Bremont evoke a wide range of reactions. I have two of them, for very different reasons. I have the Bamford S500, becasue I'm a Bamford fanboy and I like the color scheme. It's as shallow as that 😀
However, the Martin Baker has proven to be, by far and away, the toughest tool watch I own. It's been climbing, frozen (Greenland!), worn while competing in multiple multi-day desert races in Morocco, Tunisia and UAE (in 'Hermione', our Polaris XP1000, pictured - think 120Km/h sandblaster), used while drilling, cutting, felling and tile cutting, dropped, bashed, beaten and abused.
It still keeps time to within 6 seconds after 8 years, and although I swapped out the aluminium case ring (sandblasted!!), the steel case parts are, as yet, unmarked other than superficial scratches.
So, although Bremont evoke strong feelings - the MB does exactly what it says on the tin - extreme tool watch, and I love it.
