Breguet has unveiled the Blue Version of its Classique Tourbillon Extra-Plat Automatique. For 2020, Breguet adorns the dial of its Extra-Thin Self-Winding Tourbillon with a touch of deep blue through using the traditional grand feu enamel technique. This stunning timepiece is limited edition and in the UK it is only available at their store on Bond Street.
Founder Abraham-Louis Bregeut revolutionised watchmaking aesthetics by ridding watches of heavy and superfluous decoration. There are a limited number of artisans that are still capable of mastering this age-old process, one that was dear to Abraham-Louis Bregeut, as he appreciated the spotless aspect it conferred on watches. Today, Breguet keeps this art alive with a workshop entirely dedicated to enamelling.
Under the dial lies the beating heart of the watch, with its minimalist design - the 581 caliber, which distinguishes itself through its finesse and technical performance. Breguet’s thinnest tourbillon movement showcased within this timepiece is no thicker than 3 millimeters, with the total case thickness measuring 7.45 millimeters. In addition, this exclusive new release is in platinum and features a luxurious blue alligator leather strap.
