With the new Marine collection, it symbolises Breguet’s contemporary generation of time pieces and its ability to reinvent itself.
Breguet Marine 5517
In 2017, Breguet gave a new face to its Marine line through a revamped aesthetic style, combining a sense of modernity and dynamism: an original bracelet lug, reworked fluting, as well as a crown surrounded by a wave decor and adorned with a wider “B.”
Symbolising this new generation, the Marine 5517 displays the date at 3 o’clock, housed in an hours chapter with Roman numerals. The latter are coated with a luminescent material, as are the minutes markings and the Breguet hands. The maritime world is evoked by the seconds hand bearing a “B” in a reinterpreted version of the corresponding maritime signal flag.
The Marine 5517 comes in a choice of 3 materials – white gold, rose gold and titanium. The latter material was chosen for its remarkable properties as well as its resistance to both salty air and corrosion. It is also a light and particularly robust material.
The titanium version features a sunburst slate grey dial. The faces of the white gold and rose gold models both bear an engine-tuned “wave” motif that leaves no doubt as to the collection they are joining. The maritime spirit of this self-winding model continues on the back with a singular oscillating weight featuring a design inspired by a ship’s rudder. The movement visible through the sapphire crystal caseback is engine-turned and reminiscent of boat decks.
For each of these timepieces, Breguet offers various strap options. Depending on the model, a brown or blue leather strap is available, while devotees of a more sporty style can choose a rubber version.
Breguet Marine Chronographe 5527
Endowed with the graphic codes of the new-generation Marine models presented last year, this 42.3mm timepiece sets the tone.
The measurement of the time occurs through a central chronograph hand, distinguished by a subtle maritime detail and completed by two distinct subdials at 3 o’clock for the minutes and at 6 o’clock for the hours. The small seconds is indicated at 9 o’clock. A date indication between 4 and 5 o’clock sets the final touch to this sporty-looking creation.
The Breguet Marine Chronographe 5527 is available in several versions, with a broad palette of possibilities. The first combines a white gold case with a blue dial in gold, on which the wave-motif engine-turned pattern echoes the collection’s origins. A variation in rose gold is also available with a silvered gold dial. Breguet also offers its Marine Chronograph 5527 in titanium, a novelty for the collection. The Manufacture also offers the wearer the choice of opting for a leather or rubber strap.
Breguet Marine Alarme Musicale 5547
Breguet enriches its new collection of Marine watches with a creation housing no less than three horological complications. In addition to an alarm, the Marine Alarme Musicale 5547 displays a second time zone as well as the date.
The alarm is a multi-purpose function suited to a number of daily requirements, including wake-up calls and reminders of appointments or events. When the striking mechanism is triggered, a ship’s bell appears through an opening at 12 o’clock, a subtle nod to the maritime world of the collection. The alarm and second time-zone indications appear in two separate subdials at 3 and 9 o’clock. The striking mechanism power reserve is discreetly visible between 9 and 12 o’clock. When the model is fully wound, the arrow points to the all-red indication at 9 o’clock. The Marine Alarme Musicale 5547 also features a date display at 6 o’clock. Its luminescent hands and markings ensure easy reading of the time by day or night.
The Breguet Marine Alarme Musicale 5547 is available in several versions. The model with a white gold case is fitted with a blue dial, while the rose gold model has a silvered dial. The two faces bear a fine wave-like engine-turned pattern. 2018 also sees this line welcome a new material: titanium. This light and particularly sturdy metal also appeals for its resistance to salty air and corrosion. The titanium version features a slate grey dial. Breguet complements this model with a choice of a leather or rubber strap.
