Bremont and Williams – A racy partnership

The sun is shining here in the UK, albeit for most-likely a short time, and so it’s time for one of the country’s most exciting sporting events, the British Grand Prix. Whilst now truly international in its flavour, the Formula 1 race at Silverstone is a stalwart of the UK’s sporting fixtures and this year our friends at Bremont have unveiled a racy partnership with another British business, Williams. As the Official Timing Partners of Williams Racing, Bremont has unveiled the WR-22 sports chronograph in steel in time for the 2022 racing season.

The partnership between the two brands is truly a Best of British moment, with both parties being based in Oxfordshire. Furthermore, Bremont and Williams have been developing a manufacturing partnership that marries the precision machining of car and watch parts thanks to crossover in manufacturing skills. Jost Capito, Williams CEO adds, “Williams Racing has found the perfect brand fit with Bremont. The synergies between our two businesses in terms of British design and engineering are undeniable and complement each other beautifully. We’re excited to be launching the first Bremont Williams timepiece, a must have for any racing enthusiast.”

A racing chronograph with a racing pedigree – the Bremont WR-22

The Bremont WR-22 is classic chrono in styling, with three sub-register dial layout, screw down pushers and black tachymeter bezel. The Williams Racing colour palette of oxford blue, electric blue and white is central to the watch’s design with the flashes of blue across the white dial. The 70s styling of the watch is evident in the red chronograph hands and the hands design, with Super-Luminova in-fill that matches the luminous hour markers.

Turn the watch over and you are treated to a tungsten rotor fashioned in the style of a Williams racing car wheel with the partners logo in the team’s familiar livery. Bremont Co-Founder Nick English comments, “We were incredibly proud for the Williams Racing team to be sporting the ALT1-WT watch last year and this season we’re very much looking forward to both Alex Albon and Nicholas Latifi sporting the new Williams timepiece. Precision and timekeeping are everything in Formula 1 and the WR-22 represents the foundations on which our partnership with Williams Racing is based: British engineering, technical excellence and authenticity. We hope this timepiece resonates with both Williams and motorsport fans alike.”

The WR-22 is available with either a steel bracelet or black Alcantara strap. The 43mm steel case with black PVD treated midcase. The ceramic tachymeter insert, sits within a bi-directional steel bezel. This being Bremont, there is a super cool element to the package, in that each watch comes complete with an actual wheel nut from a Williams racing car, with certificate of authenticity from Williams…perfect for car nuts!

Moodys currently has a Bremont WR-22 model in stock. Please call in to view the watch and take it for a spin.
