Baselworld 2018: Breguet Marine Alarme Musicale 5547
Breguet is enriching its new generation of Marine watches with a creation housing no less than three horological complications. In addition to an alarm, the Marine Alarme Musicale 5547 displays a second time zone as well as the date.
The alarm is a multi-purpose function suited to a number of daily requirements, including wake-up calls and reminders of appointments or events. When the striking mechanism is triggered, a ship’s bell appears through an opening at 12 o’clock, a subtle nod to the maritime world of the collection. The alarm and second time-zone indications appear in two separate subdials at 3 and 9 o’clock. The striking mechanism power reserve is discreetly visible between 9 and 12 o’clock.
When the model is fully wound, the arrow points to the all-red indication at 9 o’clock. The Marine Alarme Musicale 5547 also features a date display at 6 o’clock. Its luminescent hands and markings ensure easy reading of the time by day or night.
Breguet presents this new creation in several versions. The model with a white gold case is fitted with a blue dial, while the rose gold model has a silvered dial. The two faces bear a fine wave-like engine-turned pattern. 2018 also sees this line welcome a new material: titanium. This light and particularly sturdy metal also appeals for its resistance to salty air and corrosion. The titanium version features a slate grey dial. Breguet complements this model with a choice of a leather or rubber strap.
