The Oscar...err, Golden Hand goes the Breguet Classique Chronometrie. It was Oscar-night last Friday night. It is the Grand Prix d'Horlogerie de Geneve, Patek Philippe Complications Skeleton Replica the Oscar-night of watchmaking. The winners in 15 categories and the overall winner were announced at a gala event held in Geneva. Gronefeld won the prize for Best Tourbillon Watch and was one of the most notable winners. They are the first winners from the Netherlands.First, I want to praise Breguet's Patek Patek Philippe Complications Replica Philippe Complications Skeleton Replica Classique Chronometrie7727, a simple but elegant dress watch that is actually quite exceptional. The watch's design is classic as one would expect from Breguet. However, the dial reads "10Hz", which already tells you that this watch is special. To improve precision and reliability, Breguet used magnetism, which is a common enemy for watches. Breguet's Patek Philippe Complications Skeleton Replica watchmakers have not only mastered the negative effects magnetism can have on a mechanical watch but also used magnetism to improve the stability, pivoting and rotation of the balance-staff. This makes the classic-looking Breguet a stunning hybrid that runs at 10Hz or 72,000 VPH!Patek Philippe Complications Skeleton Replica
We won't go into too many details, but we will later in the week Patek Philippe Complications Skeleton Replica publish a detailed hands-on report that will provide more information. For now, we can just say that the Breguet Classique Chronometrie 7727 looks amazing. It is a beautiful example of Breguet's design language, with a fluted Patek Philippe Complications Skeleton Replica caseband and welded lugs. Its movement is simply amazing and shares more similarities with the Porsche 918's engine than any other supercar. We will cover the details of using magnetism to increase precision and stability in a Patek Philippe Complications Skeleton Replica mechanical motion in a follow-up article that will be published later in the week. Breguet has created a micro-site dedicated to the Classique Chronometrie, and the inventions that lead to the 10Hz hybrid movement. Here are some photos from our Patek Philippe Grand Complication Replica Watches hands on with the Breguet Classique Chronometrie 7727 before we move on to the other GPHG Prize Winners.
