The new Breguet Classique 5395 ultra-thin tourbillon skeleton watch highlights the tourbillon movement, with a special selection of ultra-thin hollow design with a thickness of only 3 mm. Whether it is on the watchmaking technical or the artistry, this watch can be regarded as the unparalleled masterpiece.
The Breguet ultra-thin 581 movement, which was placed in it, has already achieved the technical feat of Breguet’s bold creation as early as the beginning of its application. In particular, the design of the tourbillon needs to be re-conceived as a whole, in order to create such a subtle and unique structure. Today, Breguet once again breaks through the boundaries of watchmaking and achieves a nearly 50% reduction in movement materials without affecting the structure.
The hollow design on the 18K gold movement with a thickness of only 3 mm is the limit, highlighting the true technical essence of the Breguet watchmaker. Combined with the use of hand-engraving, and chamfering, the watch is even more outstanding.
The ultra-thin movement of the 581 is a masterpiece in the field of watchmaking. With a thickness of 3 mm, it is among the most outstanding self-winding tourbillon movements in the world. Its technical achievements are followed by a series of complicated commissioning.
The ultra-lightweight tourbillon frame of the 581 calibers has a total weight of no more than 0.290 grams. Thanks to a high-energy barrel, the 4 Hz high-frequency tourbillon movement has a long-term power reserve of 80 hours, the movement was once mounted on the 5377 and 5367. This time, the movement was first applied to a completely hollow design structure, which is a contemporary interpretation of the heritage. In order to highlight the exquisite mechanical structure, the gold splint and the bridge are also hollowed out. The challenge of the hollowing process is mainly due to the fact that the material properties are eliminated at the same time, and the technical performance of each component is not affected. The use of gold materials adds to the difficulty of this novel watchmaking technique. Once the selected alloy material begins to harden, the watchmaker needs to immediately apply professional techniques to handle it in order to achieve the final shape. Breguet is one of only a handful of watch brands with such a realm of gold and art.
The exquisite piece has a coin motif on the outer edge of the case, and a curved glass mirror that gives the movement a beautiful view. The blue gold digital hour markers are used on the sapphire glass dial. The scale ring is made by electroplating, while the timing zone is laser engraved and filled with blue varnish. The watch combines the classic blue steel Breguet hands and welded lugs that highlight the essence of the Breguet style and standout the minimalist design concept. Water-resistant to 30 meters, the watch is available in a rose gold case with a grey movement (5395BR/1S/9WU)and a platinum case with a rose gold movement(5395PT/RS/9WU).
