As traditional as it is innovative, Breguet's Tradition is a visionary model that has now entered the very exclusive circle of iconic Fine Watchmaking creations. Three new versions of this timepiece, which has a 40 mm-diameter case middle, are being introduced in 2011. One has an 18-carat red gold case and a 507DR calibre with red gold-plated finish, the other two have an 18-carat white gold or red gold case housing a movement with a matt grey NAC finish. This type of surface treatment deposits a charcoal-grey alloy of precious metals from the platinum family by electroplating. Each of these three versions highlights in its own way – whether ultra-modern or more tradition – the technical architecture of this masterpiece of micromechanics; in fact, its construction is unique, as the arrangement on both sides of the central plate shows off almost all of the components – bridges, gears, escapement and the famous “old fashioned” pare-chute shock absorber in hand-bevelled steel.
Breguet’s archives, kept in Switzerland and in Paris, record the developments that have sustained Breguet watchmaking for more than two centuries. The firm is committed to remaining ahead of its time with a flow of inventions and improvements.Find out more >
