Breguet - Tradition 7047

Breguet Tradition 7047

Tradition in movement.

GMT- Printemps-Eté 2010Red.

It is common knowledge among connoisseurs that Breguet has always been in the technological vanguard when it comes to the balance-spring. This central piece of the movement underwent a major innovation in 2006 when Breguet introduced the first watches equipped with a balance-spring and escapement in silicon. This sophisticated material, which is completely impervious to magnetic fields and far lighter than metal, is now making its appearance in the Tradition 7047 model with tourbillon and fusée and chain transmission. Its balance-spring represents a major watch industry accomplishment due to the extremely complex construction of the famous Breguet overcoil balance-spring. Inspired by the architecture of the first tourbillon pocket-watches from the House, this platinum model unveils some of the secrets of its movement coated with a special dark grey coloured metal alloy. The result is a resolutely high-tech watch that paves the way for some exciting development prospects.
