When you’re a fan of something, you downplay it unless you’re 100% sure about something. I am a huge bremont fan, and i agree that false statements add fuel to the fire. Everyone should get in the habit of checking their facts.
On another bremont note, i would like to offer that the idea of criticism for “fake heritage” is just another form of snobbery and exclusion. Bremont cannot be in the club because they didn’t supply watches to the german airforce in ww2? That’s perfectly ok with me. “Heritage” is a surrogate for money and exclusivity, things i am happier not to flaunt.
