    New Bremont model- Supermarine 2000

    Any info on this model? Price? Availability? I don't think it has the faraday cage due to the display back.

    One major improvement over the 500 is no day/date window frame. Maybe the next model--3000--will deep six the needless railroad track. Who knows...the next model after that may update the needle tipped hands to a more modern configuration

    Nice job and keep them coming,

    I think this addresses the most common gripe. No lume on the second hand of a diver. Wonder if other colors will be available? So it has a second case back to cover the display back, what does that look like?

    I like the hands since they are unique! The only thing that comes close is my Arnold & Son White Ensign.

    I think I may purchase this item. I have been looking at getting a supermarine to match my MBII. I just got back from Hawaii and used my MBII while snorkling, volcano walking, and while body surfing in 10 foot high surf (pretty dangerous) and the MBII did fine. I do think though that I need a more waterproof watch. The supermarine 2000 would be perfect. It is not even listed yet on the 2012 pricelist so I'm sure it is several months or more from availability. Perhaps Sam or Rob can use their connections to find out more and get some wristshots.

    Looks fantastic. It's nice to see a display back on the Supermarine!

    I like it! Wish it had stayed 43mm, but I don't mind 45mm. It would be great if other color combinations are offered; really liking this one.

    I like the upgraded lumed second hand and display caseback. However, I'm not fond of the red accents and 45mm size. The SM500 already wore large and felt somewhat heavy. While the hour and minute hands are elegant, the polished surfaces make the tip of the hands difficult to see at certain angles in low light. I would like to see them use a matte finish on the hands.

    Dude. Just... dude.

    This really takes some of the sting out of not getting a decent GMT 4 hand watch for 2012. Would have preferred 43mm, but either way this looks cracking! Well done, boys. I ASSume it still has the shock protection..?
