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. You’d be hard-pressed to find such fine attention to detail in a watch costing many times what, say, a time-only or time-and-date model from the brand’s Classique line trades for. 

Take this particular Classique, for example: A Reference 5187, it’s a Regulator model, meaning its hour and minute functions are separated on the dial like those of master timing clocks of the 18th and 19th century. Housed in a 35mm yellow gold case with a coin edge, a sapphire crystal, a signed crown, an exhibition caseback, and a polished bezel, it features an incredible ‘clous de Paris’ and checkerboard guilloché dial with an hour sub-dial at 12:00, an outer minute track, a blued Breguet-style handset, and a date window at 6:00. 

Powered by the automatic Breguet Calibre 591 QSHD with 38 hours of power reserve, it comes paired to a brown alligator leather strap with an 18K yellow gold pin buckle. Well balanced, highly detailed, and utterly captivating, this dressy timepiece is a perfect example of the savoir faire that has made the Breguet maison a legendary name in watchmaking for over 200 years.

We know you’ll love it as much as we do!

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.
