Breguet – Marina Chronograph reviewed

Credited with creating the first wristwatch in 1810, Breguet is one of the oldest and most prestigious watch brands in the world. Previously Enjoyed Watches has me testing out the breathtaking Breguet Marine Chronograph in 18K Rose Gold. Having a vast company history is great, but how will the watch be seen by me (your average watch guy)? I’m excited to share my experience with this watch and tell you all about it. Lets go!

A little bit about Breguet; Abraham-Louis Breguet was the companies founder. One of his first accomplishments was creating the Perpétuelle. This was the word he used to describe the self-winding ability he created. His first Perpétuelle was sold in 1780 to the Duc d’Orléans and after this he became very famous in the court of Versailles and throughout Europe. In 1810, he created the first wristwatch and that really changed the entire watch industry. Breguet prides themselves on tireless innovation and remaining ahead of one’s time. The brand defined is one of the modern art of matchmaking.

Previously Enjoyed Watches has quite a few Breguet watches for sale right now in case you’re interested in looking for different models. The Marine Chronograph is certainly one of the more popular styles. It has a classic essence with a modern twist. The Rose Gold is striking and in contrast to the black rubber strap its complimented very well. In my opinion this watch has some serious stopping power. This watch does not go unnoticed! If your looking for a subtle piece, this isn’t it. I can picture this watch being the perfect edition to a power suit or weekend on a yacht. It would elevate either occasions outfit. Having the rubber strap, does however make it a little less formal. But, in todays fashion climate, supper formal is more of a rare occasion.

The other way to look at it is this… wear what you want, how you want. Let me give you an example. The Rolex day-date president has always kind of been know as the old man watch. We are seeing fashion designers like Virgil Abloh (Louis Vuitton) and Jerry Lorenzo (Fear of God), wearing these watches with sweatpants and sneakers. Its a new world of style and there are less and less rules about what should be done. Thats being said, I wore this watch with sweatpants, denim, shorts, and even a suit (yes… i wear suits)!

Don’t be afraid to break the watch stereotypes and wear something that may be different then the norm. If you love a watch, that’s the watch you should invest your money into. That being said, I would “invest” in watch brands that have a long standing reputation. Previously Enjoyed Watches can get you that watch you have always wanted, but maybe is a little out of your price range. Getting a new watch isn’t always the best decision, don’t be afraid to see what’s out there and how much you can save.
