As Official Timing Partner to Williams Racing, Bremont has created its first racing inspired watch that celebrates one of the most iconic teams in Formula 1. Drawing upon respective British heritages and specialising in precision engineering, Bremont and Williams Racing have on a truly iconic partnership with the release of the WR-22 ahead of the 2022 F1 season. Uniquely, each watch will come with an original wheel nut from historic Williams Racing cars, certified by Williams Racing.

    Description

    The design of the WR-22 embodies Bremont’s maxim of being ‘Tested beyond Endurance’ bringing together high performance and extreme durability, a perfect fit for the Williams Racing team who will be putting the watch through its paces throughout the F1 calendar.

    The 43mm chronograph incorporates a bi-directional tachymeter, a must have for timing that running mile, and the dial configuration is wonderfully reminiscent of some of the classical motoring chronographs of old. Equally evocative are the 1970s inspired chronograph hands which hark back to the heyday of racing. The highly legible dial is accented by a red chronograph second hand and Super-LumiNova® filled applied indexes and hands ensure luminosity at night.

    REINVIGORATING THE BRITISH WATCH INDUSTRY

    It is not completely unexpected to find that the world sets its time by Greenwich and not by Geneva. Whilst Geneva and Switzerland may be producing the vast majority of luxury wristwatches today, this certainly wasn’t always the case. In 1800 half of the world's watches, around 200,000 pieces a year, were produced on British shores by British watchmakers, which is an incredible statistic. Another wonderful statistic is that probably over 60-70% of the innovation in a modern day mechanical watch has come from Britain, including every major escapement design. Bremont's mission has always been to play a part in bringing back watchmaking to British shores.
