AKRON, Ohio--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jared® The Galleria Of Jewelry and award-winning British luxury watch brand Bremont are hosting a special event at the Arrowhead Town Center Jared location (7520 W. Bell Rd., Glendale, AZ) on Tuesday, June 5 from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. The co-founders of Bremont, Nick and Giles English will be in attendance – arriving in an E-Type Jaguar, rebuilt by their father, Euan, and a vintage Porsche 911. A select number of guests will receive a special Bremont welcome package, including a branded phone case and leather-bound notebook. Guests who purchase a Bremont watch during the event will also receive branded cufflinks.
Inspired by a love of flying historic aircraft, watches and all things mechanical, Bremont timepieces are tested beyond the normal call of duty. Immensely precise, reliable and durable, Bremont watches are hand built in limited numbers. Each is designed to appeal to those who share a passion for and appreciation of the innovation and mastery behind a beautiful mechanical wristwatch.
The Bremont name comes from a unique personal experience of Nick and Giles. While flying across France in a 1930s biplane, poor weather and a rough-running engine forced them to make an emergency landing. The brothers accepted the gracious help of a farmer, Antoine Bremont, whose field they had landed in, and who happened to be as keen on aviation and also a gifted engineer. Half-restored wall clocks lay everywhere, together with numerous engine parts. The farmer even still wore his own father’s wristwatch.
A few years later the brothers opened a small workshop in Biel-Bienne, Switzerland and five years after that the first Bremont watches, named in commemoration of the generosity of the farmer with the shared passions of Nick and Giles, were introduced.
Reflecting the brothers’ appreciation of aviation, Bremont has partnered with Martin Baker, a British company that supplies 70% of the world’s Air Forces with fighter ejection seat technology. The MBII and MBIII are available to consumers, but the limited edition MBI is exclusively presented to pilots who have ejected from an aircraft using a Martin-Baker seat. One previous recipient, Captain Jim Leslie, will be in attendance at the Jared event.
As a British brand, Bremont is passionate about bringing watchmaking back to the UK, a country which once led the world in watchmaking at the turn of the century. After two world wars the British watch industry was wiped out and Bremont is on a long-staged mission to bring as much of the process back to British shores. To that end the brand has now set up its HQ in Henley-on-Thames, England, and is proud to be assembling all its mechanical timepieces there as well as manufacturing numerous case and movement parts in a second facility nearby.
Jared The Galleria Of Jewelry is the destination for discerning customers who are passionate about the highest quality and craftsmanship. Guests can visit their local Jared store to browse the wide selection from the most popular luxury timepiece collections including styles exclusive to Jared.
