We thought we’d continue the dials with off-centred features theme of the previous post with one about the new Breguet Classique Tourbillon Extra-Plat Automatic 5367.
Debuting in 2013, this reference, a svelte automatic tourbillon, introduced its first grand feu enamel dial, in white, in 2018. Now, Breguet add a deep dark blue enamel dial to the mix.
The dial, like its predecessor, is the result of the application of blue shades of enamel in multiple thin layers to a gold dial, firing it in a furnace at 800º C, and hand-polishing it to its desired colour and finishing.
This new blue model features the same elements as the other variants – the vintage-styled applied Breguet Arabic numerals, powdered silver indicators, open-tipped Breguet hands, and the off-centered tourbillon carriage in titanium that also displays the small seconds.
Inside the 41mm sized platinum case (7.45mm thick), with its fluted case band and straight, welded lugs, is the automatic Calibre 581. At 3mm thick, it is Breguet’s thinnest tourbillon movement, and has 334 components. With a platinum rotor, and in contrast to the minimalism of the dial side, it is notable for the decorative flourishes on the bridges and plates. It beats at 28,800 VPH and has a power reserve of 80 hours.
The Breguet Classique Tourbillon Extra-Plat Automatique 5367 with blue grand feu dial comes on a dark blue alligator leather strap with a platinum triple-folding clasp. The watch is available exclusively at Breguet boutiques.
In a related note, you may also recall that last year, they released the Classique Ref. 5711 with blue grand feu enamel dial.
