Breguet presents its new 2019 collection
In 2019, the Classique Grandes Complications line is embellished with the Classique Tourbillon Extra-Plat 5395 timepiece, with an entirely skeletonized movement. An undertaking that is as much technical as it is artistic with emphasis on craftsmanship, of which the watchmaker is at the forefront. The Classique collection unveils new feminine variations featuring a mother-of-pearl dial, and a masculine model presenting the Breguet blue for the first time in a grand feu enamel dial.
The House of Breguet also dedicates a new Marine collection to modern-day women explorers, inspired by our oceans. As one of several details echoing the marine world appears a new guilloche pattern, called marea, capturing the natural movement of the water. The artisans of the Manufacture have made this demanding design come alive on mother-of-pearl, a particularly fragile material, which graces the dial and rotor of the movement for this collection.
Reinterpreted with a contemporary touch, the Reine de Naples features two new colorful creations. The first one is adorned with a blue-lacquered dial and a matching denim strap. Reminiscent of a starry sky, this dial stands out thanks to a deep-blue lacquer with turquoise blue scrolls.
To achieve this effect, the artisan would place a touch of clear lacquer on still-liquid dark material. The second model is enhanced with a touch of crimson. The Breguet Arabic numerals appear in garnet on the white mother-of-pearl hours chapter. The alligator leather strap reflects this vibrant hue.
