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 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.
