Virtuozity - - WATCH NEWS -

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.
