The Classique Phase de Lune Dame 9088, to be unveiled by Breguet at Baselworld 2016, is a classic ladies’ timepiece adorned with one of the most poetic complications in watchmaking: the moon phase.
With its Classique Phase de Lune Dame 9088, Breguet enhances its collection of timepieces for women with a watch of timeless elegance. Its pure lines faithfully reproduce the hallmarks that have ensured the success of the House for over 240 years. Both discreet and remarkable, this white-gold watch, measuring 30 mm in diameter, features exquisitely fluted sides and a dial in white ‘grand feu’ enamel.
The latter is adorned with Arabic numerals, also known as ‘Breguet numerals’ in reference to the founder of the House, who designed them in 1783. The minutes track, made up of tiny stars, together with stylised fleurs-de-lys for the five-minute fractions pay tributes to the Breguet watchmaking tradition. The blued-steel hours and minutes hands of this Classique Phase de Lune Dame are inspired by the famous open tipped Breguet hands also invented in 1783. Here, they have been redesigned and complement the enamel dial perfectly. The display of information is completed by a small-seconds hand and moon-phase aperture at 6 o’clock.
The Classique Phase de Lune Dame houses the Breguet 537L calibre, a self-winding mechanical movement equipped with a silicon escapement and spiral. As is customary, Breguet once again devotes its technical developments and watchmaking expertise to women. Visible through a sapphire crystal case back, the movement of this timepiece reveals a range of finishes that reflect the highest Haute Horlogerie tradition. ‘Côtes de Genève’ decorative ribbing graces the bridges, while the gold oscillating weight is adorned with ‘barley grain’ engine turning.
