Breguet’s range, which debuted at their factory site in Vallee de Joux, 30 miles north of Geneva, as something in the Swatch group’s Time to Move show, combines advanced technologies with sophisticated elegance. Breguet watches are among the most competitive and expensive in the world, so this degree of luxury is not easy to attain. Take note, if a Breguet watch charges less than $20,000, it is most likely a forgery, a fake one. And who cares, maybe you’ll form a relationship with one model and end up purchasing it, or even better, you’ll choose a unique run and impress your buddies or dear ones.
But one point is certain: all of these watches are extremely stylish and fit perfectly. These are the ideal wristwatches to choose from if you want to add a touch of sophistication to your outfit. But before that, let’s look at the top 6 Breguet timepieces from the brand.
Classique Manual Wind
It has a silvered solid 18kt white gold dial with a fine engine-turned new Checkered “Art Deco” guilloche design that gives the dial a three-dimensional appearance, a 41 mm diameter, and 6.95 mm thick polished 18kt white gold ultra-slim case. The 4,999 Breguet watches in this range sell for about $28,000, but a similar model can be had for as little as $20,000.
The blued “Breguet” type hands, chapter ring, and painted Roman Numeral hour markers are visible on the impressive dial. A black crocodile leather strap is connected to the polished 18kt white gold ultra-slim case. The Breguet Classique Manual Wind has a 40-hour power reserve and a total of 20 jewels.
Classique Grand Feu Blue Enamel
This timepiece exemplifies Breguet’s skill with enameled dials. Although most of its products have guilloché dials in black or white, this one has an elegant and sophisticated blue grand feu enamel. Several layers of enamel are added to achieve the rich, dark shade of blue, while the numerals and other engravings on the dial are silvered to guarantee maximum intelligibility. Breguet’s “secret signature” is carved around the six o’clock spot and is only visible under closer examination. The sleek 38 mm white gold case contains silicon parts, an automatic caliber with a 55-hour power reserve, and the 777Q movement to operate more efficiently with less lubrication.
Marine Chronographe 5527
The watchmaker widened its Marine range with different bracelet choices for its three titanium designs with this Chronographe 5527 as one of them. The 42.3 mm titanium case complements the sunburst slate-grey dial completely. The watch has a 12-hour chronograph with three sub-dials: a 12-hour register at 6 p.m, a 30-minute register at 3 p.m., and running seconds at 9 a.m. The date is shown between 4 and 5 o’clock, while the self-winding Calibre 582QA with a 48-hour power reserve regulates the wristwatch.
This Classique Chronograph watch has an 18k yellow gold case that is 12 mm thick and 37 mm in diameter, and it has a stunning hand engraved silver dial. The dial features blued “Breguet” type hands and Roman Numeral hour markers. This watch has an alligator brown leather band that is linked to an 18k yellow gold case. A split second and a manual wind split second Chronograph feature operated by a button in the middle of the crown round out the features of the timepiece. The Breguet Classique Chronograph wristwatch has a 48-hour power reserve and can cost up to $50,000.
Classique Tourbillon Extraplat Squelette
The sleek, skeletonized watch is as scientific as it is creative, with a focus on workmanship and an excellent view of the self-winding tourbillon’s spectacular hand detailing. It is one of the slimmest movements of its kind ever made, measuring just 3 mm thick. The gold bridges and plate have been blotted out, resulting in an incredibly lightweight device with an 80-hour power reserve. It is housed in a fluted 41 mm case with a domed glass box that reveals the movement with blued gold added hour markers. The concept is completed with soldered horns in the Breguet style and classic blued moon-tipped hands.
This watch is available in an 18K white gold case with a blue sapphire cabochon on the crown or an 18K rose gold case with a ruby cabochon on the crown and is firstly introduced with a pure mother-of-pearl dial. The bezel and lugs of the 33.5 mm case are set with 88 brilliant-cut diamonds. Blued or rose gold is used for slim, open-tipped palms. The 591A self-winding mechanical mechanism, designed by Breguet artisans, powers the watch with a 38-hour power reserve.
In A Nutshell
Don’t believe everything you see. Just trust Breguet because the Vallée de Joux brand is a big dream dressed in simple, elegant, and delicate clothes. Not a geo, surrealistic, or utopian dream, but a dream in itself and right. The last 10 years have already been fruitful, reminding us of Breguet’s dual appeal. It keeps referring to its original maker, who we often overlook how famous and pioneering a craftsman he was, both theoretically and practically.
