A DIVE WATCH
WITH A CAUSE
43mm TRIP-TICK® CASE
Limited to 250 pieces
Designed to celebrate life on and under the water, the Waterman Apex is a high-performance mechanical dive watch forming part of Bremont’s iconic Supermarine range. Limited to just 250 pieces, the Waterman Apex is not just built to be entirely fit for purpose, but sales of the watch will also be supporting oceanic research for the pioneering non-profit organisation Bimini Shark Lab.
ABOUT BIMINI SHARK LAB
Continuing Bremont’s passion for ocean conservation, the new Limited Edition celebrates the work of Bimini with Bremont donating a percentage of all Waterman Apex watch sales to support and continue their work.
The Bimini Biological Field Station Foundation, ‘Bimini Shark Lab’, is a non-profit organisation in the Bahamas focused on advancing humankind’s knowledge of the biology of marine animals, particularly sharks and rays.
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.
Tested by legendary big wave surfer and all round waterman Laird Hamilton, the Waterman Apex is a highly technical dive watch incorporating an automatic helium escape valve and crown protector, as well as boasting a 42-hour power reserve with GMT and date functionality.
The 43mm steel Trip-Tick® case incorporates a scratch resistant sapphire uni-directional bezel paired with a matt black dial subtly decorated with a shark fin motif amongst waves, nodding to the partnership with Bimini Shark Lab, the organisation that Bremont will be donating a percentage of sales towards in order to help continue their vital research.
Turning the watch over reveals its open sapphire case back through which the custom rotor can be seen, designed to reprise the dial with the shark fin motif in blue. Despite having an open case back, the Waterman Apex is water resistant to 500m with the movement being protected by Bremont’s patented anti-shock vibration mount technology. True to form, this is a watch that can be tested to extremes.

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
