I have owned a 'stupid' number of watches.... vintage watches who have a story..... a design lineage that you can trace back... showing their Form follows function development...... and this is what I see in the S2000 ....


To begin with the watch arrives in a really nice leach case..... wrapped around a suede tube that contains any accessories for the watch.....

its a classy bit of packaging...... and then comes the watch......





Now I do not go overboard on divers but I do go overboard on great design...... the reworked dial.... reminiscent of bakelite finish... like a radiogram of old.... or a aircraft cowling...... is really begining to look a classic.......





The wide outside edge of mat black that gives good clearance from the detail of the inner dial leaving the easy to read stark difference between the silver ringed cup markers filled with white bright lume..... allows the internal bezel ring to be read equally clearly with the noted stamp 'London' at 6 pm and the 'twin triggers' at 12pm.....





The finish on the case is no nonsense.... tough looking...with swathes of brushed hardened steel saying... yes bash me I dare you ! ......





Combined with the Bremont trademark 'PVD Barrel' which contains the auto 'helium escape' valve the feeling of solid engineering is so consistent...





The crown is bigger... which is a plus.... with its cool detail of the propeller engraving... and the crown guard arm adds yet another interesting bit of detail......... and I always love hex bolts...






The case back engraving has been simplified from the SM500 and is shown side on in relief..... and is deeper and more polished which is another good idea.... less is more...







Head on with those great hands inspired by bygone aviation clock hands... add the little extra red on the dial and the warning triangle at 12 and I think it is a winner for men who want a stylish practical dive watch that evokes design cues from the 20th century.......
