Breguet unveils unorthodox take on classic timepiece

Breguet is thinking outside the box for Basel this year, with a wonky dial and off-centered tourbillion found on its latest timepiece.

The Classique Tourbillon Extra-Plat Automatique 5367 is the latest grande complication from the brand; the 42mm watch comes with a slightly off-centered dial and sports a titanium tourbillion function at the 5 o’clock.

The piece clocks in at 7.45mm thick thanks to the Calibre 581 coming in at just 3mm. The movement allows for the hours and minutes, and 80-hour power reserve and small seconds on the tourbillion axis.

The bridges, barrel and oscillating weight are hand-engraved. Crafted in platinum for greater inertia, the latter rotates on the periphery of the calibre, thus providing a clearer view of the movement as well as ensuring its slimness.

The complication with its Grand Feu enamel dial is available in rose gold or platinum versions, respectively fitted with a mahogany brown or blue alligator strap and both featuring a rhodium-plated movement.
