LADIES MARINE BY BREGUET MARITIME ELEGANCE

The Marine by Breguet embodies a desire to travel the seas, and be carried by the winds and currents. Breguet dedicates this collection to modern-day women explorers.
Leaning on a wealth of watchmaking know-how, the House of Breguet unveils the Marine watch collection for women, inspired by our oceans. As a specialist in guillochage (or engine-turning), Breguet has designed an original motif that reflects the flow of waves on the dial. The second hand, as one of several details echoing the marine world, is decorated with a maritime flag representing the initial of Breguet.
 
True to Breguet’s tradition, this collection combines refinement with technical performance. This watch beats to the rhythm of the self-winding 591A caliber, a manufacture movement 3.41 millimeters thick with a date display. The Marine will fit even the finest of wrists: flexible strap fasteners extend from the case with a diameter of less than 34 millimeters.
 
Available in steel as well as rose or white gold, the Marine also features precious variations, with the bezel ringed and illuminated by diamonds. For the gold models, the diamond setting is continued on the bevel of the rotor and the crown protection, bringing the total to 1.26 carats. Depending on the variant, the Marine dial is adorned with an ocean-blue lacquer with light reflections, or with polished or engine-turned mother-of-pearl.
 

A Craft Inspired by the Sea

 
The engine-turning artisans of the House of Breguet have created a unique design evoking the sea as it laps the shore. This pattern, called marea, or tide, incorporates curves; in contrast to the classic guillochage, which consists of straight lines and circles, the curves in this design capture the natural movement of the water. The development of the marea pattern took several months, including the manufacture of special cams for the engine-turning lathes. The artisans of the House of Breguet have made this demanding design come alive on mother-of-pearl, a particularly fragile material, which graces the dial and rotor of the movement for this collection.
 

Marine Dame 9518 in Diamond-Set Steel

 
The House of Breguet also offers the Marine in steel and inlaid steel. The dials of these models are done in natural opaline mother-of-pearl or marbled blue lacquer, animated by clearer volutes reminiscent of the white-horses of the sea – or a starlit night sky, which was used for navigation in former times. To achieve this decor, the artisan applies a clear lacquer on the still liquid azure material. When they come into contact, the colors marbleize and create a unique image, thus rendering each piece exclusive. Visible by the sapphire-crystal caseback, the rotor bears the engine-turned marea motif in mother-of-pearl – in azure or white, depending on the shade of the dial. The bezel of the inlaid-steel variant is enlivened by 60 brilliant-cut diamonds.
