Exceptional Breguet Yellow Gold Wristwatch from the Early 2010s

We are delighted to present a fine and charismatic timepiece from the esteemed Swiss watch brand, Breguet, renowned since its establishment in 1775. This rare wristwatch, crafted in the first half of the 2010s, exemplifies the pinnacle of horological artistry.

Key Features:

  • Material and Dimensions: The case, a testament to luxury, is meticulously fashioned from 18k yellow gold, boasting a diameter of 35mm and a slim profile with a thickness of 9.15mm. It features a signed crown and a transparent sapphire case back, allowing a glimpse into the intricacies within.
  • Dial Elegance: The 18k gold silver-plated dial is a work of art with hand-made guilloché decoration, showcasing Breguet's commitment to craftsmanship. The Breguet double secret signature, discreetly placed between XI and XII, as well as XII and I, adds an element of exclusivity.
  • Mechanical Marvel: Powering this timepiece is the hand-wound caliber 558, a masterpiece in itself with meticulous hand-engraving and the precision of a Breguet hairspring. The watch boasts a commendable power reserve of up to 50 hours.
  • Complications: Offering more than just timekeeping, this wristwatch features hours and minutes, along with the exquisite addition of a tourbillon. The three-pointed small seconds hand gracefully orbits the tourbillon shaft, showcasing the watch's intricate mechanical dance.
  • Strap and Clasp: Completing the ensemble is a sophisticated black leather strap, paired with a Breguet 18k yellow gold double folding clasp, ensuring both comfort and security on the wrist.

This Breguet masterpiece combines historical legacy with contemporary elegance, making it a coveted collector's item. Its rarity, charismatic design, and intricate complications mark it as a true gem in the world of haute horlogerie.
