Breguet’s call to explore the great unknown with the Marine collection

Back in the late eighteenth century Abraham-Louis Breguet, a 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 optimise chronometry and its applications. Just as crucial, an uncluttered aesthetic ensures the pieces are easy to read as well.

The Marine collection is firmly rooted in the fundamentals of Breguet’s heritage.

The Marine Équation Marchante 5887 harks back to the day when navigators located their position by comparing the position of the stars with the time in their port of origin. A dedicated, easy-to-read hand displays the solar time. In a subtle feat of fine engraving, a historical sailing ship features across the components making up the back of this movement. Visible on the dial, the equation of time cam is mounted on a sapphire disk atop an extra-thin tourbillon.

The Marine 5517 features a date aperture. The Marine Chronographe 5527, on the other hand, measures short time intervals. And the Alarme Musicale 5547 features an alarm complication and displays the date and time for a second-time zone.

Each watch is available in three different case styles: titanium, rose gold and white gold.
