The Breguet Classique 5317 is an automatic tourbillon wristwatch with a power reserve display.
Unveiled at Baselworld 2005, this high-complication timepiece features a 39mm diameter case made of yellow gold, rose gold or platinum. Inside it beats the Breguet Self-winding Cal. 587DR, which drives the central hours and minutes, the tourbillon at 6 o’clock and the power-reserve indicator at 12 o’clock.
The Breguet Classique 5317 comes with a gold dial engine-turned by hand in a conventional hobnail pattern. The subdial of the power-reserve indicator is aligned in perfect symmetry with the tourbillon and is engine-turned in a wave pattern in the purest tradition of Breguet’s watchmaking art.
The beauty of the self-winding mechanical tourbillon movement, entirely engraved by hand, can be admired through the transparent caseback.
The yellow gold Breguet Classique 5317 watch is fitted with an alligator leather strap or yellow gold bracelet. The Classique Tourbillon Et Réserve De Marche is also available in white gold and platinum versions.
