Breguet Classique Tourbillon Quantième Perpétuel

The Classique Tourbillon Quantième Perpétuel is a daring design that retains all the classical design codes unique to Breguet. On the dial, Breguet lifts the hours and minutes off the dial with a three-dimensional opaque hours and minutes chapter disc. The opaque sapphire crystal disc is painted with Roman numerals and fitted with Breguet hands in blued steel. Beneath the disc, an engine-turned hobnail pattern decorates the dial, overarched by the semi-circular scale of the retrograde date.

A one-minute tourbillon is at 6 o’clock and is mounted on a slight dome. Its bridge is delicately chamfered and surmounted by a triple hand for the running seconds. The day is indicated by an instantaneous hand in the subdial at 9 o’clock. The engine-turning is in a gorgeous wave pattern. The month and leap year are indicated in the subdial at 3 o’clock. The engine-turning is in a shimmering sunburst pattern.

Turning the watch over reveals exquisite hand-engraved baseplate. The Classique Tourbillon QP 3797 is available with a 41mm platinum or rose gold case and is fitted with the Calibre 558QP2 manually wound movement with tourbillon and perpetual calendar.
