Business Traveller (India) - - CONTENTS -

A.-L. Breguet and his son were the ap­pointed “Chronome­ter-mak­ers to the French Royal Navy” in 1815. The watch­mak­ers cre­ated the most elab­o­rate “equa­tion of time” mod­els of their time. “Equa­tion of time” is known as one of the most in­trigu­ing horo­log­i­cal com­pli­ca­tions ever made. It’s de­signed to dis­play the diͿer­ence be­tween mean so­lar time, cor­re­spond­ing to civil or stan­dard hours and min­utes, and true so­lar time, mean­ing the ac­tual so­lar hours and min­utes. As a trib­ute to its mar­itime her­itage, Breguet launched Ma­rine Équa­tion Marchante 5887 at Basel­world 2017. The watch fea­tures a run­ning “equa­tion of time”, a per­pet­ual cal­en­dar and a tour­bil­lon. The back of the piece is em­bel­lished with beau­ti­ful en­grav­ings that cel­e­brate the spirit of the navy. It fea­tures an al­li­ga­tor strap with a gold fold­ing clasp, a stun­ning blue dial and a sap­phire­crys­tal case-back.
