ARMISTICE 1918 We will remember them

Limited to 1918 Timepieces

This limited edition of 1918 numbered watches highlights those French soldiers who fought valiantly for our freedom.

Behind its sleek design and unalterable symbols, the "Armistice 1918" watch tells the story of that unique day of November 11, 1918, which ended the war. This mistress of time is now the legacy of our past.

A watch worn by the French president

This mistress of time perfectly characterizes the Genesis of Col&MacArthur and symbolizes the heritage of our past, through this particular day that marked the end of the war.

This precious watch was given to Allied leaders, especially during the commemoration ceremony of the hundredth anniversary of the armistice. We especially remember the French President Emmanuel Macron because we received a letter of thanks signed by his hand following this present.

The First World War, commonly known as the Great War, began for the Belgians on August 4, 1914, when Germany invaded Eastern Belgium. This conflict will last exactly 1,560 days. Nearly 10 million people of all nationalities will die during this war.

On the night of November 10-11, 1918, at 5 am, Allies and German generals met with Marshal Ferdinand Foch in the forest of Compiègne, near Paris to sign the Armistice. For the ceasefire on the battlefield, it was necessary to wait 6 hours after the signature causing the death of 800 more soldiers.


The signing of the Armistice took place at 5 o'clock in car N°2419 D of the International Sleeper Car Company, also the headquarters of the French armed forces during the war.


Until 1915, the new recruits denoted former Poilus (soldier) by their brand new uniform entirely blue horizon. Thus the Poilus nicknamed these young soldiers, rarely reaching the age of 20, the blueberries, also in homage to the flower of the blueberry which, next to the poppy, was the only surviving on the battlefield.

Thus, in 1916, this flower inspired the famous poem «Bleuets de France» by Abbé Alphonse Bourgoin, who served notoriously for propaganda purposes and became the symbol of commemoration in France.


These here, these little "Bleuets"

These Bleuets the color of the sky,

Are beautiful, cheerful, stylish,

Because they are not afraid.

Merrily, go forward

Go on, my friends, so long!

Good luck for you, little "blues"

Little "bleuets," you are our hope!


Although the Armistice was established, the battle did not end definitively until 6 hours later, leaving 800 more soldiers to perish.

At 10:50 am, ten minutes before the armistice actually came into effect, Augustin Trébuchon (A.T.) was the last Poilu fallen on the Lozère Shepherd battlefield mobilized in 1914, soldier of 1st class, He was shot in the head while carrying a message to his captain. He was 40 years old.

Excited to receive it, in addition to a very fast and respected delay, the box is simply superb, like the watch. For my part, an armistice 1918. The strap is top with a perfect fastening system.

I have only one thing left to do, recommend Col&MacArthur!

I think this watch is splendid and makes sense! It reminds me that we have nothing to complain about.  We are not on the landing beaches in this murderous madness of the time! 

I can quietly admire it every day and not forget the sacrifice of all these heroes.

Please know that I am always attentive and curious about your new productions, perhaps a little too focused on military commemorations (certainly, there was the Moon March, which is indeed an exceptional event!).

I have the 11 November watch and I wear it with pleasure every day. You could usefully diversify the models according to exceptional personalities. I guess the commercial model is more delicate and the commercial risk greater.

In any case, I pay tribute to you.

Yours sincerely.

A really great experience! Col&MacArthur answers our questions quickly, the follow-up is rather good and the watch looks good. My "Armistice 1918" is light and comfortable to wear. A first with a butterfly type bracelet, it is rather pleasant once on the wrist.

I would highly recommend this brand without hesitation!

I subscribe to BBC history magazine and had admired the 1918 Armistice Commemorative watch on the back cover all year.  In November I used the live chat feature and spoke to someone at Col & McArthur.  They noted how late is was for them (it was 10pm in Ontario Canada) but went on to tell me how significant this timepiece was especially for a Canadian.  George Price was the last soldier from the British Empire (or Commonwealth) to give his life at 10:48 am on 11/11/18.  So many lives were lost for nothing that day leading up to the agreed upon ceasefire time of 11 am.  George didn't have the best life leading up to the war but because of his bad timing is remembered where many are not.  I was sold and ordered my watch.  I receive many compliments on it and always tell the story of George Price to the admirers.

I purchased a commemorative Armistice 1918 watch from this company and could not be happier with the purchase. The workmanship and quality is excellent and I was kept informed of the progress of my order from start to finish. I would recommend this company to anyone. I am highly satisfied and will be looking to purchase from them again when the opportunity arises.
