Always a fan favorite at WatchTime New York, British watchmaker Bremont this year returns to North America’s biggest watch event of the year, this time to unveil an updated edition within their popular Supermarine series. Fully dubbed the Supermarine GMT S302, the updated diver-travelers watch consists of three color options, including a primarily steel edition, a full DLC variation, and a two-tone DLC and steel model. Bremont will join over thirty-five other brands with its latest release at the event, with tickets for Saturday and Sunday still available now, here.
On the wrist, the new S302 features a familiar 40mm Trip-Tick case water resistant to 300m, with its design reminiscent of both previous Supermarine launches and Bremont watches at large. A stepped, screw-down crown and contrasting use of beveled polishing and brushed finishing adds to the multi-dimensional aesthetic of the watch. On the primarily steel edition, a day/night green and blue aluminum bezel insert defines the look, while the two DLC models opt for a black ceramic bezel insert with contrasting cream numerals. The fully DLC edition is available on either a leather or rubber strap, while the other two models come equipped on either of those or a stainless steel bracelet; the strap profile on each model is slightly slimmer, with the new design providing a more comfortable fit on the wrist.
Underneath a domed sapphire crystal we come to the Supermarine display of the watch, presented in either a blue or black colorway depending on the model and with Super-LumiNova details throughout. Printed geometric indices mark each of the hours, while an outer curved minute ring with new orange-accented quarter markings work to increase quick-legibility of the display. A subtle date indicator adds daily utility towards the 3 o’clock position, while an orange-tipped GMT hands complements the local time hands, altogether providing a look as good looking as it is useful.
The new movement powering the travel diver is an updated edition of the previous modified Sellita caliber used in the original S302. Dubbed as a modified Calibre 11 1/2’’’ BE-932AV, the new mechanism features a 50-hour power reserve, up from 38-hours in the previous iteration of the watch. The automatic movement also features a chronometer rating, whereas the previous movement did not. According to the brand, the updated power reserve and accuracy rating are a result of improved “pallet efficiency and barrel optimization,” with these mechanical improvements to be expanded to Bremont’s other watches over time.
The new Bremont Supermarine GMT S302 will be available this fall, with the two-tone version limited to 400 editions and the other options to come as regular production models. Pricing for the new collection ranges from $3,750 to $4,450 depending on the model and strap configuration.
