Bremont 2021 Watch Releases

Watches & Wonders 2021 has put Bremont on centre stage for several reasons this year. Not only has the British watch manufacturer released several stunning additions to its core lines, but limited editions with purposeful meanings (in true Bremont fashion) have also joined this mix. Bremont also opened its new 35,000 sq. ft Manufacturing and Technology Centre earlier in the year. Nicknamed “The Wing”, the manufacturing facilities was unveiled by the use of a drone that soared through the lair, revealing that the facilities would not only be for used the development of future masterpieces but would also double-up as a walk-through experience. Enthusiasts will be able to visually learn how Bremont watches come to be the perfect timekeeping instruments that they are by visiting Oxfordshire’s Henley-on-Thames where the centre now resides. Aside from that, however, there are more pressing things to talk about, like the new offerings Bremont revealed during April 2021.

 

The new Supermarine Chrono houses an extensively tested chronograph complication that has been well-utilized within the marine industry. On top of that, the British brand extended its Armed Forces collection with a stunning Argonaut Azure timepiece. Back to dive watches, and the Bremont Supermarine S302 celebrates more of the vintage-inspired elements we have come to know and love from this series, while the new Bremont SOLO Lady K watch showcases diamonds in a lady’s core collection for the very first time. Let’s take a look at the 2021 Bremont watch releases in a little more detail…

 

Supermarine Chrono

 

 

The Supermarine watch was Bremont’s first sports watch. Since it launched in 2009 it has gone from strength to strength, withstanding extreme conditions and having been tested far beyond normal limits of wear. Suffice to say, the Bremont Supermarine watch has proved its versatility and its worth a million times over since then. This is thanks to features like a three-piece case construction, clear luminous dial markings and a selection of strong materials. Non-typical of a sports watch, however, is the Supermarine Chrono watch’s relatively slim case, measuring a depth of just 15.8mm. On top of this, there is a blue and black chronograph dial variation to choose from, as well as a choice to be made between a blue or black rubber strap or a steel bracelet to match its 200-meter water-resistant case. The BE-54AE automatic chronometer offers a 42-hour power reserve and provides a 30-minute function at 12 o’clock, balanced by a 12-hour totaliser at 6 o’clock.

 

The new Bremont Supermarine Chrono watches bring other functional features to the forefront of the design, as well as their aquatic aspirations. They offer a second time zone function that can be easily read off the red-tipped GMT hand. So, if you’re not partial to a spot of diving, you may acquire the Supermarine Chrono watch from Bremont for global exploration instead. A bidirectional rotating ceramic bezel is finished in a colour to match its respective dial, while the legible bronze hands, filled with Super-LumiNova, are really easy to read. As one of Bremont’s new watch releases for 2021, the Supermarine Chrono is clearly a tribute to the British aircraft manufacturer who designed the Supermarine 6SB, just like other models from the same line.

 

‘SAS: Who Dares Wins’ star, Jason Fox is the latest ambassador to sport a Bremont watch on the wrist. Having put the Supermarine Chrono watch to the test, he explains:

 

“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 several 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.” 

 

Armed Forces Argonaut Azure

 

 

If you’ve been following Bremont’s partnership with the Ministry of Defence (MoD), you’ll be aware that it’s the only watchmaker in the world to be granted permission of bearing the Heraldic Badges of all three services on its design. The emblems of the Royal Navy, British Army and the Royal Air Force couldn’t be more at home than on those models from the Armed Forces watch collection. This latest addition to the line follows in the footsteps of former models and is inspired by the original ‘Dirty Dozen’ watches commissioned for the British Army during the Second World War. The 42mm stainless steel watch features a magnetizing blue azure dial adorned with mint-coloured C1 Super-LumiNova-coated hands and a striking orange-coloured minute hand.

 

The new Bremont 2021 release features a light blue and orange internal rotating bezel with luminous markings, a strong domed anti-reflective sapphire crystal glass front and a decorated caseback boasting the MoD Heraldic Badges. The models hardened stainless steel case is also 300-meter water-resistant and attaches to an orange Temple Island rubber strap that secures comfortably with a stainless steel buckle.

 

Supermarine S302

 

 

GMT watches seem to be the order of the day at Bremont. The new Supermarine S302 watches are primed for global travel but also ready to plunge into the sea. The Supermarine line is a very design-specific category of watches. The edges of the steel lugs have been lovingly polished while the matte black ceramic dive scale insert with a lumed pip is executed in warming beige and fresh white markings. A Bremont propeller logo on the cap of the crown is matched with a charming copper thread running around its barrel, and the watch is cleverly designed so that the GMT function can be used independently of the diving bezel. This is helpful if you’re a keen diver or an avid traveller – but even more so if you’re both.

 

The new Bremont Supermarine S302 has an assured retro vibe. Whether you choose the NATO strap, the metal bracelet or the vintage leather band option - the watch imparts a strong nostalgic design, reminiscent of much earlier dive tools. ‘P-51’ Super LumiNova is used in the hands and indexes of this 300-meter water-resistant dive watch from Bremont. Despite looking ready to make a splash, the watch’s DNA remains faithful to aviation principles. A COSC-certified chronometer ticks away flawlessly inside Bremont’s Trip-Tick® three-piece case construction, making this new addition a perfect day-in, day-out companion.

 

SOLO Lady K

 

 

Why do women’s luxury watches often have to compromise on a beautiful mechanical movement? There are some questions we will never know the answer to. But at least when it comes to manufacturers like Bremont, we know that a woman’s needs in a timepiece are being met on an equal playing field to that of a man’s. The Bremont SOLO Lady K range is a family of beautifully proportioned 34mm models powered by chronometer-rated movements. What’s more these ticking hearts can be admired through the back of a sapphire crystal exhibition lens. The new additions to the clan are two mother of pearl iterations. A white mother of pearl and a black Tahitian mother of pearl dial are both surrounded by a diamond-set frame for the first time.

 

The Bremont SOLO “Lady K” name is taken from a boat lovingly handcrafted by the Bremont brothers’ father, who gifted it to their mother. By combining her artistic and adventurous spirit with her husband’s unquenchable passion for the aviation industry, the SOLO Lady K watches long to be cherished by those with a similar flair for life.

 

The vivacious models are both crafted from stainless steel and set with a total of 60 round brilliant-cut diamonds on a perfectly round bezel. The diamond theme continues into the dial itself where the hour markers are replaced by more scintillating precious stones and held under a glass crafted from sapphire crystal. Calling to mind pictures of the open sea, the rough waves of the ocean can be admired in the iridescent tones of these mother of pearl dials. Each display features a date window at 6 o’clock, a Roman numeral at 12 o’clock and a sophisticated stainless steel bracelet that secures with a robust folding clasp.
