Breguet Héritage Grande Date 5410

The Héritage line by Breguet gives a 21st century twist to a classic repertoire. Curved along two axes in a “tonneau” or barrel shape ensuring a perfect fit on the wrist, Héritage timepieces are the epitome of technical mastery. This year, Breguet sought out to broaden the range of complications with the Héritage Grande Date 5410 model. The keenly appreciated date indication enthroned at 12 o’clock enlivens a finely crafted silvered gold face reflecting the double curvature of the case.

Delicate engine-turned motifs create a wealth of structural and depth effects that both highlight and delineate the other functions of the model and thus ensure enhanced legibility. The chapter ring, bearing large transferred Roman numerals coated with a luminescent substance, surrounds the minute scale. These indications are complemented by a small seconds subdial at 6 o’clock.
The new Héritage Grande Date 5410 model houses Calibre 5166, a movement endowed with the technological innovations in the field of materials achieved by Breguet over the past years. A silicon balance-spring notably enhances the model’s performance, endowing it with exceptional precision and reliability.
Clothed in 18-carat rose or white gold, the 45 x 32 mm Héritage Grande Date 5410 timepiece rounds out the collection composed of both men’s and ladies’ models. The large date thus joins existing complications such as a chronograph, a tourbillon and a retrograde moon phase.
