 This year again, Breguet enthusiasts and connoisseurs will have an opportunity to appreciate the make’s unique qualities and attributes. Delicate engine-turned “guilloché” work, the famed blued-steel BREGUET watch hands with hollowed-out “apple” tip, introduced in 1783, stylish fluting on the caseband – all unmistakable features found on the new entries presented at Basle.Complex timepieces are also on hand, not least a 200-watch limited series of an outstanding achievement marking the 200th anniversary of the introduction of the Tourbillon. This commemorative design from the CLASSIQUE line should delight even the brand’s most demanding admirers with a coverlid displaying meticulous hand “guilloché” work and inscribed with the word “Tourbillon”, a transparent sapphire case back and its Tourbillon carriage at 6 o’clock. The engraved historical inscription “Brevet du 7 Messidor An 9” adds further character to this rare, individually numbered Breguet creation.The Breguet models introduced this year each embody to perfection the company’s perspectives: renewed emphasis on product elegance and refinement, total respect for the brand’s founding values, access to the finest and most exacting technical skills and expertise available today.
