Bremont Productivity - 2014

Post by AntonioPD » Wed Oct 15, 2014 12:52 pm

Just out of curiosity I took a look and discovered (if my research is correct) that this year, in addition to the two Boeings, the MBIII and the TN, Bremont released three major LEs (Wright Flyer, Jaguar and Chivas), at least 17 military LEs, and the Hambledon NATO strap. They established a NY office, are opening another London boutique, and launched in stores in France, Italy, Asia, Spain, South Africa and the Netherlands. Finally they hired at least eight new staff (at least that's the number who have LinkedIn pages - there are certainly more.) All to say, they are pushing the outside of the envelope as usual! :thumbsup:

How many units did they produce? What was their sales volume? What are their sales projections for the next five years? And, what new models and UK inhouse movement production do they have planned?

i admire the growth and I dig my Supermarine, but the prolific "editions", speak more to a company that is all about cute branding and makes me less interested in getting another.

And i bet the clock is ticking on "Bremont edition Beach Towels - just like the Navy Seals use!"

How about a bit of time spent to add a couple of holes on the clasp of the Supermarine bracelet?

Hmmm. Didn't intend to elicit hate for the brand with my post! :banghead:

Eric, Bangers and Mash as far as I can tell. Or maybe Spotted Dick. :rock:

They're certainly making headway. They're either incredibly well funded (like in massive debt) and/or have exceptional leadership.

I believe one if not both brothers were in finance. They also have that old family money sense about them. Whatever ... they're making it work brilliantly.
