The Bremont S300

Having proven incredibly popular since launch, introducing the S300 White into the Supermarine range is the perfect counterpart to the other darker dialled variants within the line. The contrasting blue ceramic bezel sets off the lighter dial beautifully and matches the blue indexes and two tone Nato strap. In keeping with the existing models, the S300 White features a unidirectional bezel, Super-LumiNova® hands and the 40mm steel case is decorated with the silhouette of the original Supermarine aircraft on the back.
