Williams Racing Welcomes Bremont as Official Timing and Watch Partner
Williams Racing is delighted to welcome Bremont as the team’s Official Timing and Watch Partner. Founded in 2002, Bremont craft beautifully engineered British watches, designed, manufactured and assembled in Oxfordshire.
The partnership draws upon the many similarities of the two brands, with a clear focus on precision and innovation allowing for collaboration on a deeper technical level. Bremont’s move to its new state-of-the-art Manufacturing and Technology Centre, which marks the start of a new era for British watchmaking, is perfectly timed to enable a knowledge sharing focused around their respective CNC machining capabilities.
Williams race drivers, George Russell and Nicholas Latifi, will proudly wear their Bremont watches along with other senior members of the team.
Jost Capito, CEO from Williams Racing commented: “It is our pleasure to welcome luxury watch manufacturer Bremont as Williams Racing’s Official Timing and Watch Partner, as we start an exciting new era for the team. As close neighbours in Oxfordshire we see the multitude of synergies between the two businesses and Bremont’s commitment to bring watchmaking back to the UK, with its unique positioning as the preeminent British watch manufacturer, makes the firm a perfect partner for us. The undeniable crossover in manufacturing skills and our sheer proximity to one another should make for some exciting and innovative future projects.”
Giles English, Co-Founder of Bremont added: “Everyone at Bremont is incredibly proud to be working with Williams Racing, a team with an incredible history and such a poignant name in sport. The links between our two industries are considerable and as Official Timing and Watch Partner our relationship will be beneficial on many levels. Over the years we have seen a substantial crossover between the manufacturing skills in Formula One and watchmaking; we have employed several individuals from the industry to date. Complex machining to very high tolerances requires a significant investment in machinery and technical skillset. We’re excited to be working with such a renowned British technology business and look forward to seeing where we can take the partnership.”
