Breguet 7147BR

Breguet Classique 7147


The quintessential Breguet elegance in a timeless form. A grand demonstration of the inimitable Breguet style of classic watchmaking with its own aesthetic codes, the Breguet Classique 7147 watch is as pure and classical a watch as they come.

Crafted in a thin 40mm case in either rose gold or white gold, the case of the Breguet Classique watch features signature Breguet watch traits such as the fluted sides of the case and small crown signed with the Breguet “B”. The rose gold Breguet Classique watch case offers a bright contrast against the dial, while the white gold case has a warm hue that is undoubtedly subtler.

The dial of the Breguet Classique 7147 watch is a work of art in itself. Painstakingly handmade by artisans using ancestral methods that are very much a heritage of the Breguet brand, the classic white dial of the Classique is made of grand feu enamel. Requiring multiple firings in a kiln oven by Breguet dial 
artists, the white grand feu Classique enamel dial has a unique texture and a bold white color atop a solid gold dial base that will never fade with time. In keeping with the tradition of grand feu enamel, the dial features Breguet Arabic numerals, featuring the very same kind of typography that Abraham-Louis Breguet used on his clocks and pocket watches centuries ago. The central hour and minute hands are Breguet “apple” shaped and flame-blued, providing a striking contrast of the legible hands against the white grand feu enamel dial. The small seconds is placed off-center between 5 and 6 o’clock, occupying its own recessed space on the grand feu enamel dial, adding to its complexity.

The back of the gold case features a sapphire crystal with a clear view of the automatic manufacture movement within. Lavishly decorated, the bridges of the in-house automatic calibre are finished with côtes de Genève or Geneva stripes, while the central gold rotor of the automatic movement is given a radiant guilloche engraved surface. On the more technical side, the movement is fitted with the Breguet inverted straight-line escapement lever, and the balance spring is made of flat silicon, beating at a frequency of 3 Hz. The use of silicon in such a classic watch demonstrates how Breguet seeks to manufacture watches with
the precision that will endure through time. When fully found, the calibre provides a power reserve of 45 hours.

Fitted on a brown alligator leather strap for the rose gold Breguet Classique watch model and black alligator for the white gold model, the Breguet Classique 7147 is a watch that is suited not just for formal occasions where elegance is a perquisite, but for all occasions. Such a timeless, handcrafted Breguet Classique watch lives up to the legacy of Breguet and its longstanding tradition of combining classical design in its watches with an innovative performance from the movement.
