We are proud to present this stylish & functional Breguet Classique Le Réveil du Tsar 18ct white gold watch for sale.
Breguet’s Classique range of wristwatches exemplify the watchmaking ideals of precision, clarity and elegant lines. Whether extra-thin models or complicated watches, they are all true to the technical principles, the artistry and the traditional values of the Breguet watch.
With the Réveil du Tsar, launched in 2003, Breguet introduced two new patents through their new caliber the 519F; the first for the column-wheel mechanism that locks or activates the alarm, the second one for the device that co-ordinates the alarm with the local time. This elegant and complicated masterpiece takes its name from Tsar Alexander I of Russia, among the ranks of esteemed and honourable Breguet collectors.
This version the reference 5707 comes set in an elegant 39mm solid 18ct white gold case with a smooth polished bezel and ‘coin edge’ case barrel. The dial is a stunning silver, hand-engraved guilloche with a variety of textures and patterns to help distinguish the various features and functions of the watch. Between 10/12 o’clock is the alarm functions power reserve indicator with the alarms ‘on/off’ aperture just under the name at 12 o’clock (operated by the pusher at 8 o’clock). The sub-dial at 3 o’clock is the alarm time, which is adjusted separately via the 4 o’clock crown. The dial at 9 o’clock is the 24-hour indicator, which when paired with a ‘hacking’ hour hand acts as a second timezone indicator. The bottom of the dial has a semi-circular sub-dial which contains the date aperture and a running sweeping second hand. All of this is protected by a flat sapphire crystal glass and is powered by the calibre 519F automatic movement, which is visible through an exhibition caseback. The watch comes fitted on a black alligator leather strap with a solid white gold folding clasp.
Originally purchased in September 2007 and in fine condition due to some light marks on the bezel and the strap being lightly worn, this Breguet comes with its original inner & outer boxes, instruction booklet and international warranty booklet. This Breguet is sold with a 12-month warranty from SWC.
