BREGUET – Tradition Dame 7038 Rose Gold

BREGUETTradition Dame 7038 Rose Gold 37mm

Breguet’s Tradition collection welcomes
new self-winding Tradition Dame 7038
model in 18k Rose Gold.

Pre-Baselworld 2017

Breguet is devoting its 2017 pre-Basel launch to women. The House presents a worldwide exclusive glimpse at a new version of its Tradition Dame model, radiantly attired in rose gold.

The cutting-edge Tradition collection from Breguet belongs to the select circle of authentic Haute Horlogerie icons. First introduced in 2005, the Tradition collection has steadily expanded to include a palette of exceptional models now enriched by the rose gold Tradition Dame. With this self-winding timepiece, Breguet has succeeded in feminising a model whose aesthetic essence lies in mechanical horology, a field that many tend to reserve for men.

Clearly visible front and centre of the watch, the barrel is decorated with a rosette motif and overlapped at 12 o’clock by a dainty offset dial in natural white mother-of-pearl, finely adorned with hand-crafted engine-turned “Clou de Paris” hob nailing. Although in full view, the main movement gear trains, as well as the bridges bearing them, remain sufficiently discreet to ensure smooth and instant reading of the hours and minutes pointed by rose gold open-tipped Breguet hands.

The sandblasted mainplate and bridges are rhodium-plated to create a pleasing contrast with the rose gold case. The latter is set on its bezel with 68 brilliant-cut diamonds, while a watch jewel sets the perfect finishing touch on the crown. The magnificent craftsmanship lavished on this model is also visible through the back on the gold oscillating weight, graced with the same motif as the barrel.

Equipped with Calibre 505SR, it features a lever escapement with silicon pallets and a Breguet balance-spring also made of silicon.
