The Breguet Classique is famous for its never-behind aesthetics, symbolizing the purest Breguet style. This new Classique 5157 ultra-thin rose gold watch is the ultimate example of this concept. The watch is equipped with a self-winding movement and a silicon hairspring. The thickness of the case is only 5.45 millimeters. The outer edge of the case is decorated with coins, reflecting the chronology of the time of Abraham-Louis Breguet. Charm of classic decoration.
The silver-plated gold guilloché dial is in the traditional Clous de Paris style. Since the 16th century, engraved flower carving has been favored by watchmakers. Originally, engraved flowers were only used to decorate the case. Soon after, Mr. Bao Di applied this technique to dial decoration, carving the dial into a real work of art, showing his unremitting efforts to create extraordinary craftsmanship. The dial is hand-engraved in accordance with traditional craftsmanship, and the details are still confidential information. The skill of ingenious craftsmanship is beyond expectations. Same as last year, the engraving process is done by hand engraving machine (for circular decoration) or linear hand engraving machine (for linear pattern). Today, engraved flowers are still one of the signature features of Breguet timepieces. This classic rose gold ultra-thin watch follows the blue-steel Breguet hands designed by the brand’s founder. Designed in 1783, this slender and elegant pointer has been very popular since its introduction. Since then, the ‘Bao Di pointer’ has become a commonly used term in the watchmaking industry.
The Breguet signature carved next to the 12 o’clock position is another exclusive feature. He created this signature design when he discovered that his innovative work was copied by others. To this day, invisible signatures are still a sign of authenticity.
