We were absolutely delighted to be invited to the Bremont Watch Company Manufacturing and Technology Centre and worldwide headquarters ‘The Wing’ in Henley-on-Thames, Oxfordshire.
It was a gorgeous sunny day and a whole bunch of club members headed to various meet points across the south to head up to Henley-on-Thames.
These meet groups converged and we all headed up to first enjoy a wonderful private dining experience.
Reserved parking was set aside for our cars and we had our own private dining room.
After a fabulous meal, we were back on the road and up to Bremont’s worldwide HQ ‘The Wing’. Once again there was reserved parking right outside the main entrance.
Inside we were welcomed, not only by the lovely team but also by Nick English (Bremont co-founder). Nick very graciously asked about our member’s cars and took a genuine interest in our car club. Nick himself is a car lover and has Porsche’s and Jaguar’s himself.
After making our way up the auditorium, Nick gave us an interesting insight into the background of this English watchmaker and the backstory to worldwide watchmaking, and some of the myths behind ‘Swiss Made’ watches.
After this, it was time for our private tour of the facility. The tour included seeing the watchmaking and manufacturing processes. A fascinating insight as to how precisely the whole business operates.
Everyone agreed that they were walking away more knowledgeable about the watchmaking industry and learned a great deal about the Bremont backstory and ethos of their company.
Back in the boutique area, some of the Bremont team were able to show a number of pieces to our club members.
One club member Jason even purchased a limited edition piece worth a whopping £18,000, there and then!
A massive thank you to Nick and his team for the invite to Bremont’s HQ. It was a pleasure to be shown around their magnificent facility.
Nick even invited us to return another day which we will definitely be taking him up on!
Finally a thank you to club member Ian L for help with the Bremont comms to set this visit up.
