Ever since I reviewed it, I’ve been a huge fan of the Bremont Supermarine S302. Recently, the brand unveiled the updated S302, introducing fresh color variations and a shift in the GMT functionality format. This release continues Bremont’s line of travel-friendly watches, a smaller take on their classic Supermarine collection. We’re getting three different versions, one of which is a limited edition sporting a sleek grey color scheme. The case remains a manageable 40mm in width, 13mm in thickness, and 49mm lug to lug.
The notable change here lies in how this new S302 handles multiple time zones. Unlike the earlier model, which featured a dive-GMT configuration, the new versions all come with unidirectional 24-hour bezels and a 60-minute scale on the rehaut. As with the previous S302, these new models use a modified ETA 2893 movement with an independently adjustable 24-hour hand for GMT functionality. In my personal day-to-day, I’d probably just turn to the bezel by itself to track a second time zone. If you don’t care about tracking elapsed time with a bezel, this version might be even better for you than the last.
The range includes a blue dial version with a blue/green bezel, the S302 Jet in a DLC black case with a matte black dial (that one is making me feel very, very hot 🥵), and the limited edition S302 Supermarine Ocean, a grey-on-grey model produced in collaboration with marine biologist and freediver Ocean Ramsey. Proceeds from the Ocean LE will support the “Save The Turtles International” charity.

That combo on the rubber strap seems so perfect for daily wear.
