At 66%off, still decided to pass.

Won't see that deal again, but it's not the watch for me.

Not a buy and flip person either.

Opinions requested! What do you think of the Breguet 5317, please?

 By: Spangles - Mr. Tabby : May 15th, 2019-11:19
Received an unexpected offer and the input of Watchpros will make deciding more fun. I like Breguet more than is healthy! Please give your take, like or dislike and why! Thanks! ...  

I had this one once.

Gorgeous movement. But tourbillons aren’t magical to me. Make sure that that complication alone will satisfy you.

I appreciate it, what led you to move on?

 By: Spangles - Mr. Tabby : May 15th, 2019-11:55
Something specific or just not magically delicious?

I guess the latter.

At the time I got it I thought I had achieved horological heaven: a Breguet tourbillon. Then I quickly realized that tourbillons did nothing enchanting for me. I came to the opinion that they were vanity projects for watchmakers. Which is fine-much of mec... 

I'm glad I asked! [nt]

The longest tourbillon history for sure!

Anything that rankles about this one or just others sing more to you?

Looking forward to it! [nt]

Lugs apart, I love Breguets

and its wide selection of tourbillons, the 5317 being no exception! That 5 day power reserve was quite something in its day and still is actually. The engraved movement is a huge plus and I will not even mention the dial

Thanks Sham!

The engraved movement is part of the allure!

Stunning movement

Very balanced dial. If the goal is to own a tourbillon this is the classic example. I think there are other Breguet references that are more graceful with more complicated guilloche but this is definitely a serious presence on the wrist. I wouldn't say no...

I just deeply imagine what it will be like, and if it's disappointing then I don't go ahead.

It's also why I didn't marry a girlfriend or two!

I agree sincerely

I’m much more hesitant now, before pulling the trigger. It has to be a burning desire to own it, before I buy it. There are so many watches that I like - but I’m not sure they would make me a happier person. Ownership is an other issue.

A very nice watch, great complication horologically (but I feel a bit like Padj).

 By: eklektik : May 17th, 2019-05:00
5 days Reserve is very nice, although I feel they should have put a 0 instead of the decreasing lines, it does not match the rest of the style of the watch. It is a Breguet so should be easy to resell if you don't feel the love anymore (although I never b... 

I passed on it!

Bought a good example of a yellow gold bracelet pre-swatch Breguet that I think will be fun to own.

Thanks and appreciated! [nt]

I hate excessive text

 By: Spartacus : May 17th, 2019-08:42
Especially on a dress watch. That means the "five days" on the top example is a non-starter for me. I much prefer using all Roman numerals like the bottom example. I find the shape of the power reserve window, specifically the hard acute angle at the bott... 

Yes, lovely but didn't grab me. [nt]
