Classically appealing and contemporarily attractive, Breguet’s haute horological creations combine the experience of years with the panache of the present...

Be effortlessly wooed by the seductive hue of rose-gold as Breguet presents its chic timepiece, Breguet Classique La Musicale 7800 – a divine harmony of elegance and class. This latest offering from the legendary house that celebrates time is a sleek creation with a musical visage. The orbed dial encased in 18 ct rose gold is diamond-polished by hand and magnificently captures the light at different angles. Keeping the melodic mood alive is the case band that is engraved with a musical score. The hands in the traditional open-tipped Breguet style point to the hour chapter represented by Roman numerals. The alligator strap is an earthen brown. A particularly charismatic element of this horological offering is its playing of Badinerie, a composition by Bach, when the clock strikes ten – or at a time set exclusively by you. The dial comes alive with shimmering colours and rotates completely in tune with the music. Breguet’s classic creation resonates gently through time – harmoniously embodying the brand’s strong connect with music, art and culture.

The Marine 5829 Haute Joaillerie Chronograph seamlessly blends the split-second demands of sports performances with exceptional brilliance. Retaining the core features of the Breguet model 5827, its self-winding mechanical movement is housed in a case entirely set with baguette-cut diamonds. Its panache is enhanced by the 186 precious stones that illuminate the case bezel, lugs, frame, pushpieces and crown.The timepiece is a dazzling composition where the date is visible in a dial aperture at 6 o’clock. The baguette-cut sapphires or diamonds enhance the white gold version’s 15-minute sectoral readout, creating a bejewelled effect. Wave-patterned engine-turning and blued, the faceted Breguet hands serve to enrich the dial’s visual effects. Its luxurious appeal is enhanced by its meticulous workmanship. The precious stones have been selected or created with an eye for detail and perfection, lending it a harmony that is in tune with the essence of time.
