"Bremont is a brand fuelled by avgas and the spirit of Icarus. The fledgling British brand has their roots in the sky, as it were. But that doesn’t mean they’ve neglected other spheres of influence, including motorsports and, as we can see here, diving. The Supermarine (even their dive watches have an aviation tie-in) first entered the catalogue in 2010, in the form of the Supermarine 500, a large 43mm steel piece with a distinctive ‘crown-at-two’ case design. This year the Supermarine has evolved, with several new references joining the family — the S300 and the S301. These divers — while still having plenty of Bremont DNA, such as the Trip-Tick case — are much more traditional. They’re smaller, at 40mm across, and slimmer, with a 13mm height. And if the proportions are constrained, so too is the style. The S301 plays the vintage card, with its printed hour markers, lollipop seconds hands and a general air of world-weariness. As with pretty much everything Bremont create, it’s a strong, smart, design that plays to their strengths and is suitable for a lifetime of daily wear."
Bremont is the only boutique store that offered me a discount. It would have to be 50% to justify this. I'm super happy with my GS 9F for every day watch and would purchase Citizen Chronomaster w/paper dial if it ever reaches second hand market. I think Citizen is the one to watch (sic).
