Breguet Tradition 7057

In 1775, Abraham Louis Breguet founded his own company in Paris. Aside from making spectacular watch pieces for legendary figures such as Napoleon Bonaparte, Caroline Murat—Queen of Naples Queen Marie-Antoinette, and Winston Churchill, he invented irreplaceable components of watches that all great watchmaking companies are still using to this day, including Breguet Balance-Spring, Breguet Hands, Breguet Arabic numerals and Pare-chute.

In 2005, Breguet introduced the first Breguet Tradition Collection watch (Ref. 7027). The collection was inspired by the noted watchmaker and the founder of Breguet –Abraham Louis Breguet. It was a bold break through—mixing traditional Breguet Style with an antique movement that fully shows all the elaborate mechanisms of the movement on top of the watch face. It was the first time for Breguet to manufacture this type of watch. The innovative and marvelous appearance immediately captured a lot of attention.

In 2010, Breguet presented the Tradition 7057—a combination of simplicity and complication. On the 40mm white gold case, there is a small off-centered dial at 12 o’clock with Breguet hour/minute hands only. Aside from that is the complex mechanisms inside the watch that can be clearly seen from the dial. The hand-winding 507 DR1 calibre offers 50 hours of power reserve, and the pare-chute shock protection mechanism inside the watch can protect mechanical watches from damage when dropped.

At Baselworld 2015, Breguet Tradition 7097 Automatique Seconde Retrograde made its debut. Unlike the other models in the Tradition family, this watch has a retrograde second hand at 10 o’clock position, and the scale intersects the off-centered main dial at 12 o’clock position.  This 40mm white gold watch features self-winding 505 SR1 calibre that allows 50 hours of power reserve. With a more stylish decoration—peening—added to the components, the mechanisms are more industrial-looking with textured surface.
