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

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 totally understand your two reasons. This GP... Hmmmmmmmmmmm!

 By: amanico : October 30th, 2022-09:10

Yes. Those GP Tourbillon are quite nice.

 By: patrick_y : October 30th, 2022-11:08

I have seen them in the flesh

 By: MTR : October 30th, 2022-11:41
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 !

 By: borisundercover : October 30th, 2022-09:19
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: 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).


A true beauty. If you can this would be a great addition to your collection imho 👌🏻

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 black strap is ok.

If you have a house and a couple of nice cars, and still some cash after the purchase, than there is no hurdle on the road.

I see ones a Breguet Marine in a shop and i looked also at images on the internet.
It depends on how the images are taken.
Sure, a Marine is a different Breguet than the tourbillon you post, albeit it was a guilloché Bregeut i had ones in my own hands. Impressive and not expensive. A serious professional bike.

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 can afford the object of desire or not?

I feel this way when I think about how hard many people work and will never be able to afford it.
I have also worked hard for decades and am now reaping the rewards. There always remains a feeling of gratitude. So I am well aware of this happiness of prosperity.
And still, on the other hand, I also have a bad conscience when I buy a luxury item in this price category.

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 first celebration for the sweat and tears.
My advice to them is to set a Rolex out of their mind and focus on a decent Fortis.

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. 🙄🙏

Sounds like you need both then! ;)

 By: BigFatPauli : October 30th, 2022-22:57

Dear Pauli,

 By: MTR : October 31st, 2022-00:28
that's exactly the kind of advice



:) :) :)

My favorite version is...

I know. I know. ☺️

And I am not a big fan of black watches!!!

 By: amanico : October 30th, 2022-16:44

Also that I know. ☺️

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
