The Watch
Steadfast reliability is the cornerstone of the Bremont design ethos for its range of professional-grade tool watches, and it has the stats to back it up. Through the years, the British watchmaker has developed tried-and-tested watches ready to face the most demanding of circumstances, crafting specialty timepieces worn by the likes of Navy Clearance Divers, Special Forces Units, the Royal Marines, and rugged adventurers alike. 
The first diving watch Bremont ever produced was the 43mm Supermarine 500 which was introduced back in 2009. Co-Founders Nick and Giles English had wanted to build a robust but beautifully engineered diving watch that was very practical in design, but also tied into the brand’s strong aviation heritage. The watch had to also hold its own against any other mechanical professional diving watch in terms of engineering, design and price point. The range was named as a tribute to the brothers’ love of the iconic British aircraft manufacturer responsible for the Supermarine S6B Schneider Trophy Seaplane and of course the incredible Supermarine Spitfire.
This particular example dates to 2018 and is accompanied by the original full set of boxes and paperwork.
