Breguet unveils Marine Chronographe reference 5824 “200 ans de Marine”.
To mark the bicentenary of Abraham-louis Breguet’s appointment as chronometer-maker to the navy, Breguet has produced one of its most exclusive chronographs—the Marine Chronographe reference 5823 “200 ans de Marine”.
This self-winding watch is limited to 200 copies and is distinguished by its platinum case. Furthermore, its hand-guilloché gold oscillating weight features a two-tone black and rhodiumed exterior. The engine-tuned gold dial, in matt black, indicates the hours and minutes, with thechronograph seconds and minutes hands in the centre.
Each dial is individually numbered and signed by Breguet. The hours are chaptered with luminescent dots and Roman numerals, and there’s a central chronograph with a seconds and minutes counter.
On the inside is a self-winding movement, numbered and signed by Breguet. It’s the calibre 583Q/1, which provides a power reserve of 48 hours. There’s an 18-carat gold rotor, and an inverted inline lever escapement with silicon plates.
This limited edition is further equipped with two subdials, one at 9 o’clock for the running seconds and the other at 6 o’clock for the chronograph hours counter. A dates aperture, also at 6 o’clock, completes the indications on the watch face, which measures 42mm in diameter. The whole piece is delivered on a black rubber strap.
The case comes in 950 platinum with a delicately fluted caseband. The caseback is Sapphire-crystal, and the whole package is water-resistant to 10 bar.
