Breguet Classique 7147

Unveiled at Baselworld 2017, the new Classique 7147, like many classic and historic models produced by Breguet, proudly houses an elegant dial made using an extremely complex ornamental technique named Grand-Feu enameling, a traditional artistic craft known since ancient times. This multi-stage, traditional technique, mastered by the watch making house, offers the dial radiant whiteness and glowing texture. On the enamel dial, the famous slender, dainty yet legible Breguet numerals are placed, as a tribute to early watches and clocks from the House. Hours and minutes are indicated by traditional blued steel Breguet hands with an offset open tip, complemented by the small seconds discreetly sweeping around a 5 o’clock subdial.
Inside the Classique 7147 timepiece beats the Calibre 502.3SD, which is visible through a sapphire crystal case back and graced with “Côtes de Genève” and “Clous de Paris” hobnailing. This high performance and reliable self-winding movement is equipped with a balance spring in silicon and an inverted in-line lever escapement with horns made of silicon.
Paired with an alligator leather strap featuring gold pin buckle, the Classique 7147 is available in rose gold and white gold versions.
