Time-hon­oured Clas­sic

India Today - - LAST LOOK -

Tra­di­tion by any other name is a time-hon­oured clas­sic, which seems al­most prophetic when you con­sider the Breguet Tra­di­tion Dame 7038, part of the brand’s Tra­di­tion col­lec­tion that be­longs within the hal­lowed cir­cle of au­then­tic haute hor­logerie icons. Orig­i­nally in­tro­duced in 2005, the sta­ble has ex­panded to in­clude ex­cep­tional mod­els, and most re­cently the rose gold Tra­di­tion Dame. With this self-wind­ing watch, Breguet has suc­cess­fully crafted a fem­i­nine ver­sion whose aes­thetic essence lies in me­chan­i­cal horol­ogy, a field tra­di­tion­ally re­served for men. With a clearly vis­i­ble front and cen­tre of the watch, the bar­rel is dec­o­rated with a rosette mo­tif that is over­lapped at 12 o’clock by a dainty off­set dial in nat­u­ral white moth­erof-pearl. The sand­blasted main­plate and bridges are rhodium-plated to cre­ate a con­trast with the rose gold case, while the bezel is adorned with 68 bril­liant-cut di­a­monds. What’s more, the mag­nif­i­cent crafts­man­ship is also vis­i­ble through the back on the gold os­cil­lat­ing weight, which is graced with the same mo­tif as the bar­rel. Price on re­quest; Avail­abil­ity at bou­tique out­lets
