Breguet Classique 9075

On the occasion of the Chinese New Year, Breguet is celebrating the Year of the Rabbit with an 8 pieces limited edition timepiece dedicated to women. This watch, from the Classique collection, showcases a combination of in-house artisanal techniques: the enamel and engraving expertise. The Breguet Classique 9075 – 2023 Chinese New Year Edition is an artistic interpretation adorned with 6 rabbits whose beauty gently manifests women’s sense of smartness and nimbleness.
“Rabbit” represents well wishes in China. It is one of the Chinese zodiac signs which is closely associated with symbols of playfulness and smartness. Breguet has drawn inspiration from the qualities of the rabbits and the manufacture’s artisans have combined it with sophisticated enamel craftsmanship and hand-engraving techniques which bring to life this lively, free-spirited creature in a new timepiece in the Classique Collection.
Vividly and exquisitely, the dial depicts a dynamic scene in which 6 rabbits are playing around the greens
against the backdrop of fluffy clouds. All the patterns are hand-engraved on an 18-carat white gold dial.
While the central motif is engraved below the surface of the enamel, rabbits are engraved on the enamel
and outlined at a maximum height. The engraving of gold applied in watchmaking is a bas-relief technique consisting in sculpting patterns in the extremely small dimensions of a watch. After sketching designs, the craftsman performs his demanding work using different engraving tools like chisels, while observing the component under the microscope. This is the most delicate step in the process of creation. This is followed by the cleaning and polishing of the work, which reveals its full splendour.
Beyond providing decoration to the dial, enamel work is a particularly specialised craft, one requiring rigour, patience, and technical mastery. After careful preparation, the enamel is applied on the dial in several layers and placed in an oven at 800℃. The translucent enamel and the opaque white enamel need to be applied in successive layers. The combination of 2 glazes at the same time increases the difficulty because imperfections must be avoided and each colour must remain homogeneous.
Therefore, the enamelled needs to master the knowledge of painting and colours of the enamel after firing, as well as how each colour changes at different temperatures so as to control the application and firing of successive layers and ensure none of the firings disturbs the layer are applied. Finally, the dial must remain at a well-defined final thickness, securing a delicate stage of sizing as well as height and aesthetic finishing of the dial. Nowadays, only a handful of Swiss artisans master this craft. The Manufacture Breguet Classique 9075 is fortunate to count on this expertise within its manufacture, located in the Vallée de Joux.
The Breguet Classique 9075 model combines traditional Haute Horlogerie refinement with aesthetic elegance. At its heart beats the hand-decorated self-winding 591C calibre. The movement is equipped with a silicon in-line Swiss lever escapement and a silicon flat balance spring. This movement, equipped with 171 components, beats at a frequency of 4 Hz and has a 38-hour power reserve. The case resistance is 3 bar (30m). As in Breguet tradition, the components of the calibre are all finished by hand, by the craftsmen of the Manufacture. The timepiece can also be admired from the back with its gold oscillating weight, delicately decorated with barleycorn patterns guilloche work.
At Breguet, artistic crafts are not merely a means of enhancing watchmaking mechanics. They are part of the DNA of the House, which has since 1775 consistently devoted equal importance to aesthetics, technique and innovation on the same level. Notably with Guillochage, which is a heritage that Breguet Classique 9075 has done more than merely preserve: some 30 guilloché lathes have been rebuilt within the Manufacture itself. While similar to the antique machines, they are endowed with the latest ergonomic, lighting, optical and precision equipments. The workshop thus is one of the most important in the entire watchmaking industry and its artisans are capable of executing a wide range of geometric patterns. With a view of constant development a research and creative department, notably responsible for developing new motifs, has been specially dedicated to this art form.

