When it comes to luxury watches, it’s all well and good having a timepiece from one of the world’s most respected watchmakers on your wrist but, if it’s real gravitas that you’re after, then you, sir, are going to require a limited edition luxury timepiece. Now, I’m not saying that the limited edition watch that you have to buy is the Bremont Victory above, truth be told, it probably should be this one.

Bremont are one of the world’s most revered watchmakers and they are particularly famous for their selection of limited edition timepieces. One of the cornerstones of their limited edition selection is unquestionably that of the Bremont Victory watch and it is definitely a mightily impressive timepiece, ideally suited to any horology aficionado. Made with original parts of HMS Victory, which was Lord Admiral Nelson’s flagship vessel at the Battle of Trafalgar, it’s fair to say that there is a pretty impressive backstory behind the piece. Also boasting sapphire crystal glass casing, 46 hour power reserve, 18ct gold rose gold case and a Swiss-made automatic movement. All in all, it’s a jolly good egg.

It’s always good to have a bit of a backstory to go along with your luxury watch and few can boast one quite as impressive as the Bremont Victory watch. HMS Victory is the oldest warship anywhere in the world that is still in commission as it was originally launched in 1765 and, as we now know, famously went on to be an integral part of the Battle of Trafalgar.

The Bremont Victory watches, of which there is only a limited amount, use parts of the timber and copper from the original HMS Victory so each one is utterly unique due to it having components from different parts of the original vessel. It truly is a jaw-dropping timepiece and one that any luxury watch aficionado would certainly consider one of the finest on the market lofty price-tag.

Far more than just being a great talking point, this exemplary watch has definitely made waves in the luxury watch industry and certainly serves as another feather in Bremont’s already heavily feathered cap.

Did you ask for the price? Get ready for this… it approximately £20,000.
