“I just focus on what’s next and that ignites my passion for setting challenges – not just in climbing but also in life.” – Jake Meyer
It is no secret that every modern watch brand needs its own tagline, but it’s less common for that slogan to actually reflect the characteristic spirit of the timepieces. In the case of Bremont, “Tested Beyond Endurance”, is less of a clichéd catchphrase and more of a mission statement for the company. Whether flying high with the US Navy’s first female F-14 Tomcat fighter pilot Carey Lohrenz, fighting the elements in the Antarctic with polar adventurer Ben Saunders, or exploring the depths of the world’s oceans with Dr Timmy Gambin, each new Bremont watch is put through extreme paces by a growing army of ambassadors. One of the latest adventures for an already hard-working MB2 was an attempt to climb K2 by British climber Jake Meyer.
A man instantly at ease in any company, it comes as little surprise that in his job as a development consultant, Meyer works with clients around the world, helping to develop leadership qualities within organisations.
