Breguet Tradition - Retrograde

May 23, 2023,03:37 AM

I thought I was pretty good on watches 

When I was scrolling through my favorite site lol
And no kidding, someone posted one of these at a great price
How could I resist? LOL smile 

So, same awesome level of finishing as normal breguet traditions, but you get a very cool retrograde function with a unique automatic rotor as well which is mirror polished. Interestingly, the way they finish the rotor on the retrograde is different versus the  time only 40mm version of this watch. 

Tried to capture pics of the awesome parachute system, but really hard with an iphone.

So far I have tried:
Regular time only 37mm tradition
Tradition GMT
Tradition Retrograde

I think this is my favorite version because of the fun/entertaining retrograde function but all of them are great watches, especially going 2nd hand.

I would LOVE the TB or chrono, but never see either pop up used. Maybe I will upgrade to one of those in the future. smile

My favorite Tradition as well,

not including the higher order pieces (chrono, tourbillon). Iā€™m wearing mine now. Love it. Perfect size for me. Excellent depth to the movement and the details are excellent.

Ahh! Humble genius!

They really give me a indie vibe.

The Tradition is the inspiration for the Lecomte 2

He is doing some group projects now and because he is not a full time watchmaker it will take some time
