BREGUET CLASSIQUE 9068
With iridescent mother-of-pearl and its clean lines, the new Classique 9068 watch embodies the Breguet style in a creation designed for women. Presented for the first time with a natural mother-of-pearl dial, the Classique 9068 emphasizes the style of Breguet’s watchmaking art. Abraham-Louis Breguet set up a business in Paris in 1775. He was opposed to the baroque style then in vogue, lending his creations a surprising and pleasing sobriety. The Breguet style–neoclassical and characterized by mechanical reliability–attracted prestigious clients, including Queen Marie-Antoinette, and later the Empresses Joséphine and Marie-Louise, as well as the Duchess of Wellington. Reflecting that same quest for simplicity, the dial of the new Classique model comes alive with white mother-of-pearl on a fine rose or white gold case. To add to the splendor, 88 brilliant-cut diamonds illuminate the gold of the bezel and lugs of the bracelet. The model beats to the rhythm of a self-winding manufacture caliber with the essential functions–the second hand in the center and the date window at 3 o’clock.
BREGUET MARINE DAME 9518
Marine Dame 9517 in Steel and Marine Dame 9518 in Diamond-Set Steel
The House of Breguet also offers the Marine in steel and inlaid steel. The dials of these models are done in natural opaline mother-of-pearl or marbled blue lacquer, animated by clearer volutes reminiscent of the white-horses of the sea –or a starlit night sky, which was used for navigation in former times. To achieve this decor, the artisan applies a clear lacquer on the still liquid azure material. When they come into contact, the colors marbleize and create a unique image, thus rendering each piece exclusive. Visible by the sapphire-crystal caseback, the rotor bears the engine-turned mare a motif in mother-of-pearl–in azure or white, depending on the shade of the dial. The bezel of the inlaid-steel variant is enlivened by 60 brilliant-cut diamonds. As early as in the 18th century, Abraham-Louis Breguet created watches for daring women. Today,dedicated to the modern adventurer, the Marine by Breguet evokes an exhilarating sense of adventure at sea.
