Bremont Celebrated Record-Breaking Flight with New DH-88

With partnerships with Martin-Baker, Jaguar and, of course, Kingsman: The Secret Service (my personal favorite), collaborations and Bremont go hand-in-hand. This new partnership celebrates the de Havilland DH-88 Comet, Grosvenor House, the aircraft that captured the world’s imagination with a record-breaking flight in 1934. read more

Bremont MBII White – On the Wrist

While it seems like there’s no way that would ever happen, I did get my paws on the MBII White they launched this year to see what it was like for a week-long adventure. The destination was Puerto Rico and the end game was a mix of beachside relaxation and some overdue time back on a surfboard. How would it fare? read more

With ‘London’ marked on the dial, the watch will be made in a limited edition of 535 pieces. The hand-polished case is water resistant to 50 meters.

Show You Andrew Martin of Martin-Baker

Both companies agreed at the time that any co-branded watch needed to withstand the same intense level of testing that Martin-Baker requires of each of its ejection seats. This year marks the seventieth anniversary of the first live-fire test of a Martin-Baker ejection seat with a human test pilot aboard. It’s an important milestone for the British company, which about seven years ago teamed with fellow Brits Bremont to make a series of ejection-tough watches. read more

British watch Bremont Yacht Timers with Giles English

As English notes, Bremont is the first official British timing partner to The America’s Cup since 1851 and with the new Regatta models is very likely the first British brand to debut a wristwatch with this very specific timing function.

When the America’s Cup defending champions ORACLE TEAM USA races in the Louis Vuitton America’s Cup World Series racing on May 7 -8 in New York, the sailors on board the high-tech catamaran will very likely be timing many of their moves with one of Bremont’s new Regatta watches. The British watch brand is Official Timing Partner of the America’s Cup and of the ORACLE TEAM USA, and as Bremont Co-founder Giles English tells iW in the video below the team’s input was helpful as Bremont designed its first regatta watches, often called yacht timers, which debuted during Baselworld 2016. read more

Why The America’s Cup? – Bremont Watches

Frankly speaking, I’d like to answer the question of why Bremont watches chose to have a close relationship with the America’s Cup yachting race. One of my earliest memories is looking out from my bedroom window down onto my father working on the deck of his Sparkman & Stephens “She 36” sailing yacht. No, I was not by the sea, however in a very landlocked village close to Cambridge in the depths of the English countryside. He had chased a hull and had it delivered to our front garden where he then spent three years turning it into a beautiful sailing boat that became our home for six months. That period of my life taught Nick and myself so much. read more

Here we run down five yachting and regatta watches and reveal why they’re ideal companions out on the waves. read more
