-Description


BREGUET is a long-established watch brand founded in 1775 by the genius watchmaker Abraham-Louis Breguet.

In the era of pocket watches, Abraham-Louis Breguet invented various mechanisms essential to wristwatches, as well as design elements such as Breguet hands and Breguet numerals.

He is also known for inventing complications such as the tourbillon and perpetual calendar.

Abraham-Louis Breguet is said to have invented and improved about 70% of the mechanisms installed in modern wristwatches.

The watches made by Abraham-Louis Breguet were admired in all European courts, with customers such as Marie Antoinette of France and Napoleon Bonaparte.

Currently, it continues to produce luxury watches as the Swatch Group's top brand.

"Classic" is a collection inspired by works from the time the brand was born.

The watches of the Classic collection are packed with all the elements that characterize Breguet.

The guilloche engraving on the dial, the coin-edge decoration on the side of the case, and the Breguet hands are all part of the brand's appeal.

In addition to the beautiful round form, it is a watch that combines artistry and functionality, such as a simple and lean atmosphere, high visibility, and high functionality.

This Ref.BB 3150 has an 18K white gold case and a size of 32.5mm, which is rather small, giving it a discreet presence typical of a dress watch. It is large enough for women to use without discomfort.

A sapphire is attached to the tip of the crown.

The coin edge decoration mentioned above is a major feature, but the lugs are also different from other watch brands. The strap is screwed instead of a spring bar.

The dial, like the case, is made of 18K gold and is fully guilloché.

The largest area is a pyramid-like pattern called Clou de Paris, and the index part has a satin touch.

If you look closely, there are parts with slightly different patterns, and this is the part where you can most feel the artistry of the watch brand, which is also called a craft.

The great thing about Breguet is that this engraving is not done by a fully automatic machine, but by a craftsman using a manual machine.

The movement is equipped with a manually wound Cal.839.

Based on Jaeger-LeCoultre's Cal.839, an ultra-thin machine born in 1975, it's just 1.84mm thick.

The successor, Cal.849, is said to be the thinnest hand-wound movement currently in production.

In addition to Breguet, this machine was also supplied to Chopard, IWC, and Van Cleef & Arpels.

Breguet has obtained the date of manufacture and shipping record certificate for this watch. (Email only)

A genuine WG buckle is attached to a black leather strap.

About Service
Service(Overhaul) is the process of disassembling a mechanical product down to its component parts, cleaning, and reassembling it to bring it back to the state of performance when it was new.

The overhaul procedure is roughly explained as follows
Separate the case and movement.
Disassemble the movement
Inspect each part for wear and tear and perform a preliminary cleaning.
Cleaning by a special machine
Lubrication and assembly
6. Water-resistance inspection (water-resistance function guaranteed)
7. Adjustment and running test
This is the process of the watchmaking process.

Some movements consist of several hundred parts, which are disassembled piece by piece, inspected, cleaned, and reassembled in an extremely precise process.

Without overhaul, just like a car, the oil deteriorates and the risk of wear and tear on the parts increases, causing a loss of precision or, in serious cases, the inability to run.

We recommend an overhaul every two to three years to ensure economical and long-lasting use of your watch.


About new finishing (polishing)

Vintage watches have been used for decades, and even the stainless steel used in many watches has become rounded at the corners, or has many small scratches on the surface that should be beautiful with a mirror finish.

At Albitro, we believe that our watches should be purchased in beautiful condition and used for a long time, so we sell them with a new finish.

Especially for dress watches with gold cases, we finish them to bring out the best of the precious metal case.

The watches sold at Albitro that have been newly finished are photographed in very high resolution, so you can see the edges are sharp and the mirror finish reflects the light.

Some cases and bracelets have a mixture of mirror and hairline finishes, but not many craftsmen are able to distinguish between them and finish them at a high level.

The "thinning of the case" is another area that is highly dependent on the skill of the craftsman. A watch with skinny lugs is far from its original design, and its appearance is unbalanced.

It is a very meticulous process to reduce the thinness of the case as much as possible while eliminating scratches and dents to bring the watch closer to its original finish.

Of course, in some cases, it is better to leave the watch in its original condition as it is, as it is the history of the watch and the original condition is important.

We look at each watch individually and decide whether it is best to finish it before selling it.
