ABTW: What was your first grail watch?
Aside from a feature set including Bremont's first flyback chronograph and a GMT complication, the Codebreaker serves as a tribute to Bletchley Park, home to Britain's WWII code-breaking force. Bletchley Park had a profound impact on the outcome of WWII and thanks to great minds like Alan Turing and successfully decrypted code from the German Enigma and Lorenz machines. Each Bremont Codebreaker incorporates actual artifacts from Bletchley Park, such as the serial number which is taken from a punch card used to process information during the war. Furthermore, the Codebreaker's winding rotor incorporates metal from an actual German Enigma machine and the crown is capped with a pine insert taken from the floor of Bletchley Park's famed Hut 6. The mere fact that a watch like the Codebreaker even exists is wild and it may be the absolute coolest way to own a piece of WWII history. Price is ,500.

Perhaps the two greatest difficulties linked to skeletonization are, for one, the fact that it is an irreversible process, meaning that once material has been removed it can never be replaced again, and two, that it results in highly complex aesthetics that can easily make any design look overly busy and unpleasant to the eye. It is much like tight-rope walking, where maintaining the balance between the amount of the removed and remaining material is as important as finding the best mixture of highly modified designs and basic values, such as legibility and timelessness. In essence, it is a science all to itself, a process that necessitates extremely careful planning and all the more accurate execution.
