For strong readability and fuss-free design reliability, arrows have black dial with printed white Arabic numerals, simple stick to hand for hours and minutes, center chronograph for seconds hand, and a two-register chronograph layout provides running seconds at 9, 30 minute timing counters at 3, and good execution dates displayed at 6.
If this is the first time you see an arrow, you may miss that there is no stopwatch button at 4 o ‘clock, which is usually the replica watches reset button. This is because the arrow is a single-pointer chronograph, so you only have one button to start, pause, and reset the chronograph. Far from being common at this price point, the use of the monopusher feature makes the arrows more specific than the usual 7750-based chronograph, as well as easier and more intuitive to use.
Inside the box and with its solid steel back, we found the bremont be-51ae, which was based on Sellita’s SW510 MP motion. Using 27 gems and providing 48 hours of power reserve, the SW510 is 4 hz, and is equipped with a brammont custom rotor design. Be-51ae is cosc certified (ISO 3159), which is usually true for the Bremont movement.
Made of a domed, anti-reflective sapphire crystal, the arrow is waterproof to 100 metres and comes with a great raf blue canvas strap. Bremont’s watchbands are always well made (which is good because they don’t usually offer bracelets), offering a wide variety of materials and colors that offer a range of really well-made choices. Flipping the arrow, we found a solid steel back decorated with her majesty’s armed forces insignia.
The green arrows tied to my wrists give a modern, clean, capable feel, but not a lack of character. As you might expect, this watch is designed for high-stress situations and is easy to spot in any light (lume is pretty bright). Its size is really wearable, and while I love this brand of luggage, I barely notice it disappear when the arrow is on my wrist.
Let’s face it, military-style watches are often a mixed bag, some are too difficult to pull historically designed, while others lean toward these kinds of replica rolex watches. We expect to see movies of super soldiers in some particular action feel destined to distract Spike TV. . Thankfully, the arrow is neither. The watch feels like a modern sports watch, and it can actually be used for a variety of purposes, including driving everything from black hawks full of warriors to pickup trucks full of kids.
Continuing with the same format as the machete, the arrows provide a price point that may surprise some. Priced at $4,745, it is a handsome military chronograph with a uniaxial timing device and a sturdy steel case, making it invaluable. Regardless of its value, the $5,000 watch is filled with competition from IWC, TAG Heuer, Tudor, Omega, Breitling and other major brands. It’s a tough field, no doubt, but if you want a do-it-yourself option from a growing brand of fanatics, arrow is a good example of brammont’s strengths.
