In 2008, Breguet presented a new design of these technological miracles, equipped with a completely reconstructed movement that incorporated new materials as well as featured newly fresh positions for gongs, gong rests and hammers.
Now, this patented technique is in use on Breguet minute repeater no. 7637. Its large case, sized 42 mm, performed in white or pink gold, accommodates a minute repeater movement, with the latter offering running seconds at 9 o’clock and a 24-hour sub-dial at 3 o’clock.
No repeater without chimes had been able before to produce the crystal-clear sound coming out of the case. The color of the gold gongs coincides with that of the case, while the hammers made of hard metal have been exposed to polishing and beveling - quite an achievement for such an unyielding material.
The manual-winding movement can be seen through the case back made of clear sapphire crystal. It has been completely subject to chasing by hand in the very style of Brequet. The dial of the Breguet watch is created in silvered 18K gold.
