The hand made guilloche of the Breguet 5140

The hairline on the white surface of the dial is actually not on the dial.

It is a reflection of an almost invisible scratch on the glass.

Interesting to see how this is going to evolve over the next decades.

Chique class history all in one

Great watch. I like the fact that the seconds hand is slightly off centered and recessed from the main dial. Gives depth

Thanks Nico! [nt]

A classic and timeless pocketwatch for your wrist.

The 5140 really has that feel. Big congrats on this one. A jeweler could clean up that scratch easily.

Thank you, I had no idea about that

Next time I will do a wrist shot, so you'll see how it sits on the wrist. GEO

Breguet seems like the sleeping giant.

Beautiful watch. I think similarly to you insofar as it would have been hard for this watch to capture my attention 15-20 years ago, but now it’s got me. I think a simple thing like the addition of colour (blue) this year to some of the references will br... 

Sleeping giant is the right word

The brand has so much history and so much to offer. I started with the XX, completely different watch, but that one got me into the brand. GEO

That was a decision that took me months

The white dial is amazing too, with the Arabic numerals and I sometimes still think; have I picked the right one. But it was the handmade guilloche that made me decide to go for this version.
