Commercially available only from Mk III onwards and between 2014 and 2016, the Vanguard is offered in stainless steel, titanium and bronze, each with multiple dial configurations, and later releases had their Mk III status embossed on the crowns.
The Bronze Vanguard, our first model using bronze cases, was released in 2015. It was also our first model to be offered with the Roman dial, a tribute to the Italian origins of the Vanguard's source of inspiration. The 'Bronzo' became an instant favorite amongst collectors and further cemented our reputation for tool watches.
Released in 2017, the Mk IV Vanguard had markedly improved build quality and darkness visibility. The first Mk IV models, which had 42mm cases, featured the SuperSandwich™ dial that's filled to the brim with Swiss Super-LumiNova, to achieve the best darkness visibility ever on a Gruppo Gamma timepiece.
