    Brermont Royal Marines 350 LE

    I don't know how long I will be a newbie for but if its like my sailing club I'm still considered to be a new member after 3 years.

    Thought I'd better start uploading some pictures starting with my Bremont. Purchased by pre order in 2013 for the 350th Anniversary of the Royal Marines in 2014.
    Only available to serving and ex serving members with proof of service. Its a Bremont Supermarine 500 with a few additions to the dial and tested to 507m which is 1664ft (birth year of the RM 1664) And a case back engraved with service number.

    It very subtly done and a nice watch.

    I really like bremont and have owned a few over the years. Never had a supermarine but have tried one on and its a great watch, yours looks even better with extra red text. Nice !

    I like this watch and some others but I find the size too large over all on most.

    Does your former profession relate to your TZ name John?
    Very nice that, I like the subtle splash of colour on the dial and service number on the back is a nice touch.
    I had the normal S500 version 1 like yours but foolishly sold it to buy something else which I ended up flipping and needless to say still regret letting it go. At least it went to someone on TZ so I have a chance of getting it back some day. Great watches, one of Bremonts best. I like the Airborne version to. Good choice.

    Looks possibly like summer/autumn 85 to me.

    No actually, on an episode of 'Dr Who' there were two Dave's, to distinguish the two they were nicknamed Proper Dave and Other Dave. On another forum I'm on there is a well known John so I decided to be the Other John and its kind of stuck.

    They are great watches, made from some quite technical materials. I have the bracelet but have only ever worn it on rubber.

    Maybe I should cross out the service number for security purposes
