Description

The “Tradition” line was launched in 2005, as an interpretation of Abraham-Louis Breguet’s innovative ideas and designs. It is also a tribute to the “Souscription Caliber” which Breguet introduced in 1796. The construction of this iconic movement was simple, robust and practical, with its large central barrel and a going train symmetrically arranged on either side of the barrel.
The harmonious craftsmanship of the layout protects the escapement from serious incidents, even if the watch were to be dropped.

More than two centuries later, this design was revived in the form of a wrist watch, and the symmetry of this mechanical marvel feels as modern, as it looks traditional. That’s the genius of Breguet!
The “Tradition” collection now comprises of both manual-wind and automatic timepieces, with models ranging from a simple time-only to dual-time, retrograde seconds, tourbillon with fusée, independent chronograph and minute repeaters.

 

The present model (Ref: Tradition 7097BB) is a reflection of Breguet’s vision of a practical timepiece. A simple, robust and reliable timepiece, displaying the hours and minutes, along with a retrograde seconds.

This beautiful watch is offered in 18K white gold (coin edge) case measuring 40mm in diameter.
The hours and minutes are displayed in the upper half of the watch-face on a silvered gold guilloche dial with roman numerals and the iconic heat-blued Breguet hands. The retrograde seconds is placed vertically, adjacent to the dial.

Occupying the rest of the dial is the self-winding Calibre 505SR1 featuring a silicon Breguet balance-spring with a 50-hour power-reserve. The main spring barrel takes the center-stage and the going gear train runs under the barrel – all in anthracite black.

This beautiful timepiece comes on a black leather strap with an 18K white gold tang buckle.
