I had their Supermarine dive watch for some time. One of the best watches I have ever owned.

Nothing screams diving watch like a 24 hour bezel
It's a GMT. You prefer your GMT's without the 24hr bezel?

Maybe. To me GMT watches can have either a 24hr bezel, dial or rehaut--------
but diving watches should have 60 minute bezels (with or without ISO qualified markings) imo. Don't see how these "fulfils any professional diving requirements" with the tiny 60 minute rehaut markings .

Bremont markets their Supermarine line as divers watches hence my comment above.

The Bremont Supermarine divers watches are inspired by our Aviation principles. Each timepiece maintains the Bremont DNA with the Bremont Trip-Tick® case construction and beautifully finished chronometer-tested movement. The Supermarine range fulfils any professional diving requirements.

It doesn't matter that much because 1) you just time using the 0/lume pip and 2) nobody will ever dive with these.

They are using the Supermarine case...but it is tasked primarily as a GMT. I see no issue with that at all. There is no downside to a 500m WR GMT that can think of.

Likewise, nobody's ever going to wear one whilst flying the Concorde.

They will most likely be used to track home time while lounging in the resort pool.

...and a leather strap.
And a date and GMT hand?
Is this a dive watch or a GMT that can get wet?

Then it's a travesty and an international disgrace fitting a leather strap to this watch and it looks SO good!

Didn't one of you Aussies own a Bremont? Could have sworn it. I have long been interested in the brand, (at least from their seeming aviation related bent.) Not a bad looking timepiece at all, though the blue and green bezel is atrocious.

Yeah, I had one. It was an awesome watch.
