Dear all Breguet fans, I need your help...

To pick one of these 4 for me smile

Some background info and enquiry:
(1) The hardest thing to me is WG vs YG for these two retro-style timepieces.
(2) I have own 5-6 decent timepieces including IWC, GS, Habring2, as well as Breguet 3817ST. All are steel.
(3) I am approaching 40 next year. An excuse for celebration with a great Breguet. Please forgive me :P
(4) I barely wear suit. I know this maybe critical for the more dressy style's YG...
(5) But I really like the colour gold in these candidates, especially for the silver guilloche dial.
(6) Because I believe YG + guilloche is the original/traditional Breguet style back in Day 1, am I correct?
(7) But wearable is the other factor. I wish to wear it more frequently.
(8) I just afraid YG will attract too much attention if I wear it at casual way?
(9) Any fans wearing Breguet YG in non-dressy style? What do you think?
(10) Most importantly, can you show me the photo? :P
(11) I love both 5707 and 7137. But I can only afford one at this moment. Difficult decision.
(12) So, what is you guys thought? And thank you so much for joining this brainstorming session smile

Thanks much!
Arno

When choosing a metal for the watch, the first thing that comes to my mind is the skin tone of the wearer. If you are caucasian, I would suggest white gold. If you are tanned, Malay or Filipino, I would suggest rose gold as it will blend well with your skin tone. If you are Chinese, I would go for yellow or white gold.  I assume you have tried on both the watches because Breguet's straight lugs would make either watch wear quite large.

All the best in your decision making and happy 40th!!  smile

Thank you for your blessing sham1 :) I am from Hong Kong ^^ [nt]

It’s very much a personal preference, but Breguet in WG and moonphase always appeals to me [nt]

I love its dial lay-out and it is for me a classic.

About the case material, it is a matter of taste:

YG is very consistent with Breguet style
WG is easier to wear in any context...

It is up to you!

This is exactly what I am struggling between the metals now lol Thanks for your input foversta :) [nt]

7137 for me

The blue moon phase makes the dial pop and the date sub-dial is more classic looking than the date window.

Oh you mention about the date window, that also a good point to consider, thanks! [nt]

For me the 7137 in WG hands down. I owned a Reveil du Tsar and although a very lovely watch, for me it was too busy and not the

classic styled Breguet. I love a moon phase also. The WG is easiest to wear and more versatile in my opinion. In WG the watch is very “crisp” and the blue moons looks great against it.

Good luck and whatever you decide you will be well served and I’m sure happy with such a beautiful timepiece. Good luck!

May I know which 5707, in WG or YG or Boutique edition RG you own? Love to see its wrist shot if possible. Thanks much EdTonkin :) [nt]

I owned, past tense, a 5707 but no longer. I’m sorry I don’t have a photo of it. [nt]

Hi Arnohk, what wonderful choices ! My preference would be the 5707 WG, just stunning, but you can't go wrong with any of these :) Happy decisions :) Will [nt]

Congratulations. Fantastic watch.

Either 5707 for me

I love the 7 versions of guilloche and always drawn to the double crowns of an alarm. No bad decisions either way. 

I like the 5707, the 7137 is close to the famous Breguet No.5, but needs an update, I think.

For a moon phase, I would look at the charming 7337 or 7787.

I wear yg, it adds a little class to a dressed-down look. On a strap it's not too much (a yg bracelet is what pushes it over the edge for me). Wg is charming and nice, no wrong choices here!

Just an update for you guys. I went to the Boutique again and try them on wrist...

It seems the 5707 (Guilloche) is a bit more interesting, more popup, more wow-factor to me once I put it on my wrist. Tough one.

To my surprise, 7337 is a bit too "flat" on the dial, and I really not in favor of both day and date windows...

The alarm Yellow Gold. It is superb. I like the color. But regarding the 'wearability', I am struggling...
And one more thing about this piece: It is strange the alarm rings not at the alarm time. It rings at 6:50 while the time is 7:30 when I press the ON button. The staff have to figure it out what's wrong with it...


To be honest, this 7137 is super nice. I like the balance of the dail, and the date presentation style. I am afraid it will be in my wishlist.


But if you ask me to pick only one at this stage (due to budget), the 5707 is the way to die for. The layering and 3D texture of the dial really amazing when looking at the real stuff...


An extra bonus to see this Boutique-only edition. Though I still prefer guilloche dial at this stage.


I suppose I’m a bit biased...
