Breguet’s Diamond Masterpiece

James D. Malcomson

Breguet’s latest jeweled Marine Chronograph Tourbillon breaks the traditional pattern set by this most prominent maker of the complication. The marque’s Marine case is its most bulky and bold, and best suited to the elaborate jeweling pattern executed on this model. Instead of a traditional baguette bezel, the Marine Chronograph Tourbillon reference 5839 ($357,200) employs trapezoidal and triangular-cut baguettes that mesh perfectly into the angled bezel. Standard baguettes make up the side fluting, and pavé diamonds set off the brushed chapter ring, turning case details that have been hallmarks of Breguet timepieces since the 18th century into beautiful demonstrations of jewelry expertise.
