Brand Review: Bremont Watches
As a luxury watch lover, if you appreciate beautifully engineered chronometers, Bremont has got you covered! The award-winning British company produced exceptional Bremont watches at their headquarters in Henley on Thames, England.
History of Bremont Watches
The journey started in 2002 when two brothers – Giles and Nick English Bremont started the plan of making beautiful pilot’s watches when losing at football with Queen. Synonymous with fine watchmaking, Bremont watches are available in a wide assortment. The Headquarter located in Henley-on-Thames in Oxfordshire where the process of watchmaking occurs. The company is known for producing fine watches that can easily compete with Swiss giant watches. The father of the brothers was a former Royal Air Force pilot who inculcated in his sons an obsession for aviation things. While practicing for an air display, he was killed in a plane crash in 1995. In an accident, more than 30 broken bones were found. The sons decided to honor the ceremony of the father by concentrating on their passion of mechanical watchmaking.
The Bremont Name
Nick and Giles, in the late 1990s, were flying across France in their biplane in the 1930s. Because of the weather, the engine forced them to make an emergency landing. Avoiding the French authorities, they accepted the farmer’s help on which they landed. They stayed in his home and covered the aircraft in the barn. The name of the farmer was Antoine Bremont. The farmer wore the watch of their father even now.
