Marine blue

The Bucherer Blue Editions collection, comprising more than 30 watches from nearly 20 different watchmaking companies, is for the first time welcoming a Breguet timepiece. And which model could be better suited than a Marine to this collection dedicated to the color blue and attached to technical innovation as well as superlative horological quality ? An exclusive reinterpretation of the 2017 Marine 5517, the Marine 5517 Bucherer Blue Editions is mainly distinguished by the silvered chapter ring that contains and highlights the hand guilloché wave motif of a necessarily blue dial. True to its vocation, and in homage to the title of Watchmaker to the French Navy that Louis XVIII awarded to Abraham-Louis Breguet, this sports watch with its unequalled elegance features a host of more or less discreet maritime references. The 40mm case with its fluted case is made of titanium which is resistant to salty air and corrosion ; the crown features a wave design and the seconds hand is tipped with the letter “B” in a reinterpreted version of the maritime signal flag. Visible through the sapphire crystal caseback, the five-spoke semi-circular oscillating weight resembles a rudder wheel, a pattern also picked up on the strap buckle, while the mainplate evokes the wooden slats of a ship’s deck.
