We are thrilled to announce that Bremont has been confirmed as the Official Watch and Timing partner of the Isle of Man TT Races and Classic TT Races.
The TT Races and Classic TT Races will sit in the portfolio of notable partnerships that include Henley Royal Regatta, Jaguar, British Airways and the UK team at the Invictus Games, along with a number of adventure and extreme sport athletes who endorse and test their range of watches including British explorer Ben Saunders, Olympic Gold medal rower Alex Gregory MBE and the first person to swim around Great Britain, Ross Edgley.
As part of the partnership, Bremont will produce a limited-edition TT Watch each year that will primarily be retailed through Isle of Man based jewellers, Dunwells. The watch will be available for pre-order or can be purchased at the Dunwell store, nearer the time of the event or in the VIP Hospitality unit at the TT Races and Classic TT Races.
The history behind the TT race...
The first TT Race was held on the Isle of Man in 1907 and featured in the World Championship until 1976. This year’s event will be the 100th meeting of the world renowned race. The time trial format race sees the world’s leading road racers tackle the iconic 37¾ mile TT Mountain Course that has been in use since 1911 and many of the world’s greatest motorcycle racers have raced the TT including Mike Hailwood MBE, Geoff Duke OBE, John Surtees CBE, Giacomo Agostini, Phil Read MBE and Joey Dunlop OBE.
“The TT sits unique in global sporting events and really is a gladiatorial race where drivers risk everything averaging speeds of over 130mph through country roads around the Isle of Man. I have witnessed this spectacle a number of times and the energy and excitement is absorbing as you watch this wonderful combination of engineering excellence, bravery and talent. We are honoured that the TT asked Bremont to become a partner and play our small part in the history of this illustrious event.” - Giles English, Bremont
