BREGUET – CLASSIQUE CHRONOGRAPH OPENWORKED 5284
Sparing no effort, Breguet digs deep into its archives to present this captivating beauty endowed with historically inspired embellishments. The skeletonised hand-wound movement that powers this watch is based on the legendary Lemania CH 27 movement from the 1940s, an industry standard-bearer known for its robustness and reliability. Here, the movement is given a new lease of life with elaborate hand-finishing and engraving, proudly displayed via an openworked dial. More hat-doffs to the past can be found on the open-tipped hands, inspired by a 1783 design created by the brand’s eponymous founder himself; as well as the fine fluting on the case band, which is reminiscent of Breguet’s earliest timepieces.
