History Abraham Louis Breguet created the legendary Souscription watches in the 1790’s characterised by simple yet imposing aesthetics. The Tradition Collection by Breguet pays a tribute to the first ever watches made by the watchmaker, retaining the classic design elements of Breguet and marking a grand salute to the creator’s memory. In 2005, Breguet invented a shock protection device for the balance pivot of a Tradition watch, rendering the collection tremendously resilient and sealing the enduring nature of the collection, both in style and spirit.
Features The timepieces from this collection feature flawless and exquisite craftsmanship, so much so that even their smallest parts have been appliquéd by hand scrupulously and feature sand-blasted finish on the surface. The dial is embellished with horological complications and visually sweeping compositions, giving it a distinctive allure. All the watches in this collection exhibit a skeleton design, enabling you to observe the elusive complexity of the movements. They feature fluted coin edged cases and have off-centred chapter rings to display the hands and hours. The traditional Breguet hands for hours and minutes are used proudly honouring its glorious ethos. The cases of the timepieces are made of either 18 carat white gold or 18 carat rose gold. Alligator leather straps in different hues are attached to the open-ended curling lugs. The power reserve indicators on these timepieces indicate the state of wind in the main spring.
