The History of Breguet Classique Watches
Arguably the most highly coveted Breguet watches come from the Classique line. Each timepiece is intricately detailed and extremely precise. They are true examples of the ingenuity and artistic nature of Abraham Louis Breguet himself.
Breguet Classique watches are sought out by admirers with specific models becoming the focal point of many fine collections.
The Classique 7137 is an 18 carat gold example that exudes elegance. With its shimmering case and stunning dial that shows the phases of the moon, the 7137 leaves an impact on all who see it.
5157 models also create an impression that’s near impossible to match with an 18 carat white gold dial and sapphire back casing. A 38mm diameter makes the Classique 5157 one of the smaller examples in the name’s line, adding to its illustrious and elegant design.
For the finest impression of luxury, the 7147 is an excellent example. Sporting fluted cases available in silver, white gold and rose gold, the Breguet Classique 7147 with its alligator leather strap and gold pin buckle was designed to enrapture and delight. Alongside the Breguet signature, it makes for a truly artistic timepiece.
An Array of Avid Admirers
Breguet watches have been a staple across the centuries. French and English royalty alike have been great admirers of Abraham Louis Breguet’s timepieces. Napoleon Bonaparte alone had three pocket watches and a table clock from Breguet.
In more recent times, Breguet Classique watches are more likely to be found around the wrists of A-List Hollywood actors. In the hit film Limitless, Robert de Niro plays finance tycoon Carl Van Loon and he can be seen sporting the stunning Breguet Classique Automatic 5197 throughout.
