Celebrating 125 Years with Bremont Watchmakers
E.J. Churchill has commissioned Bremont to build 125 unique watches to celebrate its 125 year history.
Drawing on a number of design features from English shotguns, every watch will be made with Damascus style steel and will incorporate some subtle references to the E.J. Churchill guns, making this watch a must-have for any true shooting enthusiast.
E.J. Churchill has been synonymous with fine handmade English shotguns since 1891 and still today the qualities of traditional craftsmanship are upheld throughout their bespoke range of shotguns and rifles.
The style, elegance, reliability and technical innovation of E.J. Churchill guns make them the natural choice for a keen shot.
The watch and gun industries have always been closely aligned due to the shared skills in high precision engineering. At the turn of the century half of the world’s watches, around 200,000 pieces a year, were produced on British shores by British watch makers, which is a remarkable 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.
As a result of WWI and WWII much of the skill set used in watch manufacture in Great Britain was poached by the armaments industry, if you could manufacture parts for a watch you could quickly adapt to gun or aircraft components.
