Hands-On with the Breguet Classique Tourbillon Extra-Thin Automatic 5377 in Platinum

In 2013, Breguet introduced the 5377 Classique Tourbillon Extra-Thin, the world’s thinnest tourbillon. It was initially only shown to the press in rose gold, even though at the time it was revealed that it would eventually be available in both rose gold and platinum. And so, while this is not a new release per se — this is the first time the platinum model has been exhibited.

Breguet Tourbillon Extra-Thin Automatic 5377 in Platinum

Pre-Baselworld 2014

Originally introduced at Baselworld 2013 in rose gold, the Breguet Extra-Thin Automatic 5377 will be unveiled at Baselworld 2014 in platinum. The Tourbillon Extra-Thin automatic features an off-center tourbillon with a carriage in titanium. The movement, caliber 581DR, uses a silicon balance spring and an escapement made of silicon and anti-magnetic steel. Thanks to a high energy barrel the maximum power reserve is an impressive 90-hours. The movement is just under 3 mm thick, allowing for a case that is just 7 mm thick. Read more HERE.

"Breguet the Innovator. Inventor of the Tourbillon" Exhibition NYC (11 photos)

Breguet Fifth Avenue Flagship NYC Boutique

Breguet’s traveling exhibition “Breguet the Innovator. Inventor of the Tourbillon,” made the final stop of its worldwide tour in NYC last Thursday at the brand’s flagship boutique on Fifth Avenue. To celebrate, Breguet held a private cocktail reception, allowing guests to view one of largest selections of tourbillons ever assembled in one place, including the star of the show — the No. 2567 tourbillon chronometer pocket watch made by Abraham-Louis Breguet himself in 1812 (pictured in the 3 images just under this paragraph). It is one of only 35 tourbillons that Breguet — the inventor of the tourbillon — ever made in his lifetime, and one of only 7 still known to be in existence.

The Breguet Type XXII 3880 Rose Gold

One of the new releases at Baselworld this year from Breguet is the Type XXII 3880, now available in an 18 carat rose gold case. As with all Breguet watches the case is beautifully crafted and exceptionally finished, enhanced with details like a fluted caseband and round end lugs. The case measures 44 mm in diameter with a bi-directional 60 minute scale bezel. A screw locked crown ensures water resistance to 100 meters. The brown dial compliments the rose gold very nicely and features sunken sub dials, applied rose gold arabic numerals, and printed below the Breguet script “retour en vol 10 Hz” (flyback 10 Hz in french). The brown leather strap has red and white contrast stitching which matches perfectly with the red and white minute markers on the main dial.

Hands-On With The Breguet Classique Chronograph 5287

The Breguet Classique Chronograph 5287 was introduced earlier this year in either an 18K rose or white gold case measuring 42.5 mm in diameter. It is shown with an 18K gold silvered dial with four engine turned patterns (also available in a black dial). Inside is a manually wound 533.3 caliber (previously called 2310) designed in the 1940s by Albert Piguet at Lémania, where is was called caliber CH 27. At the time, it gained a reputation for its endurance and reliability. And now, Breguet decided to introduce the reference 5287 to honor the legendary Lémania based movement. The modern version, called caliber 533.3, has received a redesign, visible through the clear case back. Needless to say, the finishing of the movement is superb.
