As Official Timing Partner to both England Rugby and Twickenham Stadium, Bremont commemorates the 150th anniversary of the Rugby Football Union (RFU) with the release of its Limited Edition RFU 150 watch.
Limited to only 150 pieces, the new timepiece honours this veritable milestone in British sporting history.Bremont was honoured to have announced its partnership with the RFU in 2020, a partnership which has seen the British watch company delivering all of Twickenham stadium’s official time-related match day content, including branded match clocks around the stadium. To kick off the partnership Bremont produced the well-received Rose timepiece prior to the Guinness Six Nations 2020 and is thrilled to be extending its offering with the new RFU 150 to mark this historic occasion.
The anniversary timepiece encompasses all the qualities on which the partnership was founded, namely the shared values of durability, precision, and technical ability. The Bremont RFU 150 features a chronograph movement with 24h GMT hand as well as the Bremont patented protective anti-shock movement mount. The 43mm satin and polished stainless steel case is fitted with a uni-directional rotating blue ceramic bezel and features an automatic helium escape valve and crown protector. The bezel also allows keen timekeepers to keep an eye on the match playing time with indicators showing the approach of half/full time in red and any extra-time added on in white. The dial is inspired by the blue tone of the England rugby team alternative kit and the inner dial ring is proudly stamped ‘Twickenham’.
The case also comes protected by the brand’s legendary patented anti-shock movement mount, an automatic helium escape valve and a crown protector to assist in a water resistance of 500 metres. Protected within the Bremont RFU 150 Limited Edition is the BE-93-2AV automatic movement, a COSC-certified chronometer calibre with 21 Jewels, a Glucydur balance, Anachron balance spring, and a Nivaflex mainspring. Alongside its classic central hands for hours, minutes and seconds, date window at 3 o’clock and 24 hour GMT hand, the mechanical movement delivers a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour and a healthy power reserve of 42 hours.
The closed case back features the RFU’s new, specially designed, Heritage Rose emblem celebrating the anniversary, taking inspiration from the first rose that featured on the players’ caps from 1871 (and still does today).