Breguet Tradition 7047 Fusée Tourbillon Platinum Blue

Breguet is one of the oldest names in watchmaking, having been established by Abraham-Louis Breguet in 1775 in Paris. This Swiss-born watchmaker extraordinaire delighted people such as Marie-Antoinette and inspired watchmakers and engineers such as John Arnold and a young Isambard Kingdom Brunel. An inventor at heart, Breguet Tradition 7047 designed some of the fundamental parts of watches today, but his most famous invention is the tourbillon. Designed to counteract the effects of gravity on the balance wheel of a pocket watch, the tourbillon has little practical use today in 2D form, but we still love to see it being made.
While other manufacturers went on to design more extravagant tourbillons that solved the issues of the original tourbillon design, Breguet today makes the complication in its classic format. You can find them in nearly all of Breguet’s product lines, although one of its most notorious appearances is in the Tradition range. It’s been there for 12 years and hasn’t had much work done, not that it needed it. The watch still features the calibre 569 with its 547 components. The titanium cage surrounding the surprisingly large 13mm balance wheel still makes for excellent viewing. The off-centre time dial provides another focal point while the fusée and chain move slowly underneath.
I’ve said before that, on occasion, larger Haute Horlogerie manufacturers make a watch that competes directly with indie watchmakers like Karin Voutilainen and MB&F. I think the Breguet Tradition 7047 has always been on their level, and this new one reminds us of that. The new watch hasn’t changed much. The case still measures 41mm x 15.95mm, thanks to all those clever inner workings, and it’s made from platinum. It also still has lots of polishing, thin welded lugs and a fluted caseband which are some of the hallmarks of Breguet’s designs.
The place with the most updates is the front. Breguet has been moving towards a blue theme in recent years, while the rest of the watch industry focuses on green as the next en vogue color. The small time dial is still covered in lots of lovely hand-applied Clous de Paris guilloché decoration with Breguet Tradition 7047 hands, although it’s now blue where before it was silver or black. The 17mm diameter tourbillon cage, inside which the escapement beats, is also blue. Most impressively, the solid links on the fusée and chain are now blue as well. I wish the power reserve hand were blue so it stood out, but hopefully, it’s easier to see in person. It’s not a deal-breaker anyway. These are all suspended over a delicately grained baseplate by titanium bridges.

Breguet Classique 7337

Breguet just announced a new version of one of its most traditional and recognizable dress watches, the Classique Calendrier 7337. Available in 18k white or rose gold and featuring slight aesthetic tweaks from the last time Breguet reworked the reference, in 2020, the overall appearance and technical specifications of the new model remain consistent with the model’s long-running history
The Breguet Classique 7337 has had a long life at Breguet. You can trace a direct lineage of the design all the way back to the early nineteenth century, when Abraham-Louis Breguet first started experimenting with off-centered displays to indicate the various complications on his top-of-the-line pocket watches. One reference in particular, No. 3833, a quarter-repeating pocket watch that was sold to a client named M. Thomas Hawley on May 12, 1823, and can be currently seen at the Breguet Museum in Paris, is considered the originator of the specific dial layout found on the current 7337 family.
In the modern era, the 7337 was officially reborn in the late 2000s, under the aegis of the late Swatch Group co-founder Nicolas G. Hayek, who served as Breguet CEO from 2001 until his death in 2010 and played a pivotal role in expanding the awareness of Breguet’s one-of-a-kind history. But the off-kilter dial architecture of the 7337 actually has an even earlier modern predecessor, dating back to a smaller-diameter model known as the Classique 3337, created during Daniel Roth’s tenure at Breguet in the 1980s.
The two new 7337 models don’t go out of their way to rewrite history, but they do contain a number of modest design updates that result in a sharper, more contemporary appearance. If you compare the 2020 release to those featured in today’s announcement, it’s easy to see that the date and day apertures have been given a stronger rectilinear cut-out that is bolder and more legible. The off-center time display – containing the hours, minutes, and small seconds – has been adjusted, featuring new positions for the Breguet wordmark and number (every Breguet watch is signed with its own individual reference number). The small seconds display has also been significantly simplified, now placed directly on the clous de Paris hobnail guilloché-decorated surface of the center dial and consisting only of a straightforward 60-second track with Arabic numerals marking every 15 seconds.
Outside a light rejiggering of the dial format, the new Breguet Classique 7337 is largely identical to its most recent predecessor. The outer dial area utilizes a barleycorn guilloché decoration, and the moonphase display remains in the traditional 12 o’clock position on the dial. The moon is crafted from hand-hammered gold, the clouds are sandblasted for contrasting texture, and the surrounding blue sky is coated in lacquer that glitters like starlight. Breguet calls on the self-winding caliber 502.3 QSE1 inside the Classique 7337, an ultra-thin movement that can be found in previous 7337 examples. Just 2.4mm in height, the slim caliber 502.3 QSE1 comes equipped with all the technical trappings you’d expect from a contemporary Breguet movement, including an off-center oscillating weight made of solid white gold, a silicon balance spring, and a unique escapement design utilizing an inverted straight-line pallet lever with silicon horns. All the action is visible through a sapphire crystal exhibition caseback, revealing rhodium-plated bridges, delicate chamfers, and traditional Geneva stripes. The case, of course, is quintessential Breguet, measuring a lithe 39mm × 9.95mm and equipped with the expected baroque flourishes of the fluted caseband and welded lugs with screwed spring bars. Available in 18K white gold or rose gold with a silver-tone dial, the latest Breguet 7337 has a list price of $43,000 in both metals.
We don’t talk about Breguet enough.

