The Breguet blue is taking on a different meaning in 2019. The launch of the new Breguet Classique 5177 in its unique grand feu enamel blue colour makes sure of that.
Inspired by neoclassical lines, the new timepiece is accentuated with moon-tipped rhodium-plated steel blue hands transposed on the dial. Powdered tracing ensures the readability of the Arabic numerals. Stars, diamond shapes and fleur-de-lis on the chapter ring. The date figures are also treated using the same process in order to aid visibility. Finally, the 6 o'clock position features the iconic secret signature of the brand and the date aperture is displayed at the 3 o'clock position.
The Classique 5177 is powered by a self-winding 777Q mechanical calibre which uses silicon for the level and escape wheel in order to optimise the chronometric readability. The sapphire-crystal caseback displays the 18-karat gold rotor.
The 38mm white gold piece comes with a 55-hour power reserve and rests comfortably on a dark blue alligator leather strap.
