Introduction

Launched in 2005 and drawing inspiration from their long heritage as a fine watch manufacturer, Breguet revealed the La Tradition collection. Rooted in the aesthetic of their early pocketwatches, the La Tradition celebrates the majesty of mechanical watchmaking by revealing the majority of its movement on the dial side of the watch by using a small dial that only obscures a very small portion of the movement. Creating a rather avant-garde aesthetic, the La Tradition brings attention to Breguet’s incredible craftsmanship with its finely finished movement on display behind both sides of its case. Powered by the manual-wind cal. 507 DR, the ref. 7027BB that we have here is rather monochromatic in execution thanks to its anthracite movement, black engine-turned dial and 18kt white gold case. Contrasting its avant-garde display is a rather classical 37mm case with a coin-edge textured mid-case and fairly straight soldered lugs and a gently domed bezel that all combine to give the La Tradition a classic look that appeals to Breguet’s traditionally conservative styling.

THE DIAL

Providing an unencumbered view of its anthracite movement, the La Tradition features a small engine turned black dial at 12 o'clock, with a power reserve indicator just off it at 10 o'clock set on the movement itself.

TIMING MACHINE READOUT

This reading was taken (crown down) with a ONEOF Accuracy Boutique Edition timing machine at time of cataloging. It is provided as a courtesy only, and shall not be construed as a warranty or guarantee of any kind. Please refer to our terms and conditions of sale for more information.

THE CASE

Boasting a beautiful coin-edge textured midcase, the La Tradition is cold-rolled and then hand-finished to produce a wonderfully luxurious effect.

Condition

Watch is in overall near mint condition, appearing to have been only sparingly worn over the years. No major damage visible, only light sings of surface wear evident. The original strap has been replaced with an aftermarket one finished in french calf. Original buckle is included with the watch, as are the box and original paperwork.

Our Perspective

An incredibly unique and out-of-the-box timepiece by Breguet's traditionally conservative standards, the La Tradition showcases some of Breguet's finest craftsmanship in a package that still manages to retain the essence of the famed watchmaker.
