Being punctual is a wonderful trait, and one that is easily managed via the Breguest Marine Hora Mundi, a magnificent piece of wrist art. A total of 384 components, including a gold Breguet balance wheel and a 40-jewel automatic movement with a 55-hour power reserve, reside within the generously-sized 43.9 mm round white gold casing, beneath a blue dial bearing a majestic hand-engraved map of the globe accented with hand-guilloćhe waves, Roman numerals and a moon-phase sub-dial. A sapphire caseback provides an excellent view of the movement in action.
