I tried this nice gem on my wrist. 39 mm perfection in Platinum. I have much to think about now… Sorry for the photo quality. The light conditions, where not that easy. All the best Thomas ...  

Why are you hesitating?

 By: amanico : October 30th, 2022-09:00

2 things.

 By: MTR : October 30th, 2022-09:08
1. The costs. I don’t make such decisions in a rush. Other people buy a (small) house or 5 cars for this money. 2. The GP Neo Tourbillon that still haunts my dreams.

I have seen them in the flesh

in various variants. They are … outstanding. For me the “modern” interpretation. Although the architecure of these bridges is quite old, too. The Breguet Tourbillon is the classic. The beginning of everything. The origin.

Yep... Dream watch for me.

The 5317 was always one of my favorite tourbillon models from Breguet.

 By: jlux : October 30th, 2022-09:16
And the movement side with all this hand engraving is sublime too!

Tourbilloning eyes on this one !

I understand the hesitation, although imho this Breguet has a historical “plus” on the GP, and is perfect in platinum. So I’d go for this one 😬👌🏻 Congratulations in advance regardless of your choice !

Funny ... this one came to my attantion too, recently.

On the internet, not in a shop.

There were other variations (from Breguet and other brands) on the internet

 By: MTR : October 30th, 2022-11:50
that inspired me a lot more. But when I saw this 5317 in the flesh, it … flashed me (nice pun, at least for someone whose first language is not English 😁) I've written it here again and again, but I seem to have to remind myself over and over again, too: ... 

Dangerous for the wallet

 By: Weems@8 : October 30th, 2022-12:59
For me it is a no brainer to go for this Breguet. Sure, the GP’s are awesome, hard to ignore. A power reserve meter, a tourbillon, a second hand on the tourbillon, a platinum case, 39mm case size, Breguet hands (it is a Breguet, coincidence), and even the... 

An interesting and differentiated answer.

 By: MTR : October 30th, 2022-14:04
Thank you very much. I see and understand your inclination towards Breguet. Regardless of the number of houses and cars: do you also have a kind of psychological pain threshold/barrier where you think twice about an acquisition, regardless of whether you ... 

An interesting view

 By: Weems@8 : October 30th, 2022-16:10
Yes, your way is great. I peak a little what the Breguet 5317 price new is. 🤗. A bit over 1 ton plus a green Submariner with box and papers. I commit, a Breguet Marine in stainless steel is cheaper. For the hard workers a Breitling Navitimer can be their ... 

This watch makes my knees weak.

Mine, too, mine, too…

 By: MTR : October 30th, 2022-13:17
More than this one? Or this one? ☺️ ...  

Maybe in the flesh it can

 By: Weems@8 : October 30th, 2022-13:48
How nice the skeletonized three bridges GP’s look at the pictures, i will take the Breguet 5317 as my choice.

I hear you.

 By: MTR : October 30th, 2022-21:45
You definitely have your own taste and know what you want. I like that.

For me, yes. The GP, though really cool, doesn't get me excited at all.

 By: BigFatPauli : October 30th, 2022-14:05
But that's a very personal thing and each person is different. As they say, trust your gut and get the one that sings to you.

That’s an excellent recommendation.

 By: MTR : October 30th, 2022-21:46
The only problem is: BOTH sing to me. 🙄🙏

Dear Pauli,

 By: MTR : October 31st, 2022-00:28
that's exactly the kind of advice I ABSOLUTELY DON'T NEED!!!! Hahahahaha

I love silver guilloche

 By: penfriend : October 30th, 2022-16:57
but I would want to see it on the whole dial and not disturbed by a tourbillon. Because although I like tourbillons a guilloche dial has more appearance and structure when being plain imho ...  

Mamma mia... This one!

 By: amanico : October 30th, 2022-17:21

Your MB is an outstanding beauty.

 By: MTR : October 30th, 2022-21:41
I understand what you mean. But somehow this „Tourbillon hole“ doesn’t disturb me. I find the dial of the 5317 perfect. The PR indicator at 12 is the perfect counterweight for me. All the best Thomas

Tough choosing between this Breguet and the GP. Normally, I’d say GP but then you said..

 By: Echi : October 31st, 2022-00:26
“The beginning of everything” .. something about that thought which would make me say Breguet! One thing’s for sure, you’re not gonna make a mistake with either.

Well said. It’s for sure easier than choosing between two loving woman. ☺️🙏
