A gold pocket watch owned by Admiral Lord Nelson is set to make an appearance at Bremont’s stand at Salon QP next month.
Bremont will showcase the watch to accompany the launch of its Victory watch at the show, which is set to take place at the Saatchi Gallery in west London.
Nelson’s pocket watch will be loaned to the brand from the National Museum of the Royal Navy in Portsmouth. It will be on show for two days, between November 8 and 9.
The gold pocket watch formerly belonging to Nelson was passed down to his daughter Horatia after his death in 1805. It was kept within the family until 1957 when it was presented to the Royal Navy Museum by one her great grandsons, where it remains today.
Bremont’s Victory watch is a limited edition model that features original oak timber and copper from the HMS Victory ship with parts of the proceeds going towards important restoration works.
