MINIMALIST CHIC

Marwar - - Special Feature -

With its minimalist dial, the Clas­sique Tour­bil­lon Ex­tra-Plat Au­toma­tique gives brand Breguet’s great­est in­ven­tion, the tour­bil­lion, a promi­nently beau­ti­ful in­ter­pre­ta­tion. The very first num­ber from the iconic watch­maker’s Gran­des Com­pli­ca­tions col­lec­tion to be graced with a “Grand Feu” enamel dial, the Clas­sique Tour­bil­lon Ex­tra-Plat Au­toma­tique stands out for its highly vis­i­ble tour­bil­lion, thanks to the graphic hand-bev­elled tour­bil­lon bar, topped by a spinel that has been used to fur­ther its at­ten­tion-draw­ing ca­pa­bil­ity and ap­peal. Hark­ing back to the times of the brand’s iconic founder A -L Breguet, who rev­elled in rein­ter­pret­ing the tra­di­tional watch-mak­ing aes­thetic con­ven­tions of his time, the Clas­sique Tour­bil­lon Ex­tra-Plat Au­toma­tique fea­tures an off-cen­tred chap­ter ring with Ara­bic nu­mer­als, while tra­di­tional blue Breguet hands strik­ingly con­trast with the pris­tine white­ness of the dial.

Among the watch’s other note­wor­thy at­tributes in­clude a sleek rose gold case, dec­o­ra­tively hand-en­graved bridges, bar­rel and os­cil­lat­ing weight, the Cal­i­bre 581 and an 80-hour power re­serve, which has been made pos­si­ble by means of a “high-en­ergy” bar­rel. The model is avail­able in rose gold and plat­inum ver­sions.
