A very special piece fit for a very special woman

May 25, 2024,22:57 PM

Here is my wife's Tourbillon, one of the very first Tourbillon wrist watch produced by Breguet, this magnificient ref 3350 was originally purchased in Genève in 1989. It just received an up graded deployant clasp as well as a custom made leather strap, and I must say, it looks gorgeous. The piece looks more casual than on its original croco strap and pin buckle. Interestingly, the deployant is a small size one, it is shorter than the Standard, which for

Deployant and custom strap

my wife's wrist fits perfectly.

Stellar combination with that strap 👌

Thank you! She is happy too with the outcome, it's not always easy when you custom something...

But the result looks great, we will still do some adjustments for the next ones. But happy wife, happy life!🤔

Yes, absolutely stunning! Hidden beauty of that watch.

Engraving, ciselage, a work of art, really! Here is a picture, and the flower decoration is only on the 1st couple of years of the 3350. So, they are quite a rare sight. ...  

Thank you! I have so many watch stories... ahahaj!!

Maybe I should make a compilation of it all, one day... 🤔

Beautiful 3350!

One of my favourites! The picture is not very clear, so I can't quite tell if there is some text around 4 o'clock?

It's an early 3350, used to have no text originally, but dial has been refurbished.

After extensive service at Breguet/Swiss, now there is.. I was a bit disappointed at first, but my wife is happy with it, the way it is now. That's the most important. Crown was replaced, but they kept the small crown without "B".

Ah that makes sense

I have seen some 3350 with dial replacements, which has that text. But most important is happy wife Enjoy!

A marvelous example of Breguet’s top offerings from the brands heydays.

One of Breguet's most beautiful tourbillons!

The one, that started it all.. and the blue print for so many other brands, even..

They set the standard of an open display, showing a tourbillon at 6 a clock.

A beautiful piece.

And the color of the strap works perfectly. The period in Breguet’s history, from 1970 to, oh let’s say August of 1999, is the absolute highlight of the modern brand. So many great references and limited editions came from that time. Your wife’s tourbillo... 

Thanks for your input, I totally agree with you, the 3337 "la Chinoise

 By: Cocolex : May 27th, 2024-06:39
The 3137 also, or the chronograph, and perpetual.. too many beautiful reference of that period.. The 70's one are so rare, and so expensive. Saw one rescently with asking price of GBP 70k...

Alright, you have my full attention🤣
