Bremont Watches Star in 'Kingsman: The Secret Service'
Tuesday - 13 January 2015
The film is due for UK release on 24th January 2015 and stars Colin Firth, Samuel L. Jackson, Michael Caine, Taron Egerton and Mark Strong.
'Kingsman: The Secret Service' follows Eggsy (Taron Egerton), a law-breaking teen who is recruited by the top-secret Kingsman spy organisation to join its competitive training program - just as a global threat emerges from a twisted tech genius. Bremont watches are worn by each of the Kingsman agents and trainees throughout the film.
The Kingsman agents wear a rose gold chronograph World Timer on an alligator strap, while the trainee recruits wear a black, stealth-like chronograph on a NATO band. A third stainless steel model is worn by Merlin, played by Mark Strong. It is Merlin's job to train the new spies for the Kingsman organisation. The Bremont timepieces are an integral tool in the agents' line-up of gadgets and they play a key role in the film.
"Kingsman are first and foremost British, which made Bremont watches the perfect fit," said Matthew Vaughn, the films Director. "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."
Bremont co-founder Nick English added: "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."
Nick English also makes a cameo appearance in the movie as one of the Kingsman agents.
