The Bremont Tornado IDS watch available to Tornado operators and direct support personnel of the GR1/4 aircraft
The new Bremont Tornado Interdictor/Strike (IDS) watch project is a unique and bespoke set of two watches available to operators and direct support personnel of the UK’s GR1/4 aircraft since its first flight in 1980. The first model is based on the MBIII timepiece, the second smaller model is based on the Solo37 timepiece. Both designs feature ‘GR1’ at 1 o’clock, ‘GR4’ at 4 o’clock, the aircraft silhouette with full GR roll equipment and wings swept to 67 degrees at 6 o’clock along with the date ‘1982-2019’ to mark the period of front line service. Featured at 9 o’clock is the Tornado Force logo. On the reverse of the MBIII timepiece, a custom rotor featuring ‘TORNADO’ can be seen through the open exhibition case back.
The Tornado IDS MBIII model is priced at £2,275 and the Solo37 model is priced at £1,540. Both prices include UK VAT and shipping within the UK. The MBIII model includes one calfskin leather strap fitted with a pin buckle and a Nylon NATO. The Solo37 model includes one calfskin leather strap fitted with a pin buckle and one Temple Island Rubber strap. Both models will feature a personal engraving (up to 8 digits) and watch serial number engraved on the case back and will be provided with a Bremont leather watch wallet, Bremont watch tool and a three years’ warranty. It is possible to purchase the metal bracelet for an additional £295 (retail £575). Our equivalent civilian models retail at £4,195 (MBIII) and £2,695 (Solo37).
A 3% handling will be applied to the watch price on all individual orders. Further information can be found in our Terms and Conditions.

To register your interest…
This unique Tornado GR watch has been designed by 2 current members of the Tornado Force. There is an additional £25 added to the price of each watch. This is to fund a collective charitable donation to the RAF100 charity; a collaboration of the RAF Benevolent Fund, Royal Air Forces Association, RAF Charitable Trust Enterprises and RAF Museum.
