In the watchmaking world, the Breguet brand has a unique and vital status. The founder of the brand, Abraham-Louis Breguet, with his unparalleled enthusiasm and many revolutionary pioneering fame, has won numerous reputations, leading Breguet to create one legend after another, and its outstanding watchmaking skills have won the hearts of the people. Recently, the House of Watches visited the Breguet boutique in Beijing’s SKP mall. In the boutique, we admired Breguet’s exquisite series of watches, including the Breguet Marine Marine Series 5887 Tourbillon Time Equation watch. I am deeply impressed that this watch has exquisite craftsmanship and excellent performance. Those who like it may wish to go to the counter to try it. (Watch model: 5887BR / 12 / 9WV)
The Breguet Marine Marine Series 5887 Tourbillon Time Equation Watch combines three functions of tourbillon, time equation and perpetual calendar. This outstandingly complex watch marks the Breguet Marine Marine Series entering a new era. The perpetual calendar is relatively familiar to everyone. It can display the date, day of the week, and month, and can automatically recognize the special year and month. The practical function is very strong. The time equation display is a particularly fascinating complication that shows the difference between average solar time (‘flat solar time’) and real solar time (‘true solar time’). The 60-second tourbillon adds more mechanical beauty to the watch, and Breguet’s watchmaking skills are fully exhibited while rotating.
The watch is 43.9 mm in diameter and is made of 18K rose gold. After the bezel is polished, it emits a warm luster. The outer edge of the case is decorated with coin patterns, which makes it recognizable at a glance.
The central lugs are polished and alternately polished with satin finish for better visual effects.
The crown on the side is polished with a delicate satin finish and engraved with a polished ‘B’ sample brand LOGO. It also has a non-slip texture design, which has a first-class feel and is not easy to slip when adjusting the time.
The front of the silver-plated gold dial is decorated with two different engraved flower patterns. Among them, the exquisite wave pattern is specially designed for this watch. The waves are rolled and sparkling, which is quite interesting. The dial has a day display window from 10 to 11 o’clock, the month and leap year calendar from 1 to 2 o’clock, and a power reserve indicator from 7 to 9 o’clock. A retrograde hand with an anchor motif on the tip of the needle rotates along the fan surface between 9 and 3 o’clock on the inside of the scale ring to indicate the date. The panel is carefully laid out, beautiful and concise, and the time information can be read intuitively and clearly.
A 60-second tourbillon is set between 4 and 5 o’clock, and a Breguet balance wheel is built into the titanium frame with a silicon hairspring. This innovative design allows the balance to vibrate up to 4 Hz, while providing a self-winding movement with a sufficient power reserve of up to 80 hours. The tourbillon runs coaxially with the cam of time equation. Through the transparent sapphire disc, the tourbillon mechanism is clearly presented to our eyes.
The exquisite details of the movement can be seen in detail, the Royal Navy first class battleship ‘Royal Louis’ is engraved on the bridge, and the wind rose is decorated with the nautical compass pattern. The automatic hammer is located on the outer edge of the movement. The gorgeous decoration adds charm to the movement.
Summary: Today, the founder of the brand, Abraham-Louis Breguet, has made a great contribution to the world of watchmaking through his extraordinary talent. As an important complex function, the tourbillon has a profound impact on future generations, and Breguet can touch the soul of the tourbillon, and has created watch generations with its extraordinary watchmaking skills.
