Just wow. I have been thinking about adding one of these for a while. Really great watches. Also that Millenary is pretty sweet.

Hopefully this helps nudge you in the right direction.

Beautiful watch! Congrats to those who own it! :)

Just wondering - there doesn’t appear to be a seconds hand since i only see the hour and minute hands & the power reserve indicator?

These versions (the original versions) 7027 do not, I do not think that it needs one as you see the balance moving and know your watch is working.
The 7097 has Rétrograde seconds and is automatic.

Where do you get your straps from?

I had a few made at Jean Rousseau in NYC. Would love a less expensive alternative if possible.

This blue one was custom made by JR in NYC as well.

I have had great experiences with "A Collected Man", although they don't have gator options. But they're a great option for suede, calf, etc.

Breguet Tradition - Thoughts?





The depth of this piece is just incredible.

Breguet Tradition, white gold with brown croc strap?

[QUOTE=_speedmaster_;10271856]I ended up with the WG. I agree, I like the contrast a little better plus I was a little worried about the versatility of the YG model.

Honestly, I love this watch. The finishing of the coin edge case, welded lugs, frosted bridges and plates are all amazing. Being able to see the wheel train in action is constant theater. Also, maybe not the biggest deal to most, but it is incredibly satisfying to wind this watch. Short of a Zeitwerk, I've yet to feel a winding mechanism as crisp and mechanical as this.


What are everyone's thoughts -- if you care to share -- on the white gold, but with a brown croc strap? I am looking to make my first luxury watch purchase and have decided on one of the Breguet Tradition 70xx models. I like the yellow gold, but it will be a little too much for me (color wise). I like the white gold as well, but I prefer the brown croc strap... I would like to hear any feedback on this combination since I haven't seen pictures of a Tradition with a WG/brown croc combo anywhere. Would really appreciate any input!

Have we talked about this?:




I believe the following:

1) See the cut out track for the retrograde seconds?

It is 3 minute markers wide. So, the minutes can be read exactly since one obscured minute marker is defined by the right edge of the track. The next marker is defined by the dot of the seconds marker in the middle. And the final obscured minute is defined by the left edge of the track. You see? Nothing is missing.


2) If this is true, then I am apparently the only person on earth not working for Breguet to notice this. I've pointed it out to owners and they were like "Huh? Oh!"... Maybe you noticed it, too?

Anyway, I like it when watchmakers do things that way.

This is a lovely watch and the blue dial adds a lot while maintaining the elegant sobriety of the look. Super and like the other watches of the Breguet tradition line, an ode to mechanical watchmaking's past, present, and future.
