Breguet – Tradition Automatique Seconde Rétrograde 7097

A watch that is going to be officially introduced during the Baselworld 2015. Tradition collection will be enriched with the new watch called Automatique Second Retrograde 7097.

When you look at this watch, you can at glance state that this is a timepiece from Tradition collection. Most of the movement parts are fully exposed like bridges, wheels, barrel and other components that build this sophisticated movement.

As you can see a mechanical movement has become a strong part of the design in this collection. Hours and minutes are displayed at the upper-dial in a sub-dial with vintage numerals along with a retrograde seconds displayed with the semi-circle. Everything is finished in the classic for Breguet way.

Distinctive blued-steel hands complement the whole Tradition collection. All of the complications in this watch are powered by self winding Calibre 505SR1 mechanical movement. At the center of a dial we can see a main spring barrel, which provides 50 hours of power reserve when fully wound. The interesting fact about this sophisticated movement is that it’s adjusted to 6 positions. At 4 o’clock there is a para-chute system protecting the balance staff from shocks. Everything is assembled within 40mm case made of white gold. Finely fluted caseband is the next eye-catching thing about this watch. The front and caseback is treated by sapphire crystal. Watch goes with black alligator leather strap. Another great Breguet watch with a stunning appearance that knocks on knees and impress. It is a dream for a real horology connoiseurs. Years of experience in watchmaking  combined with tradition and fineness in design.
