Two British engineering businesses, Bremont and Williams Racing, each with its own British heritage, both based in Oxfordshire and both embarking on pivotal new chapters in 2021.
As Bremont becomes Official Timing Partner to Williams Racing, the two firms will be starting a new journey together going into the 2021 Formula One season and will be looking to collaborate on a deeper technical level throughout the partnership.
Bremont’s move to its new state of the art Manufacturing and Technology Centre, which marks the start of a new era for British watchmaking, is perfectly timed to enable a knowledge sharing focused around their respective CNC machining capabilities.
“Everyone at Bremont is incredibly proud to be working with Williams Racing, a team with an incredible history and such a poignant name in sport. The links between our two industries are considerable and as Official Timing Partner our relationship will be beneficial on many levels. Over the years we have seen a substantial crossover between the manufacturing skills in F1™ and watchmaking, we have employed several individuals from the F1™ industry to date. Complex machining to very high tolerances requires a significant investment in machinery and technical skillset, any extra support from the Williams technical team will undoubtedly be hugely valuable to our business. We’re excited to be working with such a renowned British technology business and look forward to seeing where we can take the partnership.”Giles English, Bremont Co-Founder
Bremont will supply watches and clocks to the drivers and the team. With a truly international race calendar to keep to, the Williams team will be wearing the ALT1-WT world timer, in blue of course.
