VIDEO: Maritime mastery with the Breguet Marine 5517

Nick Kenyon

More than 200 years ago, Abraham-Louis Breguet was appointed as an official chronometer maker of the French Navy, and the tradition lives on today in the Breguet Marine 5517. The 5517 is a robust sports watch, machined in a lightweight titanium that almost perfectly matches the deep-grey dial tone, and offers a host of details that any discerning eye should appreciate.

You could talk about the radially brushed dial that explodes from the Breguet logo rather than the typical centre, the flowing wave-like crown guards, or the classic Breguet hands that have been contemporarily reimagined to bring both traditional form and luminous function, and still have minutia to obsess over. This watch gives us the sports watch package we know and love, but offers a little extra that is indisputably Breguet. It’s a compelling blend of heritage and modern horology that is hard to argue with.
