At Baselworld 2010, in March, I had a chance to view Breguet’s new collection. The new Marine Royale watch are pretty impressive. They’re available in either 18K white gold or rose gold. Four versions in total: white gold with white gold dial, white gold with a dark dial, rose gold with rose gold dial or rose gold with a dark dial.
The solid gold case is 45 mm by 17.45 mm and inside is the in-house designed, produced and assembled 519R caliber self-winding movement with alarm mechanism. There is a security ratchet of the turning bezel visible at 3 o’clock. The bezel is unidirectional with a luminous mark. The alarm on/off push-piece is at 8 o’clock.
The alarm setting push-piece is at 4 o’clock. Black rhodium gold or white/rose gold dial, hand-engraved on a rose engine. A triangular hand at the center for setting the alarm time. The alarm power-reserve indication is displayed in an aperture between 9 and 11 o’clock. The alarm on/off indicator is shown in a round aperture at 12 o’clock. The date is at 6 o’clock. Breguet hands are coated with a luminous compound. Water-resistant to 300m. Sapphire-crystal caseback. (Ref. 5847BB/12/BZ0)
