Breguet presents 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 optimize 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. 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.
