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

Abraham-Louis Breguet invented the various mechanisms essential to a wristwatch, as well as the design parts such as Breguet hands and Breguet numerals during the pocket watch era.

He is also known for inventing complex mechanisms such as tourbillons and perpetual calendars.

About 70% of the mechanism installed in modern wristwatches is said to have been invented and improved by Abraham-Louis Breguet, and is also described as "Leonardo da Vinci in the watch world".

Abraham-Louis Breguet's watches have been praised in every court in Europe, with customers such as Queen Marie Antoinette and Napoleon Bonaparte.

Currently, we continue to make luxury watches as the highest brand of the Swatch Group.

"Classic" is a collection inspired by the works of the brand when it was born.

Classic collection watches are packed with all the elements that characterize Breguet.

The guilloche carving on the dial, the coin edge decoration on the side of the case, the Breguet hands, and the design are just like the charm of the brand.

In addition to the beautiful round form, it is a watch that has both artistry and functionality, such as a simple, lean and sophisticated atmosphere, visibility, and high functionality.

This Ref.BB 5917 has a case made of 18K white gold and a size of 34mm, which is a standard size for a dress watch. The size is such that women can use it without any discomfort.

The current lineup is one or two times larger, so this feeling of size is valuable.

The crown is engraved with the Breguet B mark.

The above coin edge decoration is also a big feature, but the lug part is also different from other watch brands. The strap is screwed instead of a spring bar. The

dial is made of 18K gold as well as the case, and all are guilloché engraved.

Around 12:00, a secret sign is engraved thinly to prevent counterfeit products.

The largest area is a pyramid-like pattern called Cour de Paris, and the index part is satin touch.

If you look closely, there are parts where the pattern is slightly different, and it is the part where you can feel the artistry of the watch brand, which is also called a craft.

The great thing about Breguet is that this carving is not done by a fully automatic machine, but by a craftsman using a manual machine. The

movement is equipped with a self-winding Cal.591. It is a machine with many adjustments
based on Lemania's caliber.

Breguet and Lemania have a deep connection, dating back to the 1940s. And in 2003 Lemania was integrated with Breguet and is now the Breguet Manufacture.

This watch has a see-through back on the back of the case, and you can see the movement that has been finished in every detail.

In particular, the 21K gold rotor is a specification unique to ultra-luxury brands. This rotor also has a guilloche carving, and it is no exaggeration to say that it is a craft to be attached to the arm.

A genuine white gold buckle is attached to the black leather strap.

Overhauled. The case is light polished.
