Breguet Tradition Skeleton (Ref. 7057BB/11/9W6) 18K WG
When it comes to the names that have shaped the landscape of watchmaking as we know it today, there are few that have been more influential than Abraham-Louis Breguet. Credited with numerous horological innovations ranging from multiple different automatic winding systems to even the tourbillon itself, Breguet left an indelible mark on the watchmaking industry and his eponymous brand is one of the oldest still in operation today, with a rich history that dates all the way back to 1775.
Featuring a 41mm case crafted from solid 18k white gold, the Breguet Tradition reference 7057BB/11/9W6 represents a thoroughly modern take on a classic Breguet wristwatch, upholding the brand’s rich traditions of fine finishing and expertly crafted movements. Although a silver off-centered dial sits towards the 12 o’clock side inside the case, the real “dial of this watch is its hand-wind Caliber 507 DR1 movement, which takes center stage and showcases its unique architecture with frosted bridges and an aerodynamic free-sprung balance, complete with a hand-made Breguet overcoil hairspring.
