Breguet, named for founder Abraham Louis Breguet holds a special place in the heart of mechanical watch lovers. Breguet, the man, was a pioneer of modern watchmaking. His place is among the greatest horologists to have ever lived and his inventions range from the wristwatch itself, to its grandest complication, the tourbillon. Breguet continue this tradition of artistry and innovation. Time+Tide is proud to share the ongoing Breguet story.

EVENT: Breguet's 2019 collection lands in Melbourne

Tuesday night in Melbourne was quite chilly, and rainy to boot. But that didn't stop our watch-loving readers from assembling at Fitzroy's Cutler & Co for something truly special. And that something was a selection of Breguet's latest and greatest watches, unveiled in Australia for the first time.  And for all that Breguet is known for their distinctive Classique and Tradition lines, those families were barely represented (though the new blue-dialled Classique was present, and indeed a favourite). No, instead…

INTRODUCING: The Breguet Classique Tourbillon Extra-Flat Skeleton 5395

Last year, Breguet introduced a stunningly simple, surprisingly asymmetrical addition to the Classique family, the Tourbillon Extra-Flat. This year, at Time to Move, they've premiered the next chapter. It's still a Classique Tourbillon, but it's been dramatically skeletonised. Meet the Breguet Classique Tourbillon Extra-Flat Skeleton 5395.  First things first – the fundamentals: 41mm across by a truly slender 7.7mm thick, offered in platinum or rose gold cases. The dial is sapphire, to show off the movement. The hands are (obviously)…

INTRODUCING: The new Breguet Classique 5177 will have you singing the blues

If there was the platonic ideal of a dress watch, I'm willing to bet that it would look a lot like Breguet's Classique: simple, elegant, restrained. But for all that, it's a watch full of subtle nuance and fine details — details that separate it from the rest of the pack.  The white gold case, fluted around the middle, is perfectly circular, something accentuated by that rounded, polished bezel, and the abrupt angularity of the welded, rounded lugs. Inside this…

HANDS-ON: The Breguet Marine Chronograph ref. 5527

If I'm being honest, this is one of the less "Breguet" watches Breguet has released in recent years. It's an unconventional mix of traditional features, in a much more contemporary package. All the key design features are there: the fluted case, the hands and the elaborately guillochéd dial, but this watch is a world away from their Classique collection, while still being undeniably Breguet. It also — and this is a key point — doesn't look too much like anything…

HANDS-ON: Around the world with the Breguet Classique Hora Mundi ref. 5717

The remarkable Hora Mundi ref. 5717 made its first appearance in 2011, to an enthusiastic reception. Then, in 2016, when Breguet launched an updated version (ref. 5727) they spoke of it as a replacement for the original. But some things are simply too special to discontinue. Thank goodness – for we rarely encounter a watch that combines technical genius, great beauty and immense charm in the way that this version of Hora Mundi does. For those of us who are…
