The Breguet Reine De Naples Princesse 8968 (Refs. 8968BR/11/986 0D0D & 8968BR/X1/986 0D0D) delivers a blend of a classic-looking ovoid body with all the usual stuff that we expect from the collection. The list includes a notched side strip and crown, which is ergonomically placed at 4 o’clock, and a decisively modern off-centered dial with stylized numerals and a slight variation of the traditional “Breguet” hands that so many -ahem- other watchmakers love so much.
The new Breguet Reine de Naples Charleston Automatic (Ref. 8928BB/51/J60 DD0D), for example, while coming in an easily recognizable body, differs from the rest of the pack with its absolutely outrageous Charleston-type bracelet that can be had either in understated white or in more traditional yellow gold (ref. 8928BA/51/J60 DD0D.)
The 2011 Breguet Classique 7787 Moon Phases collection is finally available in four versions with two sizes of the case and two finishes of the dial. All of them are offered strictly in 18-karat gold alloys of rose and white variety.
The strikingly gorgeous Breguet Classique 5717 Hora Mundi World Timer with an unusual programmable multiple time zones indicator was officially presented during the Baselworld 2011 trade show. But don’t hold your breath just yet: as it is customary for the Swiss-based ultra-luxury brand, the watch -which is supposed to be delivered both in 18-karat rose gold (ref. 5717BR/AS/9ZU, pictured,) as well as a lot more expensive platinum (ref. 5717PT/US/9ZU)- will go on sale to select stores no earlier than the end of the year.
Breguet has reissued the self-winding 2009 Classique 7337 in an exquisitely finished rose gold case. Besides the choice of metal, there are no visual differences between the original and the 2011 year reissue.
The 2011 Breguet Reveil du Tsar Boutique Edition (ref. 5707ER/29/9V6) with its grand feu-enameled face and a mechanical alarm feature offers a perfect balance of legibility and eternal elegance. Originally introduced during the Baselworld 2003 trade show, the Breguet Reveil du Tsar has been updated with a gorgeous white Grand Feu enamel dial.
Celebrating the 100th Anniversary of the French Naval Aviation, Breguet, one of the oldest and most venerable Swiss Houses (also, the one that is currently one of the most precious jewels in the gorgeous crown worn by The Swatch Group,) has revealed its new limited-edition Type XX Aeronavale 3803ST (Ref. 3803ST/92/W6) flyback chronograph. Preserving its decisively sporty appearance, the 3803ST replaces the traditional notched bezel with a diving scale with more traditional seconds/minutes ring but keeps the easily legible dial. Surprisingly, it is now offered in a compact stainless steel body measuring only 39 millimeters in diameter.
Breguet, a watchmaking brand that was established in Paris, France back in 1775 by Abraham-Louis Breguet himself and is now a part of The Swatch Group, has released a rose gold version of its Marine Royale 5847 collection that features a mechanical alarm system. Soon to come to a boutique near you, the new timekeeper costs almost €30,000 and makes a strange, yet painfully powerful first impression.
