Seafaring Elegance: The Breguet Marine 5517

Abraham-Louis Breguet was the preeminent watchmaker of his time, particularly renowned for the exceptional qualities of his Marine chronometers. The House of Breguet honours the tradition.

It is no coincidence that marine motifs are a recurrent theme in collections crafted by the House of Breguet. This, after all, is a brand created by a horologist who was appointed the Chronometer-maker to the French Royal Navy by King Louis XVIII of France. The connection between the House of Breguet and the marine world is now two centuries old. This bond finds new expression inMarine by Breguet, a collection that incorporates the Marine 5517, the Marine Chronographe 5527 and Marine Alarme Musicale 5547. These watches feature a titanium design with bracelets in the same material and represent a contemporary design approach.

Resistant to salty air and corrosion, titanium is perfectly suited for a marine environment and its lightweight yet robust properties make it ideal for nautical endeavours. Each link of the bracelet of thesewatches has a satin-brushed finish, a demanding exercise in craftsmanshipbecause it requires the end result to feature perfectly homogenous micro- grooving. There are numerous maritime details that adorn this collection. The second hand counterweight, for instance, bears the maritime signal flag whichcorresponds to Breguet’s initial. Theopen tips of the hands and the five-minute markings above the polished Roman numerals are coated with luminescent material which makes it very easy to read the watch at night.

Inside, the Marine 5517 is powered by the 777A caliber, the Marine Chronographe 5527 is equipped with the 582QA caliber while the Marine Alarme Musicale 5547 incorporates the 519F caliber–the perfect amalgam of cutting-edge technology and outstanding aesthetics which has always been a Breguet trademark.
