    Looks good J, really like the green accents.
    As I have said before I was very close to getting one the same.

    Are they illegals in the back ground just landing.

    In some parts of the UK it's not very easy to find one. I do find it very odd as I can walk past dealers near to where I live and sometimes there will be three or four dealers within half a mile, all selling the same brands. You would think that at least one of them would try something different (and in my opinion, better) to get more sales. However, most seem to be 'stuck in a rut' and just want to sell the typical Tag, Breitling, Omega etc.

    Fantastic watch, sporty and classy in equal measure.

    I was told by my local AD years ago that the reason they didn't carry Bremont at the time was because other brands (the usual suspects) wanted the premium window space. Interestingly, they now carry Bremont alongside the others in said 'premium' space, and sales are apparently going well. Totally agree with you though, finding Bremont generally are very few and far between, still - even with the increase in ADs carrying them.

    I've been told similar in the past. I can acknowledge why national chain stores adopt that set up but I struggle to see why independents do. That said, there don't appear to be too many independents these days which might be part of the problem.

    One thing I've never heard about is sales reps for Bremont. Do Bremont actually have representatives that call in to various stores (nationwide) to show watches and discuss the merits of the brand or do they leave it up to the stores to contact Bremont? Something that Bremont lacks in my opinion is an identity. What I mean by that is if you display Bremont next to one of the known brands, the quality and design of a Bremont is at least as good if not better than the competition but the typical consumer will be more taken by the known brand simply because it's known. So it's up to dealers to be pro active in showing the consumer what they're missing but if Bremont aren't backing the dealers then they can't expect the dealers to be pro active.
