BREGUET – Tradition Automatique Seconde Rétrograde 7097

There are some watches that you never tire of admiring on your wrist, if you’re lucky, or in a window display. Their beauty dazzles us and their mechanism intrigues us. This is certainly the case for the entire Tradition collection and especially this new piece adorned with a small retrograde seconds. Like its ancestors, its dial unveils its self-winding movement’s inner workings (bridges, cogs, escapement and other components) above the plate. Off-centre at 12 o’ clock, a dial with a guilloché heart showcases the hours with Roman numerals and two openwork blue steel Breguet “pomme” hands. A graduated brushed metal semi-circle hovers above the dial: this is the famous retrograde small seconds to which this Tradition model owes its name. The 505SR1 calibre brings to life the time functions from the heart of the 40mm white gold case with finely indented sides. Price upon request
