I don’t like the blue markers. I like the bezel, though.

Even with the markers, I bet it would look good in the flesh.

not bad, don't love the price - I like S501 better as I wouldn't use the GMT...

I agree, blue markers not good.

Give it dark blue outlines hands and dial, BWG9 lume. Then ideal.

Will probably look better in some real wrist shots but I'm not overstruck on it from that pic.

Regardless of the new colorway as much as I do like Bremont the 2 o’clock crown is awkward.

This blue and white combo is doing blue and white wrong.

Looks good minus as everyone mentioned solid blue markers. And I still can't get past the framed date window that breaks up the circle

I don't like anything about it. And I've owned several SM500's that I actually wore for a while. Maybe I'm just a fanboy gone ex fanboy.

Generally I love white-dialed divers, and love the blue-on-white aesthetic (like the Aqua Terra GoodPlanet) but this one misses the mark for me. I think the non-luminescent matte blue markers is where it comes up short for me.

This. My only complaint, really. The OG SM500 had its quirks but I've always like the case design and the technology.

I actually really dig this, and I'm not normally a fan of the S500 style supermarine. This is still far too big for me, but if they did one smaller I'd be down.

Tried it on last night, found it to be surprisingly pretty great. Don't love the kevlar strap – seems like actual water use would degrade it pretty quickly. If they really wanted a conservation-minded tie-in, they shoulda made the strap out of recycled fishing nets or some shit. Either way, pretty nice looking. They should have kept it to two colors (blue and white) if I had anything I'd change about it.

I still don’t love it, but it looks much better than the original photos.

This definitely looks better in Eric‘s pics, but it’s not my favorite offering from Bremont.
