The Breguet Classique is one of a small group of watches that is immune to fluctuating style trends. It utilizes the classical aesthetic first introduced in Breguet pocket watches of the late 18th century, with its signature Breguet hands, engine-turned silver dial, and coin edge bezel. The result is a design that is both classic yet contemporary, and simple yet interesting.
The Breguet Classique reference 5177BB features an 18kt white gold case that measures 38 mm in diameter and 8.8 mm thick, making it the perfect size for a modern dress watch. It is powered by Breguet’s in-house Calibre 777Q automatic movement, which is entirely hand-finished and can be viewed through the piece’s sapphire caseback. It features an anti-magnetic “Anachron” hairspring, 18kt rose gold rotor, and a power reserve of 55 hours. This piece comes on its original Breguet black alligator strap and 18kt white gold tang buckle.
This example of the Breguet Classique reference 5177BB is in excellent pre-owned condition, with minimal surface wear on its case and buckle. It is sold as a complete set with its original box and papers. It has also recently undergone a full service and comes with Feldmar Watch Company’s Certified Pre-Owned – 2 Year Warranty.
