Breguet recently presented a special Boutique Edition of its classic Tradition 7038 for Ladies. Adorned with iridescent Tahitian mother-of-pearl and an orange leather strap, this new Tradition model offers a contemporary reinterpretation of the unique aesthetic conceived by founder Abraham-Louis in the late 18th century. The watch is immediately recognizable for its off-center dial inspired by Breguet’s tact watches.
The balance wheel with a hairspring – the oscillating heart of the watch – takes its place between 4 and 5 o’clock under a bridge protected by a pare-chute anti-shock mechanism, invented by Breguet in 1790.
Opposite, between 7 and 8 o’clock, the center wheel and its bridge perfectly mirror the Breguet balance wheel, with identical dimensions. In golden hues, the central barrel, decorated with a rosette motif, and the wheels of the movement contrast with the deep brown and finely sandblasted bridges and mainplate. A diamond-set bezel adds sparkle to the creation, which is completed with a striking strap in orange leather.
The 37 mm x 11.85 mm rose gold case with fluted caseband is enriched by a sparkling bezel set with 68 brilliant-cut diamonds (approx. 0.895 ct). The winding crown is set with a ruby (approx. 0.16 ct). It offers water-resistance up to a pressure of 3 bar (30 metres / 100 feet).
The sapphire-crystal caseback reveals the self-winding Breguet 505SR caliber that beats at a frequency of 3 Hz (21,600 vibrations per hour) with a power reserve of 50 hours. Its gold rotor, embellished with a rosette guilloché motif, echoes the decoration of the barrel on the dial.
The welded lugs, which are slightly rounded at the edges, provide a holding place for the orange calfskin leather bracelet. The Breguet Tradition 7038 Boutique Edition (ref. 7038BR/CT/3V6 D00D) is presented with an elegant matching orange clutch bag fashioned from grained calfskin leather and equipped with a clasp that echoes the rosette pattern on the barrel of the Tradition 7038 watch.