Sure, the newness of the Breguet Classique 7337 mostly surrounds a dial refresh, but I also think it’s fair to characterize the new Classique as one of the more charismatic and thoughtful dress watches released so far this year. Very few watchmakers are focusing on the formal category these days, but it’s an arena that Breguet has always specialized in.
It’s also hard not to be impressed by the total horological package that the Breguet Classique 7337 represents. The self-winding caliber 502.3 QSE1 isn’t a brand-new release whatsoever (in fact its architecture actually dates back to the 1970s), but its specifications put it nearly in a class of its own when compared to precious metal dress watches from other makers. Seriously, just take a look around – it’s both thinner and more advanced than the movements used in comparable watches, such as the caliber L086.1 inside the current A. Lange & Söhne Saxonia Automatic and the caliber 2450 Q6/3 inside the Vacheron Constantin Patrimony Self-Winding. The caliber 30-255 inside the new-gen Patek Philippe Calatrava ref. 6119 is mighty impressive, but it’s hand-wound, which makes a comparison to Breguet’s caliber 502.3 QSE1 like apples and oranges.

In fact, I wouldn’t hesitate to describe the BREGUET Classique 7337 as an endangered species. It feels like complicated precious-metal dress watches with high-grade, fully specced-out movements are harder to find right now than at any point in the past 30 years. Although I’ll admit I find the minuteness of total changes between the 2020 and 2022 iterations of the Classique 7337 to be a bit silly, I’m still happy to see Breguet experiment and iterate on the 7337 formula as often as it deems appropriate.

Breguet Classique Tourbillon Extra-Plat Anniversaire 5365

It was 220 years ago, in 1801, that horology pioneer Abraham-Louis Breguet received a patent for a device that would be influential in horology long after his passing. A device that, in the right conditions, can counter the effects of gravity on a watch’s balance wheel. He called his machine a tourbillon, which is French for a whirlwind. In a pocket watch, which was commonplace at the time as wristwatches hadn’t been invented yet, the balance wheel sat vertically in the watch when worn. Gravity was able to take effect on the tiny components of the escapement assembly, especially the balance wheel. Abraham-Louis Breguet’s tourbillon counteracted this.
Interestingly, the idea of the tourbillon was not one of Breguet’s own. It was thought of by Breguet’s close watchmaker friend, an Englishman named John Arnold, who had been toying with the idea for some time. Arnold, born in Devon in the UK, had been known as the greatest horologist of the time, but the works of Breguet thoroughly enamoured him after the Duke of Orleans introduced a Breguet Classique Tourbillon Extra-Plat Anniversaire 5365 clock to him in 1792. Breguet and Arnold would allow their sons to spend time learning the craft of horology from their counterparts. Arnold died before Breguet could patent the tourbillon, but Breguet himself attributed the idea to his late friend and even installed his first tourbillon into a watch made by Arnold, Pocket Watch No.11, which he gave to Arnold’s son. It now resides on display in the British Museum in London.
This past year, Breguet has been paying tribute to the tourbillon in subtle ways, but probably the best watch of all the releases is the new Classique Tourbillon Extra-Plat Anniversaire 5365. It’s based on an icon of the current collection, the Classique Tourbillon Extra-Plat, an extremely thin automatically-wound tourbillon dress watch. It used to be the thinnest until the Bulgari Octo Finissimo Tourbillon Automatic came along. Oh well, I think the Breguet has more class.

