Let´s assume we had the money to buy one of these Breguet´s. Ladies: Is this a watch you would buy? Gentlemen: Would you like to see one of these colorful tourbillons on the wrist of your beloved ones?
We all know that Breguet is one of the most reputable and innovative watch manufacturers in Switzerland. In terms of high-class tourbillons sold there is no one else worldwide performing better than Breguet.
Abraham-Louis Breguet´s (1747 – 1823) invention of the tourbillon was patented in 1801. The family Hayek, the today´s successors of the watchmaker genius, brought the name Breguet back to pomp and circumstances. But one thing until today was always eminent: The look of a Breguet was conservative. With some exceptions of course, but never as colorful as we see now …
Now I see these two flamboyant tourbillons that of course also exist in a much more conservative execution and I personally have to admit: Not bad at all!
I know: Everyone’s opinion is bound to be subjective.
So let us forget the price of 99.000 Euro for the next minutes and just see the extravagant white gold watch being moreover decorated with 99 brilliants.
Ladies and gentlemen allow me the question: Is this a cool watch?
Would you buy the Breguet Classique Grande Complication Tourbillon for your beloved ones?
Would you like to see this Breguet on her wrist?
Would a woman wearing such a flamboyant timepiece attract your attention?
If there are also women (I hope so! 🙂 ) among my readers… Ladies, please let me know: Would you buy this Breguet and wear it?
I recommend you to enlarge the pictures by clicking on them once and then again…
