Last time we recommend Ulysse Nardin watch for you and this time we recommend another watch to you.Breguet’s passed down series has grown and changed over the past ten years. The 7027 manual has been replaced by a 7057 with display functions and a 7067 with dual time functions. And the 7037 automatic has become a second-hand. Today’s protagonist will discuss the 797 bounce function and the 757 calendar bounce function.
The Breguet Heirloom series’ design inspiration is a perfect continuation of the pre-determined pocket watch that Mr. Breguet invented. Pre-ordering pocket watches is a process where customers pay 25% of the deposit and the rest when the watch is made and delivered. The launch date for the pocket watch is 1796. The mainspring barrel is located in the middle of the pocket watch. It is fixed by a cantilevered spine. Both the balance wheel and second wheel are symmetrical. The two splints, which are located on either side of the mainspring barrel are mirror images. This movement architecture reflects Mr. Breguet’s neoclassical aesthetics, as well as the simplicity of the structure, reliability, and ease of mass production. The predetermined pocket watch of Mr. Breguet was able to respond perfectly to the volatile market during the French Revolution’s later periods. This was due to its superior sales technique and outstanding movement performance.
Breguet’s hand-crafted series is so stunning that it is almost impossible to copy it. Breguet restores the charm and charm of the pocket watch perfectly, while also using the most recent technology to enhance this charm. Shot peening is the first step in the surface treatment for all plywoods from the hand-crafted series watches. Shot peening refers to the application of small, granular pieces of ceramic or metal material at high speeds onto the metal surface. This is done to give the metal a smooth, matte surface that has a rich texture and uniform texture. Breguet will then chamfer the plywood’s edges according to its shape and function after the shot peening process. The fine beaded finish of the Breguet at the back of the Spilt is also available.
This watch is not only beautiful in appearance but also features the most recent watchmaking technology. This series is not only made of silicon hairspring but also features Breguet’s exclusive upper-winding silicon headspring. The upper-winding hairspring can be described as a simple hairspring. The inner end is attached to the inner pile and the outer end is placed on the outer pile after it has been bent and wound. While it is more common to wind up metal hairsprings, silicon hairsprings, which are integrally formed using photolithography, cannot be wound up. Breguet created the upper winding by splicing 2 sections of hairsprings to keep the tradition. Breguet can’t tell you how to make sure the hairspring doesn’t get damaged after adding a joint. The hairspring was also reproduced by Mr. Breguet, who also created the “parachute”, a shock absorber that is more elegant than the pocket watch.
Oblvlo Phantom Designer Skeleton Automatic Watches-VM-YWY
Opel’s phantom series Men’s Watches is a reflection of illusion art using mirrors. The magnifier design of the sapphire mirror makes hollowed-out characters interesting and colorful. Under the magnifying mirror is the unique balance wheel for the mechanical movement. French romance and unruly are both in it.
Women are more aware of watches and wearing them when on the road is becoming more popular. Last time we recommend Jaeger-LeCoultre watch,this time we recommend another three watches.This can show their softness and gentleness, as well as highlight their individual taste and charm. We all know that women are “visual animals”, and can see all things. Watches are not an exception. Major watchmaking companies have released a number of women’s watches this year. Each one is more beautiful than the others, making them difficult to resist. We will be presenting a selection of high-end and expensive ladies watches. They are beautiful, even though they are very expensive.
Breguet Queen Of Naples 8938BB/8D/964/DD0D
Breguet was commissioned by Queen of Naples in 1810 to create a watch for her. The first Breguet Queen Of Naples series, launched in 2002, was inspired by this watch. This iconic design element of the Breguet Queens of Naples watch’s goose egg-shaped case is easily recognizable. The Queen of Naples 8938 watch is shown in this picture. It features an 18K Gold goose egg-shaped case, with diamonds, and a delicately snow-inlaid dial. The watch’s 6 o’clock position features an unusual natural white mother of pearl hour scale ring. It is full-bright and adds a gentle elegance to the watch.
Patek Philippe Complication Timepiece Series 7130R-014
Patek Philippe presented 12 new timepieces at this year’s Haute Horlogerie Exhibition “Watches and Miracles”. The 7130R-014 rose-gold world time watch was my favorite. It is hard to resist this watch, even though I have seen many green watches over the past two years. There are many green watches on the market, but only a few high-end watches. many. The watch Patek Philippe chose an elegant and modern olive green dial color. It also has an 18k rosegold case which gives a new visual experience. The dial’s center is decorated with a beautiful hand-engraved basket weaving pattern. This pays tribute to rare craftsmanship. Olive green is used to design the city disc, which makes it easy for white letters to be read. Rose gold-diamond-shaped hands and three-dimensional hour markers in arrow-shaped shapes indicate the local time. These markers correspond to the 12 o’clock position on the disc. The elegant bezel is adorned with 62 Top Wesselton Diamonds.

