Bremont - Supermarine S501
The Supermarine 501 is Bremont’s first marine watch. Nick and Giles English wanted to build an “amphibious watch” that was both classical in its design and aviation roots but very effective as a diving watch. The design of the Supermarine has been built using Bremont’s unique Trip-Tick® three-piece case construction which gives it a water resistance depth of 500m or 1660ft, but keeps the classic curved profile of the 42mm case design which is so distinctive to Bremont. An elegant crown protector has been built onto the side of the inner barrel, and following on from other Bremont models, the watch case has been specially treated for hardness using Bremont’s B-EBE2000 technology.
