Bremont have a rugby themed, RFU 150 model out for 2021, here’s the details from the press office;
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 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). This 43mm wide watch, with a domed sapphire crystal has a 500m depth rating, which makes it a serious dive watch. We love the Twickenham detail at the 6pm position too – nice touch.
See what we did there? Ok, it’s priced at £3995. I’ll get my coat…
“It was an incredibly proud moment for me when I first saw Bremont timekeeping presiding over play at Twickenham, both an iconic stadium and an English institution. It has obviously been an incredibly challenging year for sport but not being able to enjoy sport in the same way has certainly highlighted its importance for so many.”
