More impressions from my visit today to the Breguet boutique

Aug 27, 2020,12:35 PM

New La Tradition blue dial

Tourbillion extra plat 5367 with its fantastic (!) blue enamel dial.

On the picture below how you would expect it to look like:

BUT on the next picure you can see that the blue is not bluntly blue, but with a purple sheen too!:

amazing depth!

Classique 7373 blue

One I also like a lot, more than the 7373: Classique 7137 blue

I think the 7173 will look better on the wrist than the 7373 for the spectators.

Overall a very nice day at the Breguet Boutique in Düsseldorf with its very knowledgeable and utterly friendly personnel.

Interesting day out ...

Lots to think about... which was your favourite ?

The least attractive to me was the 7373 only, all others are great pieces

I found the 7173 particullarly good looking.

I like the 7137...

How about the new La Tradition blue ?

The new La Tradition blue is again another stunning La Tradition

Its size of 40 mm is easy to wear and right for such a watch. The new blue dial gives it a technical touch, which is anyway the theme of the La Tradition. One cannot go wrong with any variant of it!

For me also, and the 7173 ;-)

That blue dial is really cool and different from the usual blue dials. It adds a lot to this new model

7173 def elegant, but I think I could wear the La Tradition daily,

Even in non professional settings.

Oh yes, it is an easy to dress down watch, for any occasion.

The 7173 will look "beter" as an accessory on the wrist, for others to see.

I think the Tourbillon is stunning

A clean but strong dial with fantastic blue enamel and all the attention drawn to the Tourby. I would have preferred a centered dial though, particularly due to the Tourbillon at 5. Otherwise, a beauty! Best, Daniel

At first you could whish for a centred dial, but the more you look at it, the more you will like it.

The dial is so captivating, I never thought it could look any better, or that the tourbi is at a wrong position. Technically the tourbi is a top tier piece!

Thank you for more great photos.

Between the new blue dial 7097 and the 7597, may I ask you which was more impressive in the metal?

That is a tricky question

 By: COUNT DE MONET : August 27th, 2020-14:43
I liked the rg pointer date a bit more than the wg version. The blue dial is a boutique only piece and will be rarer than the 7579, I suppose. At first trying both leave you equally impressed and you would need to digest them for some time, in order to co... 

For me no one makes a more attractive grand feu dial

But I really like that Tradition in blue.

These are some great looking Breguet's.

Me too I favor the 7137 vs the 7337 and I am looking forward to see it in person. I was not aware of a Breguet boutique in Düsseldorf: that is good news as I am living only about 2.5 hours driving away .... Best, Gerard

Hello jlux, a day after the visit the 7137 is still my favourite over the 7337.

Pay a visit to the boutique and you will see how gorgeous it is. The new 7597 is also available at the boutique, and according to the manager not many boutiques have got yet one. I liked the RG 7597 a lot!

I tried on the 40mm La Tradition with the retrograde seconds. It was indeed a lovely watch that wore well. Still undecided about the size or which reference I will eventually get but...

a La Tradition of some kind will definitely be joining my collection in the future. It is just an amazing timepiece 🔥

Thank you for this great post
