Breguet Marine


Watches of Switzerland

Breguet has consistently displayed an ability to reinvent itself through its countless innovations that have forged its success for more than 240 years. Early in his career, Abraham-Louis Breguet’s talent earned him some of the highest distinctions in his field, including the official title of chronometer maker to the French Royal Navy, the most prestigious to which a horologist could aspire. Throughout his life, he tirelessly conceived and developed impressive timepieces that would leave an indelible imprint on watchmaking history.

In the wake of this unique heritage and driven by the same constant determination to excel, Breguet unveiled last year a horological masterpiece: the Marine Tourbillon Équation Marchante 5887. In addition to its impressive complications, this model symbolises a new generation of Marine timepieces distinguished by a modern and dynamic aesthetic.


Breguet gives a new face to its Marine line through a revamped aesthetic  style,  combining  a sense  of modernity  and dynamism: an original bracelet lug, reworked fluting, as well as a crown surrounded by a wave decor and adorned with a wider “B.”

Symbolising this new generation, the Marine 5517 displays the date at 3 o’clock, housed in an hours chapter with Roman numerals. The latter are coated with a luminescent material, as are the minutes markings and the Breguet hands. The maritime world is evoked by the seconds hand bearing a “B” in a reinterpreted version of the corresponding maritime signal flag.

The maritime spirit of this self-winding model continues on the back with a singular oscillating weight featuring a design inspired by a Baselworld 2018 ship’s rudder. The movement visible through the sapphire crystal caseback is engine-turned and reminiscent of boat decks.


Abraham-Louis Breguet was the brains behind countless inventions in the watchmaking world. In addition to the tourbillon and the parechute shock protection device, to mention only two, we also owe to him the split-seconds chronograph, a complication that will soon be celebrating two centuries of existence. Breguet’s work inspired the entire watchmaking profession in all fields, and notably that of chronographs.

Endowed with the graphic codes of the new-generation Marine models this 42.3mm timepiece sets the tone.  The measurement of the time occurs through a central chronograph hand, distinguished by a subtle maritime detail and completed by two distinct subdials at 3 o’clock for the minutes and at 6 o’clock for the hours. The small seconds is indicated at 9 o’clock. A date indication between 4 and 5 o’clock sets the final touch to this sporty looking creation.


Breguet is enriching its new generation of Marine watches with a creation housing no less than three horological complications. In addition to an alarm, the Marine Alarme Musicale 5547 displays a second time zone as well as the date.

The alarm is a multi-purpose function suited to a number of daily requirements, including wake-up calls and reminders of appointments or events. When the striking mechanism is triggered, a ship’s bell appears through an opening at 12 o’clock, a subtle nod to the maritime world of the collection. The alarm and second time-zone indications appear in two separate subdials at 3 and 9 o’clock. The striking mechanism power reserve is discreetly visible between 9 and 12 o’clock. When the model is fully wound, the arrow points to the all-red indication at 9 o’clock. The Marine Alarme Musicale 5547 also features a date display at 6 o’clock. Its luminescent hands and markings ensure easy reading of the time by day or night.

Elegant and sporty in its shades of gray, the Marine by Breguet is ready to face the seas and ocean spray.
