Bremont's Limited Edition Codebreaker

  • by arobis
Bremont Watch Company and the Bletchley Park Trust are pleased to announce that they will be working together on the release of the new Bremont limited edition watch that will incorporate historical artefacts from Bletchley Park. 

The watch will be called the ‘Codebreaker’ and is unlike any other watch ever created; in addition a percentage of the proceeds will be used towards the on-going restoration of Bletchley Park.

Bletchley Park played an extremely important role in British history. During WWII it was converted into a code breaking factory and became the site of the United Kingdom’s main decryption establishment, the Government Code and Cipher School (GC&CS,) where ciphers and codes were decrypted, most famously the ciphers generated by the German Enigma and Lorenz machines.

Inspired by a classic 40’s officers watch, the ‘Codebreaker’ will be made with a beautiful and never seen before Flyback Chronograph GMT automatic movement and will incorporate some relevant historical artefacts from Bletchley Park; pine from the iconic Hut 6 (the centre of the operations to decrypt the German Wehrmacht and Luftwaffe Enigma ciphers) and paper from one of the few remaining punch cards (used to analyse the vast amount of coded data created from the daily Enigma communications). Part of the rotor of the watch will be made from the wheel of an original Enigma machine. 240 steel Codebreaker watches will be created and 50 rose gold watches.
