The classic and craftsman like credentials of Breguet are seen in this Breguet Classique 5277 Réserve de Marche. A typical Breguet watch with some nice features.
Abraham-Louis Breguet was a master watchmaker and one of the most influential names in watchmaking. Besides the iconic Breguet hands he was most famous for patenting the tourbillon escapement. And he invented the gong for repeater watches and created the first wristwatch in 1810. That last one is up for debate, but Breguet is often credited for this achievement.
This new Breguet Classique 5277 Réserve de Marche has a technical novelty. Its caliber 515DR movement features an innovation developed jointly by Breguet and its sister company, Nivarox. The movement of this Classique model, in particular its mainsprings, uses a new type of stainless steel with excellent mechanical properties.
The Breguet Classique 5277 Réserve de Marche comes in white or rose gold
This patented material stores more energy in a given volume, which means an improved power-reserve and a constant torque for an unvarying rate. This alloy is also ecological, being free of cobalt or beryllium, non-magnetic and stainless. The new feature upgrades the power-reserve of the Classique 5277 from 75 to 96 hours.
The use of this patent will be seen in the future in other brands of the Swatch Group, to which Breguet belongs. Furthermore, the Breguet Classique 5277 Réserve de Marche has a Roman hours and minute chapter, small seconds at 6 o’clock and a power-reserve indicator.
Two Breguet-classics, an individual number on the dial and welded lugs, finalize the dress watch. All of which is housed in an 18-carat white or rose gold case on a black or brown alligator leather strap.
