Bremont Watches - A Tragic Turning Point
Headquartered at Henley on the Thames, the elite British company Bremont is known for its durable pilot’s watches. Bremont’s love for the military and aircraft came from the company’s founders, Nick and Giles English, and a tragedy that became the turning point of these brothers’ lives. In 1995, Euan English and his son, Nick, were flying a WWII T6-Harvard aircraft that broke down mid-flight. As Giles waited for his turn to fly, he learned that his father had died from the Harvard crash and his brother, Nick, was critically injured.
Six months later, Nick had recovered his strength, but the loss of their father kept churning the brothers’ souls. They knew time was too short to fulfil their passion for creating well-engineered mechanical devices. The late Euan English was a former RAF pilot with a PhD in Aeronautical Engineering. Euan would often come back home from work with stories of building aircraft and old clocks. Eventually, the brothers were in the passionate pursuit to make beautifully engineered timepieces that tied their love for mechanical pieces and aeroplanes.
The love for old aeroplanes often kept the English brother flying. In the 1990s, they were flying over France when they were hit by bad weather and were forced to land. They did not want the French authorities to find out about their illegal landing on French grounds. A kind farmer helped them cover their 1930’s biplane in his barn. The brothers took shelter in the farmer’s house and came to realize that the farmer was a pilot during the Second World War. He also loved watches and still wore his father’s wristwatch.
The farmer was almost a personification of the English brothers’ vision. His name: Antoine Bremont.
Thus, the name Bremont became immortalized in the world of watches.
In 2002, Bremont entered the horological world. Developed with care and tested against near-military standards, Bremont watches stand tall on four defining pillars: British Engineering, Adventure, Aviation, and Military. In addition, the brand ensures that most of the manufacturing process is kept within the borders of the United Kingdom.
Despite being a luxury brand, it hasn’t lost touch with its soul that brought them to the horological world - their father and the love of military and aircraft. Bremont has produced over 400 different military units all over the globe for real pilots. They are the exclusive watch providers of the UK Ministry of Defense. These watches also stand the test of endurance, with adventure enthusiasts and motorists like Ewan McGregor and Charley Boorman vouching for Bremont’s line of watches. They are meant to last for long.
“Tested Beyond Endurance” - Built To Last
Going for quality over quantity, this award-winning British company focuses on creating the best line of tough limited watches. Bremont watch cases go through a unique Bremont Trip-Tick® construction. The steel bezel contains sapphire crystals, while the central body contains either a DLC treated middle barrel or Titanium. The watches boast of either a steel or a crystal case back and are scratch-resistant. Each watch goes through nine anti-reflective treatment layers to either side of the sapphire crystals and B-EBE2000 hardening technology to guarantee durability. Bremont’s Super-LumiNova® paint used in a range of dials ensures that you can have enough visibility even when the lighting is poor.
Watches For Generations To Come
Bremont watches share the enduring story of an aircraft tragedy and how it became a turning point for two brothers who transformed their horological dream into a long-lasting reality. The defining engineering and manufacturing process of Bremont has given rise to three major lines of watches: The Supermarine range, the MB range, and the U-2 range. Each collection has its own distinct characteristic endurance capability.
The Supermarine range features a soft-iron anti-magnetic Faraday case to withstand any harmful magnetic effects on the watch. A helium escape valve maintains the pressure level within the watch and keeps it equalized when the difference between the inner and outer pressure reaches a critical level. The MB range with a rubberized mount ensures the perfect absorption of shocks. The U-2 range features the Bremont Roto-Click® - an in-house bezel technology where the bezel rotates on four ball bearings. The result - the precise click for every rotated minute.
Bremont’s mission statement is “to make exquisitely engineered mechanical timepieces on British soil with the lofty objective of reinvigorating the nation’s horological past.” This rings true to this day.
Bremont is the sponsor of Oracle Team USA and America’s Cup.
Famous partnerships have also given rise to watch collections like The Armed Forces Collection (approved by Her Majesty’s Armed Forces), the Jaguar Collection (celebrating the 60th anniversary of the launch of Jaguar E-type), the England Rugby Collection (Bremont is the official timekeeper of England Rugby) Hawking Collection (celebrating Stephen Hawking) and more.
From military personalities and sports athletes like Jason Fox, Nick Butter, and Jordan Wylie to singers and actors like Thomas Rhett and Tom Hardy, Bremont is the go-to choice for many notable celebrities. Bremont has divided its collection of timepieces under the Altitude, Supermarine, Motorsports, Armed Forces, and Time Capsule.
