Today, we’d like to share with you a classic in the truest sense – the Breguet Classique 5140 in yellow gold.
Breguet pieces are an often-overlooked example of classic watchmaking and design. While well-regarded among enthusiasts, Breguet has quietly maintained a standard for balance and precision in a technological era and done so with little advertising compared to their luxury brand counterparts.
Unique among Breguet’s stable of timepieces, the Classique lives up to its name with an understated elegance. Notice the small seconds that sit just off-center. Despite this asymmetry, the silvered gold dial hand engraved on a rose engine maintains a unique balance and contrasts gracefully with the smooth outer dial. For its part, the 18kt yellow gold case echoes the dials’ smooth/textured duality with a coin-edge engraving circumnavigating the otherwise polished case. Inside, the self-winding automatic movement maintains Breguet’s reputation for accuracy. The design is finished off with a brown alligator strap featuring an 18kt gold pin buckle.
