In order to warm up Baselworld 2018, the inventor of the tourbillon Breguet launched the first new work of 2018: the classic complex series 5367 ultra-thin self-winding tourbillon The watch, with a ‘big fire’ enamel dial, further enriches the classic and complex series.
The new classic and complicated series 5367 watch provides a delicate and simple interpretation of the tourbillon, which occupies the most important position on the minimalist dial. The disc information has been carefully reduced to basic elements in order to give due weight to the tourbillon mechanism. Compared with the 5377 watch released in 2013, the upcoming 5367 watch in 2018 abandons the power reserve display.
In order to focus on the key elements, Breguet chose a hand-chamfered tourbillon stand with a spinel inlay in the center. Breguet’s blued-steel hands are in sharp contrast with the traditional white flawless enamel dial, which ensures perfect readability of the hour and minute information. The graduated circle with Breguet Arabic numerals is eccentric and is centered at 11 o’clock, so it faces the tourbillon at 5 o’clock. This display layout is reminiscent of the timepiece created by Abraham-Louis Breguet, and the brand founder changed the aesthetic concept of the era.
Although the appearance of the dial side is simple and low-key, the movement’s retouching is colorful. The bridge, barrel and rotor are all carved by hand. The oscillating weight is made of platinum, has greater inertia, and is placed on the outer edge, which not only allows people to see the movement more clearly, but also ensures that the movement is delicate and thin. The classic complex 5367 watch is 7.45 mm thick and the movement is only 3 mm. Calibre 581 oscillates at 28,800 vibrations / hour (4 Hz) and provides a power reserve of up to 80 hours. This unique performance comes from the ‘high-energy’ barrel. Breguet uses a patented structure to increase the number of spring turns, thereby increasing the power reserve.
