A nice GMT diving watch to commemorate the mountaineering world record.
Bremont Ambassador Nirmal ‘Nims’ Purja rewrote the mountaineering history completing a challenge to summit Earth’s 14 tallest mountains in 6 months and 6 days and scoring another 6 world records in the process. To celebrate this remarkable feat, Bremont is releasing a special watch – the Project Possible Limited Edition. Technically speaking, it’s a variation of the brand’s S500 model, where ’S’ stands for ‘Supermarine’, but a pretty attractive variation indeed. The watch comes in a 43mm aviation-grade titanium case paired by an offset crown at 2 and a bronze uni-directional rotating bezel with a blue ceramic insert. The dark blue dial is super clean and legible with lume-covered broad bronze hands and large hour markers. The date window at 3 is also of matching color, while the central GMT hand is showing the second timezone in a 24-hour format.
Beating at 4Hz and providing a 42-hour power reserve, the BE-93-2AV automatic movement is visible through the sapphire caseback. The writings on the winding rotor list the heights of the 14 mountains in the order that Nims summitted them. The watch is complemented by a khaki leather strap, but still bears the specs of a proper diver with 500-meter water resistance rating. Bremont Project Possible is a limited edition of 300 pieces. The price is $6695.
