This, in my opinion is one of the strongest offerings from Breguet in a long time. It manages to capture some of the famous Marie-Antoinette magic.

impressed

Not the thinnest, but there is more than hold a record, make a real peace of art. Beauty is a quality, evermore. Nicolas, your visit at Breguet is for watchprosite an enrichment.

That's the problem with a skeleton dial! I prefer something else instead.

However, trying it on, I must say that the thinness of this piece is a major part of its character. From a different time trying on the enamel dial: ...  

Also, it seems they used a sapphire rather than a ruby at the center of the tourbillon!

A cosmetic difference, as they are both the same mineral, but an interesting choice nonetheless!

Nice catch. I like that! [nt]

The pictures your contact provided are beautiful. It’s hard to imagine a rose engine creating that pattern on such a tiny little bridge. The attention to detail is evident.
