There aren’t many in the jewelry industry who can say they’ve met HRH the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton.

The Bremont watch brand is among the lucky few who have. Earlier this week, co-founder Nick English was at Bletchley Park to help the heritage site celebrate the completion of its restoration, allowing visitors to see what it was like for codebreakers working at Government Code and Cypher School during World War II.

There, he presented Middleton with the brand’s limited-edition “Codebreaker” watch.
