    Breguet

    Not many Breguet watches on the forum and I find this strange given the history of the brand.
    I know there is a beautiful blue dial XX around but has anyone else got a picture of a Breguet in their collection?

    Bought for a decent price IMHO a couple of weeks into lockdown. I do have the bracelet but need links to size it. Anyone?

    I really like the new Marine and wish they did the blue dial in the steel model rather than just white gold.

    You will lose your shirt on pricing but they are a great brand.

    I have the old marine and absolutely love it. The finishing of the movement is a thing of beauty.

    The watch is quite hard to photograph due to its polished case though!

    It's a Breguet Marine (ref 5817). I think the marine was Breguet's first venture away from their more tradional dress watches. Has the iconic Breguet hands and coin edged case but in a more sporty / modern design. It's not everyones cup of tea but I love it.

    I was thinking exactly the same not long ago, close to pulling trigger on a 3800 with tritium dial. Love the dome sapphire on these combine with the yellow patina numerals and hands.

    I also love the 5817. In fact, I bought a short length rubber strap from the boutique in anticipation of picking one up.

    I also love love love the new style XXI, with big (huge) numerals and black date wheel.

    How does it wear on the wrist and what size wrist do you have?
