Breguet 5517

May 27, 2021,16:14 PM

I wanted to post a few quick pics before the scratches and dings accumulate. This watch has been widely panned based on pictures. It’s much nicer in person. Many designs are criticized for being too traditional or only drawing on the past. I like the willingness to create a new design. The intricacy of the titanium milling and polishing is impressive. It’s very comfortable on the wrist and easy to wear.

How is the bracelet?

I have tried this and the chronograph on several times before but have never seen one on bracelet. Does it have any micro adjust or half links?

The bracelet is comfortable.

There is no micro adjust. I enjoy that on other watches. I knew that when choosing this watch, but I was ok without it. The titanium makes for a light watch and bracelet which is something I like. Obviously, the gold models would feel very different. The ...  

Very nice Breguet Marine! The bracelet is also very comfortable.

I tried on the wg version recently! ...  

That's beautiful.

My dealer only had the titanium (which is what I was looking for), but the entire line is compelling. The guilloche dial and precious metal cases and bracelets are great.

Good looking Breguet.

With the steel bracelet the lug design is much more coherent than with the rubber strap.

Thank you, I like the lug design. It works well with the caseband which is recessed from the back and the bezel.

I’m surprised that the bracelet was not offered when these were launched. It took a few years to add the titanium and then the gold bracelets to the collection.

What's the lug to lug on this?

looks like it wears great and nice and compact from lug to lug unlike the options from UN

It wears well.

It’s hard to measure due to the design but it’s about 46 mm to the outside of the screws that mount the bracelet to the lugs.
