The Breguet ClassiqueTourbillonextra-platautomatique5377 ultra-thin self-winding tourbillon watch, which made its debut at the Baselworld 2013, was put on a platinum coat this year. It contains one of the greatest inventions in the history of watches and clocks, and has multiple patented titanium cage eccentric tourbillon adjusters.
The movement of this 5377 watch is also equipped with an antimagnetic silicon hairspring and an escapement made of silicon and antimagnetic steel. With its technical characteristics, this ‘ClassiqueGrandeComplication’ watch is equipped with a 581DR movement with a frequency of up to 4 Hz. This is undoubtedly an excellent parameter configuration for the tourbillon watch, and it will not affect the power. The storage is shortened, and the secret is that the patented high-energy barrel can ensure that the 5377 watch can continue to operate for up to 90 hours even after it is removed from the wrist.
In order to accurately place the movement of only 3 mm into the 7 mm case, Breguet watchmakers set a ring-shaped platinum automatic rotor that can move in both directions on the edge of the movement. This technological breakthrough made the 5377 the thinnest self-winding tourbillon watch.
In terms of shape, this 42mm platinum watch includes 4 different machine-engraved flowers, which reflects Breguet’s respect for superb craftsmanship and perfect workmanship. The dial is decorated with Paris studded patterns to set off the hour and minute scales, and the outer edges are engraved with wheat grains. The power reserve at 8:30 shows carved straight herringbone patterns, and the diamond pattern outlines different functional areas. The center of the tourbillon bridge is set with a striking sapphire. As a real Breguet work, this brand new ultra-thin self-winding tourbillon watch cleverly combines the classic shape and advanced technology, which proves Breguet’s status in the world of watchmaking.
