2014 Baselworld Baselworld – Breguet Classique 3797 Tourbillon Perpetual Calendar Watch

Although the Classique series already includes several perpetual calendar products, Breguet watchmakers have decided to create a new style, the Classique 3797 tourbillon perpetual calendar watch. In this new product, they pay special attention to the natural display of the scale to ensure that it sets off the appeal of the watch.

Perpetual calendar models require more information on the dial, which can sometimes be confusing, so Breguet has creatively added a three-dimensional design and improved the scale display of the hour and minute hands. This setting makes it easier to read time At the same time, you can see other information on the dial at a glance. The non-transparent Roman numeral hour-marker scale circle, combined with the Breguet blue-steel hands with a hollow ‘moon-shaped’ needle point, can clearly and quickly display the time. Below the sapphire disc is a dial with Paris studs and a semicircle retrograde calendar display.
The one-minute tourbillon at six o’clock is cleverly combined with the hour sign circle. Such a delicate structure is extremely difficult to create in terms of craftsmanship, its bridge is also exquisitely chamfered, and a small three-pin second hand is set on the shaft. The day of the week is at 9 o’clock, decorated with wavy patterns, and the scroll cam built into the movement helps the week to jump instantly. The month display is indicated by a blue steel hand, which is located at 3 o’clock on the dial and decorated with solar radiation patterns. The ‘blue sun’ in the center of the display dial is for leap year display.
Through the sapphire crystal case back, you can see the inner world of the watch. The transparent design makes the tourbillon jump in front of you. Breguet watchmakers’ sophisticated retouching skills give new life to the sculptural ornamentation, and the meticulous carving process seems to be writing a new rotation rhythm for the tourbillon ballet steps.

Although the 3797 is already recognized as a masterpiece of timepieces, Breguet’s watchmakers still strive for excellence to create a more outstanding watch: 3795. The invisible dial creates a subtle skeleton model, showing the complex structure of the movement like a perspective view. The 3795 watch can be regarded as a true ‘high-order customization’ in the field of micro-mechanics.
In addition to technical and design achievements, the Classique Tourbillon Quantième Perpétuel 3797 and 3795 Tourbillon Perpetual Calendar watches have all the features of a Breguet masterpiece. The case is made of rose gold or platinum, with delicate coin accents on the sides, and the independently welded lugs are secured with screws. The hand-engraved engraved dial, individually numbered, blued-steel hands, and concealed signatures are all signs of Breguet.
