Chronographs have been part of Breguet’s history and tradition since the year of its foundation, first as pocket watches and later as wristwatches. Among the most iconic models we certainly find the Classique, expression of the brand’s revolutionary principles for watches’ design: pure forms, harmonious proportions and elegant dials. The present reference 3230, with its refined style and attention to every detail, impresses with its quality and beauty. The 18k rose gold circular case shows two slightly oxidized round chronograph buttons on the distinctive coin-edge-band of this Breguet models. The dial has its unmistakable two-tone silver decoration with guilloché engravings, a shiny capitonné ring with painted Roman numerals and the iconic blue steel Breguet-style hands. The counters for the constant seconds and 30 minutes registration reproduce the same structure, in miniature, of the dial with a shiny silver edge and wavy guilloché workmanship. The watch is also provided with a certificate of origin with a purchase guarantee dated 09/03/1990.
