Breguet - Marine, all titanium design

Breguet Marine, all titanium design

The titanium models Marine 5517, Marine Chronograph 5527 and Marine Alarm Music 5547 are now available with bracelets of the same material.

Titanium provides resistance to salty air and corrosion, which is of particular interest to anyone in a marine environment, while ensuring that the watch is both light in weight and robust. The artisans have applied their know-how to designing the titanium bracelet with a satin-brushed finish for each of its links. Such a watchmaking finish demands of the artisans an absolute mastery of their craft so as to obtain perfectly homogeneous micro-grooving. Its case is also satin-brushed, while the bezel has been polished, which creates different light effects and subtle contrasts.

Many details of the collection have been inspired by the seafaring world, recalling the title of Chronometer-maker to the French Royal Navy bestowed upon Abraham-Louis Breguet in 1815. The second hand counterweight bears the maritime signal flag corresponding to Breguet’s initial. The polished and faceted open-tipped Breguet hands as well as the white counter numerals and Breguet signature contrast with the sunburst slate-gray dial. For use at night, the open tips of the hands and the five-minute markings above the polished Roman numerals are coated with a luminescent material.

In its continuous quest for reliability, Breguet uses self-winding manufacture calibers precision-tested in six different positions. The Marine 5517 with date display beats to the rhythm of the 777A caliber, the Marine Chronographe 5527 comes with a 582QA caliber, while the Marine Alarme Musicale 5547 incorporates the 519F caliber, and includes an alarm function, a display for a second time zone, and the date.

The sapphire-crystal caseback shows the finishes of the movement, which are common to all calibers in the Marine collection. On the caliber bars, the côtes de Genève enhanced by guilloche design call to mind a ship’s deck boards. The design of a rudder is found on the gold rotor. Each caliber is numbered individually and signed Breguet. Finally, the words Horloger de la Marine (Chronometer-maker to the Navy) are engraved on the caseback.
