Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Concept GMT Tourbillon Review Breguet has always been known for making complex, classic watches. The brand’s tendency towards a traditional aesthetic, however, has sometimes deterred younger buyers. That trend seems to be changing. The latest example comes in the form of the new models introduced into the Marine collection at Baselworld this year. We’ve already covered the Breguet Marine 5517 in detail here. Now, we’re turning our attention to the Marine Alarme Musicale 5547, a contemporary-looking watch with some very traditional complications.The new Marine models take their design inspiration from the Marine Équation Marchante 5887.
The layout of the dial itself is relatively simple and belies the complexity of the movement beneath, which incorporates three complications. Time is displayed centrally by Breguet-style hands, complete with central seconds hand counterweighted by a maritime flag representing the letter ‘B’. The date is shown via an aperture at 6 o’clock. Two sub-dials occupy the centre section of the dial. The smaller one at 9 o’clock displays a second time zone, while the larger one at 3 o’clock is used to set the time for the mechanical alarm.
Introduced at Baselworld 2017, this uber-complicated watch, equipped with a perpetual calendar, an equation of time and a tourbillon, marked the revamp of the collection. Modern fonts, the bold use of colour and a contemporary-shaped case all work together to catapult this model into the 21st-century. All whilst preserving the traditional techniques, such as engine-turned dials, that Breguet is known and loved for.The Marine Alarme Musicale 5547 builds on this aesthetic but in an even more contemporary fashion. The 40mm x 13.05mm satin-brushed round case with a fluted caseband is paired with squared lugs (also satin-brushed) and features a polished bezel, crown and protectors. There are three different metals available; white gold, rose gold and titanium. The gold dials of the two precious metal cases are blue and silver respectively and feature the wavy engine-turned pattern synonymous with the Marine collection. The titanium version, meanwhile, features a gold dial finished in slate grey and is arguably the most modern - and minimalist - looking. 2019 Hublot Big Bang Meca-10 Nicky Jam watch price
Cheap Richard Mille RM 67-01 Extra Thin Automatic price Creating a two-hand ultra-thin watch is, believe it or not, one of the most complex exercises for a watch designer. Because of the extreme simplicity of such pieces, it is easy to end up with the most boring watch possible - and how do you differentiate yourself when you simply have nothing to express…? This is where the Breguet Classique Extra-Plate 5157 (and its 2018 pink gold version) is brilliant. It manages to be extremely pure, clean and simple and at the same time remains a quintessentially Breguet product.With ultra-thin, time-only watches, what sounds initially like an advantage is actually a disadvantage. Don’t think for a second that creating a pleasant ultra-thin, time-only watch with its own personality is easy. In fact, it can be much more complex than a watch with complications - a topic we discussed here with another brand - as there is a very low margin to express the DNA of the brand: a small case, two hands and a dial… That’s all you have. And since this species of watch needs to be elegant, timeless and discreet, the situation gets even trickier.
With the Breguet Classique Extra-Plate 5157, we might have found a solid case study to prove the opposite. This watch doesn’t have to pack complications and design tricks to be immediately recognisable as being part of the Breguet family. Consistency in the design and a well-dosed use of tradition isn’t just a statement of conservatism. In the case of this Ref. 5157, it becomes a way to express the brand’s DNA in a watch that is absolutely simple, but easily identifiable.
The fluted case - fine grooves enhanced with double beading found on the caseband. This fluting was used already by the founder, A.L. Breguet, on some of his earliest creations and has since become a cornerstone of the brand’s design. The fluted pattern is cold-rolled into the case band then finished by hand on a mechanical workpiece-holder. HYT SKULL 48.8 watches replica
The restrained and discreet watches of the Classique Collection are unequivocal, unmistakable members of the Breguet family. Without even thinking about it, they are immediately recognisable as a Breguet. This is all due to what the Maison names the “unmistakable signs” or the quintessential design codes used by the brand for over two centuries. In order to understand exactly what this means in modern-day creations, we’ve visited the Breguet Museum in Paris, talked with Emmanuel Breguet and bring you the brand’s latest creation - the Breguet Classique Tourbillon 5367 - next to two of the most important and earliest creations of Abraham-Louis Breguet.
It’s only once you have the chance (really, having such a piece of history in my hand was a chance) to put these two watches side by side that you properly understand Breguet’s consistency. Already in 1780, Breguet had developed a brand image, a DNA, a style that will define the manufacture for the centuries to come. No. 15 is a time capsule and a case study on its own. First, it is technically impressive and is one of the very first automatic watches created by A.L. Breguet, and thus, it is one of the very first automatic watches ever manufactured (period). Yet, what is even more interesting here is the design.
This “Breguet style” is easily defined by several design codes that the brand calls “unmistakable signs”. Most of them are well-known and have been used by many other brands in recent years: the engine-turned (guilloché) dials, the fluted case bands, the blued hands with eccentric “moon” tip, the soldered lugs, the secret signature and, of course, the Breguet numerals. Yet, we wanted to have a better feel, in the metal, of how this translates into modern-day creations. For this reason, we took the brand’s latest watch, the superb Classique Tourbillon 5367, and we brought it face to face with two of the earliest watches made by Abraham-Louis Breguet, the founder of the brand. One will be used as a case study in design - the Breguet Perpetuelle No 15 - and the second one will serve as a technical case study - the Breguet Tourbillon No 1176.

Measuring 40mm in diameter, the proportions of the case doff their hat to modernity, sidestepping the smaller case sizes found on Breguet models of yesteryear.
The slender lugs are straight and project a significant distance from the case. The case-band subscribes to the Breguet DNA courtesy of the fluted design detail running north to south.The Calibre 502.3SD has an unusual appearance courtesy of its oscillating mass being biased to one side. This asymmetrical design sees the rotor floating above much of the movement, including the open-worked spring barrel and gear train. Neighbouring the rotor is a large crescent shaped bridge which occupies the remaining area of the case-back.I especially appreciate sight of the freely disclosed crown wheel and the open-worked spring barrel with the mainspring readily shown.
Breguet has not merely looked to the past when making this movement but also embraced the future by equipping the balance with a state of the art silicon hairspring. Moreover, the ‘inverted in-line lever escapement with silicon horns’ is another illustration of the nonmagnetic material being used. http://www.watchgetluxury.com
