Breguet celebrates the modern gentleman by continuing its “Classic Tour” in the Big Apple. After visiting several major cities around the world this past year, New York City welcomes this edition of the worldwide tour with a look at a day-in-the-life of a bespoke gentleman living in New York.
Contemporary Watches for the Contemporary Gentleman
The contemporary Breguet gentleman is elegant and detailed – just like a Breguet watch. His life is purposeful and precise. He begins each morning by slipping on a Breguet Classique wristwatch, then forges ahead for the day at hand with the help of his city’s finest artisans.
To demonstrate this dapper lifestyle, Breguet hosted an evening of modern refinement at the world-renowned international home of music, Carnegie Hall. Quintessentially New York, Carnegie Hall is known for performances by some of the most iconic figures in history. From Sergei Rachmaninoff to Arthur Rubenstein, the Carnegie Hall stage has been graced by many a Breguet timepiece owner. Breguet is proud to be the Exclusive Timepiece of Carnegie Hall.
On the evening of July 12, 2018, the modern gentleman is celebrated for his panache and savoir-faire. Featuring a bespoke tailor, personalized shoe care, and hand-made cigars, the Breguet “Classic Tour” event brings the essence of a fine gentleman to the essential Manhattan summer rooftop soiree. The evening is accentuated by Breguet master watchmakers on-site to demonstrate the art of hand-made guilloche on a watch dial, and provide detailed presentations on the unparalleled craftsmanship of Breguet.
Classic, Stylish and Timeless
The star of the “Classic Tour” is the timeless Breguet Classique collection, which offers the brand’s widest variety of timepieces. The Classique collection ranges from traditional yet sophisticated, to complicated modernity with enough mechanical features to feast the horological eye.
Centuries of Innovation Continues
In 2018, Breguet continues to innovate with new models such as the Classique Extra-Thin Tourbillon 5367 with “Grand Feu” enamel dial, the Classique Extra-Thin 5157 wristwatch in rose gold with a hand-made guilloche dial, and several selections for ladies.
The prowess of the Classique collection boasts a legacy of watchmaking innovation spanning nearly two-and-a-half centuries.
