Contemporary Elegance with the New Breguet Classique 7337

The Watches of Switzerland Group 3 minute read

An emblematic timepiece of the Classique Collection, the new Classique 7337 Calendar features a modern style while retaining the strong codes that have forged the brand's history. Available in white gold, the Classique Calendar 7337 joins our current Breguet collection.

The importance of details

This new interpretation by Breguet is resolutely contemporary without compromising its aesthetic origins. The brand’s various decorative skills are present throughout the watch and its off-centered dial is adorned with a very fine Clous de Paris hobnail guilloché pattern, hand-engraved on a rose engine by the in-house artisans. The outer dial features a circular barleycorn motif and the moon phase at 12 o’clock is designed to provide powerful realism. Its hand-hammered gold moon and the clouds surrounding it have been given a fine sandblasted treatment with a matt texture, whilst its sky is coated with a blue lacquer composed of spangles, subtly revealing the stars depending on the angle viewed.

The movement

At the heart of its 39mm case beats Calibre 502, one of Breguet’s thinnest movements at just 2.4mm thick. Its barrel is open to enhance this slim aesthetic while guaranteeing constant energy and performance. To provide maximum space for the main movement elements, its oscillating weight is off centered, and is thus integrated within a minimum thickness. This rhodium-plated self-winding movement consists of 236 components and the piece is equipped with a silicon balance-spring, as well as an escapement featuring an inverted straight-line pallet-lever with silicon horns. By using Silicon horns, it ensures resistance to corrosion and wear, whilst being insensitive to the influence of magnetic fields and improves the precision of the timepiece. Its movement seen through its sapphire caseback highlights Breguet’s dedication to decoration, with hand-engraved detailing and chamfered finishes. Finally, the balance of the new Classique Calendar 7337 oscillates at a frequency of 3Hz and has a 45-hour power reserve.

The Classique collection

Featuring a design representing a blend of purity and refinement, the Classique collection faithfully illustrates the strong aesthetic of the brand's origins. Above and beyond his talent as a watchmaker and inventor, Abraham-Louis Breguet was also one of the first designers. When the company was founded in Paris in 1775, baroque style was booming. Abraham-Louis Breguet invented and initiated the neoclassical style in watchmaking – an aesthetic vision that gave the dials an avant-garde look while making it easier to read the watch's indications. He created open-tipped hands, the guilloché pattern and the off-centered dial, to name but a few of these novel stylistic features. The latter achievement appeared as of 1812 on pocket watches and established the brand’s DNA. Inspired by these creations, the first interpretation of the Classique 7337 wristwatch was introduced in 2009. The 2022 version is a contemporary and elegant incarnation of the original watch, while remaining faithful to the powerful signatures of the Classique line.
