Breguet celebrates this year’s Valentine’s Day with the new Classique Phase de Lune with a white mother-of-pearl dial sprinkled with rubies.
The mother-of-pearl dial of the Classique Phase de Lune 9085 Valentine’s Day watch is adorned with a very fine guilloché pattern, hand-crafted by the artisans of the Manufacture. Breguet numerals alternate with six rubies to display the passing of time on the dial, swept over by two traditional open-tipped blued steel hands.
The hand-hammered gold moon phase appears at 6 o’clock, surrounded by a midnight blue lacquered sky dotted with gold stars. The Breguet inscription appears in an oval cartouche at 12 o’clock. Finally, the 30 mm white gold case and lugs are set with 66 brilliant-cut diamonds.
The new Breguet Classique 9085BB is powered by Calibre 537L with its 231 components. Its gold oscillating weight is hand-engraved on a rose engine with a circular barleycorn pattern. Its balance oscillates at a frequency of 3.5 Hz.
The rhodium-plated self-winding movement has a 45-hour power reserve. It is equipped with an in-line Swiss lever escapement and a balance spring in silicon, a material endowed with numerous properties. In addition to being resistant to corrosion and wear, it is insensitive to the influence of magnetic fields and improves the accuracy of the timepiece.
The movement can be admired through the sapphire crystal caseback, with decorations such as chamfering and a Côtes de Genève motif embellishing the various movement components.
The Breguet Classique Phase de Lune 9085 Valentine’s Day Edition comes with an interchangeable strap system. Designed for easy tool-free switching between straps, this mechanism is operated by simply pressing the pusher on the underside of the wristband.
The case is water-resistant to 3 bar (30 m). The watch comes in a presentation box containing both red and an additional pearly white strap that are easily interchangeable as the wearer desires.
