Bremont - Supermarine Terra Nova Limited Edition

| No comment
The Bremont Supermarine Terra Nova was on the wrist of the British explorer Ben Saunders when, at the beginning of this year, he completed together with his mate Tarka L’Herpiniere the longest journey on foot in the Artarctica: 1,795 miles on a return journey from Scott’s Terra Nova Hut on the north shore of Ross Island to the South Pole.
The two explorers, walking an average of 17 miles daily, wore their Supermarine Terra Nova chronometers on the outside of their jackets. Using the chronometer to measure longitude, the watch could be used to point to the South Pole using the GMT watch hand and the sun.
The result of the collaboration of the explorer with the British watch company, the Terra Nova was manufactured from aircraft-grade titanium to reduce weight and increase strength. Its mechanical automatic movement incorporates a special vibration mount with the ability to protect against extreme shocks and also serve as a thermal insulator. The specially oiled movement was tested to -40°C to ensure it could withstand such extreme temperatures, far too cold for any type of battery operated watch.
The case of the Supermarine Terra Nova has a diameter of 43 mm and it is water resistant to 50 ATM or 500 metres. It features a bi-directional compass bezel with Super-LumiNova, an inner soft iron Faraday cage to protect the movement from magnetic fields, and an automatic helium escape valve.
The black metal dial is characterised by Super-LumiNova coated hands and markers with contrasting details like the red-tipped seconds hands and the yellow GMT hand.
The COSC-certified chronometer movement runs at 28,800 vibrations per hour and offers 42 hours of power reserve.

The Bremont Supermarine Terra Nova, available with an integrated rubber strap or with a titanium bracelet, is a limited edition of 300 pieces with a retail price starting at US$ 5,995.
