Live from Time to Move: Breguet Novelties with quick impressions and live pics

Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr +

Breguet’s big novelty this year is the new Classique Tourbillon Squelette 5935. Ultra thin caliber 581 automatic movement with peripheral rotor has about 50% of the mass removed in the skeletonising process. The case in RG, 41mm.

Next the range of the Reine de Naples is extended with two new additions. One with a blue laquer dial in a deep-blue lacquer with turquoise blue scrolls. Its surface is reminiscent of a starry sky. To achieve this effect, the artisan would place a touch of clear lacquer on still-liquid dark material. When combined in this manner, the colors mix spontaneously to form a unique painting.

And another Reine de Naples in a silvered gold dial and a hand guilloche hour minute subdial.

Next the evergreen Classique 5177, now with a blue grand feu enamel dial. In a 38mm white gold case with the Caliber 777Q automatic movement.
