In an era of domination by the mega-groups, which privately-owned watch brand is most admired in the UK?
The question saw Bremont, Maurice Lacroix, Michel Herbelin, Oris, Raymond Weil and Reservoir competing for the 2019 WatchPro Award for Independent Watch Brand of the Year.
Only retailers were allowed to vote for watch brands in the WatchPro Awards, and they were asked to consider the quality of products, service, support. sales and marketing when choosing which brands they most admire.
Two brands dominated the poll, and from a total of 140 votes cast, Bremont was narrowly beaten into second place by a single percentage point by Oris.
The Award was collected on the night by Oris UK sales manager Paul Thurlow and his team.
