HMS Victory’s legacy will remain timeless – thanks to a new limited edition watch.

Bremont Watch Company has been working with the National Museum of the Royal Navy to design the watch using original parts of the iconic ship.

Oak timber and copper from the original ship is included in the watch. Part of the proceeds from each watch will go towards the refurbishment and preservation of the ship. Bremont founder Giles English said: ‘Nelson went to my school and as a boy he always fascinated me. I remember clearly the first time I visited HMS Victory. Not only did we want to make the watch unique but we also want it to be a horological masterpiece.’

Giles Gould, from the museum, said: ‘We take any relationship such as this very seriously and we have to be very confident that both HMS Victory and Nelson will be honoured correctly.’
