Breguet Reveil Musical Watch - Symbol of Intergenerational Solidarity

Jul 06, 2011
Breguet is proud to unveil its new one-of-a-kind Reveil Musical watch, created specially for Only Watch 2011. It enchants the audience with a unique tune, “Castle in the sky”, played on demand or at a pre-set time.


The new Breguet watch boasts a round-shaped 48mm case in 18-carat white gold. The case-band is engraved with a musical stave. The model reveals rounded and soldered lugs as well as screw-secured spring-bars. Its back side is engraved with the “Piece Unique” inscription. The case is submersible to 30 meters.

Inside the timepiece is hidden an automatic mechanical cal. 0900 movement. It is numbered and marked with the Breguet signature. The mechanism incorporates a silicon escape-wheel and a lever as well as a Breguet balance spring.

Adorned with 59 jewels, the caliber operates at a frequency of 4Hz and offers a 55-hour power reserve.

The new Breguet Reveil Musical watch strikes the eye with a rotating hand-guilloched dial. It depicts a child’s hand, stretching out to that of the adult, presented on the flange. The image symbolizes the intergenerational solidarity and support for research on Duchenne muscular dystrophy.

The watch face features a chapter ring with Roman numerals. The striking mechanism is activated when the dial center performs a full turn.

The display offers central hours, minutes and seconds, indicated by Breguet-type hollow “moon” tip hands in blued steel. The alarm on/off indication appears in a circular window between 9 and 10 o’clock. The alarm power reserve indication is shown in the aperture at 3 o’clock.

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