Pre-BaselWorld 2016: Breguet
What a blast of freshness, to see a women’s timepiece that doesn’t go out of its way to distance itself from its feminine nature.
The Classique Phase de Lune Dame is a sublime work of art, brimming with subtlety and sophistication in equal measure. The pristine dial looks simple, but its execution is exceeding fastidious – the smooth, flawless surface is courtesy of a high-fired enamel technique that requires extreme patience and experience, so that the enamel doesn’t crack despite being repeatedly heated at over 800˚C.
The beautiful dial is complemented by blued steel hands and 66 brilliant-cut diamonds on a dainty white gold case measuring 30mm across; an effortlessly glamorous look that one’d expect from a Breguet Classique watch.
It’s interesting that Breguet has picked a ladies’ watch to get its 2016 campaign underway, as opposed to a men’s timepiece. Perhaps the brand is suggesting a greater emphasis on women’s watches this year?
