THE BREMONT F-14 TOMCAT WATCH AVAILABLE TO FORMER F-14 PILOTS AND RIOS ONLY
The new Bremont Tomcat special military edition is a unique and bespoke watch available to former F-14 pilots and RIOs only. In cooperation with Fighter Sweep (www.fightersweep.com), the Bremont Tomcat project is based on the Bremont MBIII, a watch thoroughly tested by ejection seat maker Martin-Baker. Based on inputs from former operators of the iconic F-14 Tomcat, the watch features numerous design elements that make it special to those who flew the jet. The F-14 planform, wings fully swept, is featured at 6 o’clock with the Tomcat Patch at 9 o’clock and famous “ANYTIME BABY” phrase at 3 o’clock. A subdued “F-14” is at 4 o’clock using the numeral 4 and the watch features the popular “Tailhook” second hand with stripes and ejection seat pull-handle. Two versions of the face are available for pilots or RIOs, with gold Navy pilot wings or NFO wings at 12 o’clock.
On the back of the watch, the bespoke rotor shows a classic F-14 weapons load of 2xAIM-54s, 2xAIM-7s, 2xAIM-9Ms and 2xGBU-12s*. The case back will also be engraved with pilot call sign or any 8 digit personal designator as well as the serial number. The watch is priced at $2,998, which includes Custom Tax and FedEx shipping to the USA, a Bremont leather strap, pin buckle and nylon military NATO strap, leather watch wallet, watch tool and three years warranty. A metal bracelet is also available for an additional cost of $395.
A 3% Handling Fee will apply to the watch price on all individual orders. Further information can be found in our terms and Conditions.
*Bespoke rotor subject to required order numbers.
