This sophisticated dress watch represents the ultimate Breguet style. The highlight of the timepiece is the watchmaker’s top-notch Clous de Paris hobnail decoration—the engine-turning technique used to create the tiny grooves on the silvered gold dial. Breguet’s engine-turned dials are painstakingly created by hand using the same closely guarded 18th-century techniques used by company founder Abraham Louis Breguet. He created the first engine-tuned dial in 1786—previously the technique was only used to decorate watch cases—and it has become a hallmark of the watchmaker ever since. The dial is accented by roman numerals and open-tipped blued steel hands, created by Breguet in 1783 and now commonly referred to in the industry as “Breguet hands”, and is housed in an extra-thin 38 mm rose gold case. The timepiece features 45 hours of power reserve and comes on a leather alligator strap with a pin buckle.
