THE HOUSE OF BREGUET is one steeped in tradition. Its founder, Abraham-Louis Breguet, is widely and consistently regarded as one of the most iconic figures in horology. Over the years, Breguet owners have comprised historical personalities such as Queen Victoria, Napoléon Bonaparte and Sir Winston Churchill.

For its new Classique 7337, Breguet has expanded on the venerable timepiece’s visual palette to include a rose gold model with a silvered gold dial. A white gold model with a gold dial finished in “Breguet blue” will also be available to cater to contemporary tastes.

Purists appreciate the Classique collection for its representation for Breguet’s unmistakable design language. The Classique 7337 proudly displays this through its guilloché. Breguet is one of the few watchmakers that continue to operate the rose engine lathe by hand in the practice of this time-honoured technique.
