Breguet Tradition 7037. A feast for the eyes!

Jan 04, 2023,17:23 PM
 

When I pulled out my macro lens and took some close-ups I got surprised. And not in the usual way where the surprise is of the disappointing kind, on the contrary! I did not expect that level of finishing on this piece! Anglage by hand, black mirror polishing, beveled wheel spokes, hand-engraved logos and numbers for the seconds scale. Did I miss something? I would love to hear your opinions and thoughts on the topic of the quality of the movement.

Looking forward to trying out the loupe system I got for Christmas.

I've been eyeing those for a while!

Will do!

This movement turned out to be a macro star!

Tried taking a few shots of the Chopard 1.96 and results weren't anywhere near as spectacular. Must be the depth of the movement and the matt finish

Oh my...such lovely photos and macros, amazing details....are you using a microscope for these photos?

Can you share your setup of camera, lens etc?

Yeah, it was really hard focusing through that tiny eyepiece

Jokes aside, I use the Oly E-M1 Mk2 and the Zuiko 60mm macro. A bounced flash as well.

Breguet's finishing is underrated

This minute repeater has one of the most beautiful and maximalist movements I've ever seen... A feast for the eyes. ...  

Unfortunately, those are no longer a secret and the prices have climbed dramatically during the past year or two.

And even though the hand-engraved bridges are not my preferred style for a movement finish, I can appreciate the amount of labour that went into that movement!

I have got the wg one but the yg is much more spectacular, I must say. 👍

Thank you!

The YG version is very eye-catching! Of course, it could never compete in this regard with an Oyster Perpetual with a yellow dial but still, it's extremely exuberant in appearance.

Fantastic jobs with these photos!

I love the warmth of this version with the yellow gold frosting.

Somebody does not like the rotor.

But I love 7037 more than 7027!

Love your pictures!

Thanks for this incredible story. I am not a yellow-gold man, but I was sold. GEO
