With the new Héritage Grande Date 5410 model, Breguet adds a simpler option to its Héritage series, joining the Héritage 5400 (a chronograph) and the Héritage 5497 (a tourbillon). Though in a tonneau-shaped case which is curved along two axes, the Héritage collection shows us that even in a non-round shape, a Breguet remains unmistakably a Breguet.
The 5410 has a simple date + small seconds. The date aperture at 12 o’clock separately frames two date digits, while subtly intersecting the brushed minute scale ring; outside this scale are luminescent Roman numerals of varying size, and at 6 o’clock is a small seconds. As Breguet is apt to do, the silvered dial is decorated with several delightful looking engine-turned patterns, creating additional visual segmentation (and visual appeal) of the dial.
