British luxury watch brand, Bremont, have always been inspired by a passion for flying and aviation, but in 2009, they launched their very first dive watch; The Supermarine. Still based upon their aviation principles and reflecting their love of historic aircraft, their range of dive watches pay tribute to the British aircraft manufacture responsible for the Supermarine S6B Schneider Trophy Seaplane and the Supermarine Spitfire.

The Supermarine S500 was Bremont’s very first marine watch, combining a classic style with technical diving features in order to create a well-rounded dive watch, complete with a water resistance to 500 meters. It quickly became an incredibly popular watch, not only for diving purposes, but also for those seeking a good looking, high quality luxury watch.

After the success of the S500, Bremont decided to take their diver’s timepiece to the next level with the introduction of the Supermarine S2000 early last year. The S500 was refreshed and re-engineered with professional divers in mind and is able to go even further beyond the surface to an incredible depth of 2000 meters. We can clearly see the original Supermarine within the updated model as its design is incredibly similar, just with an increased bezel size of 45mm. The main differences between the S500 and S2000 are all technical, allowing Bremont’s marine innovation to rise to the surface amongst the sea of dive watches.

Just like the S500, the Supermarine S2000 has been built using Bremont’s unique Trip-Tick 3-piece case construction that enables it to be water resistant to 2000 meters underwater. It features the classic curved case profile that has become a distinct Bremont feature. Its Swiss-made movement is housed within an anti-magnetic Faraday cage, that protects the mechanism from shocks and pressure at great depths and allows the watch to handle all underwater conditions. The stainless steel case features an anti-reflective, scratch-resistant sapphire crystal dial cover and a sapphire uni-directional rotating bezel. All hands and indices are coated with Super-LumiNova to ensure maximum legibility in low lighting underwater.

The watch itself is a true reflection of Bremont’s own motto: ‘Tested Beyond Endurance’, as it demonstrates its ability to go beyond other dive watches and reach new depths, proving itself as an impressive and iconic dive timepiece. Bremont as a brand ensure that all of their watches are tested in conditions that exceed the demands placed on a conventional wristwatch and they are always striving to take their timepieces to the next level. It’s therefore no surprise that the Bremont Supermarine S2000 has become one of the most loved dive watches of its time.

Thanks Ernie!

I put my name down for the Supermarine 500 when it was first announced and received one of the first off the line in October / November 2009. Its one shortcoming was the lack of a lumed seconds hand, which has been remedied in the S2000. I remember the testing results on the S500 were insane: good performance up to 140 atmospheres, with deformation coming at 145, 147 and 150 for the three that were tested to destruction. Incredible performance for a 500m-rated watch!

Love to know what the results were for the S2000...
