Breguet’s Marine Collection has always called out to the open seas and with the introduction of two new contemporary models, this call is getting even louder. While one model is graced with a sunburst blue dial, the second hints at the sea foam dancing on the shoreline with a silver toned dial. Both models reflect the sunshine sparkling on the waves as eight diamonds adorn the hour markers while is bezel is frosted with 50 diamonds.

True to Breguet’s signature attributes, the Marine 9518 features the facetted gold hour and minute hands are in a luminescent glow and display the famous eccentric open-tipped style. In a reference to maritime signals, the tip of the seconds hand signifies the letter B for Bravo in navigation codes. At 3 O’clock, the crown guard is distinguished by the wave shape characteristics of the Marine Line. The case band bears the iconic fluted guilloche that the brand is so known and loved for.

Beating inside the 33.8 mm diameter case, 187 components drive the 591A self-winding movement with 38 hour power reserve.
