Introducing the Bremont Supermarine Chrono Jet Watch
Thursday - 10 March 2022
Bremont has released two models under the new Supermarine Jet series. One of those is the Supermarine Chrono Jet watch - a 200-meter water-resistant high-risk military tool, clad in a black DLC-coated case and equipped with a chronograph and 24-hour functions.
The latest Bremont Supermarine watch has arrived. Designed for Special Forces personnel and those in need of a tool to assist with land and underwater military missions - this tactical and robust watch is part of a newly released duo. The other? A time and date watch with a GMT function named the S502 Jet watch.
When operating in the dead of night, the new Bremont Supermarine Chrono Jet watch is the perfect ally. Built for survival mode, the new Bremont Supermarine Chrono Jet watch has generous helpings of blue emission Super-LumiNova material applied to its hour markings and hands, plus a reliable 200-meter water resistance to assist with underwater missions. The 42mm model is geared for measuring elapsed time in crucial environments, surviving extreme weather conditions, tough terrain and of course, the darkness of the night. When there is no other source of light available, a watch like the Bremont Supermarine Chrono Jet watch suddenly becomes a vital piece of kit, especially for those like Bremont's brand ambassador, Jason Fox who has spent years serving as a Special Forces member, surviving some of the most testing of environments. Speaking for Bremont’s recent press release, he concludes;
“My time in the special forces was spent thriving in the dark. It offered us safety whilst enabling us to operate and succeed on missions in a covert way to surprise the enemy. When you operate at night you use night vision. It detaches you from reality and you’re transported to another world, you can see everything, but no one can see you. Technically your kit needs to work as hard as you do, particularly as night-time operations are frequently held over difficult terrain and in terrible conditions. Bremont is a brand I’ve worn for years, and the product never lets me down.”
As a crucial part of testing for every Bremont watch, the British manufacturer has been working with extreme explorers and adventurers for some time now, enlisting the help of specially trained individuals like Jason Fox and Former Royal Marines Commando, Aldo Kane to help uncover the real need for high-risk military tools like the new Bremont Supermarine Chrono Jet watch.
The new Bremont Supermarine Chrono Jet
Based on the original Supermarine Chrono design, the new Supermarine Chrono Jet watch has been carefully reimagined in the form of this anti-reflective black DLC-coated jet treated stainless steel model. In addition to a water-resistant reading of 200 meters, the watch also features a screw-down crown and screw-in caseback with a sapphire glass exhibition lens. A pair of screw-down push-pieces are in keeping with the sleek black aesthetic of the model’s case, whilst a domed anti-reflective and scratch-resistant sapphire crystal glass structure protects the surface of a black metal dial from damage.
Crafted from Bremont’s patented three-piece Trip-Tick construction, the case is topped with a bidirectional rotating bezel with a black ceramic inlay that features a 24-hour scale upon its surface. Designed to be used in conjunction with this 24-hour scale is a red arrow-tipped hand - a contrasting colour to the alternative burnt orange GMT hand seen in the S502 Jet watch. The rest of the dial’s details include blue emission Super-LumiNova-coated hour markers and gold-plated hands, a date window at 4:30 and a set of three silver-filled chronograph counters.
The trio of chronograph counters at positioned at 12, 6 and 9 o’clock offering 30-minute, 12-hour and small second functions respectively. The hand of the small seconds counter is also tipped in red to match the lollipop style second hand.
The new Bremont Supermarine Chrono Jet watch is powered by the Calibre BE-93-2AV, which produces a 42-hour power reserve and performs at a rate of 28,800 vibrations per hour. Shielded inside Bremont’s patented anti-shock movement mount, the engine features a nivaflex mainspring, a glucydor balance wheel and an anachron balance spring. The model is fitted on a black structured rubber strap with a black DLC-coated stainless steel fastening.
