WHY THIS WATCH



MasterClass in Subtlety & Old School Watchmaking 

 

Breguet is a brand that you really have to look at in a closer and deeper way to appreciate. This watch is a perfect example. At first glance this is a simple, time-only dress watch with a plain dial. What's so remarkable about this watch to justify the $21,000 retail price?  

 

It's All about the Dial 

 

The dial here is a perfect example of Breguet's approach to watchmaking. This dial is a Grand Feu "Great Fire" Enamel. The way this dial is made is an extremely time-consuming process in which layers of enamel are added to the dial, which then gets heated in a fire to cast the layers in the place. The base layer alone can contain up to 8 layers. If one mistake is made, the enamel can crack and the entire dial must be thrown out. Are the results worth it? Yes, they are, and you gotta see an enamel dial in person to appreciate it. The dial on this watch can be described as "Whiter than White" or "Pure White". It's just something special that you can't get any other way. Also, enamel never loses it's luster. Just take a look at the catalogs of vintage watches with enamel dials to see how well this type of dial ages. 

 

Take a look at the subdial on this watch, and notice how it sinks effortlessly, with no transition edge. I have no idea how this was done. The aforementioned dial is the perfect backdrop for those gorgeous blued hands and hand painted black Breguet numerals. 

  

Slim Case

 

The first thing you notice when strapping this on, besides the standout dial, is how slim this watch is. At only 6.5mm thick, this watch is very thin and comfortable despite being 40mm. You also have a cool fluted middle section that adds some contrast to the case.

 

Calibre 502.35D

 

Breguet certainly isn't a slouch when it comes to movements. This watch is powered by the Calibre 502.35D, which is an ultra slim automatic movement with a 45 Hour Power Reserve. Flipping the watch over you'll notice the movement is beautifully decorated with beveled bridges, Guilloche, Cotes de Geneve, and polished wheels/screws. While this movement is not going to win any awards for innovation, it's a very finely finished and slim movement that's going to provide reliable timekeeping. 

  

Wrist Impressions

 

This watch has such a simple and elegant look and feel. It's truly a dress watch par excellence. What I love most about this dial besides the enamel is it's legibility. There's no sub-dials (other than the offset seconds) to block your view of the hour and minute hands. Also, the wood on the box is really outstanding, and was a nice surprise.

THE LITTLE DETAILS
