The Supermarine Type 300 by Bremont is a British automatic wristwatch designed to be a daily-wearable, heirloom quality timepiece. It’s named for the legendary Supermarine Spitfire Type 300 prototype aircraft that would form the foundation of the Spitfire we all know and love.
The design evokes the classic professional dive watch, backed up by its 30 ATM / 300 meter water resistance. It’s powered by a modified calibre 11 ½” BE-92AE automatic chronometer fitted with Bremont decorated rotor and 21 jewels, Glucydur balance and Anachron balance spring, with Nivaflex 1 mainspring.
The case is stainless steel using Bremont Trip-Tick® case construction with scratch resistant DLC treated case barrel. It has a laser engraved ceramic uni-directional rotating bezel with Super-LumiNova®, and a domed anti-reflective, scratch resistant sapphire crystal.
