The new wave in Marine watchesBreguet MARINE 5817
The latest MARINE 5817 automatic introduces a new movement, a bigger case, a rubber strap and a redesigned dial to Breguet’s popular sports model. The Marine watches trace their ancestry to the chronometers A. -L. Breguet made for the French royal navy from 1815. Designed for reliability, they achieve their elegance through the modern application of Breguet’s traditional aesthetic values.
The tough steel case has protected crown and increased water-resistance. It holds a gold dial that is silvered or blued, and engine - turned in the centre with a fine wave pattern. Facetted, open -tipped Breguet hands with luminous coating point to a chapter -ring of Roman numerals punctuated with luminous dots. Concern for clarity is also apparent in the centre-seconds and the large date with separate numbers at 6 o’clock. The sapphire-crystal display-back reveals the superb finish of the automatic movement with its chamfered edges, blued-steel screws and its winding-rotor decorate d in the trademark wave pattern of the Marine models.
Both the steel bracelet and the rubber strap highlight the uncompromising character of this watch on your wrist — bred from ancient traditions and executed with modern flair.
