As the new series ‘Long Way Up’ is soon to hit our screens, featuring Charley Boorman and Ewan McGregor travelling 13,000 miles around Central and South America, we look back to 2006 when the duo became the first people to test Bremont watches ‘out in the field’. Charley and Ewan met co-founders Nick and Giles English just before they set off for their gruelling trip together from Scotland to South Africa which later became the documentary ‘Long Way Down’. Bremont watches were not yet available for retail but having shown passion for the brand’s story, Charley and Ewan were keen to be amongst the first to test the strength and reliability of the watches during their incredible endurance adventure. Charley said ‘The opportunity to work with a talented British company was really exciting, ever since then it’s been a wonderful journey working with Bremont.’
"Then, one day, when you least expect it, the great adventure finds you."
"If you travel with an open mind and a good heart, and remain respectful of the country you're in, then you should be fine."
