There were other variations (from Breguet and other brands) on the internet
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: never rely just on the pictures on the internet!!
You just have to see a watch live on your wrist.
This Breguet in real life is incomparably more effective and convinces me much more than on “flat” images. So I wouldn’t have chosen it just with the internet pictures in mind.
Also the case size of 39mm is more than enough (normally I won’t buy beyond 40 mm, because despite my narrow wrist, I only feel comfortable with this case size. For whatever reason).

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 ...
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.
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 !
Dangerous for the wallet
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.
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
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 ...
Maybe in the flesh it can
How nice the skeletonized three bridges GP’s look at the pictures, i will take the Breguet 5317 as my choice.
I hear you.
You definitely have your own taste and know what you want. I like that.
that's exactly the kind of advice I ABSOLUTELY DON'T NEED!!!! Hahahahaha
I love silver guilloche
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 ...
Your MB is an outstanding beauty.
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
