BASELNEWS 2011In 18-carat yellow and white gold: The Breguet 5177 watch
The 5177 watch is among those models steeped in the classicism and tradition of which only Breguet holds the secret. Formerly existing only in 18-carat yellow and white gold, it is now being introduced in a red gold version. Newly clad in this warm-toned precious substance, it naturally preserves all of the sophisticated elements expected in a timepiece from the Breguet Classique collection: a fluted case middle with a transparent back; soldered strap lugs; a silvered solid-gold dial that is available with hand-engraved guilloché in a cross weave motif or in grand feu enamel; and blued steel Breguet hands decorated with the characteristic “eccentric moon tip.”
Technically speaking, this watch still has simple, useful functions such as a seconds in the centre and the date, which are driven by the 777 self-winding mechanical calibre with silicon lever and escapement wheel. It cannot fail to remind us of the point to which Breguet remains the perfect union of traditional beauty and advanced technology.
