Bremont Supermarine Terranova

Limited Edition of 300 Pieces 
In late 2013, the renowned polar explorer, Ben Saunders and his team mate Tarka L’Herpiniere walked from Scott’s hut on the north shore of Ross Island in Antarctica to the South Pole. Once there, they turned around and walked the 900 miles back – pulling their own supplies by sled the whole way. Their record-breaking 1,795 mile trek was the first to complete Scott’s route to the South Pole. On the outside of their jackets the two polar explorers wore their new Terra Nova chronometers. Far too cold for any type of battery operated device, the light titanium Supermarine with its GMT functionality and specially oiled mechanical movement became an indispensable tool.
The case, in satin and polished titanium, measures 43mm. It has a bi-directional rotating bezel with SuperLumiova. It features an inner soft iron anti-magnetic Faraday cage and protective patented anti-shock movement mount. Automatic helium escape valve and crown protector. It has an AR-coated sapphire crystal and a decorated caseback. It is water resistant to 500 meters.

Movement is the Swiss automatic Bremont caliber BE-93-2AE with 21 jewels, 28,800 vph and a power reserve of 42 hours. It is COSC-certified as a chronometer and features a Glucydur balance, an Anachron balance spring, a Nivaflex 1 mainspring, and a moulded and skeletonised decorated rotor. It has a GMT complication.

The black dial has SuperLuminova coated hands and numerals and GMT hand.

It comes on a 22mm integrated rubber strap with titanium pin buckle. It is also available with a titanium bracelet.
