Truly, Breguet did produce an “optional” dial for the Breguet 1160 Marie Antoinette, which I have taken pictures of next to the pocket watch. I don’t know if it’s ever actually been put into the pocket watch, however it’s interesting that it is. You may find out more about this Breguet 1160 Marie Antoinette pocket watch here through Breguet.Without the assistance of any special lighting or a tripod (thanks, Legion of Honor) I attempted to catch the Breguet 1160 Marie Antoinette pocket watch as well as possible. I hope that you can at least enjoy the majesty and grand presence that this exceptionally impressive modern marvel has. In addition to being the stuff of collectors’ fantasies, additionally, it describes to so many people why a pursuit in fine timepieces is both intellectually and emotionally rewarding. I am so happy to have had an opportunity to check it out. Regrettably, I never got to meet Nicolas G. Hayek senior myself — nor will I ever. He’s somebody who, at this stage in my “opinion career,” I believe I would have had some great interactions with. Some amusing slogans: as a youthful watch author, I had submitted some interview questions to Mr. Hayek. I have always harbored the fear — albeit crazy — that my questions might have been one of the last things he ever saw.I am pleased to announce that the Breguet 1160 Marie Antoinette pocket view is readily available for people to see at the Breguet: Art & Innovation In Watchmaking special exhibition which will be held at the San Francisco Legion of Honor from September 19th, 2015, until January 10, 2016. I highly recommend checking out this really wonderful display of historical Breguet timepieces if you be in the San Francisco area.
Having unveiled the first ever Tradition for ladies not too long ago at Baselworld, Breguet Watch Numbers Replica has just announced another variant of the model for Baselworld 2017 that takes place in March next year.
While the first Tradition Dame 7038 was in white gold with a blue-grey mother of pearl dial, the latest version offers a rosier look. The case is 18k pink gold and the dial is an iridescent white mother of pearl decorated with hobnail guilloche in the centre.
The rest of the watch remains the same as the original model, with the 37mm case featuring a bezel set with 68 brilliant-cut diamonds and a crown topped with a synthetic ruby of the sort used in watch movements.
Plated in rhodium for a bright silvery finish, the movement is the calibre 505SR that’s automatic and equipped with the pallet fork and hairspring in magnetism-resistant silicon.
Price and availability
The new Tradition Dame 7038 should be available sometime in 2017. Though the price has not been announced, the first version cost US$38,900 or SS$55,900, so expect this to be priced similarly.
