Breguet’s emblematic “Tradition” collection is being enriched this year with an original model in 18-carat rose gold. This “Grande Complication” timepiece featuring a tourbillon, fusee and chain transmission, and a Breguet balance spring in silicon, joins the existing models in yellow gold and platinum. Inspired by the legendary souscription watches created by A.-L. Breguet, this objet d’art symbolises both a return to roots and a resolutely forward-looking brand vision. Its pure, modern aesthetic sets the stage for the tourbillon and the fusee and chain transmission located on the upper part of the mainplate.
This sculptural piece highlights the contrast and relief effects, giving vibrant life to each component. These technical accomplishments symbolising Breguet’s horological excellence are duly protected by four patents.
In 2006, Breguet presented the first watches with silicon balance spring and escapement. The flat silicon balance springs, made using a raised terminal curve, also known as a “Breguet overcoil”, were recognised as an authentic feat by the watch industry. The rose gold re-edition of the “Tradition 7047PT” also features a silicon Breguet balance spring, as well as a new black galvanic-coated and engine-turned 18-carat gold dial.
