In a watch that was ó surprisingly ó not shown to media at the brandís recent townhouse events, Bremont has added to their Ďtested beyond enduranceí tagline with a new strap option for their Supermarine family.* Details around the strap are scarce, but the press release describes how, in the event of a marine mishap, a simple pull of a ripcord causes the rubber strap to inflate, like a life cuff, improving your buoyancy, and the chances of the watch surviving the mishap unharmed.* No official word on who Bremont worked with in the development of this technology, but given the brandís close working relationship with a range of aviation partners, I have no doubt theyíre well connected in the marine safety sector. However, I suspect that the technology is proprietary to Bremont.* Also unclear is whether this innovative strap will be offered on other timepieces, or for purchase separately. For one, I would love to see this offered across their marine releases.*
