Breguet Classique Grande Complication Tourbillon – Baselworld 2014
Breguet will release the Classique Tourbillion Extra-Thin Automatic platinum timepiece. It is one of the thinnest tourbillion watches in the world. It is automatic, an off-center tourbillion has a titanium cage, silicon balance spring and other components that are made in “anti-magnetic steel”. An ideal dress watch that is chic, sleek, comfortable and has the anti-magnetic properties that modern times demand.
The Breguet caliber 581DR movement measures just 3mm in height and the platinum thick hand-made guilloche dial, measures a total of just 7mm in height and 42mm in diameter. It has a 18k gold dial with silvered and engine-turned in four different patterns (hobnail pattern for the hours/minutes chapter, barleycorn surround, a straight chevron pattern for the power reserve indicator at 8:30 and a cross-hatching to outline each feature).
The rose gold counterpart was released last year.
