Breguet Vintage Empire Dress Watch 1960s
Breguet vintage watches are exquisite and have a niche following of refined collectors worldwide. Like vintage Cartier, all the timepieces are one off specimens and made to order for special clients. Each vintage Breguet has matching case back and movement numbers and sometimes the dial is visibly numbered too.
Here we have a lovely specimen of the classic Breguet “Empire” style case with the coin edge finish on the side of the case, slim bezel and guilloche’ dial all ingredients that make this brand so coveteable.
The 18k gold case measuring 30mm x 40 mm (very long!) is in crisp pristine conditions with strong even lugs, prominent French hallmarks and a beautiful light to it.
The dial is in overall fine conditions with some aging at the edges of the dial. The guilloche’ is pristine along with the painted roman numerals and Breguet signature.
The movement manufactured by Peseux is in ultra clean condition, service history unknown. Winding and running fine.
On generic leather strap.
A fine watch for the refined collector!
