The Breguet Boutiques Get Two New And Exclusive Models

It is a strategy that quite a few brands follow; launch models that are only available in their own boutiques. Over the years, this has proven to be a worthwhile strategy for them, as in search of something special, many made the pilgrimage to obtain a watch that cannot be found elsewhere. Breguet just added two new boutique editions that make it indeed very tempting to visit one of their boutiques, as they offer all the distinct features of the brand in a unique package. READ MORE

HomeWatch ReleasesBreguet Further Expands The Marine Collection With Six New Watches Watch ReleasesBreguet Further Expands The Marine Collection With Six New Watches New full-gold bracelets for three Marine models by Jorg Weppelink June 18, 2020 MIN READBreguet Further Expands The Marine Collection With Six New WatchesFor 2020 Breguet has chosen to expand its Marine collection. In March, we saw the release of a new rose gold Marine Tourbillon Équation Marchante 5887. Today sees Breguet adding another six new watches to the Marine collection. Although not technically “new”, they are very welcome additions.
The Marine 5517, 5527, and 5547 have been familiar faces in the current Marine collection that was introduced in 2018. To expand the collection, Breguet decided to introduce them with full gold bracelets.
…my appreciation for the Marine collection had grown tremendously.
It’s funny how things change over time. As I mentioned in my article on the Marine Tourbillon Équation Marchante 58..

Breguet Reine De Naples 8918 Continues A Long Tradition

HomeKarina's KornerBreguet Reine De Naples 8918 Continues A Long Tradition Karina's KornerBreguetBreguet Reine De Naples 8918 Continues A Long Tradition A tradition of excellence and dying craft skills on display… by Karina Kwiatkowska May 05, 2020 MIN READBreguet Reine De Naples 8918 Continues A Long Tradition1810 was a remarkable milestone for watchmaking history. Caroline Murat, the younger sister of Napoléon Bonaparte and a huge art collector with her singular vision of beauty acquired over 30 Breguet watches and clocks. It may not come as a surprise, but one of them was special as it was designed to be worn on the wrist by Breguet’s artisans at Quai de l’Horloge in Paris.
Men still preferred to possess traditional pocket watches. But the Queen of Naples revolutionized the way timepieces could be worn. With the delivery of the first wristwatch in 1812, the chic oblong-shaped repeater with a moon-phase indicator and a thermometer on a gold thread bracelet became a revolu..

Back then they did so in platinum and rose gold. Breguet has added another rose gold version to the 5887 lineup. A spectacular slate-grey dial gives this model a distinct character.
For a long time, I thought Breguet watches were too classically-styled for my taste. Despite this, they keep growing on me. Every time I take a closer look at the Breguet collection, I find myself attracted to a growing number of incredible watches. I have had a soft spot for the Breguet Type XX line but I have started to appreciate more watches from the brand’s catalog. Maybe it’s an age thing? Maybe, now I’ve hit ..

Breguet Is Betting On Blue With New Models

Blue is here to stay, not only for nautical-inspired watches but throughout the spectrum of different types of timepieces. This can hardly come as a surprise as the color often strikes just the right tone and can just as easily be worn with formal wear as well as match with something casual. However, when a brand like Breguet is also betting big on blue, donning some of its most classic creations in this color, we have truly confirmation that blue has arrived. READ MORE

HomeWatch TalkBreguet Classique models 7137 And 7337 Given New Lease of Life Watch TalkBreguetBreguet Classique models 7137 And 7337 Given New Lease of Life The beguiling art of guilloché elevates the dials of these iconic models to new heights by Rob NuddsMarch 17, 2020 MIN READBreguet Classique models 7137 And 7337 Given New Lease of LifeOne of the finest arts in the world of watchmaking brings the new dials of the Breguet Classique 7137 and 7337 models to life. The time-honored craft of guilloché takes years to master. But for Breguet, the years of training required to operate these archaic machines, are clearly years well spent.
When a watch collection is defined by its adherence to traditional styles and values, the use of genuine craft techniques is essential. A guilloché dial, produced using a rose engine machine, is not just a beautiful object because of its aesthetics, but also because of the effort that has gone into making it. It is not possible, however tempting, to achieve..

Nor, as you may have noticed if you live in a clement part of the world, is the color blue. However, these two staples of daily luxury life have never been brought together. That is until now…
There are few brands in the industry that have the name-power of Breguet. It isn’t just that the modern iteration of the brand is renowned for high-quality timepieces often flaunting a timeless elegance others struggle to match, but it is also the weight of history attached to the founder’s name. Abraham-Louis Breguet was not just a watchmaker. He was arguably the watchmaker. In his..

Breguet Classique Tourbillon Extra-Plat Automatique 5367 Grand Feu Blue Enamel Dial Watch

Just announced, the Breguet Classique Tourbillon Extra-Plat Automatique 5367 is a blue enamel dial version of Breguet’s very thin, very subtle, and very expensive caliber 581. Last year we saw the Squelette 5395, which gives a look through the skeletonized movement, but this 5367 echoes the three-hand Classique 5177 with a blue enamel dial. While an impressive enamel finish really does need to be seen in person to appreciate, I have seen several enamel-dial Breguet pieces and they really are among the best out there. I find that the choice of this deep blue goes a long way in making the highly traditional Breguet aesthetic just a little more contemporary.

While Bulgari has taken the mantle of thinnest tourbiillon, the Extra-Plat Automatique 5367 did hold the title when it was released back in 2013. The original model was done in a guilloché dial and saw its first enamel dial back in 2017, which was done in white.
The tone of blue that Breguet aims to achieve on this enamel dial is i..

We have three watches from high-end brands A. Lange & Söhne, Audemars Piguet, and Breguet. On the other end of the spectrum, but nevertheless interesting, we have a Swatch. Last but not least, a Speedmaster that didn’t sell at first but is highly in demand today.
Last week we solely focused on dive watches, as that seems to be one of the most popular styles or categories of watches. However, there’s more out there and with this week’s selection, we hope to prove this. There’s only one divers’ watch, from Audemars Piguet, and although it is up to the task, you c..
