As a fan – nay, lover – of the sea, the Bremont Waterman and its new spokesfish/free diver/conservationist dude, Mark Healy, really hit the spot. This simple GMT piece features water resistance up to 500 meters and is as uniquely Bremont-styled as any watch you could imagine.
The edition is limited to 300 pieces and includes a nice blue rubber strap and a deep blue color scheme. The entire thing is surprisingly elegant for a diver, taking the best of Bremont’s aviator styles and mixing them in with that strange, wet lady, the sea.
A percentage of sales will go to Sustainable Coastlines Hawaii, a group dedicated to removing plastics from the ocean.
The Bremont Waterman is designed to celebrate life on and indeed under the water and fundamentally to help contribute towards protecting our oceans’ legacy. The all-purpose Limited Edition diving watch hopes to add to the increasing awareness of the issues that our oceans are facing all over the globe. Rubbish accumulates in 5 ocean garbage patches, the largest one being the Great Pacific Garbage Patch. If left to circulate, the plastic will impact our ecosystems, health and economies. Solving it requires a combination of addressing the source, and cleaning up what has already accumulated in the ocean. Started in 2010, ‘Sustainable Coastlines Hawaii’ is a grassroots, local non-profit organisation run by a small team of dedicated staff and supported by passionate volunteers. The charity inspires local communities to care for their coastlines through fun, hands-on beach cleanups as well as coordinating educational programmes, team building corporate clean-ups, ocean plastic recycling, waste diversion services and public awareness campaigns.
The watch runs a Modified calibre 11 1⁄4’’’ BE-93-2AE and is C.O.S.C chronometer tested. This means it’s been tested to multiple positions for accuracy. It has a unique crown at 2 o’clock, an interesting departure from the norm. You’ll be able to grab one for $5,995 on August 1, 2018.
