In the late 1990s, brand founders and brothers Nick & Giles English were flying across France in their 1930's biplane. The weather was closing in. A rough-running engine forced them to make an emergency landing. Keen to avoid the French authorities, the brothers were more than happy to accept the gracious help of the farmer whose field they had landed in. They stayed in his home, the aircraft took cover in the barn. It transpired their host had flown aircraft during the war, as well as being a gifted engineer. Half-restored wall clocks lay everywhere, together with numerous engine parts. The farmer still even wore his own father's wristwatch. The brothers promised that his warm hospitality would never be forgotten. His name was Antoine Bremont.
The key pillars that define what Bremont stands for are British Engineering, Aviation & Military and Adventure.
Not only do we look to tell the amazing story of British watchmaking, we also do our best to manufacture as much as we can in the UK. Working with partners such as Martin-Baker, Rolls-Royce Aerospace, Jaguar and Williams Racing we look to work with some of best British engineering companies to constantly make ourselves a better organization. Please go to the British Watchmaking page to learn more.
Aviation & Military
Both the founders are accomplished pilots and Bremont has manufactured watches for over 400 different military units around the world, we don’t have models standing in front of aircraft for our marketing images, we have real pilots. Bremont is also the exclusive luxury watch provider to the Ministry of Defense here in the UK. Please follow @bremontmilitary to learn more. Our watches are the only watches to have ever gone through a live ejection testing program.
Ever since we started testing our watches in the real world with the likes of Charley Boorman and Ewan McGregor going around the world on motorbikes, we realized that we wanted to make a mechanical watch that would look great in the boardroom but one that would also work at the top of Mount Everest, it needed to be tough yet a classical looking aviation watch. To this end, we have worked with many adventures over the years and adventure has become a key part of our DNA, hence the tagline “Tested Beyond Endurance”.
