By TLex Following the success of the Supermarine 500. British watchmaker, Bremont (insert music 'Land of Hope & Glory'!) have launched a new version of the Supermarine. The Supermarine 2000 or S2000, which is due for release at the end of 2012 was made with professional divers in mind.
BREMONT have increased the watch's size from 43mm to 45mm and re-engineered the case to withstand an increase in water-resistance from 500 meters to a depth of 2000m or 6560ft as indicated by the lovely red text on its dial at 6 o'clock. The S2000 is also fitted with a Helium Escape Valve, likely situated on the watch's left lateral side.
Apart from the S2000's welcomed size and water-resistance increase and the inclusion of an HEV, specifications remain the same as the S500. Further features include an anti-shock movement mount and a Faraday cage to shield its chronometer-tested BE-36AE movement from any unwanted electromagnetic fields.
