From a sportier interpretation of the Marine collection, to the new Marine Haute Joaillerie Poseidonia, here’s a closer look at the Breguet novelties of 2020.
With a longstanding history in marine timekeeping, along with hundreds of filed patents under its portfolio, Breguet has built a solid reputation for fascinating timepieces that command an air of respect and tradition. As we enter a new year, we take a closer look at the Breguet novelties for 2020, including a new interpretation of the iconic Marine collection, and a new Marine Haute Joaillerie 9509 Poseidonia.
The Marine 5517, Marine Chronographe 5527, and Marine Alarme Musicale 5547
An ode to Breguet’s origins rooted in supplying marine chronometers to the French Royal Navy, the Breguet Marine collection has unsurprisingly been a focus of the brand in recent years. For 2020, the line is given a sportier reinterpretation — achieved through exquisitely crafted gold straps that complement the dials of each timepiece.
A rose gold strap is paired with versions with a silver dial, while white gold graces the watches with dials of blue. The true beauty behind these straps, however, are the links. The first link — directly attached, almost to the point of being smoothly integrated to the case — offers a seamless continuation of the Marine to the wrist, offering superior comfort while offering an aesthetic that catches the eye. Reflecting the contrasting gold on the case, links alternate between polished and glossy facets, reflecting Breguet’s emphasis in precision and delicacy.
The Marine Haute Joaillerie 9509 Poseidonia
Marking Breguet’s new watch release for 2020, the Marine Haute Joaillerie Poseidonia beautifully interprets the beauty of the seas. Perhaps the reigning highlight of this particular timepiece is how it draws from the Posidonia oceania, an aquatic plant essential obtained from the depths of the Mediterranean, and one that is essential to maintaining the ocean’s balance.
The simple plant’s elegant arabesques are depicted across the watchface, exquisitely brought to life through the fine art of mother-of-pearl marquetry and invisible setting. Three additional versions are available alongside the classic diamond and Tahitian mother-of-pearl piece. Choose between sapphire-set blue, ruby-set red, and emerald set-green — the dominant hues composing the curves of the Poseidonia in dreamy palettes.
