Breguet Reveil du Tsar Enamel Dial Watch - Function-Packed and Extremely Readable

Jan 04, 2011
The acclaimed watchmaker Breguet is understandably proud to offer its new Reveil du Tsar Enamel Dial watch. An equilibrium between exquisite design and flawless technical mastery, this extraordinary model will be available solely and exclusively at Breguet boutique shops.

The new Breguet watch captures the attention with its appealing functional dial, characterized at the same time by the exceptional readability. The latter has been achieved due to a special “grand feu enamel” technique, employed in the manufacturing of the display.

During this process the dials are usually subject to extremely high temperatures. Those, that manage to survive through such a pressure, boast irresistibly beautiful pure white surfaces. The technique mentioned offers a high level of contrast, which ensures even the tiniest details remain clear to the eye of the beholder.

The multi-level enamel dial is completed with charismatic black-painted Arabic numerals and a delicate minute graduation, accented with subtle touches of red. The progression of hours and minutes is marked by centralized Breguet-type hands, crafted from steel. They are just as well fired to acquire their bright blue color.

The display of the new Reveil du Tsar Enamel Dial timepiece also includes a counter, which looks like a miniature watch face. Featured at 3 o’clock, it reveals black Roman numerals and hands of the same kind. This sub-dial is meant for setting the alarm, one of the most important functions, provided by the model in question.

The cutout, exposed beneath the 12 o’clock hour-marker, serves to show whether the complication is set to “on” or “off”. The alarm function is governed via an imposing crown, presented at 4 o’clock.

The watch face is visually balanced by a subsidiary seconds counter, located at 9 o’clock. Atop this sub-dial is revealed a GMT hand. Additionally, the dial offers a power reserve display and a date indication, arranged at 6 o’clock.

The dial is gently hugged by a coined-edge 18k rose gold case, which measures 39 mm in diameter. The case is equipped with another crown, nestled between 2 and 3 o’clock. At 8 o’clock, meanwhile, it exposes a neat push button. Ticking inside the case is the brand’s proprietary self-winding caliber 519F movement. The power reserve, supplied by the mechanism, constitutes 45 hours.

Keeping the new Breguet watch secured to the wearer’s wrist is a supremely elegant brown leather strap.
