    This is a simple process - send it back to Bremont HQ in Henley, and they can do it for you. They currently charge 155.

    Martin, from Germany, 49. When I got my Z/LG used in 2009 nobody here ever heard of Bremont.

    Here it is, have been wearing it 24/7, but with a dark grey dial for the last 5 years. Love Bremont watches but not in the salary class to own more than one.

    Hi Shedlock, welcome to the forum. That's a solid Rolex you've got there - a classic!

    What would you like Bremont-wise? Anything that catches your eye in particular?

    Hi J!

    Hmmm, I am testing the water here. I tried on a ZT-51 at Heathrow and rather liked the faded hands and brown strap. But I am also toying with a WT/BK or the MBIII OR. I was going to post a thread here asking fro some advice from the gang (who have all the experience!).

    I like something more subtle, but with with some 'show' to it -- GMT and date are pretty much a must. I am pretty hard on my watches: I was an Army engineer by trade (Lt. R.E.M.E.), though I study and teach Philosophy now (after driving trucks and farming for 10 years), a kayaker, a Land Rover enthusiast -- I even lift at the gym wearing my watch; but I also like to suit up from time to time, and so I want something with a touch of class. I am also die-hard British (hence my desire to move to a British watch manufacturer) and am interested in letting my 16753 go for something from Bremont that does all the things..... It definitely has to be a black (or dark) dial -- though it can have bits of colour. Most importantly, it has to be a blend of sophistication, 'prettiness', and ruggedness.

    What are your thoughts?

    BTW, thanks for the welcome! This seems like a great forum and a good bunch of people! I look forward to mingling with the rabble!

    Hi All,

    I hope I'm not too late to the party: late 40's, two children (B/G), and an expat living in Washington DC, with about 20 years of public sector work between the military and civilian government service.

    I wear a BR 126 Vintage Chronograph GMT, but looking to trade up to a Codebreaker I hope!!



    Regards,
    Argo
