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

Abraham-Louis Breguet invented the various mechanisms essential to a wristwatch, as well as the design parts such as Breguet hands and Breguet numerals during the pocket watch era.

He is also known for inventing complex mechanisms such as tourbillons and perpetual calendars.

About 70% of the mechanism installed in modern wristwatches is said to have been invented and improved by Abraham-Louis Breguet, and is also described as "Leonardo da Vinci in the watch world".

Abraham-Louis Breguet's watches have been praised in every court in Europe, with customers such as Queen Marie Antoinette and Napoleon Bonaparte.

Currently, we continue to make luxury watches as the highest brand of the Swatch Group.

"Classic" is a collection inspired by the works of the brand when it was born.

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

The guilloche carving on the dial, the coin edge decoration on the side of the case, the Breguet hands, and the design are just like the charm of the brand.

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

This Ref.BA 3210 has a case made of 18K yellow gold, and the size is 30.5mm, which is a small size that can be said to be a boy's size, and it is a size that women can use without discomfort.

Sapphire is attached to the tip of the crown.

The above coin edge decoration is also a big feature, but the lug part is also different from other watch brands. The strap is screwed instead of a spring bar. The

dial is also made of 18K gold, like the case, and all are guilloché engraved.

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

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

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

The low-beat hand-wound movement Cal.818 / 4 is installed.

Jaeger-LeCoultre's Cal.818 is a super-luxury machine, and LeCoultre's Cal.818 was supplied not only to Breguet but also to Vacheron Constantin, Audemars Piguet and Chopard.

Breguet tuned up and adjusted the accuracy with 5 posture differences, which is a very difficult machine.

Breguet has acquired the year of manufacture of this watch and the information of the watch. (Email only)

A genuine YG buckle is attached to the 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.
