We have covered some of the best models from the Breguet Classique collection below.
The Classique 7147 is one of those iconic models, filled with a combination of classicism and tradition that only Breguet can create. It is marked by all the delicate elements that have contributed to the Manufacturer’s personality since 1775. The dial of this new invention, like many ancient models, is fashioned of “Grand Feu” enamel, a superb example of aesthetic workmanship.
Traditional blued steel Breguet hands with an offset open tip show the hours and minutes, while little seconds swirl quietly around a 5 o’clock subdial. The elegance of this Classique 7147 is mirrored in its movement, which is visible via a sapphire transparent caseback and adorned with “Côtes de Genève” and “Clous de Paris” hobnailing.
This model is available in white gold and powered by Caliber 502.3SD, which includes a silicon balance spring and an inverted in-line lever escapement with silicon horns, an incredibly light material recognized for its non-magnetic qualities. It gives the Classique 7147 exceptional performance and dependability.
The Classique 7337 is simple yet attractive, channeling the look of antique pocket watches designed by Abraham-Louis Breguet and his son. In 1786, the watchmaker brought the practice of engine-turning to watchmaking codes, improving their readability.
The dial of the Classique 7337 is embellished with intricate patterns, circular grain d’orge barley grain for the hours chapter’s corners, damier checkerboard for the little seconds, and Clous de Paris hobnailing in the middle. The moon-phase indicator’s engraved clouds surrounding the lacquered sky, speckled with sparkles, are reminiscent of the Milky Way.
The sapphire crystal of the Classique 7337 reveals the extra-thin 502.3 automatic caliber. With an open barrel and an offset rotor, this movement has decreased thickness. This unique design distinguishes the barrel spring, which would otherwise be buried. Following current technical development, the use of a silicon balancing spring continues Abraham-Louis Breguet’s quest for perfection on a modern level.
The Classique 8068 model combines classic elegance with a distinctive Breguet touch and high-quality mechanisms. The natural mother-of-pearl dial features a filigree Clous de Paris guilloche and is bordered by a diamond-studded bezel with Roman numerals. The sapphire cabochon on the crown reflects the blue of the Breguet hands.
This model is available in two colors; white gold (8068BB) or rose gold (8068BR). It has a diameter of 30 millimetres and a slim overall height of 7.77 millimetres. It ticks to the rhythm of the automatic caliber 537/3 with a silicon hairspring for high precision.
