For Baselworld 2014, Brequet once again showed the world the designing and manufacturing prowess with another awesome grand complication watch. The Breguet Classique Tourbillon Quantième Perpétuel 3797 features a very large tourbillon and a perpetual calendar.
The tourbillon on the reference 3797 is fully exposed in an opening in the dial, and the time sub-dial (situated at the 12 o’clock position) has been raised to improve legibility. Just above this main sub-dial is the retrograde pointer date hand. The two smaller sub-dials on the left and right are the date and month indicators, respectively. Coupled with the heat-blued hands and a guilloché dial, the reference 3797 is a beautiful watch.
Made out of 18k rose gold, the watch is 41 mm in diameter and water-resistant to 3 bar (30m). The reference 3797 is powered by a manually wound Breguet Cal. 558QP2 with 50 hours of power reserve. It comes with leather strap with a triple-blade folding clasp. For more info, please visit breguet.com
