Baselworld is the most important marketplace and trendsetting show for the world’s watch and jewellery industry. Baselworld distinguishes itself as the only show that regroups all the key players from watchmakers to jewellers, from diamonds, pearls and gemstones dealers through to machines and supply industry. Recently, Breguet unveiled its highlight for Baselworld 2016.
With its Classique Phase de Lune Dame 9088, this year at Baselworld, Breguet enhances its collection of timepieces for women with a watch of timeless elegance. Its pure lines faithfully reproduce the hallmarks that have ensured the success of the House for over 240 years.
This 30 mm white-gold luxury watch, features fluted sides and a bezel and lugs enhanced by delicate brilliant-cut diamonds. The dial in white ‘grand feu’ enamel is adorned with Arabic numerals, also known as ‘Breguet numerals’ in reference to the founder of this watch brand, who designed them in 1783.

The minutes track, made up of tiny stars, together with stylised fleurs-de-lys for the five-minute fractions are another homage to the Breguet watchmaking tradition. The blued-steel hours and minutes hands are inspired by the open-tipped Breguet hands also invented in 1783. The display of information is completed by a small-seconds hand and moon-phase aperture at 6 o’clock.
The Classique Phase de Lune Dame houses the Breguet 537L calibre, a self-winding mechanical movement equipped with a silicon escapement and spiral. Visible through a sapphire crystal case back, the movement reveals a range of finishes that reflect the highest Haute Horlogerie tradition: ‘Côtes de Genève’ for the bridges and ‘barley grain’ engine-turning for the gold oscillating weight.
The Classique Phase de Lune Dame timepiece is also offered in a rose-gold version, and a non-gem-set version. In addition, a model featuring natural mother-of-pearl, complete with Breguet hands and Roman numerals is also available in white or rose gold, either gem-set or non-gem-set. The watch brand has thus added a total of eight models to its Classique collection and women’s range.
