Marina Milojević | 01.04.17 | 04:45 PM

Breguet unveils its Pre-Basel 2017 timepiece: the Breguet Dame 7038. As announced by the renowned Swiss watchmaker, its 2017 pre-Basel launch is devoted to women.

Breguet presents an exclusive glimpse at a new version of its Tradition Dame model, which is, this time, clad in rose gold. The delicate new timepiece, aimed at women who appreciate fine watchmaking, is powered by a highly complex self-winding movement, which is partially revealed from the dial side. The barrel is hand-decorated with a rosette motif engraving, and overlapped at 12 o’clock by a graceful hours and minutes dial in genuine white mother-of pearl. The center of the dial is finely adorned with hand-made, engine-turned Clou de Paris hobnailing. The open-tipped hands, as well as the seconds hand, are made from the same material as the case.

The case, crafted from noble 18-karat rose gold, measures 37 mm in diameter, which makes it ideally suited to feminine wrists. A dazzling row of 68 brilliant-cut diamonds embellishes the bezel, imbuing the model, whose complete aesthetics rests on mechanical horology, with a gracious feminine spirit. A single watch movement jewel adds the finishing touch on the fluted crown.

The watch is powered by the self-winding movement, Caliber 505SR, which is numbered and signed by Breguet. The mechanism powers the retrograde seconds indication, engraved on the movement face. If you look close enough, you’ll be able to see it at 10 o’clock position. The movement, mounted on 38 jewels, beats at a frequency of 3Hz, and provides around 50 hours of power reserve.