One thing Breguet has done away with from the classic Extra-Plat is the power reserve indicator. The idea is to attract your attention to the tourbillon and the guilloché decoration on the dial. Breguet, perhaps more than any other maker of fine wristwatches today, is known for its guilloché dials. Their quality is second to none, higher than small independents, I’d say. Their secret? A traditional rose lathe, the very same equipment used centuries ago, combined with intensive training for the operator. Granted, Breguet is not the only watchmaker doing this, and yet their dials always seem a cut above the rest.

This watch is no different. The central part of the dial uses a pattern called clous de Paris, otherwise known as hobnail. It’s lots of little pyramids cut to give a complex and yet clean finish. Outside the off-centred time display, a hallmark of Breguet design, is a guilloché pattern known as grain d’orge, or barley grain. There’s also a line of guilloché between the wide and narrow silver tracks, although I can’t remember if it has a specific name. Either way, the devil is definitely in the details, and there are loads to appreciate here. Above the tourbillon, which has been secured by a steel heat-blued bridge, unusual for Breguet but matching the blued Breguet hands, is a plate (called a cartouche) with ‘Brevet No. 157’ engraved onto it. This is a reference to the patent number awarded for the first tourbillon.
Powering this watch is the automatically-wound calibre 581. It’s ultra-thin, measuring at only 3mm altogether, although its construction around a central barrel gives it a power reserve of 80-hours. To make the watch this thin, Breguet mounted the rotor peripherally, meaning it orbits the entirety of the movement rather than being placed on top like a traditional automatic rotor would be.

That leaves plenty of room to view the movement’s engravings. In this case, you’re looking at engravings of Abraham-Louis Breguet’s original watercolour paste drawings of the tourbillon escapement. This movement is less ornamental than is traditional for Breguet in some ways. They haven’t engraved every surface of it like usual. Apart from the tourbillon engraving (which is cool), there’s little else but clean finishing, smooth bevels and some hand engraving. Just like on the classic Extra-Plat watches, you can see all the way through the tourbillon thanks to the movement’s design and the sapphire crystal caseback. The tourbillon itself is thoroughly modern, the balance wheel inside it beats at 4Hz, and it even uses a silicon balance spring and a lever escapement with silicon horns.
All of this is housed in a rose gold case that measures 41mm x 7mm. Before you all say “I wish it were 38mm”, this watch wears smaller thanks to its thinness and its relatively short straight lugs that slope downwards. You don’t need to be large in the wrist to pull one of these off.

Powering the Breguet Marine 5517 is the automatic caliber 777A, which is numbered and signed. The 18k- gold rotor is perhaps the most luxurious of the 179 components, and a stark contrast to the futurism of the silicon-horned pallet ticking away in the heart of the escapement.
The result, available on the 3-hand Marine 5517, the Marine Chronographe 5527 and the Marine Alarme Musicale 5547, is pleasant, as long as you accept having the name Breguet written on the dial of such a bold, sporty and powerful watch.
Now Breguet offers the Marine 5517, the Chronographe 5527, and the Alarme Musicale 5547 in rose or white gold with matching gold bracelets for a sportier look.

Breguet Classique 7337 and 7137

Perhaps the quintessential modern Breguet watches, having been in the line-up for decades, the Breguet Classique 7137 and Breguet Classique 7337 have elegant proportions and classical dials that showcase the exacting art of traditional engine-turning.

And they have just been face-lifted, retaining the traditional look while getting sleeker engine-turning and a streamlined moon phase. Though the changes are slight, the watches differ significantly in look and feel from the initial versions. breguet classique moonphase replica

Unusually, the new dial is also offered in dark blue (with a white gold case), historically an uncommon colour for Breguet. The other combination is the conventional rose gold with a silver dial. Both models feature a slim, 39 mm case with straight lugs and a reeded case band. Replica Breguet Classique Moon Phase Watch
Mechanically, they are identical to the earlier generation versions. The movements of both watches vary in height and calendar complications, but they share the same ultra-thin cal. 502.3 as the base.
The Classique 7337 in pink gold with a silver dial

Before going on to the details of the two, it’s worth a quick look at their history.

