Introduced in 2017 with a white enamel dial and thermally blued hands, the Classique Tourbillon Extra-Plat Automatique 5367 by Breguet is presently accessible in another rendition portrayed by a dark blue enamel dial.
Past giving improvement to the dial, enamel work is a particular specialty that requires incredible aptitude just as meticulousness and persistence.
Blue or dark enamels are among the most difficult to create on the grounds that more obscure tones uncover even the smallest blemish. Just not many experienced and gifted craftsmans are skilled to dominate this deep rooted measure that has been applied to horology since the Renaissance remaining for all intents and purposes unaltered after some time. Today, Breguet keeps this craftsmanship bursting at the seams with a workshop completely committed to enameling.
The enamel is applied with a brush to the gold dial while still wet, in a dainty and steady layer. It is then warmed in a heater at a temperature higher than 800°C.
The eventual outcome is gotten by adding a few layers of enamel until the ideal tone is reached. The unique tone of the new watch is a mix of various blue subtleties. After a delicate cleaning, the dial is put in the heater one final opportunity to accomplish the special splendor commonplace of this method.
Contrasting the blue foundation, the moon-tipped hands made of rhodium-plated steel ensure wonderful readability while they clear around a part ring bearing silvered Arabic numerals, stars, precious stone shapes and fleur-de-lis.
Simply over the tourbillon carriage, it is conceivable to find the popular mystery signature that Abraham-Louis Breguet previously presented in 1795 as an assurance of legitimacy (you can peruse the historical backdrop of the Maison Breguet here ).
The 41 mm x 7.45 mm platinum case with fluted caseband and welded hauls houses the 581 type, Breguet’s most slender tourbillon development at only 3 mm of thickness.
Put somewhere in the range of 4 and 6 o’clock, the tourbillon is housed in a titanium carriage that includes a made-to-quantify escapement and a silicon Breguet balance spring wavering at a recurrence of 4 Hz (28,800 vibrations each hour) with an amazing self-governance of 80 hours because of its high-energy barrel, an idea licensed by Breguet.
Coordinated to a blue gator cowhide lash, the new Breguet Classique Tourbillon Extra-Plat Automatique 5367 (ref. 5367PT/2Y/9WU) is accessible solely at Breguet shops with a cost of Euro 159,900. breguet.com
