Though the watch yr remains to be younger, Breguet’s new Marine Hora Mundi is likely to be probably the most spectacular GMT watch of 2022. Whereas this complication is usually introduced with refined craftsmanship depicting a world map on the dial, Breguet pulled out all of the stops with this watch face. It gives an extremely detailed interpretation of the subject by a harmoniously orchestrated play on supplies and superimposed plates, which ends up in a surprising depth.
On the primary gold base, the maritime line’s signature tiny waves created by conventional guilloche methods lap gently towards the shores of the displayed continents. A superimposed sapphire crystal pane, on which the continents with turquoise edges and the longitudes are depicted, builds the subsequent degree. Though small and filigree, every aspect clearly stands out from the ensemble. This additionally consists of the solar and moon which seem in a window at 4 o’clock and supply the day-night indication. Whereas the solar shines in brilliant pink gold, the nocturnal planet is rhodium-plated and seems in a mysterious grey.
Excessive consideration went additionally into the date indication under 12 o’clock. With its U-shaped tip, a retrograde hand factors to the present date.
On the other facet of the dial, the show of the time zones’ cities is positioned at 6 o’clock. A small anchor image references the chosen metropolis.
Effectively, the internal workings don’t fail to impress both. The moment-change dual-time mechanism with a reminiscence operate that was debuted some years in the past within the Classique Hora Mundi and whose ingenuity is protected by for 4 patents permits to change between two timezones immediately.
This technical feat is achieved through the pusher and crown. Having chosen the time and date of a desired time zone, the proprietor opts for the second metropolis. The mechanism then calculates its time and date through of a fancy system of cams, hammers and an built-in differential. As soon as set, merely urgent the pusher is sufficient to “journey” from one finish of the planet to the opposite, all with out disturbing the correct operating of the watch.
The 43.9 mm-diameter case, obtainable in white and rose gold, homes calibre 77F1 with a frequency of 4 Hz and an influence reserve of 56 hours.
