A STUDY IN MIN­I­MAL­ISM

India Today - - FETISH -

The hy­per-dig­i­tal age gives us lit­tle room for the ap­pre­ci­a­tion of sim­plic­ity, the mech­a­nism of move­ment and the beauty of time. In 2018, Breguet in­ter­prets the sim­plic­ity of time and move­ment of the tour­bil­lon with the las­sique Gran­des Com­pli­ca­tions 5367. Min­i­mal­is­tic and de­lib­er­ately pared down to es­sen­tials in or­der to give the mech­a­nism the full at­ten­tion it de­serves, the 5367 has no power-re­serve indi­ca­tor. Breguet has opted for a graphic hand-bev­elled tour­bil­lon bar, topped by a spinel. The blue hands strike a pow­er­ful con­trast with the stark white­ness of the tra­di­tional enamel, thereby en­sur­ing per­fect leg­i­bil­ity of the hours and min­utes. This dis­play lay­out is rem­i­nis­cent of the watches cre­ated by A.L. Breguet, who rev­elled in rev­o­lu­tion­is­ing the aes­thetic con­ven­tions gov­ern­ing the time­pieces of his era. The Clas­sique Tour­bil­lon Ex­tra-Plat Au­toma­tique 5367 mea­sures a mere 7.45 mm thick and its move­ment just 3 mm.

The new Clas­sique Tour­bil­lon Ex­tra-Plat Au­toma­tique 5367 with its “Grand Feu” enamel dial is avail­able in rose gold or plat­inum ver­sions, re­spec­tively fit­ted with a ma­hogany brown or blue al­li­ga­tor strap and both fea­tur­ing a rhodium-plated move­ment.
