Are you ready to travel the world? Breguet sure wants you to and that’s evident with the company unveiling two new models in its classic Marine Hora Mundi collection
For 2022, Breguet brings us the latest interpretation of its classic Hora Mundi model within the Marine Collection, called the 5557 Marine Hora Mundi.
Available in two 43.9mm versions crafted in white and rose gold, the new Breguet Hora Mundi models play with different perspectives and a sharp focus on little details sprinkled across the watch. Both the models are home to a fascinating blue sunburst dial that creates an impression of a permanent waltz of the wave motifs. Sitting above these abyssal blue dials are the continents that offer a fascinating interpretation of the world on the wrist. Making the dial legible are the luminescent hour markers and hands. A hand-hammered Sun and Moon indicator at 4 o’ clock, a special date window at 12 o’ clock with a special retrograde hand with a rounded “U-shaped” tip that circles the date of each passing day, and a metallised anchor 6 o’ clock are other details on the dial that makes the watch interesting.
Talking about technical mastery, one of the main reasons why the Hora Mundi enjoys the popularity it does is because it offers an instant change dual-time display, and this is made possible via the pusher and crown. All one needs to do is select the first time and date of the first city, and then set the second city. The watch mechanism then calculates the time and date by means of a clever system of cams, hammers, and an integrated differential. All of these functions are made possible with the help of the unique Calibre 77F1 mechanical self-winding movement, clocking in a power reserve of 55 hours.
Both the rose and white gold 5557 Marine Hora Mundi models are available with either a leather strap, rubber strap or a gold bracelet.
