Bremont becomes Platinum Business Club Member

Bremont produces beautiful mechanical watches from their manufacturing and technology centre, The Wing in Henley-on-Thames. Built on precise timekeeping, only the highest quality components are used in their movements.

Co-Founders Nick and Giles English have a strong passion for aviation and the Armed Forces, and have constructed watches to withstand the rigours of high altitudes and undersea depths. The Bremont Military and Special Projects Division creates exclusive, bespoke watches for military personnel.

Bremont partnered with The Gurkha Welfare Trust last year to produce an exclusive limited-edition timepiece based on their Broadsword Bronze Timepieces, part of the Armed Forces Collection. Sales of these watches have raised to-date over £25,000 for the Trust’s vital work in Nepal.

We recognise this partnership and our continued collaboration with Bremont by welcoming them to The Gurkha Welfare Trust Business Club as a Platinum member.

David Watson, Corporate Partnership Officer at The Gurkha Welfare Trust, said:

“We are so proud to have the support of Bremont for Gurkha veterans, their widows and communities in Nepal. Bremont has a strong international reputation and they represent the best of the UK watch manufacturing industry, with their watches all being designed, manufactured and assembled in England. The specially designed Broadsword GWT watch they produced in support of the Trust represents all the outstanding qualities of Bremont, and was hugely popular amongst our supporters. The collaboration with The Gurkha Welfare Trust continues the tradition of the founders’ passion for the armed forces, and we recognise their incredible support for the Trust by welcoming them as a Platinum level member of The GWT Business Club.”

Nick English, co-founder of Bremont, said, “We are immensely proud to become a Platinum partner with The Gurkha Welfare Trust in recognition of our contribution to helping this most respected of regiments. For over 200 years the Gurkhas have admirably dealt with anything the world has thrown at them while supporting the British Crown and we look forward to working closer with them in their commendable efforts to help retired Gurkhas and their families in Nepal.”
