Bremont, a British luxury watch brand, co-founded by brothers Nick and Giles English in 2002, has announced it will be joining an elite group of leading brands and retailers including Rolex, Patek Philippe and Watches of Switzerland in nurturing homegrown horological talent by supporting the British School of Watchmaking (BSoW).
Opening it’s door to its first students on September 4th, 2006, the British School of Watchmaking is an independent institution which looks for students with the ability, aptitude and desire to become the exceptional watchmakers the modern market requires. The aim of the School is to produce graduates that can be counted amongst the world’s finest young watchmakers to service the UK market and possibly ultimately take their expertise around the world. The British School of Watchmaking has maintained a 100% retention record for their students within the industry.
“Right from the outset, a key motivator for Giles and myself with Bremont has been the bringing of watch-manufacture on a significant scale back to British shores. To achieve this and the future supply of British watchmakers, schools like this are absolutely essential. We are honored to have been invited to join the school as partners alongside some very well respected and established watch brands” Nick English, Co-Founder, Bremont.
It is most fitting for Bremont, as a British brand, to make this long-term commitment to enable Britain’s own watchmaking school to expand further. This is very much a natural extension of what the company is already doing. Bremont plans to integrate itself further with the school by offering some of the students the opportunity to experience working for a watch manufacturer in England.
