INTERVIEW: What we learnt from Nick English about Bremont’s grand plans for The Wing

Editor’s note: A few weeks after Bremont opened the doors of its impressive new watchmaking facilities, The Wing, our European editor Mike Christensen was treated to a guided tour from the British brand’s co-founder Nick English, to see what all the fuss is about.
