Bremont Watch Company confirms that the Special Edition Kingsman watch range, developed for acclaimed director Matthew Vaughn’s new film Kingsman: The Secret Service, comprises three new models that are featured throughout the film. The film stars Colin Firth, Samuel L. Jackson, Michael Caine and emerging actor Taron Egerton. The agents from the super-secret British spy organisation, including Nick English, Co-Founder Bremont, who makes a cameo appearance as one of the Kingsmen, can be seen exclusively wearing these custom made Bremont timepieces.
The Kingsman agents in the film each wear a beautifully crafted rose gold chronograph World Timer on an alligator strap, whilst the trainee recruits sport a black stealth-like chronograph on a NATO band. Additionally the Kingsman Stainless Steel model is worn by Merlin (Mark Strong) who is the trainer of these potential super spies for the top secret Kingsman organisation. It’s Merlin’s job to whip into shape central character Eggsy (Taron Egerton), a law-breaking teen who’s recruited by the Kingsman agents to help bring down megalomaniac Valentine (Samuel L. Jackson).
The watches play a key part in the film and are an integral tool in the secret agents’ gadget line-up.The Bremont Kingsman watches will launch exclusively in Bremont boutiques and on MR PORTER.COM in January 2015. The film also includes a number of other fine British luxury brands. Matthew Vaughn, Director, Kingsman: “Kingsman are first and foremost British, which made Bremont watches the perfect fit.
Apart from making fantastic mechanical watches, Bremont have links to the military and their special forces around the world, making them the perfect timepieces for the modern spy. In addition to being a practical watch for a spy it is my belief that you can tell more about a person by his watch and his shoes.
Kingsman is all about being a gentleman and Bremont is very much a modern day gentleman’s watch.”Nick English, Co-founder, Bremont: “It was a great honour for Bremont to be chosen to work on the Kingsman film, and it was wonderful to see how proactive Matthew (Vaughn) has been in the whole process. We pride ourselves on making durable, mechanical chronometers in Henley-on-Thames and so the whole British connection is spot on and we pride ourselves on the work we do manufacturing for the military so the connection is very relevant.” The Bremont Kingsman Special Edition Collection launches in January 2015.
