BASELNEWS 2011Three new versions: The Breguet Tradition 7057
As traditional as it is innovative, Breguet’s Tradition is a visionary model that has now entered the very exclusive circle of iconic Fine Watchmaking creations. Three new versions of this timepiece, which has a 40 mm-diameter case middle, are being introduced in 2011. One has an 18-carat red gold case and a 507DR calibre with red gold-plated finish, the other two have an 18-carat white gold or red gold case housing a movement with a matt grey NAC finish.
This type of surface treatment deposits a charcoal-grey alloy of precious metals from the platinum family by electroplating. Each of these three versions highlights in its own way – whether ultra-modern or more tradition – the technical architecture of this masterpiece of micromechanics; in fact, its construction is unique, as the arrangement on both sides of the central plate shows off almost all of the components – bridges, gears, escapement and the famous “old fashioned” pare-chute shock absorber in hand-bevelled steel.
