BREGET TRADITION 7038BB

Between Tradition and modernity 

 

 

The Breguet Tradition Dame is one of those haute horlogerie watches that every woman can dream of, seduced by the pink sheen of its mother-of-pearl, the beauty of its movement, its set bezel, its beautiful watchmaking mechanism as Breguet has always known how to make it. 

The watch for Lady is in Breguet's native DNA. Abraham Louis Breguet himself, and then the Breguet manufactory, have always made haute horlogerie pieces for women. Each watch is designed as a mechanical creation of a prestigious collection, in keeping with Breguet's precious heritage. 

The new Tradition Dame de Breguet watch collection is part of this tradition initiated by Abraham Louis Breguet. Today, this Tradition Dame collection borrows both from the mechanical heritage left by Abraham Louis Breguet and from the mechanical movement created in the 21st century by the contemporary Breguet Manufacture. The watch 

Tradition Dame does not have a complete dial. Instead of this dial, Breguet deployed its mechanical movement, some of whose elements had been engraved and finished to please each lady who acquired it. The individually signed and numbered Breguet haute horlogerie mechanical movement (as for each Breguet watch) thus becomes a mechanical composition of a brilliant style, in the purest tradition of mechanical calibre watches, a play of light in which the bridges and components of the watch correspond. 

Mother-of-pearl and diamond shards

At the top of this mechanical dial are the hands, in movement above a mother-of-pearl dial. This time dial is actually composed of a first guilloche mother-of-pearl dial overshadowed by the hour hand, with a second dial still made of mother-of-pearl around the edges, under the minute hand. Next to this mother-of-pearl dial is the watch's power reserve, right on the back of the movement, which is animated by Breguet's mechanics for 50 hours. 

It is a power reserve that is frequently found in Breguet's Tradition watch collection, and this Tradition Dame is no exception, thanks to a mechanical movement equipped with a silicon escapement. Silicon, controlled by Breguet, provides greater stability to the mechanics of watches equipped with it. Today, as in the past, Breguet haute horlogerie watches want to be watches with precise and reliable mechanics, in an elegant and timeless case. This is the heritage of Abraham Louis Breguet and this Tradition Dame watch collection pays tribute to them. 

A great lady of watchmaking

To highlight this great lady of watchmaking, Breguet has dressed the watches in its Tradition Dame collection with a bezel set with brilliant-cut diamonds. These brilliant-cut diamonds give the case in pink or white gold a particular brilliance that is reflected in each component of the mechanical movement as well as in the mother-of-pearl dial. The brilliant cut is a traditional diamond cut found throughout Breguet's work, particularly in his ladies' watches. A piece set in this way, within a case in white or pink gold of only 37 mm, makes it possible to perpetuate this art of traditional mechanical assembly, as desired by Abraham Louis Breguet more than two centuries ago. 

Today, this Tradition Dame takes all the codes from it and completes them with a mechanical movement which, within the entire collection, is equipped with a silicon escapement movement. Mother-of-pearl, brilliant-cut diamonds, 37 mm case, silicon, pink or white gold case: this Tradition Dame de Breguet watch clearly shows its attachment to fine watchmaking, both traditional and modern. The beautiful Breguet mechanics remain in motion more than ever !
