    I like the looks but I don't see any sensible way to wear it other than on the underside of the wrist. On promo pics they're worn normally, though.

    Bremont does make some nice watches, but I get so tired of all their marketing malarky...

    The Armed Forces bit annoys me because itís largely meaningless.

    The Ďsole luxury watch producerí allowed to use the term amuses me, though. In my mind, the wording goes on to say that Casio is the sole non-luxury producer with the same authorisation.

    I still quite like Bremont. Itís my rebellious streak.

    Note how I didn't comment with the posting.

    I want to like them, but don't. Apart from the first Martin Baker watches (with the choice of 3 coloured case 'bands' and crowns), nothing they've done has made me look twice.
    The 'spiel' I could probably ignore for the right watch; but they do insist on putting a date window in everything.... apart from the 'Wright Flyer' which I didn't like anyway.
