-Description

The Classique collection is inspired by the Breguet's early creations.

The watches in the Classique collection have all the elements that characterise Breguet.

The guilloché engraving on the dial, the coin-edged engrave on the sides of the case and the Breguet hands are the essence of the Breguet watch.

In addition to its beautiful round form, the watch combines artistry and functionality with a simple, lean sophistication, legibility and high functionality.

Perpetual calendar is a very popular complication in luxury watchmaking that automatically displays the correct time and date until 2100, when there will be no leap year in the Gregorian calendar.

Breguet's perpetual calendar dates back some 50 years.

In the 1970s, Breguet was part of the French jeweller Chaumet, which was undergoing a revival.

The perpetual calendar watch was one of the watches created by Daniel Roth, a watchmaker who worked for Breguet at that time.

This Ref 3310 was created in 1986, just before Roth left Breguet, and was produced until around 2000.

According to documents, only 2-3 pieces were produced per year, as it took 30 craftsmen to make one Perpetual Calendar.

The case is made of 18K yellow gold.

The 36mm case diameter is rather large for a dress watch of this period, but small for a perpetual calendar watch with a complication mechanism.

The thickness of the watch is surprisingly low, at just 8 mm, despite being equipped with an automatic perpetual calendar.

The rotor, made of 21K gold, is also finely guillochéd, showing Breguet's pride in its attention to detail, even in places that cannot be seen.

The dial has no less than seven displays, but they are very neatly laid out and not cluttered.

The time is shown by the hour and minute hands in the centre of the dial.

Between 1 and 2 o'clock there is a moon phase display with clouds, stars and the moon.

A power reserve display at 10:30 indicates when the automatic watch needs to be wound.

The lower part of the dial features a perpetual calendar showing the month, day, date and leap year.

There are also two buttons on the right side of the case and one on the left. 

You can advance the calendar quickly with these buttons.

The guilloche engraving on the dial is basically Clous de Paris, but the moon phase and date are decorated with a wave-like pattern, while the power reserve is decorated with a gradation of fan-shaped patterns.

The movement is a automatic Cal.502DR.

It is an ultra-thin movement based on Frédéric Piguet's Cal. 70/71 and is used in various Breguet models.

Comes with box and paper, Breguet push pin and service paper.

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.
