    Going to really test their warranty with this one

    I bought a Bremont Supermarine second hand, which was originally purchased from an AD 5 months ago, so it still has ~2.5 years of warranty left, and we are about to see how good they really are.

    Ignoring the dust on the dial/underside of the crystal, the unbelievably blotchy and weak white lume on the hour markers (I guess they changed from blue to white because all the examples I've seen are blue lume), and the misaligned day wheel, I think I may have found the most glaring lack of quality control issue in any watch I've seen.

    White lume paint splattered across the sides of the hands. Being that the original AD is 2 hours away, I feel I'd rather deal with Bremont directly on this one. Is there someone I should contact specifically to get these issues sorted or just reach out to the NYC boutique?

    I'm slightly worried you may have found a fake. There have been a rush of decent Chinese knock of S500s on the market. I've seen many Bremont, and never seen issues like this. If this is a genuine watch, it very much needs to be fixed!

    Check out these posts related to the fakes:

    I'm not so sure about that. I have the warranty card with Exquisite Timepieces stamp, unless they are faking those as well. I also bought it from a forum member who has gotten good feedback, it even has the bracelet tool.

    I very much hope it's not! Some that have popped up were from eBay and blue, came with the warranty card and full kit. Impressive fakes really!
    Regardless, the next step would be to email [email protected]. They'll get you sorted out. You can also call the NYC Boutique and they can arrange to collect the watch and get it fixed up. Let them fix these bugaboos and get it perfect for you.

    Any insight on the blotchy weak green/white dial lume? Every picture I can find online of the blue model has blue lume on the dial, bezel and hands,. Where as this one has blue only on the hands and bezel.

    I own this very watch. It's not green at all for me. Bluish white all over and strong.

    The other sides of the hands have paint all over them as well.

    Here is a lume shot. Hands and bezel super strong and blue. Dial very blotchy and green.



    Another shot 30 seconds later. Dial fades extremely quick.
