The Breguet Classique Hora Mundi ref. 5717 in 18K rose gold or platinum is our second favorite worldtimer right after the Patek Philippe ref. 5130 in terms of functionality and our favorite one in terms of design. This watch is fitted with a robust 43mm case and with the Breguet automatic calibre 77F0. For this particular watch, there are three versions of the dial available each representing one part of the world: the Americas, the European and African continents, or Asia and Oceania with a total of six different references. The dial features chapter ring with Arabic numerals, light blue inlay depicting the ocean, highly polished 'bass relief' continent and the Breguet secret signature between 12 and 1 o'clock.
Besides its elegant and unique design, the greatest feature about this watch, is its iconic complication with an instant-jump 24 timezone display system with synchronized date that with the push of the button located at 7 o'clock you can jump from your pre-selected home time to the pre-selected second time zone back and forth as many times as necessary with a synchronized date indicator. The home time and second time zone are displayed in a small aperture at 6 o'clock, the date is displayed at 12 o'clock and a delicate and intricately finished moon phase aperture is located at 3 o 'clock.
