New Release: Breguet unveils its new Marine collection

by Deployant News Team on March 28, 2018

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.
