Breguet Tradition 7035

Breguet Tradition 7035

A sparkling new variation

The House of Breguet caused a sensation with the unveiling of its Tradition line, whose timepieces were the first to feature the entire movement on the dial. The collection pays homage to the most advanced art of watchmaking, while staying true to the history of the Maison. The models in the collection are modern-day interpretations of the subscription watches designed by Abraham-Louis Breguet, and particularly noted for the architecture of their fully symmetrical caliber. Today, Breguet completes its iconic line with a limited edition of 88 timepieces, one that gives pride of place to gem-setting.

The new Tradition 7035 bears all the hallmarks of the collection, including the offset dial, housed here at 12 o’clock. The piece is topped off with a natural white mother-of-pearl hours chapter, thereby providing a clear view of the fully exposed movement. The movement is set around the central barrel, indicated by its rosette motif, by harmoniously placed traditional bridges, wheels, pare-chute, and balance wheel. Breguet combines this new creation with the finesse of jewellery, opting for the snow-setting technique. The 18-carat gold chosen for the dial, plate and bridges are all set with different-sized diamonds in order to keep the visible material to a minimum. The result is unrivaled brilliance. Illuminating the bezel, brilliant-cut diamonds adorn the Tradition 7035. For the retrograde seconds indicator, the Maison opted for a gradient of rubies and pink sapphires, which recall both the rubies on the movement and the one housed upon the crown. A leather strap in the same colours completes this new timepiece.

The spectacle resumes at the caseback where a rotor in gold continues with the barrel motif, serving as a reminder that this creation is powered by a self-winding caliber. Equipped with the reference 505J, this timepiece features a lever escapement with silicon horns and a Breguet balance spring of the same material.
