Last year saw the presentation of the brilliantly basic Breguet Classique 7147 , an exquisite section level piece with an eye-getting guilloche dial. Presently, Breguet has done the apparently outlandish, and followed it up with a considerably more refined adaptation. Introducing the new Breguet Classique 7147 “Thousand Feu” Enamel.
The Breguet Classique 7147 “Thousand Feu” Enamel
Before we talk about the new dial nonetheless, we should rapidly recap what makes the Brequet Classique 7147 a particularly extraordinary dress watch. Introduced in a 40mm x 6.1mm 18k white gold or 18k rose gold case, it’s totally measured to be worn with formal attire, vanishing under your sleeve as need be. Some may contend that the case is somewhat excessively huge for a dress watch yet for somebody my stature (6ft+) this is just probably hopefully acceptable. Flimsy however not very slender, comfortable on the wrist and causing barely enough to notice make its essence felt yet without being in your face.
What truly sets this new model separated from a year ago’s adaptation obviously, is the new “Stupendous Feu” enamel dial. Altogether customary truly, enameling is gradually becoming fairly a lost creative specialty, with just few brands ready to guarantee dominance of this extremely old method. Breguet is obviously one of them and flaunts a few “Fantastic Feu” enamel dial watches across its current collections.
For this new form of the Breguet Classique 7147, refinement is the situation. All pointless subtleties have been wiped out, leaving a particularly spotless, exceptionally appealing dial with that superb enamel finish that must be accomplished through various firings in a 800°C+ oven. When the dials are prepared, Breguet’s renowned numerals are gently positioned over the top, differentiating wonderfully against the smooth whiteness of the enamel beneath.
Hours and minutes are obviously shown by customary blued steel Breguet hands with a balance open tip, complemented by the little seconds attentively clearing around a 5 o’clock subdial. As opposed to putting a different track around the outskirts of the sub-dial in any case, Breguet has decided to break it marginally, making it outwardly clear 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 an upset in-line switch escapement with horns made of silicon. Wonderfully 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 gator calfskin lash with a gold pin clasp coordinating the case. Valuing is set at EUR 21,000 in pink gold and EUR 21,500 in white gold.
