Breguet Marine Big Date 5817ST125V8

Recommended Posts

Greetings,

I received yesterday my first replica from Andrew at Trusty Time based on having reviewed this forum for a while.  I chose an older model Breguet - the Marine Big Date 5817.

Currently I have only one photo of it and want to wear it for a week before reporting back.  It came on a brown leather strap which isn't too bad but I think I will prefer the watch on the included rubber strap.  Once I have that on, I will wear it for a while and then let you know what I think.  The watch LOOKS really good.  The blued hands and numerals are really great.  It is slightly smaller than I imagined but I am starting to get used to it.  It is 39 mm.

Stay tuned.

Nice watch!

I’m still choosing between the 5177 and this one.

Do update with pics and how you feel after wearing it longer!

And this one shows the blue hands reasonably well . . .

The rubber strap is really comfortable, although it doesn't seem quite as thick or perhaps strong as the real thing (yes, I've tried a few real ones on in the shops).  It will be interesting to see how well this ware wears where I wear it.

Having concluded that I'd put the rubber strap on back to front, I have now fixed that and the B for Breguet logo is now no longer upside down when I turn my wrist over.  Having said that, the rubber strap provided is nothing like the ones that ship with the original.  A minor quibble so far, but one I miss because the strap the original has more stainless steel on it and the rubber appears to be more firm.

Still, it is comfortable as anything and it doesn't even feel like I'm wearing a watch!
