A VINTAGE CLASSIC
Classique 7147, the latest sensation from the house of Breguet, revisits the brand’s history, evoking the refined details that have characterised the Manufacture since 1775. Harking back to a bygone era, the model brings to life a magnificent artistic craft and complex ornamental technique that has virtually remained unchanged since the Renaissance: the “Grand Feu” enamel. A process that involves applying a vitreous mixture called flux to a metal disc and then firing it in a kiln heated to more than 800°C repeatedly until it attains a radiant whiteness and glowing texture, the dial of the Classique 7147 epitomises this extremely painstaking craft, infusing it with a rare blend of beauty, classicism and tradition. To accentuate its old-world charm, the Classique 7147 comes with dainty Arabic numerals, complemented by the brand’s traditional blued steel Breguet hands that indicate the hours and minutes while a subdial at 5 o’clock gives the small seconds. At its heart lies the Cal 502.3SD self-winding movement, an inverted in-line lever escapement with silicon horns and a silicon spring. The Classique 7147 is available in rose gold and white gold versions.
