The Story Behind The Name
Where Does The Name Come From
Flying across France in their 1930’s biplane in the late 1990’s, a rough-running engine and adverse weather conditions forced Nick and Giles to make an emergency landing in a field. Keen to avoid the French authorities, the brothers gratefully accepted the help of the farmer who owned the field, who invited them to hide their plane in his barn and to stay in his home.
As well as being a gifted engineer, he had flown aircraft during the war. He also shared a love of clocks with the brothers; half-restored wall clocks lay everywhere and the farmer still wore his own father’s wristwatch.
Nick and Giles promised that his generous hospitality would never be forgotten. His name? Antoine Bremont.
