Marine by Breguet Sporty Elegance
The Marine collection symbolises the spirit of adventure and conquest. It is inspired by the timepieces of yesteryear that were used as scientific instruments, particularly in maritime navigation. In 2021, Breguet adds to this line new variations in rose gold with a slate-gray dial, and in titanium with a blue dial.
In order to offer a wide range of watches to choose from, the House of Breguet is introducing new variations of its Marine 5517, 5527, and 5547 models this year. The first one incorporates a pristine look with a three-hand display and a date indication. The 5527 model furthermore features a flyback chronograph function, with a large central hand indicating the measured time. Three counters located between 3 and 9 o’clock display the timed minutes, the hours, and the small seconds. Reference 5547 includes an alarm function, and displays a second time zone. All three timepieces display the date in a separate window.
The new generation of the Marine line, launched in 2017, embodies sporting elegance, reinterpreting the aesthetic elements of Breguet in a contemporary style. The three models presented feature an hours chapter with Roman numerals and luminescent dots, the famous moon-tipped Breguet hands in luminescent faceted gold, and a central hand with subtle marine detail. Breguet proposes several types of straps and bracelets for these creations: leather, rubber, and metal.
Titanium Performance and Sleek Readability
In presenting the first versions of the 5517, 5527, and 5547 models in 2018, Breguet also introduced a new material to the collection: titanium. Its remarkable properties make this material the ideal choice for the maritime-themed line. In addition to its resistance to salty air and corrosion – a major advantage in a marine environment – it is also light and robust. Since 2019, the House of Breguet has also offered a titanium bracelet that emphasizes the contemporary aspect. Breguet incorporates in its titanium Marine models a dial with a sunburst finish created by hand. Very fine lines extend from the frame containing the brand name to the edges of the dial. As a tribute to the spirit of the collection, these new timepieces are finished in blue tones, reminiscent of the sea.
