Surf’s up dude. Bremont has a new limited edition variant on the Supermarine dive model. The Waterman Apex is 500m resistant watch, with a beefy 43mm case diameter. It’s available in blue or black, 250 pieces each. Expensive at £4,795.
Here’s the word from Bremont;
“Tested by legendary big wave surfer and all round waterman Laird Hamilton, the Waterman Apex is a highly technical dive watch incorporating an automatic helium escape valve and crown protector, as well as boasting a 42-hour power reserve with GMT and date functionality.
The 43mm steel Trip-Tick® case incorporates a scratch resistant sapphire uni-directional bezel paired with a matt black dial subtly decorated with a shark fin motif amongst waves, nodding to the partnership with Bimini Shark Lab, the organisation that Bremont will be donating a percentage of sales towards in order to help continue their vital research.
Turning the watch over reveals its open sapphire case back through which the custom rotor can be seen, designed to reprise the dial with the shark fin motif in blue. Despite having an open case back, the Waterman Apex is water resistant to 500m with the movement being protected by Bremont’s patented anti-shock vibration mount technology. True to form, this is a watch that can be tested to extremes.”
