Not only has 2021 seen the reveal of Bremont’s integrated HQ, the brand accompanied it with news that Bremont has become the Official Timing Partner to Formula 1’s Williams Racing.
The partnership is described as the coming together of two British engineering businesses, with Giles English particularly excited about the team-up.
He explains: “The links between our two industries are considerable and as Official Timing Partner our relationship will be beneficial on many levels.”
Adding: “Over the years we have seen a substantial crossover between the manufacturing skills in F1 and watchmaking, we have employed several individuals from the F1 industry to date. Complex machining to very high tolerances requires a significant investment in machinery and technical skill set, any extra support from the Williams technical team will undoubtedly be hugely valuable to our business.
“We’re excited to be working with such a renowned British technology business and look forward to seeing where we can take the partnership.”
Bremont will supply watches and clocks to the drivers and the team and with an international race calendar to keep to, the Williams team will be wearing the ALT1-WT world timer, in blue.
