BASELNEWS 2010La Tradition Breguet 7057
Embodying both a return to the company’s roots and its vision of the future, the Tradition product line now includes a 7057 model with a white gold case 40 mm across. Its unconventional design reveals the details of its hand-wound movement, arrayed on either side of the mainplate. An aperture at ten o’clock in the silvered gold dial, engine-turned by hand, features the bridge of the 50-hour power-reserve indicator.
Its sandblasted finish and symmetrical bridge positions create a cooly understated composition visually enhancing the movement’s various gears and its pare-chute, the shock-protection device invented by Breguet in 1790.
