One of the most classic looking watches released this Baselworld 2017 is the new Breguet Classique Moonphase ref. 7787 with 'Grand Feu' enamel dial. This timepiece along with the ref. 7147 we featured here, are the two latest 'Grand Feu' enamel dial watches from Breguet. Featuring a 39 mm case in 18K white gold with the traditional fluted caseband, a signature element of Breguet timepieces and a dial in 'Grand Feu' enamel, the new Breguet Classique Moonphase ref. 7787 is as elegant as it gets.
Things You Need to Know
Also available in 18K rose gold with silvered gold dial, the new Breguet Classique Moonphase ref. 7787 features a 'Grand Feu' enamel dial just like that on the ref. 7147. The dial features Arabic numerals in the traditional Breguet typeface, an upside down moonphase indicator with age of the moon at 12 o'clock and a power reserve indicator between 3 and 6 o'clock. With a somewhat busy layout, the power reserve indicator is more prominent than the moonphase indicator and an element that takes the center stage in a way that we really dislike.
The new Breguet Classique Moonphase ref. 7787 features the traditional elements present on all other Breguet timepieces with a fluted case band, an alligator strap with folding clasp and the secret signatures on its dial.
The new Breguet Classique Moonphase ref. 7787 'Grand Feu' Enamel Dial is powered by the Breguet automatic calibre 591 DRL composed of 217 parts and 25 jewels and which provides a relatively short power reserve of only 38 hours. The movement is fully visible via the display case back and nicely decorated with 'Côtes de Genève' and an oscillating weight with barleycorn hand guilloché motif.
On the Wrist & Price
On the wrist, the new Breguet Classique Moonphase ref. 7787 'Grand Feu' Enamel Dial wears true to its size and extremely elegant. A watch that is somewhat busy when it comes to its dial layout but that is very classic and timeless in terms of looks. Also available in 18K rose gold with silvered gold dial, the new Breguet Classique Moonphase ref. 7787 'Grand Feu' Enamel Dial is the perfect watch for those that choose to wear a suit every day of the week.
