Breguet Announces New Versions of its Marine Timepieces

Marine by Breguet ticks to the rhythm of the ocean swell and the light currents of the trade winds: a combination of a timeless aesthetic and technical performance in Breguet’s time-honored tradition. Now Breguet offers the Marine 5517, the Chronographe 5527, and the Alarme Musicale 5547 in rose or white gold with matching gold bracelets.

The Marine collection is firmly rooted in the fundamentals of Breguet’s heritage. Back in the late eighteenth century, Abraham-Louis Breguet, the father of modern clock and watchmaking, determined the essentials in the art of fashioning timepieces: reliability and legibility. His many technical innovations, among them the tourbillon, were designed to optimise chronometry and its applications. Just as crucially, an uncluttered aesthetic ensures the pieces are also easy to read.

In 1815, King Louis XVIII of France recognized the exceptional qualities of Breguet’s work, appointing him Chronometer-maker to the French royal navy. From that point on, the success of the royal expeditions was in part dependent on the reliability of his naval clocks – both a great honor and a heavy responsibility. In 1840, for example, a Breguet instrument was the first timepiece to reach the Antarctic, with the Jules Dumont d’Urville expedition. The links between the House of Breguet and the maritime world are as tangible as they have always been.

Perfectly placed on its clean, simple three-hand display, the Marine 5517 features a date window.

The Marine Chronographe 5527, on the other hand, measures short time intervals.

Finally, the Marine Alarme Musicale 5547 features an alarm complication, as well as displaying the date and time for a second time zone.

Each watch is available in three materials: titanium, rose gold, and white gold.

The titanium model features an elegantly understated sunburst slate-gray dial in gold. The rose gold and white gold cases feature a gold dial engine-turned by hand with an original wave design.

Gold Bracelets

For 2020, Breguet is offering the Marine collection with matching gold straps for a sportier look – rose gold for versions with a silver dial and white gold for those with a blue dial. The first link, which is attached directly – integrated – to the case, continues the smooth lines of the Marine to the wrist, offering superior comfort for the wearer. Echoing the contrasting gold on the case, the links alternate between polished and glossy facets – a finishing touch of the highest precision, requiring the greatest delicacy.

The sculpted lugs accentuate the roundness of the case on the Marine models. The fluted case flanks evoke Breguet creations of times gone by. The artisan watchmaker’s skill heightens the dial’s legibility, whilst the bright polished finish of the Breguet moon-tipped hands makes reading the time all but effortless. For nighttime use, the tip of each hand features a luminescent material, as do the five-minute markers above the Roman numerals. For its Marine collection, Breguet has created an engine-turning pattern inspired by the crests of the waves, executed by hand on the versions in gold.

Countless details from the Marine 5517, Marine Chronographe 5527, and Marine Alarme Musicale 5547 pay homage to the nautical world.

On the caliber bridges, the côtes de Genève pattern engine-turned by hand calls to mind a ship’s deck boards. The tip of the second hand forms a “B,” which stands for the “Bravo” of maritime parlance, or for Breguet. A ship’s wheel design features on the rotor.
