The Tradition handed down series is directly inspired by the subscription pocket watch movement created by Breguet at the end of the eighteenth century. This new piece provides an open view as its movement and all structures, and not only displays the hours and minutes, but also has a retrograde date display.
The inspiration for the Tradition series is actually derived from one of the most important timepieces in Breguet history: Subscription pocket watches. The ingenious simplicity and detachable back cover provide a clear view of the carefully developed movement, presenting an impeccably symmetrical design. The new Tradition series 7597 watch is also equipped with a retrograde date display, which is one of the first complications developed by Mr. Abraham-Louis Breguet, which is often carried in some of the most famous masterpieces.
The self-winding movement model 505Q is housed in a 40 mm diameter white gold case decorated with coins on the outer edge. It is equipped with a reverse linear lever escapement, with a silicon pallet fork, and silicon Quality Breguet hairspring. The gold oscillating weight is clearly visible through the transparent back cover, reminiscent of the earliest self-winding copy watches for men (the Perpetuelles), and further confirms the ingenuity of this master watchmaker.
Original design, symmetrical layout
As a perfectionist who pays attention to both technology and aesthetics, the movement designed by Mr. Abraham-Louis Breguet is still awe-inspiring by its modernity. Across the centuries, Mr. Breguet’s design has always been the original source of the Tradition series: the large barrel placed in the center is located above the symmetrical layout of the wheel train. Similarly, the center wheel at 8 o’clock corresponds to the pendulum mechanism of the same size at 4 o’clock. It is equipped with the famous “parachute” shock absorber (Pare-chute), which was invented by Master Breguet. It is the pioneer of all shock absorbers today and a symbolic element of the Tradition series.
Another unique feature is the off-center hour and minute dial at 12 o’clock. It is made of gold and is inspired by some Breguet touch watches. Inspired by this, the hour scale ring equipped with the new Tradition series 7597 date retrograde watch adopts Roman numeral hour markers, and the edges are decorated with exquisite Clous de Paris guilloché engraved patterns to reflect the blue steel treasure. Ji pointer.
In order to achieve a balanced beauty, the retrograde date display is located between the 3 o’clock position and the 9 o’clock position, and the arc-shaped hand that is cleverly designed to indicate the date moves on a vertical plane, and the movement has a geometric design. Coordinated. The patented regulator can fine-tune the date indicator. The date indicator uses a multi-level design to ensure that it can cross over the movement parts when retrograde. At 10 o’clock, a screw-in adjuster can be used, allowing users to set the date at ease.
Subscription pocket watch: a masterpiece of simple style
“The chronometer was made in the Breguet workshop.
It goes without saying that it has reached an impeccable standard. “
Jules Verne, “Jules Verne, Captain Antifer” (Jules Verne, Captain Antifer), 1894.
Mr. Abraham-Louis Breguet is one of the most gifted watchmakers ever, and the creator of many technological innovations widely used in the watchmaking industry, such as the gong developed for the timekeeping cheap replica watches (1783 ), or tourbillon (1801). Although he created some of the most complicated watches, he is also known for creating the simplest watches.
After spending two years in Switzerland at the peak of the French Revolution, Mr. Abraham-Louis Breguet began to re-operate the Breguet workshop located on the clock embankment of the Isla de Cité in Paris in the spring of 1795. The first step he needs to do is to attract new customers. For this reason, Mr. Breguet invented a timepiece that was extremely simple and extremely reliable. He launched a reservation service for this timepiece. This brought him great commercial success. Today, his works can be enjoyed at the Breguet Museum in Paris and some other museums in Europe; the subscription pocket watch No. 947 was sold in 1802 and is now on display at the Louvre.
Breguet replica created the earliest touch watches with the movement of the subscription pocket watch, sometimes adding a small dial to them; this became the source of inspiration for the Tradition series that came out in 2005 and also marked the return of this classic movement structure.
