In light of the watch world’s renewed interest in slim, elegant and skeletonized timepieces, the here offered specimen is a true gem. Dazzling with opulent beauty, the present Breguet wristwatch demands attention. Immaculately decorated with precision and dedicated craftsmanship, the present example is crafted in a yellow-gold case still preserved in great conditions with a coin-edge band, curved bezel and small lugs. Its perfect proportions combined with the thin case and the skeletonized structure make this watch one of the nicest examples ever produced from Breguet regarding time-only watches. The watch reveals, through a sapphire dial, the intricacy of the mechanism while, on the opposite side, the glazed sapphire case back allows for an even more impressive view of the complicated decorations and engravings of the caliber. The dial is not only skeletonized but is also embellished with an outer plain white reserve with painted radial Roman numerals for the hours, and pointed outer minute divisions, all completed by blued steel Breguet hands.
