With a lot of big announcements and great new product being unveiled here at Baselworld, it is nice to see that some brands still offer classic elegance. Such is the case with Breguet, which introduces its Classique Tourbillion Extra-Plat Automatique 5367 watch now with a Grand Feu enamel dial.
With a simply elegant interpretation of the tourbillon against a minimalist dal, this long-awaited addition to the Grandes Complications collection features a striking, white enamel dial with classic blued Breguet hands, and a chapter ring with Breguet Arabic numerals. The simplistic dial has been deliberately pared down to the essentials, to give the tourbillion the full attention it deserves.
This Breguet Classique Tourbillion Extra-Plat Automatique watch is intricately finished, with the bridges, barrel and oscillating weight all hand engraved. The oscillating weight is a peripheral rotor that is crafted in platinum. The watch is incredibly thin at 7.45mm thick (with the movement measuring 3mm). Caliber 581 is equipped with a patented high-energy barrel with more spring coils. While this understated timepiece, has no power reserve indicator, it does in fact, maintain 80 hours of power reserve. The 42 mm watch is crafted in 18-karat rose gold with a mahogany brown strap, or in platinum with a blue alligator strap.
