Designed in the grand tradition of the exclusive timepieces created by A.-L. Breguet himself for the Royal French Navy, the Marine 5817PR model’s assertive personality displays an arresting mix of refinement and modern spirit. Numbered 1/7, its stunning case features a pink gold frame with bezel and back in platinum.
Its elegant 18K gold dial plate with black rhodium finish is enhanced by a subtle wave pattern, engine - turned by hand in the traditional manner. Facetted pink gold hands show the time on its silvered chapter ring’s pink gold numerals. Chased entirely by an engraver’s steady hand, the self -winding movement’s decor alludes to the achievements of astronomers, navigators and explorers of the past in a fascinating display that includes a sailing ship, naval knots, navigational stars and instruments.
Its dramatic good looks are due in part to the contrast between its dark, oxidized frame and its bright, pink gold oscillating weight designed like a sextant. Adding a trim contemporary note, this salute to the collection’s early history comes with a sporty black rubber strap. Painstakingly finished and elaborately decorated by hand, the design’s unique character embodies a full measure of respect for the centuries -old values and spirit underpinning Breguet’s reputation.
