By TLex As the first official British timing partner of the America’s Cup since 1851, Bremont has launched a new collection, which includes 2 new models based on the Supermarine, the Oracle I and ORACLE II made in celebration of their new partnership with the America’s Cup Event Authority and ORACLE TEAM USA, which will see them become the Official Timing Partner of the 35th America’s Cup and ORACLE TEAM USA.
The Bremont Oracle I is a purpose built diver / sailing watch that has been constructed to be used either on the water, or under it, as a reliable piece of equipment for any diver or yachtsman. The design is based on the Supermarine range that is used by divers and military around the world owing to its durability and robustness.
Incorporating the ORACLE TEAM USA branding on the new off white dial together with applied index numbering has produced a modern yet classical sailing watch. The red tipped minute hand and beautifully cast case back are also clear indications that this is a team associated watch. The watch is designed with a sapphire crystal uni-directional rotating bezel to give a clean and distinguished look.
The Oracle I is built using a highly technical 500m water-resistant case, incorporating the Bremont anti-shock movement mount and anti-magnetic Faraday cage which encases the beautifully finished, chronometer tested, BE-36AE movement. Each case also incorporates an automatic Helium Escape Valve.
