Bremont Watch Company announced the Codebreaker Flyback Chronograph GMT, a limited edition new chronograph inspired by the Bletchey Park code-breaking centre where ciphers and codes of several Axis countries - and Germany in particular - were decrypted during World War Two.
This Flyback Chronograph GMT movement, with perlage and blued screwed decoration, offers 46 hours of power reserve. The automatic rotor is inspired by the Bombe machine invented by the British mathematician Alan Turing and incorporates parts from the wheel of an original German Enigma machine. The "code"on the rotor is the mesh of the names Bremont and Turing.
The side of the 43 mm diameter case - water resistant to 100 mt - is characterized by the limited edition number using paper from one of the few remaining punch cards used at Bletchey Park to analyse the vast amount of coded data created from the daily Enigma communications.
Bremont will make 240 stainless steel and 50 rose gold versions of the Codebreaker.
A percentage of the proceeds will be used towards the ongoing restoration of Bletchley Park.
