BREGUET CLASSIQUE HORA MUNDI 5717 SELECTED BY ROBB REPORT AS “BEST OF THE BEST MEN’S WATCHES FUNCTIONALITY”

06/06/2012

Breguet's Classique Hora Mundi 5717 has been included among Robb Report magazine’s 2012 "Best of the Best" selections, notably for its beauty and functionality. The Classique Hora Mundi is the first example of a mechanical timepiece with an instant-jump time-zone display. This function allows the traveller to easily display the time in two pre-selected time zones, changing instantly from one to the other simply by pressing a button, without disturbing the operation of the watch. Accurate operation during setting is ensured by a stop second system. Changing the time zone affects not only the time, but also the date synchronised through a “tracking” calendar system – and the day/night indicator. This unique timepiece is made of precious materials: 18-carat red gold or 950 platinum. Three versions of the dial are available, each representing one part of the world: the Americas, the European and African continents, or Asia and Oceania.
