The Bremont Waterman
Dubai, UAE, June 9, 2018:  Bremont adds a striking and remarkably technical dive watch to its collection, the Limited Edition 'Bremont Waterman'. The mechanical chronometer follows an impressive line of marine predecessors which have built a reputation for durability and precision within the range. Bremont has worked closely with the world renowned free-diver, adventurer, big-wave surfer and ocean environmentalist, Mark Healey, in testing this new timepiece. Crucially, Healey has helped the brand in testing the new Supermarine 500 sapphire crystal case back technology.  
 
Limited to 300 pieces, the beautifully engineered new Bremont Waterman incorporates a GMT hand and features deep-blue applied indexes on the dial. An extension, but modification to the Supermarine range, the Bremont Waterman uses the core Bremont S500 watch architecture as chosen by multiple military units and explorers all over the world. The open sapphire backed 500m water resistant case, helium release valve, anti-shock vibration mount and scratch resistant sapphire uni-directional bezel makes it a watch that can be tested to extremes.
 
Nick English, Co-Founder of Bremont: “We have a reputation for making incredibly tough and functional dive watches which are all tested intensively by the military and explorers alike, the Bremont Waterman is no exception. Not only is this new timepiece truly over-engineered which I love, but it has also been a real joy working with Mark.  There is no one who respects the strength, beauty and fragility of the oceans more than him, he really is a Waterman in every sense of the word.  We are honoured to be working with an adventurer who is so driven by perfection, the ocean environment and who is totally uncompromising when it comes to his equipment. Mark has been testing the Bremont Waterman down to depths of 50m, whilst holding his breath for minutes at a time, and equally whilst riding the likes of Jaws, one of the biggest waves in the world.” 
 
While Healey encountered his share of close calls, from shark attacks to blackouts, he thrives on the elements of danger inherent in his work. “Anytime you step into the ocean, you’re in an environment that’s completely uncontrolled by humans,” he says. “Everyone needs to connect with that sort of wilderness in some way, especially in a time when there’s so much noise and distraction in our daily lives.” To that end, one of Healey’s main ambitions is to use film, photography, and hands-on education to deepen the broader culture’s relationship with the ocean. “I absolutely believe that people will only protect something if they value it, and it’s my life’s mission to inspire others to value the ocean the way I do,” says Healey, who once aspired to be a marine biologist and absorbed himself in malacology (the study of mollusk shells) as a preteen. 
 
Healey continues; “I really identify with Bremont’s commitment to design, function and durability. This piece is just as at home four atmospheres under the sea as it is at a black-tie affair. A well-made timepiece is the only thing that stays with you on your greatest adventures as well as through civilized life. To me it’s a reminder of who you are and where you’ve been; a constant and reliable item in a dynamic life.”
 
With over 5 trillion pieces of plastic currently littering our oceans Bremont and Healey were keen to support a charity close to home for Mark with the release of its latest dive watch. Hailing from Oahu’s North Shore, and with the largest ocean garbage patch being located between Hawaii and California, a percentage of proceeds from all Waterman sales will go towards ‘Sustainable Coastlines Hawaii’.  
 
The Bremont Waterman is designed to celebrate life on and indeed under the water and fundamentally to help contribute towards protecting our oceans legacy. The all-purpose Limited Edition diving watch hopes to add to the increasing awareness of the issues that our oceans are facing all over the globe. Rubbish accumulates in 5 ocean garbage patches, the largest one being the Great Pacific Garbage Patch. If left to circulate, the plastic will impact our ecosystems, health and economies. Solving it requires a combination of addressing the source, and cleaning up what has already accumulated in the ocean. Started in 2010, ‘Sustainable Coastlines Hawaii’ is a grassroots, local non-profit organisation run by a small team of dedicated staff and supported by passionate volunteers.  The charity inspires local communities to care for their coastlines through fun, hands-on beach cleanups as well as coordinating educational programmes, team building corporate clean-ups, ocean plastic recycling, waste diversion services and public awareness campaigns.
