The 18k gold dial is unmistakably Breguet: it is silvered and engine-turned in four different patterns, with Roman numeral hour markers and open-tipped blue Breguet hands made of blued steel. The hours-and-minutes chapter has a clou de Paris hobnail pattern edged by a barleycorn motif. The power-reserve indicator at 8:30 is decorated with engine-turned straight chevrons, with cross-hatched borders on each element. The tourbillon bridge has a blue sapphire set in its center; the small seconds are displayed on the tourbillon’s axis.
The Breguet Classique Tourbillon Extra-Plat Automatique 5377 has a finely fluted caseband (another hallmark of the Breguet brand), a sapphire caseback, and welded lugs with screw bars. It comes on a leather strap with triple-blade folding clasp. Prices are $149,500 for the rose-gold watch and $163,800 for the platinum.
