Breguet Unveils Two Gorgeous Watches to Honour The Yr of The Dragon

As dragon-theme products are rolling out this year, Breguet has unveiled two exceptional timepieces paying tribute to the mythical creature’s reign this Lunar New Year. 

Breguet, the prestigious Swiss watch manufacturer, has introduced two stunning timepieces that exquisitely capture the essence of the Chinese Zodiac, the dragon. One of the watches, the Classique Double Tourbillon Dragon – 5345, incorporates two tourbillons and an intricate mechanical stage, which showcases the beast in all its glory. Meanwhile, the Classique Dragon – 7145 has a slimmer design and focuses more on paying homage to the brand’s mastery of artistic crafts. Here’s a closer look at both models.

Breguet unveils two stunning watches to honour the Year of the Dragon

Classique Double Tourbillon Dragon – 5345 Special Edition

The Classique Double Tourbillon Dragon 5345 watch is a true embodiment of the dragon’s powerful and tenacious characteristics. Drawing from Abraham-Louis Breguet’s invention of the tourbillon in 1801, this special edition timepiece boasts technical brilliance and artistic mastery. It features two independent tourbillons, each rotating once per minute. Moreover, the Calibre 588N1 movement comprises an impressive 749 components that power this art, offering a 60-hour power reserve.

Of course, the dragon, hand-engraved in gold, is the standout feature of this mechanism. It clutches a mother-of-pearl pearl, symbolising power, wisdom, and longevity in Chinese culture. This special edition watch is truly a one-of-a-kind piece as Breguet allows for customisation in the dragon’s shape, colour, hands, and straps. 

Classique Dragon – 7145 Limited Edition

Breguet has demonstrated its expertise in the rare and challenging Grand Feu enamelling technique through the Classique Dragon 7145. This exquisite timepiece is a limited-edition work of art, with only eight pieces available. The watch’s beautiful crimson red dial is achieved through multiple firings in a high-temperature kiln, showcasing Breguet’s exceptional craftsmanship. Since Grand Feu enamelling is known for its difficulty and high failure rate, Breguet’s ability to produce such stunning results with the glassy finish is a true testament to their mastery of the technique.

The Classique Dragon 7145 features a rose gold dragon appliqué, guarding a natural white mother-of-pearl pearl, making it a sight to behold. The watch has a 40mm rose gold case and is powered by the Calibre 502.3 self-winding movement, with a 45-hour power reserve.
