Technical Aesthetics: Breguet Tradition
A revealing insight into the interesting and complex mechanics of a wristwatch is rarely visualized on both sides. Under the sapphire crystal cover and back, the movement with manual or automatic winding is shown to its best advantage. High-carat oscillating weight and distinctive materials radiate a harmonious appearance, promise high wearing comfort and longevity. These include platinum, fine gold in white and rosé for a round, ribbed case and a hand-guilloched dial with Roman numerals. A Breguet tradition comes with special shock protection, 50-55 hours power reserve and water resistance up to 30 metres. It has a signature and documented numbering. The corrugated crown is decorated with a curved B logo.
Watch of the Kings & Emperors
Elite personalities such as Queen Marie Antoinette of France and Napoleon appreciated the advantages of a Breguet watch. The history of the company began in Paris in 1775 with the masterly genius Abraham-Louis Breguet. His single-handed watch and other inventions worthy of a museum revolutionised watchmaking. Introduced in 2005, the Tradition series spans a nostalgic arc from the past to the present. Similar to the single-handed watches, the exalted dial of a tradition is reduced to essentials. The fine art of watchmaking requires skill, sensitivity and creativity. Breguet draws aesthetic parallels between his timepieces and supports projects in ballet, music and theatre. Breguet has been part of the Swiss Swatch Group since 1999.
Breguet brand - an investment of value and an object of desire
The description of a Breguet luxury watch is hardly conceivable without superlatives. This technical marvel consists of up to 542 individual parts that keep various functions going: Sub dials, small retrograde seconds, second time zone display, day and night indicator, power reserve indicator, chronograph functions. The elegant Breguet blued steel hands with pierced ring tip match the filigree small parts. Characteristic features are welded strap lugs, screwed-in bars and alligator leather strap in black, blue, brown or white. Each model number is available in sub-variations. The exclusive 37 mm tradition in delicate rose gold with natural mother-of-pearl dial, Arabic indication and diamond bezel flatters the lady.
