Bremont’s British World Of Watch Making

Postby koimaster » June 23rd 2017, 8:39am

Among the many things I didn't know about “Bremont Chronometers London” was that at their Silverstone facility, they hired a group of former Formula 1 engineers to work on their watches. The Silverstone office is part of a group of facilities near the world-famous race track mostly comprising places where dangerously fast cars are built. This is just one of their manufacture locations, and they will soon be expanding further, as they have already outgrown their watchmaking facility in Henley-on-Thames – a small town outside of London that is about one-and-a-half hours away (perhaps less if you are driving with a local). Why did Bremont hire race car engineers to make watch cases and parts? Because those are pretty much the only available guys in England who can understand the unique issues present in the watchmaking world who aren't traditionally trained watchmaking micro engineers. It is all about making very precise, very high-quality pieces in some manner of volume that allows any serious watch brand to operate.

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."
