Marine GMT with second time-zone
Having become a member of the Board of Longitude in Paris in 1814,
Abraham-Louis Breguet was appointed Horologer to the French Royal
Navy by Louis XVIII the following year. This prestigious title is now
perpetuated in the Marine GMT 5857 model with second time-zone.
While two central hands indicate local time, the off-centred chapter
ring complemented by a 24-hour subdial indicates the reference time.
History is still being written...
Breguet, the innovator.
