Yesterday in Los Angeles, Bremont unveiled the latest limited edition update to its Supermarine range of dive watches. Dubbed the Waterman, the new timepiece was designed with input from world-famous free-diver, adventurer, big-wave surfer, and ocean environmentalist Mark Healey. Notably, Healey was able to further test the proprietary Supermarine 500 sapphire crystal case back technology that was first revealed in the Supermarine Endurance released earlier this year.
Like the Supermarine Endurance, the new model features a GMT hand, but instead of a black dial with orange accents, it has a striking white dial with deep blue applied indices. Other than the remarkable 500 meter water resistant case, the watch has a helium release valve, an anti-shock vibration mount, and a scratch resistant sapphire uni-directional bezel making a potent companion for the deepest of depths. Inside the 43 mm timepiece is the COSC-certified BE-93-2AE movement with a 42 hour power reserve.
The Bremont Supermarine Waterman is priced at $5,995 and a portion of the proceeds will go towards the Sustainable Coastlines Hawaii foundation.
