Breguet Classique Grande Complication 1801. A rarely seen masterpiece.

Sep 15, 2022,08:22 AM
 

You know hinged case backs, but what about a hinged front? 


And an exquisite one. 






But it is even nicer when you open it...  That's what I call a nice looking and well thought tourbillon. 








The package...


It was issued in 2001, in white gold and in rose gold. 

And since its unveiling, it is a watch which always impressed me, even if, since then, there were other Breguet which impressed me even more. 

Best,

Nicolas

Albeit loving coloured gold, here I prefer platinum.

It is too much gold on the wrist, when closed. Otherwise a clever but yet so simple idea to hide the tourbi. A watch with good panache!

Lovely, never saw this!

I would change the tourbillon script for Breguet here. Or no writing? But perhaps the cover would be too bare?

I would have removed it, too.

A very impressive watch.

I always thought that if I will ever get me a tourbillon it has to be a Breguet.

Pure class in gold

Would have been nice to keep the area on the front with 'Tourbillon'...

...blank to allow for engraved initials, etc. But a seriously NSFW piece : )

Why not!

…and it looks amazing and impressive. Very clever and unconventional idea with the hinges front. Thanks for sharing, Nico. Abdullah

My pleasure, Abdullah.

My very first time in Paris, actually Europe

These were in the window of the Breguet Boutique at Place Vendome. They looked amazing in the window and my insignificant 20 year old self didn’t dare ask to see them as they were (and probably still are) way out of my league. Still fond memories!😊

Ah a beautiful Breguet Tourbillon ! always a feast for the eyes...

I like it a lot in white gold too even if some other tourbillon impressed me more. Thanks for sharing this interesting one Nico !

You 😈😜
