This new addition to the much-coveted Breguet Classique Grande Complications collection houses the extra-thin self-winding caliber 581, which measures 3mm in thickness. The complex movement features a one-minute tourbillon, whose bar is hand-beveled for added allure, and a silicon balance spring. Thanks to a high-energy barrel with patented construction, the watch is endowed with 80 hours of power reserve. As beautiful on the outside as it is on the inside, its bright white Grand Feu enamel dial has a large tourbillon aperture at 5 o’clock. With Breguet Arabic numerals and Breguet blue-steel hands, it is the epitome of elegance and classic high horology. The 18K rose gold case measures 42mm in diameter and 7.45mm in thickness. Water resistant to 30 meters, it sports a sapphire crystal caseback for viewing of the beautifully decorated movement, with hand-engraved and hand-polished bridges, barrel and an unusual peripheral platinum rotor.
