Bremont announces the arrival of the second generation of the Supermarine S302, which now appears in three new variants, one of which is a limited edition.
The new Supermarine S302, which on the outside and inside is almost the same as the first generation, brings some new features, among the most obvious is the new 24-hour bezel that now allows the watch to offer three different time zones (one more than the previous generation) and a 60-minute inner rehaut that allows users to continue enjoying all the features of a diving watch, taking advantage of the same 300m of water resistance as before.
On the outside, the stainless steel case maintains its three-piece construction and dimensions of 40mm in diameter, 13mm in thickness and 49mm in lug-to-lug distance. Front sapphire crystal, unidirectional bezel, stepped screw-down crown, screwed case back engraved with a hydroplane and 300m water resistance.
The dial has the same clean layout, with printed hour markers and hands filled with Super-LumiNova, a lollipop centre seconds hand, a date window right next to the crown and the extra central GMT hand with an arrow-shaped tip and orange outline.
As for the different variants, there are two regular versions, one that features a blue dial and a bi-colour aluminium insert bezel in green and blue, and the S302 Jet version that comes with a black DLC coated case, a black ceramic insert bezel and a matching dial with beige lume. Finally, the 400-piece edition was made in collaboration with Ocean Ramsey, a marine biologist and professional free-diver who is also the brand’s ambassador, with part of the proceeds going towards the “Save The Turtles International” program. This exclusive edition features a grey dial and bezel to which luminescent material in a beige tone similar to that of the Jet edition has been added.
Inside, the new second-generation Supermarine S302 comes equipped with the modified ETA2893 automatic movement that is chronometer-certified, operating at 28,800 Vph and offering up to 50 hours of power reserve.
The blue regular edition and limited edition are offered with three different strap options, including a rubber strap, leather strap or steel bracelet. In contrast, the Jet version only offers rubber or leather strap options. Prices range from €3,900 for the regular blue version on the strap option, which is the cheapest option, and €4,600 for the limited edition with a steel bracelet, the most expensive option.
