The Combination Of Mechanical And Time Equation Tasting Breguet Marine Équation Marchante 5887 Watch

On October 27, 1815, Abraham-Louis Breguet, a member of the French Longitude Committee, was awarded the official title of ‘Manufacturer of Royal French Royal Precision Timepieces’ by Louis XVIII. As marine precision timekeeping involves extremely deep professional scientific knowledge, this title can also be said to be one of the highest honors that watchmakers can win, but also means shouldering national responsibility. Adhering to the historical achievements of this unique watch altar, Breguet launched a special timepiece at the highly anticipated Basel Watch & Jewellery Expo in 2017, which is the Breguet Marine Equation Marchante 5887 watch. Various functions, such as time equation, perpetual calendar, tourbillon and 80-hour power reserve, mark the entry of the Breguet Marine series into a new era. (Watch model: MARINE 5887 5887PT / Y2 / 9WV 950 Platinum, MARINE 5887 5887BR / 12 / 9WV18K Rose Gold)

Time equation

   The time equation function displays average solar time (‘flat solar time’) and real solar time (‘true solar time’). Normal solar time (that is, civil time), the local standard time is represented by the clock; true solar time reflects the real time law between the sun and the earth. The wearer can read the flat solar time and the true solar time at the same time through two independent minute hands. The true solar time hand is decorated with a hollow faceted golden sun, which is easy to distinguish and can directly read the real solar time at a glance.

   The classic brand-designed coin pattern case is made of 950 platinum with a diameter of 43.9 mm and a thickness of 11.5 mm. Through careful treatment, the high-cold platinum case presents a high-cold style, which is intoxicating.

The polished and satin-finished central lugs are integrated into the case and have a unique style that is impressive.

   The blue gold dial is embellished with a ‘wavy’ engraved pattern, showing the marine charm of the marine collection. The outer ring adopts elegant Arabic numeral time scales, and the luminous part is designed on the outside of each time scale, which contrasts with the central luminous gold Breguet open needle, which can be clearly displayed in flat or true solar time. The week display window is between 10 and 11 hours, the month display window and leap year calendar between 1 and 2 hours, the central retrograde anchor pin indicates the date, and the 8 hour position is composed of the moving display window. The 60-second tourbillon, the internal time equation display device is located at the 5 hour mark position. Through the transparent sapphire disc carrying the cam, the tourbillon and the time equation cam run coaxially and clearly, which shows the delicate layout of the entire watch. People are astounded.

    The back of the movement is also impressive. The back cover is designed through the back, decorated with a wind rose nautical compass pattern barrel, and the automatic pendulum located on the outer edge of the movement is very beautiful. It is equipped with a 581DR self-winding movement, a 60-second tourbillon, a Breguet ring balance in a titanium frame, and a silicon hairspring. These excellent devices make the balance vibrate up to 4 Hz, ensuring the smooth operation of various functions. In addition, the watch has ample power reserve of 80 hours.

   This watch is equipped with a dark blue alligator leather strap, which is comfortable and beautiful. The 950 platinum folding buckle engraved with the Breguet hollow logo is simple and convenient to wear, while ensuring the watch’s safety and reliability at the wrist.
