It's like they blew their load with the SM500, then completely shit the bed with this mess.

Dimensions are bang-on
Maybe it's just the photos but the proportions look off to me on the 40mm Supermarines. In particular, the lugs look too long/wide for the case and that gives the whole watch an odd appearance IMO.

It vaguely reminds me of the 40mm H20 Marlin lugs.

We've been focusing on the obvious failures of this watch, but the bracelet end link is also kind of sloppy. There's a solid 1mm of play visible in that pic.

It has "gold tone" written all over it.
But at least it's an "automatic".

Is it that Bremont have one bracelet? Looks good on the old Supermarines, so so on the solo. Awful in these pictures.

I was never a huge fan honestly. But when I saw the older version in person I was impressed with them. This current line up looks like they got rid of everything that did make them stand out.

This.

But what do we know, almost cookie cutter blue diver, they'll probably sell a ton.

One of the nicest and most unique features of the Bremont watches has always been the two-piece cases. Interesting that these new watches seem to share this construction and yet EVERY photo taken of them is straight on and doesn't show this at all.

Mike Pearson, their US sales Director, has some pictures on IG that show more of the cases.

I'm not sure if you guys will find this helpful, but here are all the models via stock photos:

Supermarine

Perhaps the biggest news for Bremont is the release of three all-new Supermarines, each in a smaller 40mm case!

Image

Image

Image

AIRCO

The 40mm AIRCO models are totally new for 2017. They’re broken down into two different lines of watches, the tool-watch Mach 1 and the dressier Mach 2.

Image

Image

ALT1-P

Bremont has added 3 new ALT1-P aviation-inspired chronographs for 2017.
Image

Image

Image

SOLO 32

Bremont released two dressy rose gold version of their smaller SOLO for ladies!
Image

Image

Jaguar MKII White

The MKII White is a white dial version of their Jaguar MKII, but it also has a tachymeter chapter ring and red accents.

Image

V4/RR

The V4/RR is a new model from Bremont inspired by the V4/RR Norton Motorcycle. It’s limited to just 200 pieces!

Image

AC35

The new America’s Cup-inspired AC35 is the latest watch to use Bremont’s proprietary automatic movement. It may be the best looking America’s Cup watch yet!

Image

AC-R-II

The AC-R-II is another addition to their America’s Cup line of watches, although this time in a sporty chronograph.

I agree. Easily the biggest difference between these, and a BB, for example. The latter's slab-like case construction just never worked for me.

Looks like the end links fit in the rendering...

If it was me I wouldn't try and come out with a new watch model every year. I would try to perfect the ones I have. Then when I hit that state I would come out with another model. Not everyone has Rolex money/assets.

They have discontinued the BLUE, SILVER and BLACK w/GREEN S500 models but have kept the Black w/cream accents and the S2000!

New ones will be offered I am sure this coming townhouse.

Man, the blue Supermarine S500 was that I had was my favorite Bremont... would happily pick another in the future. Black with green also looked great. The new ones doesn't do anything for me.

I sure do miss most everything about my orange barrel MBII but mine was an absolute lemon.

Shame.Doubt I'll ever revisit Bremont even though a part of me wants that watch back.

I’m considering an MBII. What made yours a lemon?

Watch would suddenly stop for no apparent reason. Tried repairing it twice, once with (Edit: an AD-account Bremont watchmaker. NOT the Bremont Mother Ship) and still the same. I lost a ton and fire sold it
