Breguet launched the iconic Tradition series 7027 in 2005. It is the first time to fully expose the mechanical mechanism of the splint. This series has the same characteristics but different styles. This year Welcome this outstanding new member-Tradition Automatique Seconde Rétrograde 7097.
The case of the Tradition Automatique Seconde Rétrograde 7097 watch is cast in 18K white gold with a fine bezel pattern. The dial is made of silver-plated 18K gold, and the 12 o’clock eccentric dial is decorated with hand-engraved patterns. It has an independent number and a Breguet signature.
Like other members in the series, 7097 is inspired by ‘customized watches’, showing Abraham-Louis. Breguet’s talent, the first single-pointer pocket watch developed in 1796. The custom watch is equipped with a simple movement and sold as an order: a quarter price is paid in advance, and the balance is paid when the goods are picked up. Mr. Baoji also made the first touch watch with the movement of a custom watch. Praise the movement of this custom watch and touch watch with Tradition 7097, and show the bridge, gears, escapement, barrel and movement parts of the general watch hidden under the splint. The slender decoration enhances the visual balance of the symmetrical table bridge. The bridge and the splint are in the shape of a hammer to match the rare hand-made skills and perfect production skills to achieve an even and consistent modification effect. The gold oscillating weight refers to the style of the movement at that time, and the eccentric silver-plated gold dial at 12 o’clock is decorated with the traditional hand-engraved stud pattern. The dials produced by Mr. Baoji after 1799 are equipped with this dial design.
This brand new watch is named for its retrograde second hand at 10 o’clock, with the hour and minute display function indicated by the Breguet needlework hollow blue steel hands. The Breguet watchmaker displays the seconds in a semi-circle decorated with a circular frosted texture, without confusing other display functions. The 4 o’clock shock absorber shows the overall perfect balance. This famous Breguet invention can protect the balance lever from damage due to impact, which is also a feature that the Tradition series can recognize at a glance. This device is a variety of shock absorbers today. Including the pioneer of the ‘Ingabor’ system. The case is a 40mm 7097 equipped with the most advanced technology. Its movement is equipped with an inverted linear lever escapement, with silicon pawls and silicon Breguet balance springs to ensure a stable rate. The Tradition Automatique Seconde Rétrograde 7097 watch is the crystallization of craftsmanship and aesthetics, showing Breguet’s determination to modernize historic installations. Its simple appearance more closely follows the brand’s tradition, and its technical characteristics are an important asset for a watchmaking brand to resolutely create the future.
