As part of a series interviewing the leading minds behind some of the world’s most renowned luxury watch brands, we are pleased to introduce our latest podcast episode with Bremont CEO’s Nick and Giles English.
Recorded at our head offices in London, this episode delves into Bremont’s latest products, the brands history as well as their personal journey into the world of horology.
The origins of the Bremont began as early as the English’s childhood. When growing up, they were given the freedom and space of their father’s workshop, where they could tinker and engineer a variety of mechanical products. This sparked their imagination and got them up to speed on how things tick, so to speak.
“Our mother used to go to car boot sales and buy us 15 old watches, she’d then let us take them apart and see if we could make them work”.
They moved on from talking about their personal history to the brands evolution and present. When asked how they went about creating their range of products, they say;
“We wanted to create a brand that featured British engineering and were aviation and military inspired. Our whole DNA of watches is based on this. We see aviation watches as a category alone, they are not sports watches nor dress watches and that is a key part and it led to adventure which is our final pillar of the brand.”
Discussing further about their latest products and partnerships;
“The aviation theme has always been a core part which then led to a military influence. We have now been working with the military since 2009, with 20% of our business manufacturing pieces for them. It’s something we are really proud of.”
