By Paul Joseph

Amongst the array of stunning timepieces currently on display at the Baselworld watch fair in Switzerland is an entire new collection by Breguet.

Comprising a total of seven exquisite watches, the collection will be showcased until tomorrow when the high profile event closes its doors after eight days of showcasing the horological world’s latest innovative creations.

One of the standout watches in the new collection is a 42mm platinum timepiece called the Classique Tourbillon Extra-Plat Automatique 5377. Featuring an extra-thin self-winding movement with tourbillon, the watch’s 18-karat gold dial features four silvered and engine-turned patterns.

The Classique Tourbillon Quantième Perpétuel 3797, meanwhile, is a 41mm 18-karat rose gold perpetual calendar timepiece featuring an open-worked 3D dial with a skeletonized tourbillon. The 18K gold dial features four silvered and engine-turned patterns.

Another highlight is the Secret de la Reine, an 18-karat white gold timepiece billed as a “secret watch”, with a dial hidden by a floral cameo. It features a bow decoration in 18-karat white gold paved with 432 brilliant-cut diamonds, whilst the flange of the dial is set with a further 48 brilliant-cut diamonds, and the dial itself paved with 116 brilliant-cut diamonds.

Breguet was founded by Abraham-Louis Breguet in Paris in 1775. The brand is now owned by Swiss company The Swatch Group.
