The Bremont Supermarine Waterman

A new GMT model joins Bremont’s Supermarine family of divers.

Quick Take

This limited edition of 300 pieces from Bremont is a new take on the Supermarine diver, simply called the Waterman. Bremont has worked with Mark Healy, a noted free diver, surfer, and environmentalist, in testing the watch. A portion of the proceeds from the Waterman’s sales will benefit Sustainable Coastlines Hawaii, a charitable clean water initiative too. As you can see, in addition to indications for the hours, minutes, seconds, and date, this watch also comes with a GMT function. It’s also a COSC-certified chronometer. Bremont has cased its BE-93-2AE GMT movement (a modified ETA 2892-A2) in the durable S500 case style, notable for its crown placement at two o’clock.

Initial Thoughts

From the moment I first saw a Bremont Supermarine in the original light green and black colors, which would have been some time before 2010, I’ve always thought it was a fine watch design. The brand was still fairly new back then and was starting to take off, so to speak. This watch closely echoes that original design, though obviously in different colors. I think this new GMT diver is also a nice looking watch. There is, though, the matter of its 43mm case size, which is just large enough to take it out of the running for plenty of watch buyers. The press release for this only specifies two strap offerings – blue rubber and blue Kevlar with red stitching (which appears to be mounted onto a leather backing) – but there are also a handful of images showing the watch on a stainless steel bracelet, so that appears to be an option as well.
