CLASSIQUE 5317 Tourbillon and power-reserve indicator - Baselworld 2005
|Rating: 75 %1000 with 279 votes|
The classique 5317 puts a tourbillon, activated by an automatic movement, in place of honour. Crafted in yellow gold or platinum, the case reveals a gold dial engine -turned by hand in a conventional hobnail pattern. The subdial of the power-reserve indicator is aligned in perfect symmetry with the tourbillon and is engine-turned in a wave pattern in the purest tradition of Breguet’s watchmaking art.
The central hours and minutes, the tourbillon at 6 o’clock and the power-reserve indicator at 12 o’clock tell the time with elegance and harmony. The beauty of the movement, entirely engraved by hand, can be seen through the transparent caseback.