The two models are descended from the refs. 3137 and 3337 respectively, both watches designed by the independent watchmaker Daniel Roth when he helped create the modern Breguet identity in the late 1970s. Mr Roth, in turn, was inspired by important, 19th century Breguet pocket watches; he successfully translated Breguet’s glorious past into the modern era.

Being small watches by modern standards, the two were replaced by the Classique 7137 and Classique 7337 in 2014 and 2009 respectively.
Classique 7137
As with many Breguet wristwatches, the Classique 7137 features a dial that was adapted from a historically-important pocket watch – the Perpétuelle no. 5. One of Breguet’s rare self-winding watches, hence the “perpetual” moniker, the no. 5 featured a toc, or dumb, quarter repeater where the time is struck by a hammer against the inside of the case rather than on gongs, producing a muffled sound.

The Perpetuelle watches – there were a handful made – were important enough that the company recruited master watchmaker Michel Parmigiani to build a series of approximate replicas in the 1990s, and today Breguet itself produces an exact replica in limited numbers.
The Classique 7137 adopts the asymmetrical yet balanced dial of the Perpetuelle no. 5. Though not exactly identical, the Classique 7137 is close enough it is as classically beautiful as the pocket watch.
The Classique 7137 in white gold with a blue dial

The dial, made of solid gold, is finished with guilloche executed with a hand-operated rose engine as well as a straight-line engine, while the chapter rings and scales are finished with concentric brushing.

Just as on the first generation 7137, the dial guilloche is in three distinct patterns – panier maillé, or basket weave, for the power reserve indicator; damier, or checkerboard, for the date display; and clous de Paris, or hobnail, for the rest of the dial. But in contrast to the first generation that combined three starkly-different patterns, including a radial floral motif, the patterns on the new watch model blends together harmoniously.
Engined-turned dial with blued steel pomme hands and Breguet’s secret signature on either side of 12 o’clock

In addition to the revamped engine-turning, another major update is the moon phase display. It now features a lacquered disc inset with a solid gold moon that’s engraved to resemble the real lunar surface, replacing the traditional, man-in-the-moon motif of the first generation.

In terms of proportions and mechanics, the watch remains unchanged across generations. The case retains the same slim profile that’s just 8.65 mm high.
Inside is the ultra-thin cal. 502.3 DR1 movement, based on the cal. 502.3, itself derived from the Frederic Piguet calibre 70 introduced in 1970, and later known as the calibre 71.
While it has been substantially upgraded over the years to include a free-sprung balance as well as a silicon lever and hairspring, the cal. 502 still retains its distinctive architecture, namely an off-centre, solid-gold rotor that occupies three-quarters of the movement plate as well as an open barrel, all in the name of thinness.
Classique 7337
Like its sibling, the Classique 7337 was derived from an important, original Breguet pocket watch – the quarter-repeating watch no. 3833 featuring a calendar and moon phase. Notably, the no. 3833 was one of Breguet’s garde temps timepieces, built to be a precision chronometer.
The dial layout of the Classique 7337 is a faithful reproduction of the no. 3833, channeling the feel of the original without being an exact remake. The hour and minutes are indicated in a large sub-dial with an off-centered small seconds. At 12 o’clock is the moon phase, which is flanked by a day and date display.
The 7337 has received the same makeover as the 7137, again dispensing with the contrasting guilloche. The dial is finished with a trio of guilloche – grain d’orge, or barleycorn on the periphery; clous de Paris for the hours and minutes sub-dial; and damier for the seconds.

And like on the new 7137, the moon phase disc features a lacquered sky with a gold moon, instead of the moon with a face.
The Classique 7337 has a thickness of just 9.9 mm, with the cal. 502.3 QSE1 inside based on the same cal. 502.3.

