Celebrate 20 Years of B.R.M Chronographes with a Limited Edition Collection

We celebrate 20 years of B.R.M Chronographes with a limited edition collection and anniversary logo.

The Night It all Began

The best ideas often come to creative people when they least expect them. This was the case for the mastermind behind the French brand B.R.M Chronographes, one sleepless night in 2003. Bernard Richards, who had previously worked for other prestigious brands, sketched out his first idea for a timepiece, the GP40, on that night 20 years ago – and so began the adventure of B.R.M Chronographes at Richards’ home in Vexin, France.

It is his passion for motorsports, tireless creativity and thirst for innovation that drive the brand’s style. He confirms that his goal, even back then, was to offer automatic wristwatches with bold designs that carry the spirit of racing and come up to the high standards of the industry.

One Idea Becomes 40,000 Ideas

With this drive, B.R.M Chronographes developed among others the first three-hand watch with shock absorbers, the very first automatic watch suitable for golf and the first automatic model with a “floating movement”.

Today, 20 years later, there are over 40,000 B.R.M Chronographes on the wrists of watch lovers and motorsport fanatics alike. The brand has been the recipient of numerous prizes, such as the prestigious Entreprise du Patrimoine Vivant (Living Heritage Company) label. Bernard Richards reflects on with pride; “I’d like to thank all the people who have helped me establish this manufacture – an artisanal French manufacture with an international profile. I could never have done it alone. My sincerest appreciation goes to our clients, who inspire us to new heights every day. My gratitude to our loyal partners for their unfailing support, to the drivers who race under our colors and thrill us with their exploits, and to our watchmaker, who’s been with us since the early days. I am thankful to all our passionate collaborators who are devoted to the brand, and to my family, who lend me their support every day.”
