As an introduction to the BaselWorld 2014 trade show, Breguet unveils its Classique Grande Complication Tourbillon Extra-Plat Automatique 5377.
The Breguet Classique Tourbillon extra-thin automatic, announced last year at the BaselWorld 2013 exhibition, returns once again in a noble platinum version. This outstanding extra-thin watch is now highlighted by one of the most demanding of all Grande Complications – the tourbillon. As you can see on this exclusive world preview photograph, the Classique Grande Complication Tourbillon Extra-Plat Automatique 5377 features an off-center tourbillon with a carriage made from titanium - the ingenious innovation is protected by a several patents.
Breguet Classique Grande Complication Tourbillon Extra-Plat Automatique 5377 is powered by the new Calibre 581DR, which beats at 4Hz – an extremely high frequency for a tourbillon watch. Interesting enough, the quest for higher precision is not compensated for the loss of the power reserve – the patented “high-energy” barrel, embedded in the movement, ensures no less than 90 hours of autonomous operation. In addition, the movement incorporates an antimagnetic silicone balance spring, and an escapement made from silicon and steel.
This ultra-thin watch measures only 7mm in thickness, while the height of its movement measures mere 3mm. This was accomplished by positioning the bi-directional platinum winding rotor on the periphery of the movement, which makes this automatic tourbillon one of the world’s thinnest.
Breguet Classique Grande Complication Tourbillon Extra-Plat Automatique 5377 measures 42mm in diameter and it features a gorgeous 18-carat gold dial embellished with four engine-turned patterns: a hobnail pattern for the hours and minutes chapter; a barleycorn surround; a straight chevron pattern for the power-reserve indicator at 8:30; and a cross-hatching to outline each feature.
Breguet Classique Grande Complication Tourbillon Extra-Plat Automatique 5377 is water resistant to 30 meters, it features a sapphire-crystal case back, individually numbered and signed. The watch is mounted on a leather strap with a triple-blade folding clasp, and is also available in a rose gold variant.
