Check out JCK’s exclusive interview with Giles English, co-founder of Bremont Watch Company and have a look at a few of the watches for yourself.
Bremont is an all-new watch brand offering a range of highly-developed timepieces of exceptional quality. Each model is designed to exacting specifications, while possessing enduring aesthetic values.
The ALT1-P with the BE-53AE (base ETA) movement has SuperLumiNova C3 hands and dial markings, internal rotating bezel and three-subdials, and self-winding chronograph movement. Water-resistant to 100 ATM. It sells for GBP £2,650.
Although Bremont watches are made using only the finest quality Swiss components and are hand-assembled by skilled watchmakers in a dedicated atelier in Biel-Bienne, they contain something which no comparable timepiece can match: an air of quintessential Britishness derived from the background of the brand’s founders, brothers Nick and Giles English.
The English brothers are professional aviators who have lived in and around aircraft since childhood, thanks to the enthusiasm of their father, the late Euan English.
Euan English was an exceptional man: an adored father, a talented engineer and, notably, an RAF aerobatic champion and display pilot of the highest calibre. It is to Euan English, who died in March 1995 while practicing for an air display in a North American Harvard, that his sons dedicated the time, thought and energy that have resulted in the Bremont watch – a watch of which the brothers are proud and of which they believe their father would be proud as well.
