Breguet Marine Chronograph - Review
This Breguet watch is just too hard to miss and makes a statement with your wrist.
Review of the Breguet Marine Chronograph
This 18kt rose gold Breguet timepiece features their signature Breguet style hands and coined edges. With the Breguet caliber 517gg featuring thirty-five jewels in movement, this watch has a beating heart that can hold its power for approx 65 hours. Unlike most luxury watches, this 18kt rose gold Breguet Marine 5817 watch arrives with not just the sporty rubber strap depicted here, but also with an alligator/crocodile leather strap as well for those classy and formal dress situations. A truly versatile watch with 100m water resistance and possibly one of the nicest watches in the Breguet Marine Automatic Big Date Series.
Another convenient feature is the double window Big Date located at the 6 o'clock position. Currently on special at only $15,500 with a manufacturer's suggested retail price of only $22,000, a humble price for a Breguet watch at any stretch. Some Breguet models retail at over $300,000. In terms of style, the 5817 uses black and rose gold which is a combination that has grown in popularity over the years. Rolex has a watch with a similar material and precious metal color combination with the Yacht-Master 116655 and the watch is actually quite popular, not just because it's the first of their watches that ever used a rubber strap but also because just like the Breguet 517gg, the design looks classy, sporty, and makes you look seriously with-it.
