This season, luxury watch brand Bremont pay their respects and honour one of the most important figures in our history, physicist and author Stephen Hawking, by creating a range of timepieces named after him.
Nick English, Co-founder of British watch brand Bremont, caught up with actor and star of Long Way Up, Charley Boorman in an exclusive interview for Watches of Switzerland. Both share a passion for adventure, motorcycling, engineering and of course, Bremont watches.
The Bremont Broadsword was originally designed as a contemporary take on the three handed ‘Dirty Dozen’ watch design, a series of timepieces commissioned for the British Army during WW2 when Britain’s Ministry of Defence needed watches to issue to military personnel.
Bremont’s latest fascinating timepiece is the H-4 Hercules Limited Edition, which uses original elements from the H-4 Hercules – the iconic 1940s flying boat built by Howard Hughes that was otherwise known as the ‘Spruce Goose.’
Bremont has collaborated with critically acclaimed artist, producer, songwriter, and esteemed Rolling Stones guitarist Ronnie Wood. We hosted the exclusive launch in our VIP event at Watches of Switzerland, Knightsbridge, in London.