Breguet Classique Moon Phase Watch

Creating a fine, classic design watch that is recognizable at first glance is not an easy task. This is what Breguet has achieved with its Classique collection, cultivating unmistakable signs that are as many hallmarks of the brand’s timepieces. In this respect, the new versions of the reference 7137 with their new dials – new patterns for the engine-turned motifs and the addition of a blue version – are Breguet through and through. Let’s take a closer look at them, in the metal. Breguet Classique Moon Phase Watch

The Breguet Classique 7137 is one of the finest examples of the brand’s enduring capacity to maintain an understated yet distinctive design. Inspired by a pocket watch from 1794 – the Breguet Perpetuelle N°5 – the reference was available in four different versions with silvered dials, in white and yellow gold. Two new references now join the family, refreshed with new handcrafted engined-turned “guilloché” dials. breguet classique moonphase 7137
The first of these new Classique 7137 Moon & Power Reserve is presented in pink gold with a silver-plated dial that bears all the distinctive hallmarks that make a Breguet unique. Elegant and highly legible, the guilloché dials, made from a solid gold plate, combine several patterns that make all essential indications clear and well organised. breguet classique moonphase replica
The off-centred subsidiary indications create a harmonious balance: a power reserve in an elegant fan-shaped display (basket-weave guilloché pattern); phases of the moon in a crescent-shaped opening, with a blue background and a gold insert for the Moon; and a circular sub-dial for the date (chequerboard pattern). These are framed by softly brushed metallic surfaces. The same concept applies for the chapter ring, featuring elegant Roman numerals, and a cartouche for the Breguet name and the watch’s individual number. The brand’s secret signature is engraved twice, framing the numeral at 12 o’clock. As you would expect, it is paired with blued ‘eccentric moon tip’ Breguet hands. All of this is handcrafted to a level that is rarely seen and one can only admire the work of Breguet’s craftsmen.
The second Breguet Classique 7137 Moon & Power Reserve translates this elegant design into a contemporary and unapologetically elegant white gold and blue dial combination, a new visual expression for the brand. The blue colour greatly contrasts with the silvered indications and this combination of cold shades – blue and silver – brings a new dimension to this watch. More casual, more modern, a bit bolder too but with the usual restraint you’d expect from Breguet. This version features silvered hands and moon – which has now a more modern realistic surface and not a “face” like the previous versions of the breguet classique 7137 replica.
Besides the dial, these new watches retain all the traditional features of the Reference 7137. The white or pink gold cases are 39mm in diameter with a slender profile of 8.65mm. The caseband is finely fluted, as with all Classique Breguet models. Elegant, rounded welded lugs with screw bars extend the case. A corrector allows you to adjust the moonphase indication. The watch is water-resistant to 30m. breguet moon phase watch
Turning the watch over, the engraved sapphire crystal caseback reveals the immaculately hand-finished automatic calibre 502.3. The hand-guilloché gold rotor is slightly off-centred, which is an original and nice touch. With 256 components and 35 jewels, it operates at a frequency of 3Hz and boasts 45 hours of power reserve. It is regulated by a free-sprung balance working in conjunction with a balance-spring and pallet horns in silicon. Displaying the hours, the minutes, the phases and the age of the Moon, the power reserve and the date, the movement is just 3.65mm thick.
The 2020 Breguet Classique 7137 Moon & Power Reserve is presented on a blue or brown alligator strap with folding buckle in the shape of the Breguet B logo. On the wrist, the watch is supremely elegant. Surprisingly, it is understated but asserts a distinctive personality at the same time. Last but not least, it is superbly crafted: perfection is in the details and the 7137 impresses in every aspect.
The Breguet Classique Power Reserve 7137 collection of watches isn’t new, but I’ve never really covered these lovely watches before, so I figured I should at some point. One thing I am trying to do more of on aBlogtoWatch is cover modern watches that are perhaps not brand new, but are still available for retail sale and are worth taking note of. The Breguet Classique Power Reserve 7137 certainly falls into that category.
In many ways, a watch like the Breguet Classique Power Reserve 7137 epitomizes what the Breguet watch brand is all about. The Classique case has a coined-edge side and simple lugs along with a lovely machine guilloche engraved dial. Those familiar with antique Breguet pocket watch dials will see the familiar layout and design of complications such as the moon phase indicator and power reserve indicator. It matches Breguet’s long-standing mastery of asymmetric (along with symmetrical), albeit balanced, dials.
At 39mm wide, the Breguet Classique Power Reserve 7137 isn’t a large watch, but given its dress watch style, I would not call it small either. The thin bezel makes it very wearable, and unlike many 39mm wide watches, it does not feel small as measured against contemporary tastes. I would gladly wear it on a regular basis given the mixture of size, boldness, and overall legibility. It is worth noting that the Breguet 7137 is actually an evolved and enlarged version of the older Breguet 3137.

