Bremont Project Possible
2019 saw one man achieve the impossible. It is unlikely in this lifetime that anyone will complete something of the magnitude that Bremont Ambassador Nirmal ‘Nims’ Purja MBE accomplished in just 6 months and 6 days. Nims firmly took his place in mountaineering history when he completed Bremont Project Possible, a challenge to summit Earth’s 14 tallest mountains, all higher than 8,000m, in less than 7 months. Smashing the previous record of nearly 8 years and breaking a further 6 world records in the process, it’s arguably a record unlikely to be broken. To celebrate this remarkable feat and the ultimate mountaineering goal, Bremont has released the Limited Edition Bremont Project Possible. Limited to only 300 pieces, the GMT diver is based on Bremont’s celebrated Supermarine 500. Built from titanium and bronze with a khaki vintage side stitch and sapphire crystal glass, the timepiece is a stunning model. It also boasts a 43mm case, dark blue dial with bronze bezel and ceramic blue insert, teamed with Gold plated hands with Super-LumiNova® luminous coating. It features automatic movement, and turning the watch over reveals an open case back through which the skeletonised decorated rotor can be seen which details the heights of each of the 14 mountains, and in the order that Nims summitted them. Amongst this, the watch also has a 42 hour power reserve and is water resistant to an impressive 500m, making it the ideal watch for the adventurous soul.