The 34mm Love Luthier Women Watch can show off your style and personality without any complicated functions. Double-arched design is used in the Love bezel. This allows for the watch to look great even on a small wrist. A steel case is available for the watch. The steel bezel is included in the case. A Reef Tiger RT7500 Automatic Movement controls the display. The watch is secured by a Steel Bracelet with Deployment bucket with double buttons. Waterproof up to 50 meters
ART AND MATTER
This sturdy chronograph, which takes its inspiration from aviator watches, has become lighter in this series providing unrivaled comfort for any occasion. Its cutting-edge mechanism is still a point of reference.
Launched by Breguet in 2011, the Type XXI Titanium is part of the Type XX collection created in the middle of the 20th century for the French naval air army. Although the qualities of this series are clear to see, this chronograph stands out for its minute counter measured using a central hand. With the ability to measure short and long periods of time, it does so using the second hand and 12-hour counter at 6 o’clock. For speed while using the stopwatch, the watch has a flyback function. Simply pressing the pusher at 4 o’clock instantly resets the counters to zero. Without this device, three steps would be necessary to operate the reset. In addition to the time information, luminescent hands and index markers, this model has a day/night indicator at 3 o’clock, a small seconds dial at 9 o’clock and a date located in a window at 6 o’clock. This easy-to-read layout, positioned on a black dial, is crowned with a black bidirectional rotating lacquered titanium bezel decorated with raised numerals.
Within the 42 mm titanium case, water resistant to 100m, is the 584 Q caliber. This self-winding movement provides a power reserve of around 45 hours.
The Type XXI Titanium comes with a stylish calf leather strap. The manufacture is also offering a strap made from the same material as the case to reinforce the sporty look of this edition.

DANCE OF THE SIRENS
Inspired by the blue waves of the sea, the Marine collection for women welcomes new models made of gold or steel, some topped with a band of diamonds, and with guilloched mother-of-pearl or blue lacquered faces.
Around two centuries ago, a few years after opening his business on Quai de l’Horloge, Paris, Abraham-Louis Breguet (1747-1823) became Watchmaker to the French Royal Navy, a prestigious title which was the crowning achievement of his many works, in particular in chronometers and maritime clocks. With the rich heritage left by its founder, the current manufacture, now based in the heart of the Joux Valley, has been inspired to create a collection named Marine including some pieces dedicated to women. This year, the Marine Dame welcomes new timepieces, all equipped with the 591A automatic caliber which offers a power reserve of 38 hours.
Since the guilloched pattern is a specialty of Breguet, the white or blue mother-of-pearl dials which form the pieces made of gold include the exclusive “marea” pattern, a decoration inspired by the undulation of the waves. Three applied Roman numerals connected by beaded minute markers surround this miniature hand-sculpted sea. These are passed over by the Breguet moon-tip hands coated with Super-LumiNova® displaying the hours, minutes and seconds, the counterweight of the latter takes the shape of a nautical flag. At 3 o’clock, a trapezoidal-shaped window displays the date. With the steel versions, the dial comes in white iridescent mother-of-pearl or covered in azure blue lacquer which resembles the light sparkling on the surface of the water.
The Marine Dame comes with a white or blue alligator strap, or a white rubber strap decorated with strands of aquatic plants.

