The Bremont Vulcan is a mono-pusher chronograph that is if we’re being honest, a nice change for the company. The watch commemorates the Avro Vulcan which, as Bremont notes, was a pretty impressive aircraft:

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. As a long-standing supporter and partner of His Majesty’s Armed Forces, Bremont celebrates this iconic symbol of British aviation and engineering with a commemorative limited edition timepiece. 

The watch features a clever camo pattern on the running seconds and a radioactive symbol on the minutes register.

Bremont Vulcan Watch: Power

The watch runs Bremont’s BE-51AE chronometer movement with 56 hours of power reserve. It also comes with “a set of cufflinks containing material from the original airframe of Avro Vulcan XH558 ‘Spirit of Great Britain’, the final Vulcan in military service.” Pretty cool.

The watch is large. It is 42mm in diameter and is 14.9 mm thick. It is, in fact, one of the biggest watches I’ve seen from Bremont in a while. That said, it wears quite comfortable and even the big crown isn’t too obtrusive. It comes on a very stiff canvas and leather cam strap.

Bremont has long been focused on primarily aviation-themed watches and this is one of their best. I was pleasantly surprised when I got to see it in person although, due to its monochrome design, you might be underwhelmed by the overall design. That said, it’s a solid contender and it works surprisingly well as a counterpoint to UK-based Graham aviator watches. Bremont’s understatement and care here is very interesting and definitely worth a look.

The watch is available at retailers for a brisk $4,795.00. That said, it’s a beautiful piece with a manufacture movement and if you love the Avro Vulcan or British aviation in general, you’ll probably want to take this thing for a spin.
