About This Episode
Our guest today is Nick English, the co-founder of Bremont watches. His is a story that is far from ordinary, including a childhood where a normal weekend was borrowing his father’s 1940s aircraft and taking a trip to Europe. But a tragic plane crash would cost his father his life and leave Nick badly injured. Yet in the passing of time, from tragedy would come triumph and the first step of that would lead Nick and his brother Giles to conclude that life is too short to not follow your passion. That passion was to lead to the creation of Bremont, the aviation themed watch brand and a tip for life: “Be half full. They are the best folk to be around.”
