Nick English is at the controls, wearing a battered flying jacket. His curly ginger hair rises almost vertically between his headphones as he carefully explains the antiquated control panel with the knowledge of someone who has been flying since a teenager. On his wrist is a handsome, generously proportioned pilot’s chronograph with a clean black dial – the first from Nick and brother Giles’ fledgling British brand, Bremont. “There are two things my brother and I know about: ’planes and watches. So it was destiny that we were going to bring the two together.” How it eventually happened carries more than a whiff of Biggles, too. Chocks away!
