The English brothers, Nick and Giles, along with Mike Pearson are doing a road trip to several Bremont AD's in the US they're calling "The English Tour"

Starting in NYC then down to Philly, DC, North and South Carolina, GA, Teen and finally ending in Texas.

We met at the 57th squadron restaurant next to the airport - the event featured watches, wheels and wings and was a great evening.

They joked that the E-Type had to be fixed so many times so far that it is now an American built Jaguar

A few other wheels showed up, too

Inside, Mike Pearson manned the table of watches - Mike asked what each person was wearing and he just wanted to talk watches - you can tell he loves watches and his job

Image

I wanted to check out the S301 and AirCo and was not disappointed - great size, feel and looks.

Before Nick and Giles gave a short presentation, I walked over and started up a conversation. I found it interesting they were just hanging out in the corner and not working the room. Anyway, we talked about Waffle House (they walked in one and walked right back out), Beale Street (they will be in Memphis tonight, and of course watches.
Genuine and down to earth guys.

Heck, even AC showed up

Image

Brilliant guys, great watches and a bloody great time.

Looks like fun.

they'll be driving right by me half way between memphis and dallas. Maybe I can flag them down - I'd like to buy an S500 at some point.

So is this the Porsche Bahama Yellow that Halios talked about as inspiration for the Seaforth 2nd round?

Great pics, Mike! The Bremont guys are very adept at yarning on about watches and life in general.

The latest Jason Heaton podcast "The Grey Nato" is dedicated to a long talk about the Bremont tour. Great Podcast in general.
