Breguet presents a new Quantième Rétrograde 7597, which joins the two existing variants, one in rose gold and the other in white gold and both with a silvered dial. The new variant that shares the white gold case of one of the previous variants now features a regal blue dial.
The new retrograde date does not present any aesthetic changes, featuring the traditional 40mm diameter case, slender and right lugs, sapphire glass on both sides, case with serrated profile around it, crown at three o’clock and screwing pusher at 10 o’clock that serves to set the date.
On the anthracite-toned skeletonized dial, a blue off-centre dial with a Clous de Paris hand-guilloché motif at 12 o’clock, print Roman hour markers in white and the brand’s hour and minutes pomme hands. On the same blue hue, a semi-ring in the southern hemisphere scaled with the days of the month in white, which works in partnership with the central blue hand.
Inside operates the ingenious in-house Caliber 505Q self-winding movement, which comes equipped with an inverted lever escapement, silicon horns and balance-spring, gold oscillating weight, in a total of 269 components and which offers up to 50 hours of power reserve.
Finally, the watch is offered with a blue alligator leather strap with a white gold pin buckle and can be purchased at the brand’s official boutiques and authorized retailers for a price of €39,800.
