Breguet shows off two clas­si­cal vari­ants from the Clas­sique col­lec­tion that Breguet says it ex­em­pli­fies its watch­mak­ing ideals of pre­ci­sion, clar­ity and el­e­gant lines. Whether in ex­tra-thin mod­els or com­pli­cated watches, they are all true to the tech­ni­cal prin­ci­ples, the artistry and the tra­di­tional val­ues of a Breguet watch.

Breguet Clas­sique 5177

En­cased in 18K rose gold with del­i­cately fluted case­band, this Breguet Clas­sique with Ref. 5177BR/29/9V6 uses a sapphire crystal case­back ex­pos­ing its ex­quis­ite move­ment. It has a de­light­fully clean “gran feu” enamel dial comes signed with the tra­di­tional Breguet logo and taste­ful vari­a­tion to the clas­si­cal fea­tures of the col­lec­tion.

The hour chap­ter is de­signed with Ara­bic nu­mer­als and comes with a cen­ter sec­onds hand and a unique trape­zoidal date aper­ture at the 3 o’clock po­si­tion. Its open­tipped Breguet hands in blue steel fur­ther adds to its clas­si­cal and tra­di­tional el­e­gance. The leather strap is held by welded lugs se­cured with screw bars, this 38 mm di­am­e­ter watch is wa­ter-re­sis­tant up to 3 bar (about 30 me­ters).

The 26 jewel Cal­i­bre 777Q self­wind­ing move­ment is num­bered and signed Breguet and has a 55-hour power re­serve. Driven by an18K gold os­cil­lat­ing weight and is hand-en­graved on a rose en­gine. Stop sec­onds. 12 lignes. 26 jew­els. Cal. 777Q. Like in most new Breguet move­ments, its es­cape wheel and lever are now made with sil­i­con.

This clas­sic ladies’ Breguet Clas­sique Phase De Lune Dame 9087 with Ref. 9087BR/29/964 is en­cased in 18- carat 30mm di­am­e­ter rose gold case and also with a del­i­cately fluted case­band and welded lugs with screw bars that is also wa­ter-re­sis­tant to 3 bar (30me­ters).

Just like the Clas­sique 5177, the dial in­di­vid­u­ally num­bered and signed Breguet with its hours chap­ter marked with Ro­man nu­mer­als. The moon-age and -phase in­di­ca­tor fit­ted well with the small sec­onds at 6 o’clock, al­low­ing a very clean and or­ga­nized fa­cial lay­out. It also uses Breguet open-tipped hands in blued steel.
