Footnotes

  • 寶璣,「Tourbillon Regulator」,5307BA/12/9V6型號,精緻黃金自動陀飛輪腕錶,配三針一線錶盤,2007年。附錶盒及證書。

    Breguet's Ref. 5307 belongs to the "Classique" series and showcases the company founder, Abraham Louis Breguet's (1747-1823) most famous invention first patented in 1801, the Tourbillon. The mesmerising cage visible through the aperture at 6 o'clock rotates once every 60 seconds and helps to minimise the effects of gravity on the balance wheel. The present example also features a regulator-style dial, with a subsidiary hour chapter ring and signature Breguet moon hands for the hours and minutes that heightens the watch's legibility. In the founder's true aesthetic, the dial depicts two distinct types of guilloché or engine-turning on the center and subsidiary dials, with a third satin-finish for the chapter rings. To the reverse, the finely hand-engraved calibre 587 entices the viewer through its beautifully, skeletonised rotor incorporating the signature letter "B" for Breguet.

    The resulting modern, high complication wristwatch, the Reference 5307, truly encapsulates the spirit of Abraham Louis Breguet, timeless and elegantly echoing the aesthetics of the founder's 18th century pocket watches, world famous amongst collector's today.
