Through Bucherer Blue Editions, the traditional family business from Lucerne celebrates the fine art of watchmaking elegantly combining tradition with innovation. In keeping with this fascinating approach comes the most recent addition to the exclusive collection: collaboration with Breguet. The Marine 5517 model makes its debut in a new and exciting creation with a deep blue engine-turned dial, paired with a titanium case – a first for this model range.
The luxurious Marine 5517 sports watch is a wonderfully fitting homage to the ingenious Abraham-Louis Breguet, who, at the decree of King Louis XVIII in 1815, was awarded the title of “Watchmaker to the French Royal Navy” – the most prestigious for a watchmaker of the day. Breguet has reinterpreted the design of its Marine collection, while lending a modern touch to its iconic features, such as the fluted caseband and the famous “moon” tip hands. As the only model in the Marine 5517 series, this special edition features a silvered chapter ring with Roman numerals. The classic Breguet hands in white gold also enjoyed a modern makeover and are coated with a luminescent material. Breguet references its maritime history several times in the design of this sporty yet elegant men’s watch. One of the models most striking features is the deep blue with a wave pattern executed by hand on a rose engine. From this, the eye is then drawn to the consummate crown with wave-shaped embellishments and a distinctive ‘B’ that stands for Breguet.
