In 2005, Breguet introduced its 7027 Tradition model, the first of its wristwatches to reveal the mechanisms of the movement on the dial side. Since then, the Tradition collection has become one of the most representative of the Breguet brand. In 2012 Breguet added a second timezone complication to the lineup: the Breguet Tradition 7067. Available in a 40mm rose or white gold case, this piece is a real beauty. Let’s take a closer look, shall we?
The video here provides a good walk-through of the 7067, white gold version.
As demonstrated in the video, the timezone change of the off-centre dial at 12 o’clock is enacted via the button at 10 o’clock on the caseband (see close-up photo below). A second engine-turned dial, executed in silver and black at 8 o’clock, shows the reference time. Above this dial is a day/night indicator.
The balance wheel is highlighted at 4 o’clock. The Breguet spring with its raised terminal curve and the inverted inline lever escapement are both in silicon.
As in the first Tradition model, the power-reserve indicator can be seen at the back of the watch through the sapphire-crystal caseback that also reveals a part of the hand-wound movement. The power reserve (50 hours) is indicated on the via a clever differential system (see video).
Price for the Breguet Tradition 7067? About $39,000.
