Endowed with a 41 mm round case in either rose gold or platinum, the Breguet Classique Tourbillon Extra-Flat ref. 5367 is one of the most exquisite timepieces released by this manufacture in the past couple of years. Its ultra slender case measuring less than 8 mm in thickness —7.45 mm to be precise—, makes this watch one of the thinnest tourbillons in the market. Cloaked in white with a grand feu enamel dial with the classic Breguet numerals and the iconic blued steel Breguet hands, the tourbillon opening takes the center stage in a unconventional position between 4 and 5 o’clock. Rounded out by a dark brown alligator strap, this watch is as dressy as it gets.
Things to Know About the Watch
When it comes to tourbillons, who else other than Breguet to master the art of tourbillon making. Founded by Abraham-Louis Breguet also known as the father of the tourbillon, Breguet has been mastering tourbillons since its invention in 1795. The Classique Tourbillon Extra-Flat ref. 5367 features all the design codes that Breguet is know for including the fluted caseband, the Breguet hands and the Breguet numerals.
On this particular watch, the tourbillon features a titanium carriage and small seconds indicator on the tourbillon axis. Making a full rotation every minute, the tourbillon rises in all glory like an eye that serves as a window to the soul of the timepiece.
The beating heart inside this magnificent timepiece is the Breguet extra-thin automatic movement with tourbillon calibre 581 that is fully visible via the display case back. Composed of 334 parts, this 33-jewel movement with silicon balance spring and peripheral oscillating weight in platinum, provides an outstanding power reserve of 80 hours when fully wound. The movement is decorated with hand engravings throughout and with jewels in olive-domed chatons.
