"There are so many things in life that are disposable. A mechanical watch is there forever, and there's something quite romantic about that. They're objects of passion, really. It's a little heartbeat on your wrist." - Nick English, co-founder, Bremont
Walpole member Bremont introduces its newest watch, the Bremont Longitude. As reflected by its name, the new Bremont Longitude pays tribute to Great Britain’s role in clock and watchmaking, and contribution to time, astronomy and navigation
Walpole star columnist Peter Howarth, editor, content expert and CEO of luxury creative agency, Show Media, talks to luxury’s leaders about their approach to the crisis, and shares his insights into these extraordinary times.
In the latest in this series, Peter Howarth speaks to Giles English, co-founder (with his brother Nick) of British watch firm Bremont, about bringing watchmaking skills back to the UK, and how lockdown has given him time to think of a new approach to the future of doing business.
