Ex-Royal Marine Commando Jason Fox tests new chronograph

Words by Rob Chilton

The Special Forces Sergeant needs reliable kit

In his military career as a Royal Marine Commando and Special Forces Sergeant, Jason Fox saw all types of action on land, sea and air. Strength and stamina are a given for people who make the grade, but Fox believes mentality is the most important tool.

“When it comes to enduring the elements and what Mother Nature can throw at you, surviving is all about the head,” he explains. “You have to dig deep for long periods of time and tell yourself I am going to get through this.”

Fox out in the wild

Also of vital importance to the success of a mission, Fox learned in his 20-year military career, is equipment. Everything from clothing to boots and rucksacks must be as sturdy as the person using them, which is why Fox has given the thumbs up to Bremont’s new sports chronograph, the Supermarine Chrono. Part of Bremont’s Supermarine dive watch collection that launched in 2009, the new 43mm piece has been tested in extreme conditions by elite military squadrons and diving units around the world.

The Supermarine Chrono comes in two dial colours, black and blue

Water resistant to 200m, the GMT watch has a black or blue dial, and a steel or rubber strap. Bronze hands filled with Superluminova, meanwhile, glow brightly. Fox describes the Supermarine Chrono as “tough, durable, reliable and easy to read in hectic conditions.”

Fox believes endurance is all in the head

He adds, “Without the right kit you’re going nowhere. I always make sure I have the right kit to get me through to the end, and you need a trusty timepiece that can endure situations with you.”
