Bremont S500 Bamford Special Edition
A FUSION OF BRITISH
Limited to 250 pieces
A truly British collaboration
Tested Beyond Endurance
Limited to just 250 pieces, the Bremont S500 Bamford Special Edition represents an exciting fusion of British design from Bremont and Bamford Watch Department. The collaboration was born out of a long-standing friendship between Bremont Co-Founders Nick and Giles English and George Bamford, as well as a mutual respect and admiration for each other’s craft.
3 year warranty
Bremont focuses purely on beautifully made mechanical movements and every watch in our core collection has passed each of the rigorous precision tests necessary for the ISO 3159 chronometer designation. Every movement is finished to the highest levels of craftsmanship and all are guaranteed to within -4 and +6 seconds per day. For this reason Bremont is one of the few watch makers to offer at least a 3-year warranty on every timepiece.
Proudly made in the UK
Great Britain has a wonderful history when it comes to watch making and has probably been the home to more advances in horology than any other nation. Bremont is determined to play a pivotal role in the reinvigoration of this industry on British shores and as a result, Bremont manufactures parts at its Parts Manufacturing Facility and every Bremont is hand-build and tested before leaving the Henley-on-Thames workshop.

FIT FOR PURPOSE
True to all Bremont S500s, this high-performance dive watch is water resistant to 500m. The timepiece features Bremont’s signature Trip-Tick case construction which houses the Modified Calibre BE-36AE as well as a uni-directional ceramic bezel, Protective patented antishock movement mount and Automatic helium escape valve and crown protector.
The DLC finish is beautifully contrasted with the ‘California Blue’ Super-LumiNova® across the newly styled hands and indexes, a design first for both Bremont and Bamford.The extensive use of black, uniquely accented with blue, marks this timepiece as an unmistakable Bamford collaboration.
The range was named as a tribute to the founders’ love of the iconic British aircraft manufacturer responsible for the Supermarine S6B Schneider Trophy Seaplane and of course the incredible Supermarine Spitfire. For this reason, an etching of the Supermarine Seaplane can be seen on the closed case back of the new Bremont S500 Bamford.

REINVIGORATING THE BRITISH WATCH INDUSTRY
It is not completely unexpected to find that the world sets its time by Greenwich and not by Geneva. Whilst Geneva and Switzerland may be producing the vast majority of luxury wristwatches today, this certainly wasn’t always the case. In 1800 half of the world's watches, around 200,000 pieces a year, were produced on British shores by British watchmakers, which is an incredible statistic. Another wonderful statistic is that probably over 60-70% of the innovation in a modern day mechanical watch has come from Britain, including every major escapement design. Bremont's mission has always been to play a part in bringing back watchmaking to British shores.The Full story