With this splendid series, Breguet truly demonstrates its expertise in fine watchmaking and craftsmanship.
A masterpiece in the fine watchmaking arena since 2014, the Classique Tourbillon Extra-Plat by Breguet continues to build on its leading position. After developing variations in the dial, the brand is playing its ace by unveiling a series which, this time, does not feature this component. The Classique Tourbillon Extra-Plat Squelette 5395 is a masterstroke. The rose gold or platinum case with a diameter of 41 mm and a depth of 7.70 mm houses an openwork version of the 581 calibre just 3 mm thick. To reach their goal, the Breguet watchmakers have made several adjustments. The gold plate and bridges have been hollowed out to highlight the mechanical architecture. The oscillating weight has been moved to the outer edge. And to free up space, the silicon escapement has been transformed with a special construction. The regulating organ has also been given a complete design overhaul. Including its cage, it only weighs 0.290 g.

THE DAZZLING BREGUET BLUE
The new work from the Breguet workshops features a dial made of “Grand Feu” enamel in a beautiful, deep and intense blue colour. It pays homage to the aesthetic traditions created by the brand’s founder, while slightly changing the rules of the game.
While the watchmaking trend of the times favoured the ornamental – sometimes outrageously so – the watches by Abraham-Louis Breguet (1747-1823) stood out through the work on the mechanism and the pride of place given to technique and practicality. He rid his watch cases and dials of all excessive ornament to focus on the essential: time. His approach gave rise to the Breguet watchmakers’ specific design method, which is still preserved by the Breguet brand. One of the ambassadors of the simple style is without doubt the Classique collection, especially the new Classique 5177 Grand Feu Blue Enamel model. With a slightly more rebellious style than its elders, it respects the brand’s visual signature while making it its own.

ROYALTY IN ROSE
A few weeks away from Valentine’s Day, the dial on the flagship model in Breguet’s ladies collections comes dressed in rose mother-of-pearl with delicate purple tones to celebrate the most beautiful and exciting of all emotions
Is love a feeling, an emotion, a state of mind… or all three? You probably have to have experienced it at least once in your life to try to define it. If love is present in the heart of a person, a couple of a family, then one date is especially important: 14 February, Saint Valentine’s Day. The tradition begun in English-speaking countries has now spread across the world and millions of people celebrate it. Breguet is also taking part with a new version of the Reine de Naples 8905 model made in just 28 pieces.
This collection launched in 2002 shares many of the features of the very first wrist-watch designed in 1812 by Abraham-Louis Breguet (1747-1823) for Caroline Murat (1782-1839), the sister of Napoleon (1769-1821) and Queen of Naples (Reine de Naples in French). The Saint Valentine 2019 model is oval has a fluted white-gold case and a bezel highlighted by a stream of 128 diamonds. The watch case is 28.45 x 36.50mm. The sapphire glass caseback unveils the calibre 537DRL2, an automatic movement providing 45 hours of power reserve.
The mechanism is perfect and the dial is a wonder for the eyes. The rose mother-of-pearl gives rise to dazzling rainbow effects with mauve predominating. The hour and minute hands, with two blued steel Breguet “moon” tip hands, are set at the centre of a guilloché disc. At 7 o’clock is an engraved seconds sub-dial. The upper part of the dial contains the moon phase with the queen of the night and the stars made of white gold against a bright pink disc, along with a power reserve indicator.
The Reine de Naples 8905 Saint Valentine 2019 is worn with a mauve alligator leather strap.

