A picture of my small Breguet collection.

Aug 23, 2020,02:53 AM
 

I have always been strongly attracted to the specific aesthetics of the Breguet watches.




These are "different" from the majority of what can be found on other watches.
The quality is superb with a great attention to detail and finishing.And their movements are of top quality (something we can expect from the Swatch group..).
My next possible Breguet? Could be the 5177 white gold blue enamel dial (despite the presence of the date...).

Best,
Gerard

Now I will have to wait for the right moment and occasion....

LOL but I agree. [nt]

Here is what my AD told me about dates (in general not about the 5177):

1 out of 10 customers will not buy the watch because of the date ; 3 out of 10 will not care whether there is a date or not ; 6 out of 10 will not buy the watch if it has no date So I guess that in this forum we are a bit of a special crowd

In principle it's understandable: the date is a useful complication (even if less and less since we have phones, etc., like in a sense we can argue that a watch is no longer "necessary" to tell time :-)

Personally, I do have a (general) preference for no-date for aesthetic reasons, but it's normally not a big deal, so I can in most instances live with it. However, here we are speaking of an otherwise superb enamel dial, which a date window is not only un... 

Agree😀🥂 [nt]

Small is such an ugly relative word

You’ve got 3 master pieces that each one by themselves carries a part of the breguet legacy and history. How can that be “small”. I call it a perfect reflection of a brand

Many thanks! [nt]

Wow! What a trio.

Strange that Breguet doesn’t get as much adulation as say AP or VC. This trio says it all. The quality just pops out of the screen. I often think about picking up your version of the 5817, but now I have two more to seriously consider!

Each one an highlight [nt]

Three very different watches, all with their own appeal.

I’m a big fan of the Tradition, one day perhaps.

That’s a damn fine Breguet collection!

 
 By: Ted-Lo : August 23rd, 2020-05:57
Watch for every occasion.

Thanks a lot. [nt]

That's a really high quality trio! Too bad this brand is so underrated as some of its production is very impressive...

 
 By: FabR : August 23rd, 2020-06:21
Love the white enamel dial the most, a blue 5177 would indeed be an excellent fourth entry in this collection (even though I frankly cannot conceive its date at 3 o'clock...it's one of the most egregious I've seen on an otherwise fantastic dial! ;-)

Great collection all around!

I'm really liking how you captured your Marine in the pic. It's such a classic (and of course the others are too! Kind regards, Dan

A marvelous and varied collection!

the blue dialed version of the tradition has caught my eye, as well as the blue dial 5177 ...  

Exquisite collection!

Breguet is a great brand! Slightly underappreciated compared to the currently in-vogue brands.

Spectacular!

I love Breguet. Timeless watches.

bravo

The Marine is growing on me.

Amazing. Wonderful [nt]
