The Vallee de Joux is not just the heart of traditional Swiss watch manufacture, it is also the home of every Classique timepiece made by Breguet. The company remain at the forefront of cutting edge technology to ensure their equipment, their materials and their processes can handle the integral aspects of their watchmaking. The many stages of developing a Breguet Classique watch are separated out into different departments at their manufacturing facilities. This ensures that every process is completed to the very highest standards. Metal cutting, case shaping, dial designing, component assembly and quality testing are all important procedures involved in the making of a Classique watch, where specialist artisans and skilled experts control every intricate part of its development.
Classique watches from Breguet are popular everyday timepieces for connoisseurs all over the world. Whilst their classic wristwatch look will appeal to those with a love for traditional manufacture, Breguet's technology and ground-breaking features are sure to strike a chord with modern wristwatch lovers too. These sophisticated wristwatches bear a number of distinct design elements which make every Breguet Classique watch so easily recognisable. Their beautifully fluted case bands and distinct Arabic numerals which company founder, A.- L. Breguet originally designed, are just two examples. The iconic blued steel hands with the “moon” tipped decoration are another signature style. The “Breguet hands” later became a term used within the watch industry by many an expert and watch designer. Breguet Classique watches feature vast, spacious dial layouts which dedicate lots of room to simple, straight-forward timekeeping. A design like this in the modern world is a refreshing change from the many over-complicated and fussy watch designs that now dominate the industry. Breguet have chosen to strip timekeeping back to basics with these supreme tools crafted from luxurious materials like platinum and gold.
The Breguet Classique Power Reserve watch on 18k white gold is a sophisticated timepiece for business and socialising. With a silver coloured dial achieved by hand engraving and engine turning processes, the central blued steel hands with the famous “moon” tips are more than at home. The power reserve indicator shows the status of the impeccable in-house developed 515DR movement, complete with an impressive 96 hour power reserve. The case of the timepiece has been crafted from alluring 18ct white gold and features the “Breguet” lettering in a crisp black hue, along with the watch’s unique identity code. With a sapphire crystal back, the gentleman can observe the peerless performance of the movement after removing its black leather strap with white gold buckle from the wrist. For something a little more classic and clean, the simple Breguet Classique watch with 18ct rose gold frame is a stunning mix of colour, texture and materials. The white dial is home to legible Arabic numerals that can be read clearly through a sapphire crystal glass lens, integrated with anti reflective and scratch resistant technology.
