Bremont Event at Banks Lyon with Nick English

Bremont News & Releases

For the past decade, we have enjoyed a great partnership with Bremont, the English luxury watch company founded in 2002 and headquartered in Henley-on-Thames. We hope to continue this relationship for many more years to come and carry on stocking Bremont watches at both our stores. To commemorate the launch of a new range, Banks Lyon hosted an event in Lancaster on 11th April 2019 with 70 guests, including Bremont co-founder Nick English and brand ambassador and explorer Jordan Wylie.

Watchmaking Brand Bremont

The luxury aviation-themed British watchmaker is based in England and was founded by brothers Nick and Giles English. Both gained significant mechanical knowledge and experience from their father, Dr Euan English, including clock assembly and aeroplane construction. With an annual production of around 8,000 to 10,000 timepieces, Bremont have won many awards in several different fields, from 2019 Large Business of the Year to 2013 Luxury Watch Brand of the Year.

The stunning watches crafted by Bremont include a number of special editions for serving and former members of the armed forces, so they’re not available to the public. The brand has a wide range of commercial models as well, so you’ll be spoilt for choice.

Our Guests of Honour

Our aim for this event was to enjoy a lovely time with our customers, which we succeeded in doing, so we couldn’t be happier at how the evening went and how much fun we all had. By holding this event, we also wanted to give our customers the opportunity to meet the fantastic Nick English and Jordan Wylie as well as to hear about new Bremont releases.

Everyone at Banks Lyon was over the moon to have Nick English as a guest. Together with his brother, Giles, they created a company that understands timepieces are more than just watches; they’re also the embodiment of adventure. The brothers prototyped and tested their first designs in some of the harshest environments on the planet, with Bremont earning the motto of ‘tested beyond endurance’. Adopted by adventurers, explorers and pilots alike, Bremont have also partnered with Jaguar and Boeing, among other companies.

One of these adventurers is Jordan Wylie, another special guest at our event. Originally from Blackpool, Wylie is a Bremont ambassador, an explorer and an author; he has also recently run 15 marathons in 15 days through national parks, including the Lake District, as part of a fundraising drive. Wylie is the personification of everything Bremont stands for, from his determination to achieve excellence to their passion for adventure and the outdoors. The evening was spent in good company and surrounded by Bremont’s stunning watches, including models from the Bremont Solo range, the Bremont Martin Baker and Bremont Jaguar. The craftsmanship, design and attention to detail that goes into every single model didn’t go unnoticed by our guests, who were thrilled to learn more about the Bremont brand.

Banks Lyon are proud to be official Bremont stockists and offer the latest releases from the luxury watchmaker at both our Lancaster and Kendal stores. The new Bremont Armed Forces collection as well as the Bremont Martin Baker collection and the MBIII are some of the unmissable new models in the brand’s repertoire.
