Swiss luxury watchmakers Breguet have created a new addition to its Tradition Collection, which was first introduced ten years ago.

Called the Tradition Automatique Seconde Rétrograde 7097, the new wristwatch comes in a 40mm, 18-karat white gold (also available in rose gold) case and features a unique dial that exposes the movement components sitting within.

The timepiece boasts several nods to the “montres à tact” (touch watches) and “souscription” watches of the 18th century, including a gold oscillating weight and asmaller
dial in silver-finished 18-karat gold which floats at 12 o’clock.

A a retrograde seconds complication can also be found layered over the dial in a brushed silver-finished semi-circle at 10 o’clock.

Other notable features include Breguet’s signature blue steel hands, a leather strap and a power reserve of 50 hours.

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