LA VIE EN ROSE
Added to Breguet’s Classique collection in 2016, the Moon Phase Lady model is dressed in pink, with noble materials and precious stones to celebrate love.
Sometimes, simply holding a watch in the palm of your hand turns into a journey. The Classique Moon Phase Lady 9085, specially designed by Breguet for Saint Valentine’s Day, is, for romantic souls, an invitation to sail down the River Seine, to stroll along the quayside beside tall, elegant buildings and hear Edith Piaf murmuring “La vie en rose” in your ear.
Introduced by the Parisian watchmakers two years ago in the Classique collection, the watch is adorned with a thousand fires and pink reflections to sing a hymn to love. 14 pieces of this watch with a white-gold 30-mm case covered in precious stones will be available, in homage to the mythical date of 14 February. Gradations of pink sapphires (53 in all) married with the dazzle of 13 brilliant-cut diamonds decorate the bezel and horns. These precious stones bring out the iridescent reflections on a dial made of natural mother-of-pearl. At the heart of this opalescent disc arise two blued steel Breguet “moon” tip hands ticking off the hours and minutes.
The silver moon and stars, set on a pink lacquered background and partly hidden by a heart-shaped magnifying glass, discreetly watch the seconds go by.
All the functions of the Classique Phase de Lune Dame 9085 are driven by the calibre 537L, an automatic mechanical movement providing 45 hours of power reserve.
A pink, delicately satin-feel alligator leather strap with a white gold tang buckle set with pink sapphires and diamonds rounds off the sublime effect.
