Guilloché in the morning: Breguet Classique 5967 'Art Deco Damier'

Jul 03, 2024,17:14 PM

I never tire of the guilloché work on this dial, enhanced, I think, by the relatively large (41 mm), extra-flat case, 2-hand layout, and narrow bezel. 

Released in 2009, I think, and while I don't think it was a limited edition, it wasn't in production for very long. I suppose some might turn their noses up at a "classical dress watch" of this diameter, but 1) the movement completely fills the case, and 2) I don't know that the proportions would work on anything much smaller.

It is unusual that the movement fits...

On my Breguet list. Puts me in the mind of Amish tumbling blocks.

Funny, because I am not a big guy. (5’7”, 150 lbs.) I do have a 7” wrist, and quite flat, so I seem to do OK with watches much bigger than this: Portugieser Perpetual Calendar, GO Senator Cosmopolite, A & S Time Pyramid (all +/-44 mm). A full-size Radiomi...

Great not to have a filler around the movement It’s in the data I’ve Ben collecting - looks like it came in yellow or white gold and is the only reference using that movement

I wasn’t prepared to see a large, classical, hand-wound movement - I was expecting to see one of the smaller automatics based off the F Piguet Cal 71, with the slightly-eccentric rotor. The movement takes this from “nice” to “ooooooooh!”. Enjoy!!! Best E....
