When diamonds meet Omega’s De Ville Central Tourbillon

There are limited edition watches and then there are ‘limited edition’ watches. Omega, as a brand, offers both with their limited edition Speedmaster, Seamaster, Constellation and De Ville watches.

Bremont Terra Nova touches down in the region

Bremont is a young British watch brand with a little over 10 years of experience under its belt and, as a company, it produces just a few thousand watches every year. The company was founded in 2002 by Nick and Giles English, both of who are serious aviation buffs. (One look at a selection of Bremont’s watches should be enough to convince you of the brothers’ irrepressible love of aviation.)
