Thread: Bremont Ronnie Wood Collection

  1. #101
    For the record, I quite like Bremont watches. Not enough to buy one but I admire what they have done. I just think our national treasure Ronnie is an overrated artist. But as many others have said, this is all highly subjective.

    I was at a get together at my Tudor AD last night but as they are also a Bremont AD this launch came up in discussion.

    Our sales guy claims he was told by their Bremont regional rep that all these pieces were sold at a private viewing event at Bremont HQ a few days ago.

    Now it is always advisable to take anything that comes out of Bremont with a heavy pinch of salt but nevertheless that's what was being claimed

    Paul Simonon is also an artist us Clash fans would pay over the odds for his stuff as well.
    Itís far more than just the value of the watch.

    at the risk of upsetting some fans, I don't like the look of the watches he has collaborate in , I also don't like any of Rw music or the band he is in (R stones ) at all , so I guess that rules me out of buying one even if I could afford one .

    The Faces arent too bad! That said I saw the Stones at the Olympic Stadium. Was actually far better than I had expected,

    Just stumbled across this thread much like the same way Ronnie appears to have stumbled through his paint box when doing these, looks like a pissed 6 year old has had a crack at them. 47 too many.

    Nothing at-all wrong with Bremont as a brand - they beautifully craft watches of no interest to me. Which is fab, cos I can't afford them!

    Nothing at-all wrong with Ronnie Wood, either. A good guitarist in a great band who continue to delight and astonish the World, mostly by not being dead yet.

    Ronnie Wood the dauber ... seriously? If he wasn't already famous for something he was actually good at, his art would feature in car-boot sales, not Sotheby's.

    The rest is just fan-ghurls getting soggy panties.

    Which is also fine, provided >£40K for puerile cartoons on otherwise-elegant wristwatches is where your Venn diagram happens to intersect...

    Stick to your art and music Ronnie. Obscene price that makes a mockery out of WIS. I thought I had an interest Bremont, but not now they've gone down the decadent route.

    Funnily... 40 years ago I used to work with one of Kenny Jones best mates, went to see Stevie Marriott (he was tiny too) a few times Ronnie was there. He was very down to earth in them days. Mind you that was a few million quid ago!

    In other art/watch news:

    https://www.theguardian.com/world/20...-watches-tal-r

    'The Danish artist Tal R has won an injunction against a pair of Faroese art provocateurs who wanted to cut up one of his paintings and use the canvas to make decorative faces for their line of designer wristwatches...'

    Courage is being scared to death but saddling up anyway.

    Hats off to Bremont for finding a novel way to separate rich people from their money.

    I'm not even sure I'd buy a Ronnie Wood Swatch for £45 LOL.