This model perpetuates the tradition of expertise at Breguet. Noble materials set off a flagship complication providing crystal-clear chimes whenever you wish.
The minute repeater, a complication first developed in the 18th century, tells you what time it is without you having to looking at the watch and even in the dark. How does it work? A press on a dedicated monopusher launches a sound mechanism with three different tones. The watch then chimes the hour, the quarter hour and the minutes. So when it is 2.37, you will hear two deep chimes, followed by two tones with a different sound and finally seven higher-pitched chimes. The world has changed a good deal since its invention, but this watch complication still symbolises excellence and is a much sought-after prize among fans of luxury watches. The complication is only made by a handful of firms, including Breguet, which is perpetuating expertise developed by the brilliant French-based watchmaker of the same name. The Classique Grande Complication 7637 epitomises this tradition. On the dial, we find all the brand’s signature elements, such as the blued “moon” tip hands above a hand-engraved silver guilloché dial with a chapter ring featuring Roman numerals. Two time indications round off the display: at 3 o’clock, a 24-hour disc with a day/night indicator, and at 9 o’clock, a running seconds sub-dial.
Turning the watch over, you can see the hand-decorated and engraved hand-wound movement through the sapphire caseback (40 hours of power reserve).

KINGDOM OF MOTHER-OF-PEARL AND DIAMONDS
The new, majestic and elegant Reine de Naples watch was first presented a few months ago. It features all the femininity of the Breguet collections with an oval body and a mother-of-pearl dial delicately enhanced by two rows of diamonds.
In 1808, Caroline Murat, nee Bonaparte (1782-1839), the younger sister of the Emperor Napoleon (1769-1821), became Queen of Naples (Reine de Naples in French). Two years later, she commissioned her official watchmaker, Abraham-Louis Breguet (1747-1823), to make one of the world’s first wrist watches. The timepiece was paid for in 1811 and delivered to the queen in 1812, according to the carefully preserved archives at the Breguet Museum in Paris. It was oblong in shape and included a strap plaited with golden threads. Although the watch itself disappeared sometime in the 19th century, a description of it inspired the brand based in L’Abbaye, Switzerland, to create a collection in 2002. The Reine de Naples 8908 has been added to the collection this year.
The new model, like its illustrious predecessor, has an oval silhouette made of rose gold and measures 36.50 by 28.45mm. As in many Breguet models, the watch case is lined with fine fluting. A winder crowned with a cabochon ruby could be found at 4 o’clock. Two rows of diamonds, with a total of 129 gems, cover the bezel and chapter ring. This is the precious for the calibre 537DRL2, an automatic movement providing 45 hours of power reserve and partially visible through the sapphire crystal.
The watch dial is also oval in shape and covered in Tahiti mother-of-pearl, beautifully reflecting the rows of sparkling diamonds. A golden guilloché disc takes up a large part of the dial and includes hour markers featuring black Roman numerals and a couple of Breguet blued steel “moon” tip hands. Near 6.30 is a small seconds sub-dial, decorated like a nautilus shell. The upper part of the dial opens onto a fan-shaped moon-phase counter, along with a power reserve indicator with a fine blue hand.

EXCELLENCE IN MOVEMENT
Like the other watches in the Tradition collection, this model’s design takes inspiration from a subscription watch with a visible mechanism made by the great watchmaking firm in the 18th century.
With the Tradition 7027, launched in 2005, Breguet opened up a new line of watches all equipped with a special feature: the mechanism can be seen above the watch plate, resulting in a strong visual impact. The attractions of the Tradition GMT 7067 are maintained through the unique architecture of the mechanism, so that the main components are all visible, including the balance wheel at 4 o’clock. The watch is not only beautiful to look at, but is practical too, with a second time zone. A guilloché silver disc at 12 o’clock is home to the traditional blue “moon tip” Breguet hands, making their way around an hour rim with Roman numerals. This is where local time is shown. A second area, offset at 8 o’clock, is dedicated to the reference time. A silvered day/night indicator is placed above, so the owner can keep track of time during trips from one continent to another.
When you are on your travels, the Tradition GMT 7067 is worn with an alligator leather strap matching all elegant styles.