Both the Breguet 7137 and 3137 are “Classique Power Reserve” models with the same complications, but each has a slightly different dial design and case size. Whereas the more modern 7137 is 39mm wide, the 3137 is 36.3mm wide – a size that was more common when it was introduced in the 1990s, or even earlier when the modern Breguet was very much a product of Daniel Roth’s work there. In some ways, the 3137 has a more elegant dial, but it is not as intricate as the 7137 when it comes to design. People will likely choose between the two watches based on the size of timepiece they like to wear.
Watches in Breguet’s Classique collection are masterful executions of finely conceived machine guilloche engraved dials. Breguet wants you to know that these aren’t automated machines, but rather hand-operated rose engines that are more like tools which only produce beautiful results when used by skilled craftsman. As is the case on many models, the dial features various aesthetic styles that work together marvelously. More guilloche engraving can be found on the surface of the automatic rotor, which is visible through the sapphire crystal caseback on the rear of the watch.
The dial of the Breguet Classique Power Reserve 7137 watch has the time, moon phase indicator, power reserve indicator, and date dial. There is no running seconds hand, which is not an issue for me. The information on the dial is useful and emotional (the moon phase indicator). Everything is rendered so beautifully, and the pomme-style hour and minute hands are easily visually distinguished from the power reserve or date hands.

Inside the 7137 collection of watches is the in-house made Breguet caliber 502.3 DR1 automatic movement. The movement has a power reserve of 45 hours and is thin enough that the entire watch case is just 8.65mm thick. If you look at the rear of the watch, you’ll notice that the automatic rotor is off-centered a bit, even though it is too large to be considered a micro-rotor.

Breguet Tourbillon New Watch

The new Classique Double Tourbillon Quai de l’Horloge model houses a monumental movement in the proportions of a watch. Working with very limited space, the Breguet Manufacture has built a complex and harmonious universe that seemingly defies the laws of physics. Like a delicately chased sculpture, the entire exposed mechanism pivots around its axis at the rate of one full turn every 12 hours. It is propelled by two independent tourbillons, which each complete a full rotation per minute.

The expertise of the art of watchmaking is never without aesthetic virtuosity at Replica Breguet. Each component is hand-finished, while the back of the movement is engraved with the “House on the Quai”, the Parisian building where Abraham-Louis Breguet fulfilled his life’s work. Stylised and rounded, the barrel bridges in steel take on the form of the letter B. All the components are meticulously straight-grained, chamfered, and even satin-brushed by hand. A true signature of the House, the hand-engraving on a rose engine (guilloché work) finds a new field of expression on the movement. Laid bare as it is, the caliber exposes the inner flank of the caseband, from which the hand-engraved Roman numerals stand out echoing in their design those of the sapphire hours chapter.


Classique “Grande Complication” wristwatch in 950 platinum, with twin rotating tourbillons. Two independent tourbillons affixed by a bridge to a centre plate completing a rotation in 12 hours. Balance springs with Breguet overcoil. Manually engraved hand-wound movement. Chapter ring with Roman numerals on a sapphire disc and centre plate hand-engraved on a rose engine. Sapphire caseback. Diameter : 46 mm. Strap with “stone” coating on rubber with triple blade folding clasp.

2020 Replica Breguet Tradition 7597 Collection

The Breguet Tradition collection takes its inspiration from one of the most significant pieces of Breguet’s history: the subscription watch. Purposefully simple and stripped-back, its fully visible movement unveils a perfectly symmetrical design. In the new Breguet Tradition Quantième Rétrograde 7597 model, it also features a retrograde date display, a complication that the watchmaker was one of the first to develop, and which it has bestowed on some of its most famous creations. Tradition Quantième Rétrograde 7597

This novelty features an hours chapter with Roman numerals, bordered by a delicate engine-turned Clous de Paris pattern, which serves as a backdrop for blued Breguet hands. In the interests of balance, a retrograde date section is positioned between the 3 o’clock and 9 o’clock and a skillfully curved hand indicates the date moving in the vertical plane, fitting in with the ultra-architectural movement. A patented mechanism provides for a fine adjustment of the date hand. The latter is multi-tiered, allowing it to fly over the movement components. At 10 o’clock, a screw-in corrector allows users to set the date safely.
