Breguet Classique Tourbillon 5377

<< Back to Watch Collector, January 2014

Breguet has had a significant head start on the postmodernist watchmaking movement; the broad and thin dimensions of its original 200-year-old pocket watches are once again avant-garde. Seeking to create a simple tourbillon to emphasize these lines, the company has placed a modern titanium cage with a silicium hairspring and escapement into a new, modernly proportioned movement. The extra diameter of the Classique Tourbillon 5377 ($149,500) neatly houses a peripheral rotor, allowing the utility of self-winding without impacting the timepiece’s aesthetics.
