Introducing: Breguet Classique 5367 Ultra-Thin Automatic Tourbillon Watch

Breguet Classique 5367 Ultra-Thin Automatic Tourbillon

The Breguet Classique collection more than lives up to its name; it’s one of the most traditional watch collections out there, leaning on the Breguet heritage for pieces that seem unchanged for a good century or two. We’re talking elegant gold cases, rarefied complications and classical white enamel dials. Except, of course, for the newest version, the Classic Automatic Ultra-thin Tourbillon 5367.

Oh it takes most of the same elements as its 2017 predecessor. It shares the 42mm case, though this time in platinum; more importantly it has the same ultra-thin tourbillon, with a total thickness of just 7.45mm. Delicate is an understatement. The obvious difference however is the enamel.

Enamelling is a hard process, requiring painstaking layering and a furnace burning at 800 degrees Celsius. It’s difficult enough with white, where the artisans are building up layers of the same colour; here however they need to be more precise, as one layer over will make it too dark, one layer under too light.

The result is a stunning Breguet blue with the kind of depth you only get with grand feu enamel. Is it worth the effort? Eh. Is it a lovely reinterpretation of Breguet’s thinnest tourbillon? Definitely.

Beneath the dial is the calibre 581 which, aside from being equipped with a notably svelte tourbillon, boasts an unusual 80-hour power reserve thanks to its high-energy barrel design. The entire movement is, of course, finished beautifully. After all, it can’t be any more difficult that making the dial.
