This isn’t a new collection, but it’s quite an enhancement in options for those who had a craving for subtle changes. Two different gold casing options with the choice of two distinct dials on either case, for a total of four new variations.

The 39mm case will be available in either: 18k white or rose gold with a transparent sapphire case back, which allows to view the inner workings of the mechanical movement. It features a delicately fluted caseband adornment and long slim lugs that assist in providing a comfortable wrist fit.

There is a crown setter at the 3 o’clock position and a small Moonphase push-piece corrector on the left side of the case, near the 9 o’clock position. Water-resistance on this timepiece can reach up to 30 meters (100 feet).

Time is exhibited on either a: white ‘Grande Feu’ enamel dial or a silvered guilloché dial, with Arabic numerals, followed by three variations of small black colored minute index markers, circling around the dial.

Includes an anthropomorphic Moonphase, under the 12 o’clock position with a 0 to 29 ½ indication grid underneath it, which indicates the “age of the moon”, since this a no-date watch with a Moonphase. There is also a power reserve indicator seen between the 3 and 6 o’clock positions, decorated with several arrows.

This is the first white gold version of this watch also featuring an enamel dial by Breguet. Overall a very traditional looking timepiece for current trends, crafted from the finest materials. Featuring the Breguet hands, characterized by their blued steel material and round hollowed out tips, the brand likes referring to as: hollow apple or crescent moon hands.

Breguet Classique 7787

This “Breguet Classique 7787” (References below) is powered by a self-winding mechanical movement, caliber 591 DRL with 25 jewels, 217 parts and 28,800 vph. Featuring two barrels, an 18k gold oscillating weight and a Swiss straight-line lever escapement in silicon.

There is some divergence on what movement this one was based on; some say the Lemania 8815 caliber, which itself was also based on another movement, the Longines caliber L990. Either way it gets the job done and serves as eye candy via the transparent caseback. Power reserve on this timepiece can last up to 38 hours, when fully wound. Mounted to the watch is a brown alligator strap via screw-in bars, instead of the more standard spring bars and secured to the wrist by a pin-buckle, matching the material of each corresponding version.
