THE WATCH GALLERY COLLABORATES WITH BREMONT
COMBINING THE BEST IN TECHNICAL INNOVATION AND ACCURACY
Luxury watch retailer The Watch Gallery announces an exclusive limited edition chronograph to mark its partnership with luxury British watchmaker Bremont; this is only the second time the two companies have created such a special timepiece together following the success of a previous 2012 collaboration.
Nick English, co-founder of Bremont, said: “We’ve worked with The Watch Gallery for many years now and it’s a wonderful partnership, something we’re very motivated by. It was an honour to produce a watch in partnership with them and it seemed fitting to use the blue of The Watch Gallery; with its beautifully polished applied indexes, we’ve come up with something slightly more classical.”
Bremont stands for the timeless art of watch-making, combining the best in technical innovation and accuracy - a philosophy reflected in this unique chronometer. The brand’s vision of reinvigorating British watch-making has come to fruition since they began in 2002 and this piece celebrates the classic ALT1-C, the first watch ever designed by the brand’s founders, Nick and Giles English.
Looking to the celebrated design of the RAF Mosquito fuel gauge, Bremont ALT1-C Watch Gallery Limited Edition is off-set with two etched sub dials and features polished applied numerals set on a blue dial, in The Watch Gallery’s signature shade. The same blue is mirrored in the embossed calf leather strap; another nod to Bremont’s choice partner. “The beautiful blue coloured dial, teamed with a blue strap, not only makes this watch distinctive but also pretty unique” says Bremont Co-Founder Nick English.
Adrian Maronneau, Director of Buying & Merchandising at The Watch Gallery, said: “The Watch Gallery and Bremont share a special history. We were one of the first accounts worldwide to launch the brand back in 2007 and have since then grown up together. You could go as far as calling us best buddies. This new limited edition truly celebrates our common history. We have been talking about creating a blue dial on the ALT1-C since it first launched. Mixed with a perfectly matching blue racing strap it gives the watch an inimitable Watch Gallery look while staying true to Bremont’s famous DNA. Limited to 20 worldwide this watch is not only extremely exclusive but also, I hope you will agree, very sharp indeed. Enjoy.”
