Iconic British watchmaker Bremont, known for supplying timepieces that service military forces, aviation, endurance and motorsport, is offering exclusive tours of its 3,250 sqm state of the art manufacturing facility, dubbed ‘The Wing,’ in Henley-On-Thames, to members and friends of the Australian British Chamber of Commerce.
Following a £48.4M investment from renowned American investor, Bill Ackman, Bremont is on a new trajectory of growth and market expansion. The appointment of industry veteran Davide Cerrato, previously of Tudor and Mont Blanc, also signifies the brand’s ambition to expand its position within the tightly contested global luxury watch market.
The new capital has allowed Bremont to refocus strategic pillars of marketing and distribution methods, as well as invest in the development of The Wing, an incredible facility where the art of hand making contemporary timepieces is being preserved by the brand’s many artisans.
Co-Founders and brothers Nick and Giles are incredibly proud of Bremont’s continued success, and The Wing which is proving to be a popular attraction for those close to the brand.
“To make exquisitely engineered mechanical timepieces on British soil with the lofty objective of reinvigorating the nation’s horological past, using our adventurous spirit, passion for detail, desire to innovate and dedication to the highest quality of customer satisfaction.”
“Manufacturing takes considerable time and investment to get right. However, at Bremont we set our sights on bringing watchmaking home and it became the focus of the. So here we are at the next bend in the road of that journey. The Wing enables us to produce beautifully made watches, as before, but now with even more emphasis on manufacturing more components here in the UK. This beautiful building is a treat for any watch enthusiast to come and visit but it is so much more than that, it is an advanced centre for the future of British watchmaking,” they said.
This new facility has enabled Bremont to become the first business in over 50 years to manufacture mechanical movements at scale on British shores. The opening of The Wing, along with a series of new global boutiques and increased demand across a new range of watches, drove record annual revenue growth of 28 percent in Bremont’s most recent financial year.
