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.
Bremont has released the Waterman Apex II in collaboration with brand ambassador Laird Hamilton, a celebrated innovator and guiding genius of crossover board sports including tow-in surfing, stand-up paddle boarding and hydrofoil boarding. Laird is the ultimate waterman who continuously pushes himself beyond limits and expands all possibilities within the sport.
The limited edition features a matte black dial decorated with a shark fin motif amongst waves and framed by a new Harbour Blue dial flange which reprises its Harbour Blue integrated rubber strap. The Super-LumiNova® filled applied indexes and hands are complemented by accents of vibrant orange, from the outline of the GMT hand, across key markers on the inner bezel through to the ‘Waterman’ wordmark on the dial.
Available on Black Integrated Rubber, Harbour Blue Integrated Rubber or Stainless Steel Bracelet.
