Breguet Unveils Marine Royal Alarm Watch

Aug 01, 2009
The renowned watch manufacture of Breguet has recently produced the Marine Royal Alarm watch, Ref. 5847, animated by a twin-barrel movement. The first barrel is intended for timekeeping and the second one is meant for the alarm. A single crown is used to wind both barrels.

The case, measuring 45 mm, comes in pink or white gold. The watch in question is submersible to 300 meters.

The Marine Royal Alarm watch’s case is fitted with a unidirectional bezel, which happens to be inscribed with a graduated 20-minute sector. Placed between two winding crowns on the case flank, the blocking pawl reliably secures the bezel’s rotation. The crowns are screw down; the alarm-setting crown and the on/off push-piece are created from gold and sheathed in rubber to facilitate the handling process.

To ensure accurate reading of the time, the minute markers, as well as both minute and hour hands, are treated with white Superluminova substance. The hour and alarm markers are performed in sparkling blue. A blue triangular pointer, located at 10 o’clock, is a power reserve indicator, which also features luminous coating.

The sapphire-crystal glass exposes a magnifying lens, located over the date at 6 o'clock. The case-back is also in sapphire. The Marine Royal Alarm watch features rounded horns, welded to the case.

The strap of the timepiece, is affixed by screw pins.

The bezel’s one-way rotation is assured by a wave-shaped ratchet located at 3 o’clock. The alarm on/off push-piece is placed at 8 o’clock. The alarm setting push-piece is placed at 4 o’clock.

Crafted in 18k pink gold, the dial comes with a wave pattern engraved by hand on a rose engine, and reveals an individual number and an inscription Breguet. The chapter ring demonstrates applied Roman numerals performed in blue and lustrous dots. A triangular hand, located at the center, serves to set the alarm time. The alarm on/off indicator is visible through a round exhibition window at 12 o'clock. Facetted, open-tipped hands by Breguet are performed in white gold and feature luminous applications.

The Breguet watch is powered by the Cal. 519R automatic mechanical movement with an alarm mechanism, which is individually numbered and signed Breguet. The movement is set with 36 jewels and offers a power reserve of 45 hours. It also incorporates an engine-turned rotor, rendered in 18K rose gold.

The Breguet Marine Royal Alarm watch is proposed in two versions. The white gold Ref. 5847 model is offered with an 18k dial, featuring a black rhodium finish, while the pink gold interpretation comes with an18k pink gold dial. Both versions reveal the line’s dedicated wave pattern.
