A VIN­TAGE CLAS­SIC

Marwar - - Travel -

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.
