BREGUET MARINE ÉQUATION MARCHANTE 5887

Jetgala - - LUXE -

In 1815, A.L. Breguet be­came the of­fi­cial chronome­ter-maker to the French Royal Navy, making him the au­thor­ity in cal­cu­lat­ing lon­gi­tudes at sea. The Marine Équation Marchante 5887 is the new­est ad­di­tion to that proud nau­ti­cal tra­di­tion. The 950 plat­inum case houses a blue dial in­scribed with a wave pat­tern cre­ated specif­i­cally for this model. The words ‘Marine royale’ are en­graved on the tour­bil­lon bar. The bridges, vis­i­ble through the sap­phire case­back, are dec­o­rated to de­pict the Royal Louis, a first rank ves­sel of the French Royal Navy. The self-wind­ing move­ment pow­ers a per­pet­ual cal­en­dar, 80-hour power re­serve, and equa­tion of time — a so­phis­ti­cated in­di­ca­tion of civil time and true time by means of two sep­a­rate min­utes hands.
