A Closer Look at the Bremont S502 Jet Watch
Thursday - 10 March 2022
The stealthy black anti-reflective DLC-coated steel case of the new S502 Jet watch from Bremont comes integrated with a helium escape valve, a patented antishock movement mount, and a helium escape valve for carrying out high-risk military night operations.
You could say that given the devastating Russian attack on Ukraine over recent days, there could be no better time for a watchmaker like Bremont to release a new series of watches dedicated to tactical military missions and night operations. A reliable piece of kit to assist with night vision. An instrument that blends into the darkness. A tool capable of saving your life. The new Bremont S502 Jet and Supermarine Chrono Jet watches are both robust and tactical. These anti-reflective black DLC-coated models crafted from stainless steel are a design concept created by the Bremont brothers, whose ample expertise and knowledge in the field of military and aviation timekeeping comes very naturally. Both models measure a 43mm diameter and are equipped for daring underwater missions as well as land-bound tasks and each can keep track of a second time zone. Following in the footsteps of the trusty Supermarine DNA – Bremont ventures further into the realm of military wristwatches with these two new tools; the S502 Jet watch – a three-handed time and date watch with a GMT function, and the Supermarine Chrono Jet watch – a time and date chronograph with a 24-hour bezel. It’s the Bremont S502 Jet watch that we’re going to take a look at in this article.
“…blending into the night.”
The Bremont S502 Jet watch is perfect for blending into the night. What’s more, it has a superior water-resistant capability and an additional GMT function for keeping track of another time zone. Whether you’re wearing this watch for land or underwater missions, or enjoying its sleek black outfit as a statement piece, it’s bound to turn a head or two. Its sleek black palette features a simple three-handed time and date layout, with the date residing at 3 o’clock and the nickel hands treated in a vintage ’51’ lume material. When senses are heightened in the dead of night, the burnt orange GMT hand delivers quick and essential information at a glance, as does the SuperLumiNova-coated applied indexes around the hour track, treated with lashings of blue emission Super-LumiNova. The central section of the dial is raised and has been treated with a tapestry-effect upon its surface, donating a three-dimensional effect across the dial. In addition to this, the lollipop second hand stands out against the burnt orange GMT hand and the Bremont lettering is positioned in its usual place of 12 o’clock.
“…any special op’s best ally”
The new Bremont S502 Jet watch is any special op’s best ally at night. Designed to meld into a camouflage uniform or a diving suit, the case, with its 500-meter water resistance, houses a modified calibre shielded within a patented antishock movement mount. The Calibre BE-93-2AV features a Nivaflex mainspring, anachron balance spring, and glucydor balance. The movement performs at a rate of 28,800 vibrations per hour and provides a 42-hour power reserve. On top of the model’s Trip-Tick case construction, treated with a DLC scratch-resistant finish, is a unidirectional rotating bezel in black. The black ceramic insert features the diver’s 60-minute scale in blue emission Super-LumiNova material. The watch sits at a height on the wrist of 16.5mm and features a domed anti-reflective and scratch-resistant sapphire crystal glass front. Certified to ISO 3159 standards, the watch also comes equipped with a helium escape valve at 2 o’clock and a crown protection system. The new Bremont S502 Jet watch comes fitted on a textured black rubber strap with a black DLC-coated stainless steel fastening, promising a secure fit against the wrist.
