In plenty of time to consider for your Valentine, the newest Breguet small-size Classique takes on a darker look with a stunning Tahitian mother-of-pearl dial. Also new is the rich red heart on the seconds hand, possibly employed by Breguet to remind the wearer of the passing time.
The new 33.5mm rose gold watch is just the latest in this ongoing series of Breguet Classique watches made for smaller, feminine wrists. This Classique 9065 watch stands apart from earlier Classique models not only due to the new dial and rotating heart, but also for its red ruby crown, a garnet-colored date window (framed in rose gold) and an iridescent red satin strap. For enhanced glamour, Breguet also sets eighty-eight brilliant-cut diamonds along the bezel and on the lugs.
Inside Breguet places its estimable automatic 591A caliber, which is fully visible through the sapphire-crystal caseback and framed by a particularly intricate fluted case. Breguet is offering the watch as part of a series of twenty-eight numbered timepieces to be sold at certain Breguet boutiques. Price: $28,600.
