Why We Love it

Breguet makes the best dials in the biz. Yeah, we said it.

Their signature engine-turned dials, individually numbered and hand-finished, are simply beautiful works of art. 

This Breguet Réveil Du Tsar Classique Alarm isn’t just the proud recipient of an excellent hand-finished guilloché dial, however — it’s also a complicated masterwork, displaying the time in two separate time zones, and includes a mechanical alarm function. The second timezone is indicated by way of a 24-hour subsidiary dial, while the alarm function also utilizes a separate subsidiary dial to indicate the set alarm time. The dial also features an alarm 'on/off' indicator in an aperature directly below the Breguet signature, a power reserve display which lives between 10 o'clock and 12 o'clock, and a constant running seconds and date window at 6 o’clock. Printed Roman hour indices live on a silvered outer track, and five different styles of engine-turned finishes are utilized throughout for texture. All of this lives within the confines of an 18k yellow gold 39mm case without appearing cluttered or messy - this is the Breguet way!

The case features Breguet's signature coin-edge flanks, twin signed crowns, an on/off alarm activator at 8 o’clock and straight lugs with screwed-in pin bars secure ithe watch to its includeded signed black alligator leather strap with matching 18k yellow gold deployant buckle.  Powered by the self-winding Calibre 519f movement developed in collaboration with Blancpain, this elegant timepiece packs an incredible, high complication punch.

Have a look at it.

Have a listen to its beautiful alarm tone.

Then you'll have to have it!

 

Brand Story

+
Few companies are so steeped in history that their name has become a byword for a particular type of product or style. Breguet is one such company: Their famously elegant numerical typeface and matching handset is now de rigueur amongst the most sophisticated dress watches, from Patek Philippe to Longines to, of course, Breguet itself.

However, these numerals and hands are but a single innovation in a long list of horological firsts devised by master watchmaker and inventor Abraham-Louis Breguet (1747-1823), a Neuchatel-born savant whose Parisian career saw the advent of myriad watchmaking creations that we take for granted today. Indeed, it was Breguet who devised the first self-winding watches, as well as the first gongs for repeating watches and the tourbillon. Not many inventors can claim the king and queen of France as patrons, but indeed King Louis XVI and his bride Marie Antoinette were amongst his admirers.

20th-century Breguet is no less storied: The company’s Type 20 pilot’s chronograph issued to the French Aéronautique Militaire in the 1950s provided a benchmark for military watch design. Its stark black dial and utilitarian look belied the sophisticated retour en vol (“flyback”) mechanism within the movement, which allowed a pilot to stop, reset and start the chronograph by depressing the bottom pusher just once.

More recently, under the current management of Mark A. Hayek, modern Breguet has continued to register new patents and amass a dedicated following. The brand’s “Classique” dress watches from the 1990s and 2000s, for example, feature some of the most striking dials in modern watchmaking, making use of guilloché patterns, blue steeled hands and Roman numerals. While the company’s contemporary offerings continue to increase in sophistication and the number of complications available, it’s surely these simple, gorgeous time-only models that best encapsulate the elegant timepieces of A.L. Breguet himself.
