WatchTime New York, America’s largest luxury watch show, is just under three weeks away! As we continue our countdown to the long-awaited collectors’ event, taking place at Manhattan’s Gotham Hall on October 26-27, we are highlighting notable new timepieces that guests will discover there. Today we take a look at the Breguet Classique Tourbillon Extra-Plat Automatique 5367, a refined dress watch that showcases the brand’s historic relationship with the tourbillon.
Released at Baselworld, the Breguet Classique Tourbillon Extra-Plat Automatique 5367 combines all the things we love about Breguet timepieces — such as the iconic Breguet numerals, a tourbillon, and an off-centered dial — with a heaping of new features for the Grande Complications collection. Technically, the Classique Tourbillon Extra-Plat has been in Breguet’s catalog since 2013, but this time around, a grand feu enamel dial has been added and the power reserve indicator removed to create an impressively austere dial layout.
The tourbillon that encompasses both four and five o’clock has a hand-beveled tourbillon bar topped by a spinel that stabilizes the extra-thin mechanism. The case comes in either 18k rose gold or platinum with a fluted caseband and exhibition caseback so you can see the hand-engraved bridges, barrel, and oscillating weight. It’s a surprisingly thin timepiece, coming in at a sylphlike 7.45 mm, thanks to the self-winding caliber 581 that is only 3-mm thick. The movement provides an 80-hour power reserve with a 4-Hz rate. The winding is accomplished through a peripherally-placed rotor that is constructed from platinum.
