-Description

Breguet is a long-established watch brand founded in 1775 by Abraham-Louis Breguet, known as a genius watchmaker.

During the pocket watch era, Abraham-Louis Breguet invented various mechanisms essential to wristwatches, as well as design elements such as Breguet hands and Breguet numerals.

He is also known for inventing complications such as the tourbillon and the perpetual calendar.

Classique is a collection inspired by works from the time the brand was born.

The watches of the Classique collection contain all the elements that characterize Breguet.

The guilloche engraving on the dial, the coin edge decoration on the side of the case, and the Breguet hands are all part of the charm of the brand.

This Reference 3290 is a slightly small watch with a case size of 32mm. The size is such that women can use it without discomfort.

The crown is capped with a cabochon-cut sapphire.

The dial is silver-plated guilloche engraved dial.

The most distinctive feature is that the Roman numerals are arranged tilted in the index part. Also, it is very unusual that the index part is independent.

Most of the guilloché engraving has a hobnail pattern called the "Clous de Paris", and the small seconds part is decorated with a wave-like pattern.

If you look closely, there are parts with a hairline finish, and there are parts with slightly different patterns, which is the part where you can most feel the artistry of the watch brand, which is also called a craft.

Breguet's greatness is that this carving is not a fully automatic machine, but a craftsman carving it with a manual machine.

Also, although it is a very detailed part, the notation below 6 o'clock is "SWISS GUILLOCHE MAIN", which is a rare detail.

The movement is equipped with a manual wind Cal.818/4.

A Jaeger-LeCoultre low-beat movement, this thin was used by Vacheron Constantin and Audemars Piguet as well as Breguet.

It is characterized by its light "tick-tock" winding feel when wound.

A genuine Breguet YG buckle is attached to the black leather strap.
