The renowned watchmaker Breguet has always been at the front of the grid, as far as the balance-spring is concerned. This central piece of movement underwent a considerable development in 2006, when the brand unveiled its first timepieces, endowed with a balance-spring and escapement in silicon.
Much lighter than metal and completely impervious to magnetic fields, this sophisticated material has been employed in manufacturing of the new Tradition 7047 watch, equipped with tourbillon and fusee and chain transmission. Due to its complex structure, the balance-spring incorporated into the movement, is rightfully considered a great achievement in the art of timekeeping.
The new Breguet watch is available with a 41 mm case rendered in platinum. Its back is fitted with a sapphire crystal. The water-resistance of the watch is down to 30 meters.
The watch case houses a mechanical manually-wound movement - Calibre 569, coated with a special dark grey colored metal alloy. This mechanism brings to life the functions of indicating hours and minutes and offers a 50-hour power reserve.
The final touch is provided by an attractive leather strap. Technically exclusive, the Breguet Tradition 7047 watch breaks the ground for further development prospects.
