Showing at WatchTime New York 2017: Bremont Supermarine Type 300 and 301

WatchTime New York, America’s largest luxury watch show, returns to Manhattan’s Gotham Hall on October 13-14 (click here for event details and to purchase tickets), and Great Britain’s own Bremont Watch Co. will be exhibiting at the event for the first time. Among the timepieces it will be showcasing are the new Supermarine Type 300 and Type 301 from its range of vintage-aircraft inspired divers’ watches.

The new Supermarine watches, preceded in the line by the larger and more heavily engineered Supermarine S500 and S2000 models, are a response to customers’ demands for sports watches with slightly smaller case dimensions, according to brand co-founder Nick English. The Type 300 derives its name from the historic “Type 300” prototype Spitfire aircraft developed by the Supermarine aircraft company in the 1930s. Its 40-mm case is scaled down from those of the S500 and S2000, which had 43-mm and 45-mm case diameters, respectively. The Type 300 case is also slimmer, at just 13 mm thick from crystal to caseback. Nevertheless, the new Supermarine case is professional-grade for diving, remaining water-resistant to 300 meters.

The new Supermarine watches are smaller and thinner than their predecessors, but water-resistant to 300 meters.

Two dial variations are available, black and blue; both versions also feature a laser-engraved ceramic insert for the unidirectional diving bezel in a color matching the dial’s. The case is in stainless steel; like Bremont’s other three-part “Trip-Tick” cases, it has a scratch-resistant DLC-treated case barrel. The crown screws down securely, and the sapphire crystal is domed. The solid caseback is graced with an engraved illustration of the famous Spitfire plane.

For divers who want both a smaller case and a more vintage look, there is the Type 301, which has Super-LumiNova-filled hour indices instead of Arabic numerals on its matte black dial. Both the Type 300 and the Type 301 are powered by Bremont Caliber BE-92AE, an automatic, chronometer-certified movement with a 38-hour minimum power reserve. All three new Supermarine dive watches are offered on stainless steel bracelets, calf leather straps, or NATO straps with pin buckles.

  1. Resident Of Southampton, England

    Hello Watchtime – just to let you know, as a resident of Southampton, the home of Supermarine, the engraving on the back of the watch is not of the Spitfire. It looks like one of the seaplanes the company used to produce to compete in the Schneider Trophy, a race which took place around the Isle of Wight. The Spitfire was developed using a lot of the technology from these planes.
