The British watchmaker unveiled its 2017 collection in Asia exclusively at Swiss Watch Gallery
I ndependent British watchmaker Bremont revealed its 2017 collection in Asia exclusively at Swiss Watch Gallery in Pavilion Kuala Lumpur. Guests and members of the media who attended the event were the first in the region to view the collection, which will be available later in the year at Swiss Watch Gallery, the sole authorised retailer in Malaysia for Bremont.
Bremont debuted a brand new family of watches inspired from military aviation called AIRCO. Turning 10 this year, the flagship ALT1-P model has been refreshed for 2017, and both the Supermarine diving range and the SOLO 32 Ladies collection welcomed two new references. Bremont continues its partnership with America’s Cup, Norton motorbikes and Jaguar with new novelties in all three lines.
“This year’s collection includes a brand new 40mm case size in diving and aviation wristwatches. Classic, technical and delightful to wear, Bremont watches combine British engineering with robust construction and striking design.” — Bremont Asia General Manager Peter Lao
“Classic, technical and delightful to wear, Bremont watches combine British engineering with robust construction and striking design.”
Valiram Executive Director Ashvin Valiram said, “As a purveyor of fine watches, Swiss Watch Gallery boasts a portfolio of brands with distinctive personalities and unique timepieces. Bremont is one great example — the brand represents the best of British watchmaking. We are proud to be the exclusive retailer for Bremont in Malaysia.”
After Lao introduced the new collection, guests perused the watches to the jazzy tunes of the SYLK Band and savoured delicious canapés from Quivo. They enjoyed single malt whiskies by The Glenlivet, the event’s alcohol partner. Four The Glenlivet whiskies were served: the Founder’s Reserve, 12 Year Old, 15 Year Old and 18 Year Old.
“Whisky and watchmaking both share qualities of handcraftsmanship and heritage dating back centuries,” said The Glenlivet Guardian Ambassador Lionel Lau. “The Glenlivet, like Bremont, is the result of passionate individuals striving to create the best.”
