The Bremont S300 Kaimu was designed with the S300 Vigo, two contrasting and stylish monochrome dive watches which bring a new aesthetic to the Supermarine Collection.
Each timepiece draws inspiration from two dramatically contrasting coastlines that reflect each colour palette. The S300 Kaimu links to Kaimu beach in Hawaii, a world-renowned dramatic, volcanic black sand beach in the Puna district. Based on the Big Island, Kaimu is a very young black sand beach with a rich history as it was devastated by an eruption from the nearby Kilauea volcano in 1990. Kaimu is an incredible example of endurance as the beach and local habitat have replenished, supported by locals and visitors planting sprouted coconuts in order to revitalise the local habitat and replaced the lost vegetation, restoring the area to its former beauty.
It is not completely unexpected to find that the world sets its time by Greenwich and not by Geneva. Whilst Geneva and Switzerland may be producing the vast majority of luxury wristwatches today, this certainly wasn’t always the case. In 1800 half of the world’s watches, around 200,000 pieces a year, were produced on British shores by British watchmakers, which is an incredible statistic. Another wonderful statistic is that probably over 60-70% of the innovation in a modern day mechanical watch has come from Britain, including every major escapement design. Bremont’s mission has always been to play a part in bringing back watchmaking to British shores.
