Last year saw the introduction of the superbly straightforward Breguet Classique 7147 , an exquisite passage level piece with an eye-getting guilloche dial. Presently, Breguet has done the apparently unthinkable, and followed it up with a significantly more refined form. Introducing the new Breguet Classique 7147 “Thousand Feu” Enamel.
The Breguet Classique 7147 “Thousand Feu” Enamel
Before we talk about the new dial be that as it may, we should rapidly recap what makes the Brequet Classique 7147 a particularly incredible dress watch. Introduced in a 40mm x 6.1mm 18k white gold or 18k rose gold case, it’s totally estimated to be worn with formal attire, vanishing under your sleeve as need be. Some may contend that the case is marginally excessively enormous for a dress watch yet for somebody my stature (6ft+) this is just probably hopefully acceptable. Slight however not very meager, comfortable on the wrist and causing barely enough to notice make its quality felt yet without being in your face.
What truly sets this new model separated from a year ago’s rendition obviously, is the new “Amazing Feu” enamel dial. Altogether customary in a literal sense, enameling is gradually becoming to some degree a lost imaginative art, with just few brands ready to guarantee authority of this extremely old procedure. Breguet is obviously one of them and flaunts a few “Stupendous Feu” enamel dial watches across its current collections.
For this new form of the Breguet Classique 7147, refinement is the situation. All unnecessary subtleties have been wiped out, leaving an outstandingly perfect, profoundly alluring dial with that brilliant enamel finish that must be accomplished through numerous firings in a 800°C+ oven. When the dials are prepared, Breguet’s celebrated numerals are carefully positioned over the top, differentiating brilliantly against the smooth whiteness of the enamel beneath.
Hours and minutes are obviously shown by conventional blued steel Breguet hands with a balance open tip, complemented by the little seconds prudently clearing around a 5 o’clock subdial. Instead of putting a different track around the fringe of the sub-dial in any case, Breguet has decided to break it somewhat, making it outwardly obvious from the first glance.
Inside is oneself winding type 502.3 SD, a similar development as the first Breguet Classique 7147 delivered a year ago (just as the Breguet Classique 5140 it supplanted.) Visible through a sapphire caseback, it is furnished with an equilibrium spring in silicon and a rearranged in-line switch escapement with horns made of silicon. Flawlessly got done with a guilloche rotor and Geneva stripes, it offers a 45-hour power reserve.
As you would expect, the new Breguet Classique 7147 “Thousand Feu” Enamel is introduced on a crocodile calfskin lash with a gold pin clasp coordinating the case. Estimating is set at EUR 21,000 in pink gold and EUR 21,500 in white gold.
