    Bremont Durability

    This is a fairly pedestrian story, but I thought I would pass it along. I purchased my Bremont Supermarine last September. Within the first 2-3 days of owning, I managed to let it slip out of my hand, about chest high, and it fell to the hard ceramic tile floor of my bathroom. As my watch landed face-first with a solid smack, a sick feeling hit me in the pit of my stomach. I reached down to pick it up knowing that the sapphire crystal/bezel would be cracked, the case would have a deep scratch and/or the movement would be damaged.

    When I picked up the watch and examined it closely, I couldn't believe my eyes. Everything was perfect, from the case, to the bezel and crystal. As I kept an eye on the functions, everything worked perfectly to the point that I was able to give a tremendous accuracy report in February of this year.

    I know this was not some major catastrophic accident that makes one astounded the watch survived, but I have had other watches with highly-regarded durability ratings not do as well under ordinary mishaps. Since that accident, I have taken my Bremont free-diving, ocean kayaking and other rugged outdoor endeavors. It's as tough as it is beautiful and distinctive.

    The 2000 vickers hardness rating of the case should keep it scratch free in almost all circumstances.

    How about the bracelet? Has that scratched ?

    NatoSteve, the case has held up very well. I don't see any scratches. If they are there, they are very fine. The Bracelet clasp is another story. The clasp has a lot of desk-diving scratches. I have to assume that the bracelet does not get the same hardening treatment as the case. That's a shame.

    I have the Supermarine S500/bk on the steel bracelet but I also purchased the rubber strap and I switch them from time to time. It is an outstanding watch! I did a review here comparing the Bremont to the Ball Hydrocarbon about a year ago.
