideal size. Two registers and a monopusher. All good features.
    I am thinking of buying one of their newer divers.
    But it is hugely disappointing that a Bremont thread has been up for two days and no one has brought up the issue of companyís origination story:-)

    That looks fantastic and I'm sure you'll only enjoy it more as time goes by.
    I love seeing the Bremont Military editions and how tastefully they are done with the subtle nods to a unit's history or heritage.
    I don't think any other brand pulls it off as well.

    Is the back cast rather than engraved? If so, that's a nice touch.

    That is a handsome watch and a very subtle commemoration piece. Some of the unit watches are really nice. They are always excellent quality.

    Iíd say the inner was cast and the outer writing engraved/etched.

    Ah, yes, that's what I meant. To have the inner part cast, that's definitely a nice touch and must be a more expensive process than everything being engraved.

    The case back is stamped and then blasted to get the finish. The lettering around the diameter is a combination of etching and laser engraving.
