2018 sees the launch of Breguet’s Grandes Complications collection with a variation of their ‘Grand Feu’. Their new Classique Grandes Complications 5367 is encased by a simple aesthetic much like the Tourbillon with a minimalistic dial. Breguet have purposefully kept this featyre simple to give its mechanism full attention. Featuring an exclusive graphic hand-bevelled tourbillon bar finished with a unique spinel is a style only Breguet knows how to create.
The watch’s blue hands evoke a bold contrast against its impeccable white enamel. While its chapter ring is slightly off centred at 11 o’clock to directly face the tourbillon. This layout is a revolutionary design by A.-L. Breguet himself who pioneered in unconventional timepieces.

Whilst the collection has a relatively understated appearance, it’s movement is second-to-none, and its bridges, barrel and oscillating weight are all hand-engraved. Made from platinum, the latter rotates to give a clearer view of its impeccable movement. Measuring at a mere 7.45mm thickness, its movement is 3 mm. Its sleekness gives an ideal aesthetic without compromising on it’s powering of 581, oscillating at a frequency of 4 Hz. The tourbillon’s high performance pays thanks to a ‘high-energy’ barrel.
This new masterpiece is available in rose gold, or platinum, with mahogany brown or blue alligator strap, and will be on display at this year's Baselworld.
