The Tradition Dame is one of Breguet’s most coveted Haute Horlogerie icons. The collection is now enriched by the rose gold Tradition Dame…
The watch is a piece that demonstrates exceptional mechanical horology, that generally is, almost exclusively reserved for men. But, not anymore. Here, the mechanics and beauty of the watch are connected in an inextricable way.
The barrel is hand-engraved with a rosette motif and overlapped at 12 o’clock by a dainty offset dial in natural white mother-of-pearl, finely adorned with hand-crafted engine-turned “Clou de Paris” hobnailing. It is clearly visible in the front and centre of the watch, as are the main movement gear trains, as well as the bridges bearing them.
The wearer experiences smooth and instant reading of the hours and minutes pointed by rose gold open-tipped Breguet hands. The sandblasted mainplate and bridges are rhodium-plated to create a pleasing contrast with the rose gold case. The latter is set on its bezel with 68 brilliant-cut diamonds, while a watch jewel sets the perfect finishing touch on the crown.
There has been fine craftsmanship lavished on this model. The gold oscillating weight at the back, graced with the same engraved motif as the barrel, testifies to this exceptional finishing. The watch is equipped with Calibre 505SR and it features a lever escapement with silicon pallets and a Breguet balance-spring also made of silicon.
This new Tradition Dame is set to assert itself as a major player on the scene of feminine Haute Horlogerie.
