Tuesday night in Melbourne was quite chilly, and rainy to boot. But that didn’t stop our watch-loving readers from assembling at Fitzroy’s Cutler & Co for something truly special. And that something was a selection of Breguet’s latest and greatest watches, unveiled in Australia for the first time.* And for all that Breguet is known for their distinctive Classique and Tradition lines, those families were barely represented (though the new blue-dialled Classique was present, and indeed a favourite). No, instead the heroes of the night were the new additions to the sporty Marine line, and the feminine Reine de Naples. And after the obligatory introductions from Sandra Moser (Breguet Australia’s General Manager), Andrew and myself, we all got down to the serious business of inspecting watches. And while the queue for the Marine Équation Marchante (which, though it was released a few years ago, still manages to wow) was a strong indicator that people wanted to get up close and personal with a watch that embodies all of what Breguet is capable of, as the night progressed, people started noticing fine details, like the quality of the new titanium bracelet options on the men’s Marine models, and just how stunning…
