With the promise of a summer filled with action and adventure upon us ROX is thrilled to offer the chance to pre-order the latest limited edition released by Bremont on Friday (June 8) on World Oceans Day.
It’s no secret that we’re all about diamonds and thrills here at ROX but extreme adventurer Sean Conway took thrills to the next level as he visited our Argyll Arcade boutique with Bremont on Thursday evening. The aptly named Thrill Room provided the perfect backdrop for the special event during which invited guests had the chance to enjoy an inspiring talk by Bremont co-founder Giles English along with hair raising tales by adventurer Sean.
Inspired by one of the leading female figures of World War Two the Bremont Solo-32-LC is an unforgettable timepiece. Named after Lettice Curtis, widely regarded as the most remarkable female pilot of the Second World War, the British made watch is a fitting tribute to one of the nation’s most renowned women.
Named after the ‘Aircraft Manufacturing Company Limited’, Bremont’s new AIRCO collection is made up of two models: the MACH 1 and the MACH 2. The best collections of watches invariably share a central theme, and with the AIRCO range the theme is vintage military timepieces.
British watchmaker Bremont take a lot of pride in the partnerships they are able to nurture, and in the resulting timepieces. Considering this drive - and Bremonts’ British heritage – collaboration with Jaguar makes perfect sense, and we have been blown away by every watch created thus far. The focus of the partnership has always been the Jaguar E-type, an icon of British motoring, and a car described by Enzo Ferrari as the most beautiful in the world.
Bremont is thrilled to be strengthening its ties with rugby and to be working with International Rugby playing brothers Richie & Jonny Gray. Remarkably the Gray brothers are the 47th set of Scottish brothers to represent their country in rugby and are both tipped be in the Lion squad in 2017.
Bremont have had a wonderful partnership with Boeing for a number of years, and as the world leading aircraft manufacturer turned 100 Bremont knew they had to create something pretty special to commemorate this milestone. The Bremont Boeing 100 is that something special - a beautiful aviation themed watch with all the history and utility one could possibly want.
The very origins of the wristwatch stem from the needs of those magnificent men in their flying machines – and even in the age of the drone, says Alex Doak, pilot’s watches have never lost their appeal, or cool factor.
Bremont brand ambassador and adventurer Charley Boorman was the star attraction at an evening showcasing award-winning British watchmakers Bremont in which he shared tales of his times in Hollywood and his trips with Ewan McGregor with exclusive guests.
