The English Tour

Nick and Giles English of Bremont are preparing for the trip of a lifetime down the Eastern seaboard and into Texas.

Bremont’s ethos of adventure is as tightly packed into its foundation as the springs of a Martin-Baker ejection seat who the youthful brand first collaborated with on a watch in 2009.

That’s why, starting next Tuesday at the Bremont boutique on Madison Avenue in New York City, founding brothers Nick and Giles English will be embarking on a road trip across the country to put their passions for motor vehicles, timepieces, and thrill-seeking to the test. They will be conducting discussions about the brand’s watches and its history at each stop along the way. The two will be stopping at 11 various jewelers and collector events across the country before eventually ending up in San Antonio, Texas. Smaller cities such as Winston-Salem, North Carolina and Huntsville, Alabama will get equal opportunity as bigger cities like Dallas and Washington, D.C. to see these modern horological visionaries in action.

They will be traveling across the country in style, too. Nick will be driving a 1970 Series II E-Type Jaguar—a British mechanical legend in its own right—that was restored by the brothers’ late father and Giles will be driving his own 1973 Porsche 911T. Considering the combined 90 years of age between the two cars, the 3,300-mile trip from the Empire State to the San Antonio hill country will surely test both the vehicles’ mechanical potency as well as the brothers’ driving skills.
