Bremont WATERMAN & Mark Healey

This is the new Waterman from Bremont, the ultimate waterman’s watch by name and nature. The 300 piece Limited Edition with its GMT hand and deep-blue applied markers has been beautifully engineered by the British watchmaker and tested rigorously in the harshest of ocean environments by their new brand ambassador, Mark Healey.



The Waterman is the latest model to join Bremont’s Supermarine family and so utilizes their S500 (as worn by numerous military units and explorers, the world over) for its core architecture.



Divers features include: a screw-down crown with integrated crown-guard, an open Sapphire crystal case-backed, 500 meters of water-resistance, a Helium Escape Valve, an anti-shock vibration mount and a scratch resistant Sapphire unidirectional diver’s bezel.



Celebrating life on and above the waves, the Bremont Waterman has been designed with ocean protection and preservation in-mind. Being an all-purpose Limited Edition dive watch, it hopes to add to the increasing awareness of the issues that the oceans are facing, globally.



Plastic debris accumulates in 5 ocean garbage patches, the largest one being the Great Pacific Garbage Patch. This plastic has already had a detrimental effect on ecosystems, health and economies. Solving it requires a combination of addressing the source, and cleaning up what has already accumulated in the ocean.



Started in 2010, ‘Sustainable Coastlines Hawaii’ is a grassroots, local non-profit organization run by a small team of dedicated staff and supported by passionate volunteers.



The charity inspires local communities to care for their coastlines through fun, hands-on beach cleanups as well as coordinating educational programs, team building corporate clean-ups, ocean plastic recycling, waste diversion services and public awareness campaigns.



The Bremont Waterman will be available in late Summer 2018. Thoughts? Nice watch indeed. Looks best on the bracelet, imo. I wonder if Bremont will be donating any of the watch’s sales proceeds to the above cause?
