Exactly on course: Breguet La Marine
A watch from the La Marine collection with a sporty touch radiates maritime charm. It fascinates with its extraordinary dial layout and thematic design. Under sapphire crystal, elaborate handwork and mechanical finesse can be admired. The signed and numbered Marines vary - depending on model and variant - in features, function and material. Yellow, white and rose gold, resistant titanium or platinum are used for the round cases with screw-down crown and for the dial. Characteristic of a Breguet is the unique guilloché dial and filigree hands. The slender fine hands in blued steel feature ring points or unusual anchor, flag and sun symbols. A high-quality luxury watch requires an adequate marine bracelet made of solid gold, alligator leather or rubber. The watches are certified seaworthy for water depths between 30 and 100 meters.
Masterpieces of optical-technical perfection
During his time as an honorary watchmaker for the Royal Navy, company founder Abraham-Louis Breguet created a marine chronometer for navigation and timekeeping. The current La Marine line links tradition with experience and appeals to the modern maritime fan community. The Royale, Alarme Musicale and Extravagant Chronograph models for men and women are examples of this. Alarme Musicale captivates with three additional modules: Date, second time zone and acoustic wake-up and appointment reminder with nautical ship bell symbol.
Ahoy Breguet La Marine
A sapphire crystal back reveals the mechanical movement with automatic winding. The large number of built-in movement components is between 150-350 pieces and reflects the manufacturing effort. Inside, 26 to 35 jewels and a flywheel mass of 18-22 carats work. The power reserve stages reach 45 to 55 hours. The frequency of the balance is between 3 and 4. In the hour circle of the dial there are striking Roman numerals. The femine version is partly decorated with Arabic numerals in elegant spelling, natural mother-of-pearl dial, diamonds and coloured 15-minute sector. The engraving technique used for the dial conjures up relief-like decors from fine lines. Sunburst or wavy patterns are given an extra sheen by the incidence of light.
