Breguet presents a new diamond-set version of its Tradition watch.
The spectacular mechanical timepieces from the Tradition line are contemporary interpretations of the subscription watches designed by Abraham-Louis Breguet, and particularly noted for the architecture of their fully symmetrical caliber. Now, Breguet completes its iconic line with a limited edition model adorned with diamonds.
Limited to 88 timepieces, the new Tradition 7035 by Breguet bears all the characteristics of the prestigious watch collection, including the offset dial, housed here at 12 o’clock. It boasts a natural white mother-of-pearl hours chapter, which affords a clear view of the fully exposed movement.
The movement is set around the central barrel, indicated by its rosette motif, by harmoniously placed traditional bridges, wheels, pare-chute, and balance wheel. Certifying its expertise in gem-set watches, Breguet combines this new creation with the finesse of jewellery, opting for the snow-setting technique.
The 18-carat gold chosen for the dial, plate and bridges are all set with different-sized diamonds in order to keep the visible material to a minimum. The bezel of the watch is set with 68 brilliant-cut diamonds.
For the retrograde seconds indicator, the Maison opted for a gradient of rubies and pink sapphires, which recall both the rubies on the movement and the one housed upon the crown. A leather strap in the same colours completes this new timepiece.
Equipped with the Caliber 505J, the Tradition 7035 timepiece features a lever escapement with silicon horns and a Breguet balance spring of the same material. Through the transparent sapphire crystal caseback, this self-winding calibre can be viewed. Its rotor in gold is adorned with the barrel motif.
