Bremont adds its first sports chronograph into the brand’s iconic Supermarine dive collection, a range that has gone from strength to strength since its launch in 2009. The unique design and capabilities to withstand extreme conditions have been extensively tested out in the field by elite military squadrons as well as top dive units around the world.
A considerable amount of design detail has been carefully incorporated into the 43mm case of the new Supermarine Chrono. The three-piece case construction, with DLC coated middle case barrel, follows Bremont’s signature design, however the sleek case measuring a mere 15.8mm is not typical of a sports chronograph which is normally housed in something much thicker. The Supermarine Chrono uses a chronometer rated La Joux Perret 7754 calibre chronograph movement with GMT functionality, appealing to global explorers and style seekers alike. The watch is available in both a black and blue dial variation and features a bi-directional ceramic and etched bezel, clearly displaying the markings for the 24hour functionality.
The Supermarine Chrono has been designed to be worn with either an integrated bracelet or a rubber strap. The clear bronze hands are filled with Superluminova for increased readability, even with the sapphire crystal open case back, the watch is water resistant to 200 meters. The Bremont Supermarine dive collection was named as a tribute to the iconic British aircraft manufacturer responsible for the Supermarine S6B Schneider Trophy Seaplane and of course the incredible Supermarine Spitfire.
Working with extreme adventurers and explorers has always been a key tenet of the Bremont brand DNA and a crucial part of the product testing. Former Royal Marine Commando, ex Special Forces Sergeant and current ‘SAS: Who Dares Wins’ star, Jason Fox is the latest ambassador to join Bremont’s impressive line-up. Jason not only trains recruits through the most gruelling of challenges on the hit TV show ‘SAS: Who Dares Wins’ but he is also a best-selling author. Jason joined the forces at 16 years old and went on to serve for 20 years, flying through the selection process into the Special Forces. He has planned and led operations including hostage rescue, counter terrorism, counter insurgency, maritime counter terrorism, surveillance, body guarding and counter narcotic missions to name a few of his many impressive achievements. In his role as an official Bremont ambassador, Jason will be sporting the new Supermarine Chrono.
Jason Fox quote, “As a long-standing friend of the brand I’ve been familiar with the product range for some time and have been wearing Bremont for a number of years already. I have been ‘tested beyond endurance’ my entire life so can fully relate to the brand ethos. I admire and respect what Nick and Giles (Bremont Co-Founders) have managed to achieve, and I can vouch for the quality of the product which has never let me down to date. The Supermarine Chrono is tough, durable, easy to read in hectic situations, reliable in tough situations and it looks slick.”
