Why We Love it

Breguet’s timepieces are more than simple wristwatches — they’re works of art.

Take the Tradition series, for example. Introduced in 2015, they feature the going train of the firm’s 19th-century souscription watches paired to an automatic winding system. When combined with the traditional, engine-turned Breguet dial and an exposed movement, they make for stunningly beautiful contemporary pieces that bridge the best in vintage aesthetics with the utmost in contemporary timekeeping technology. (Sourscription watches were pocket watches that were sold on a subscription basis — the buyer would put down 25%, with the rest due upon delivery.) 

This particular Tradition Reference 7037 from the 2000s features a 38mm yellow gold, coin-edged case, a sapphire crystal, a signed crown, and a beautiful, off-centered, silver engine-turned dial with Roman indices and a matching blued-steel Breguet handset. Other unique features include a retrograde seconds hand and a “frosted” guilloché, skeletonized yellow gold movement visible both via the dial and an exhibition case back. Powered by the Breguet Calibre 505SR automatic movement with 50-hour power reserve, it comes fitted to a brown leather strap with a matching signed yellow gold pin buckle.

This Breguet is truly a connoisseur's watch — though anyone can appreciate its exquisite beauty.

Overall Condition

The case is in excellent condition showing normal signs of wear consistent with age and use. Multi-tone floating guilloche dial with printed 'Roman' indices is in as-new condition with matching blued-steel 'Breguet' handset. Signed crown. Sapphire exhibition caseback.

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.
