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.

The Breguet Classique Complications Tourbillon isn’t merely the proud recipient of an excellent Breguet dial, however — it’s also a masterful blend of complicated simplicity. The majority of the dial features Breguet’s signature guilloche finish with a subsidiary dial denoting the hour and minutes, while the lower portion features an incredible tourbillon display.

Simply refined on the top; a complicated dance party on the bottom. 

Dating to the 2010s and housed in a 36mm 18K white gold, coin-edge case with a sapphire crystal, a signed crown, and a polished bezel, it features a white Clous de Paris and a brushed silver dial with painted black ‘Roman’ indices, a blued-steel Breguet handset, and a mesmerizing tourbillon rotating cage positioned at 6 o'clock. Well balanced and absolutely beautiful, it’s an ideal example of brilliant watchmaking.

The manual-winding Breguet Calibre 558.1 is a work of art, displaying an array of beautiful engravings throughout its base plate which can be easily admired thanks to its sapphire exhibition caseback.

Stunning to behold and perfectly sized, this Breguet Classique Complications Tourbillon is stuff horological dreams are made of. 

Once you try it on, you’ll instantly understand what we mean!

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.
