📱Authorized Breguet Retailer Zürich - The Breguet Marine traces its origins back to a time when Breguet supplied marine chronometers to the French Royal Navy. Breguet's reputation as a watchmaker and marketer are rightly regarded as legendary by today's watch-collecting community.
The Marine's case measures 40mm in diameter by 11.5mm thick, though the watch wears a a tad larger thanks to a new proprietary lug structure and its protruding crown guard. As you can see, that crown guard has the look of a stylized propeller – an obvious nautical reference – as well as prominent ribbing all the way around the case band.
One of the real standout aspects of the new Marine is its beautiful hand-guilloché dial, a wonderful nod both to Breguet's history and its present-day skills. Breguet operates dozens of antique rose engines in a dedicated department for this antiquarian form of decorative art. But the Marine dial doesn't bear the customary repeating geometric pattern that one typically associates with guilloché. Instead, it's a depiction of a series of waves that appear to have been put down onto the gold dial more or less at random. The shimmering effect of this pattern beautifully recalls late afternoon light streaming across moving water. 🇨🇭 #oldestwatchstore ♢
