Breguet, being fully aware of women’s interest in watches, gallantly undertakes to design watches for them fitted with mechanical movements especially suited to women. As a result of this approach, the brand introduced the 8827 a few years ago, a Marine Chronograph for women that was soon marked out for a style evoking elegant activity. Now Breguet unveils a new version of this ever-contemporary watch. Introduced in a 34.6mm steel case water resistant to 5 bar (50m), this model displays a very feminine dial in white mother-of-pearl.

Like its predecessors, it adds to its beauty all the functions of a real chronograph with the hours and minutes in the centre, small seconds and a dates window at 6 o’clock. Pressing the chronograph button sets in motion the central seconds hand, the 30 minutes counter at 3 o’clock and the 12 hours counter at 9 o’clock. This is all made possible by the calibre 550, a self-winding movement with a power reserve of 45 hours. To meet every desire, two kinds of bracelet are offered with this watch. The first, a turquoise leather strap, is exclusive to the model, and the other is a new metal bracelet designed to fit all the reference 8827 watches.
