The Bremont Supermarine S2000 may just be the most capable dive watch produced. Yes, I did just say that a brand new model from a relatively small British manufacturer beat out iconic time pieces like the Rolex Submariner and the Omega Seamaster. A sample of Bremont’s newly released watch passed through GearTested HQ and we were thoroughly impressed. The craftsmanship was exceptional and noticeable the moment you pull the 2000m (that’s over a mile) dive watch out of its soft grain leather case.
With a 45mm case the S2000 was a first for Bremont. For a watch that can tell time 2 kilometers underwater needs to be large but usually this means bulky. Bremont came up with a design that wears a lot smaller than its specified size. The crystal which needs to be domed to be strong enough to take the pressure does not distort the dial what so ever. I would go as far as to say it looks as if it isn’t even there. Speaking of the face, all of the indexes and markers have a superLumiNova coating, making them extremely bright for dive work or night use.
On the inside, Bremont puts a Modified calibre 13 , 25 jewels automatic chronometer movement with 38 hours of power reserve. The movemen sits in an anti-magnetic faraday cage and an anti-shock case mount. The case also has a built in helium release valve.
