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.

    Description

    This unique special edition timepiece represents a distinct twist on Bremont’s signature Supermarine S500, combining Bamford’s passion for vibrant lume and DLC finish with Bremont’s tactical and notoriously robust diving range. The DLC finish is beautifully contrasted with the ‘California Blue’ Super-LumiNova® across the newly styled hands and indexes, befitting for its California dial, a design first for both Bremont and Bamford. The highly legible dial is enhanced by increased luminosity as a result of its ‘layered dial’ construction. Instead of a single plate, a layered dial is comprised of a solid disc of luminous material which is covered with a plate with index apertures to expose the lume as characters. This layered design achieves incredible lume performance and adds a lovely visual depth to the dial. The extensive use of black DLC, uniquely accented with blue, marks this timepiece as an unmistakable Bamford collaboration.

    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.
