With the new Breguet Classique 5177, Breguet is presenting in its current collection the Breguet blue for the first time in a grand feu enamel. This unique colour underscores the elegant simplicity of the Breguet timepiece in a contemporary register.
The hue of the dial exactly replicates the colour obtained during the bluing of the Breguet hands. To guarantee this exact nuance throughout the production process, extensive research was carried out into the colour pigments required and the manufacturing process. In particular, the colour needs to remain perfectly stable during firing at over 800°C. This is essential for the creation of a grand feu enamel, lending it a unique grain.
For all of its timepieces with an enamel dial, the House of Breguet continues to use the calligraphy once created by Abraham-Louis Breguet. Characteristic of a self-winding movement, the rotor in engine-turned 18-carat gold is clearly visible through the sapphire-crystal case back.
