2017 marked the first time in 178 years that renowned British event, Henley Royal Regatta, partnered with a small number of luxury brands. British Watch Company Bremont are the first Official Timekeeper in the Regatta’s established history. The event attracts thousands of visitors over five days and spectators will enjoy over 200 races of an international standard, including Olympians and crews new to the event.
Henley Royal Regatta was first held on the River Thames in 1839 and has been annual ever since. Originally staged by the Mayor and people of Henley as a public attraction with a fair and other amusements, the emphasis rapidly changed so that competitive amateur rowing became its main purpose. Today it has an unparalleled tradition and place in the hearts of top rowers around the world.
