The Hora Mundi joins the Marine nautical fleet with its practical complication that allows you to switch between two time zones at the touch of a button.
The Breguet Marine collection receives the Hora Mundi, a travel watch with an instantaneous second time-zone jumping mechanism and synchronized date and day/night indications. Thanks to a prodigious memory that calculates the time and date through an intricate system of cams, hammers and an integrated differential, the Hora Mundi is one of the most complex GMT watches on the market, but also one of the easiest to handle.
In fact, unlike conventional GMT models, on this Marine it is the central hands that indicate the local time and the reference time on request. And it’s not just the central hands that jump instantly, indicating the reference time or local time, but the date window and day/night indicator also jump. For the “magic” to happen, simply pull out the crown and select the desired time zone and press the button at 8 o’clock and the Breguet Marine Hora Mundi will provide the corresponding time, date, and day/night indication.
Available in a 43.9 mm white or rose gold case, the Breguet Marine Hora Mundi is powered by the in-house automatic caliber 77F1, visible through a sapphire crystal opening in the caseback.
