Bremont Unveils The Waterman Apex II In Collaboration With Globally Renowned Waterman Laird Hamilton

Further to the success of Bremont's Limited Edition 'Waterman' timepieces, Bremont now releases a second edition in collaboration with brand ambassador Laird Hamilton, the American sportsman and pioneer who is globally renowned for conquering some of the planet's mightiest waves. 

Designed to celebrate life above and below the waves, the Waterman Apex II is a high-performance mechanical dive watch tested by arguably the greatest big wave surfer of all time. A celebrated innovator and guiding genius of crossover board sports, including tow-in surfing, stand-up paddle boarding and hydrofoil boarding, Laird is the ultimate waterman who continuously pushes himself beyond limits and expands all possibilities within the sport.

Water resistant to 500m and limited to only 350 pieces, the Waterman Apex II forms part of Bremont's iconic Supermarine Collection. The new model features and automatic helium escape valve and crown protector, as well as boasting an enhanced 50-hour power reserve with GMT and date functionality. The 42mm steel Trip-Tick case incorporates a scratch resistant 24-hour black ceramic uni-directional bezel paired with a matte black dial decorated with a shark fin motif amongst waves and framed by a new Harbour Blue dial flange with reprises its Harbour Blue integrated rubber strap. The Super-LumiNova® filled applied indexes and hands are complemented by accents of vibrant orange, from the outline of the GMT hand, across key markers on the inner bezel through to the 'Waterman' wordmark on the dial.

Technical features and improved legibility were of paramount importance to Bremont's CEO Davide Cerrato as he implements a new set of design codes to the brand's dive watches. Cerrato comments: "The Supermarine is instantly recognisable as a Bremont diver and a brilliant exemplification of a fantastic tool watch that has supported so many interesting and inspiring individuals on their remarkable endeavours. The Supermarine encapsulates so much of Bremont's heritage, and its been incredibly exciting bring some updates to it that create greater consistency and cohesion across the entire range. The Waterman Apex II reflects these design changes and we're really honoured to be continuing of work with Laird who perfectly personifies what being a waterman is."

Laird Hamilton adds, "From growing up in Hawaii, the ocean has always played such an intrinsic part of my life and being a waterman is central to my culture. The ocean is a place of equality, the grand master, the teacher; without is there is no life on earth. I hope to inspired others by sharing my experiences and awaken in them the same reverence for nature and the ocean that I have.

I'm excited to be releasing the Waterman Apex II with Bremont. In Hawaii the sharks are your aumakua which means the spirit of your ancestors live in the sharks, so I particularly love the subtle dial design which has this added significance for me. Mental and physical preparation are fundamental to reaching your apex, which of course includes having reliable equipment. The special nature of the Waterman watch is that it can be worn daily but also has the capability of accompanying me on the greatest of adventures."

A sleek integrated rubber strap in Black or Harbour Blue is available for the Waterman Apex II, complementing the dial colour palette. Alternatively, a stainless-steel bracelet can be worn, designed to suit any occasion or adventure.
