-Description


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

A.-L. Breguet invented various mechanisms essential to wristwatches as well as design elements such as Breguet hands and Breguet numerals in the pocket watch era.

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

About 70% of the mechanisms used in modern wristwatches were invented or improved by him, who is often described as the "Leonardo da Vinci of the watchmaking".

His timepieces were admired at all European courts, and his clients included Queen Marie-Antoinette of France and Napoleon Bonaparte.

Today, as the premier brand of the Swatch Group, Breguet continues to make luxury timepieces.

The "Classique" collection was inspired by the brand's original creations.

The timepieces of the collection contain all the elements that characterise Breguet.

The guilloche engraving on the dial, the coin-edged decoration on the sides of the case, and the Breguet hands are the essence of the brand's appeal.

In addition to its beautiful round form, the watch is both artistic and functional, with a simple, lean and sophisticated atmosphere, high legibility, and high functionality.

This Ref.3150 has an 18K white gold case.

The diameter is 32.5mm, and together with its thinness, it has a modest presence that is typical of a dress watch.

It is a size that women can use without discomfort.

A sapphire is attached to the tip of the crown.

The coin-edged decoration mentioned above is a major feature of this watch, but the lugs are also different from those of other watch brands. The strap is screwed on instead of spring-loaded.

The dial, like the case, is made of 18K gold and is entirely guilloché.

The largest area is a pyramid-like pattern called the Clous de Paris, and the indexes have a satin touch.

If you look closely, you can see subtle differences in the patterns, and this is where you can best appreciate the brand's artistry, also known as craftsmanship.

Breguet's greatness lies in the fact that this engraving is not done by a fully automatic machine, but by a craftsman using a manual machine.

The movement is a hand-wound Cal. 839.

It is based on JLC Cal. 839.

This ultra-thin movement was created in 1975 and is only 1.84 mm thick.

Its successor, Cal.849, is considered the thinnest hand-wound movement currently in production.

Besides Breguet, this movement was also supplied to Chopard, IWC, and Van Cleef & Arpels.

We have obtained a certificate of production date and delivery address record for this watch at Breguet.

This is not provided in document, so we are sending you the contents of an email.

It comes with a black leather strap and genuine Breguet buckle in white gold.
