Breguet Marine Royale Alarm Watch – Model 5847

Breguet’s Marine collection draws its inspiration from the original designs created by Breguet himself for the French Royal Navy after his 1815 appointment as Horologist to the French Navy. Sturdy in design, Breguet Marine watches have for decades been reputed for their dependable performances.

In 2004 Breguet launched a new interpretation of this product line, featuring a markedly more contemporary and sporty but ever elegant design. Following the launch in 2007 of the first tourbillon equipped chronograph with silicon escapement, this year brings a groundbreaking new design: the Marine Royale alarm watch. Water-resistant to 300 m, this timepiece houses the Breguet Caliber 519R.

Equipped with a self-winding movement, the Breguet Marine Royale 5847 comes with an intriguing alarm complication. To operate the alarm mechanism, this 45mm diameter diving watch in 18K gold features an on/off push-piece at 8 o’clock and an alarm setting push-piece at 4 o’clock for adjusting the arrow-shaped alarm hand.

The alarm setting crown and on-off pushpiece, in gold, are sheathed in rubber for easier handling, adding a further touch of sporty elegance. The one-way rotating bezel in 18K gold is inscribed with a graduated 20-minute sector.

The Breguet Marine Royale 5847 watch possesses the date indicator at 6 o’clock, and the alarm power-reserve display in an aperture between 9 and 11 o’clock.

The bezel’s unidirectional rotation is secured by a blocking pawl, visible and located between the two winding crowns on the case flank. Shaped like a wave, it recalls the watch’s essential functions.

To minute markers and hand along with the hour hand are coated with white luminous superluminova while the hour and alarm markers glow blue. Represented by a blue triangular pointer at 10 o’clock, the power-reserve indicator is also luminous.

Featured here, the pink gold Marine Royale 5847 watch features an 18K pink gold dial. The white gold version comes with an 18K dial with black rhodium finish. Both are manually engine-turned with the collection’s dedicated wave pattern.
