HIGHLY COMMENDED: Mechanical Watches of the Year, Breguet Traditional Dame 7038


Gender politics, being what they are today, mean that watchmakers no longer define ladies’ watches by their size, and this 37mm masterpiece proves that they aren’t scrimping on delivering incredible artistry and complexity either.

Women with a penchant for prestigious watchmaking and keen on acquiring an iconic timepiece will be won over by this elegant and technical Breguet Tradition watch, which features a mother of pearl dial exhibiting almost all the movement components on either side of the mainplate.

The self-winding watch features a central barrel, a sub dial at 12 o’clock bearing hands directly driven by the barrel, as well as a balance-wheel and intermediate wheels forming an arc stretching from 4 to 8 o’clock.
