Bremont is delighted to announce its appointment as Official Timing Partner to the 35th America’s Cup and to the defending champion, ORACLE TEAM USA. Bremont has embarked on a very exciting project to produce a special edition series of timepieces to celebrate its involvement.
Renowned as the oldest trophy in international sport the America’s Cup first took place in 1851 on the waters off England’s south coast. Today this exciting and compelling event remains firmly at the forefront of the international sporting calendar, with cutting edge catamarans crewed by world-class sailors fighting to win the historic trophy.
The global America’s Cup World Series begins in July 2015 in Portsmouth, UK, followed by the America’s Cup Qualifiers and Play-Offs leading up to the dramatic 2017 final in Bermuda. “The addition of an Official Timing Partner is a key commercial milestone for the America’s Cup,” said Harvey Schiller, the Commercial Commissioner of the event. “Along with our recently announced broadcast agreements momentum is building as we head into the summer and towards the first America’s Cup World Series racing in Portsmouth, England in July.”
