It had been designed years ago when having an “orbital” dual tourbillon was very impressive. Since that time, other watches have graced our courts with more complicated movements and much more tourbillons, but the caliber 588 remains impressive because of the sheer presence. It is similar to a comparing a giant naturally aspirated V8 engine (the 588) next to a highly tuned four-cylinder with functionality enhancements (many other complicated watch movements) that might possess the identical power but with a small overall footprint. This is a timepiece meant to wow and move the hearts of both the wearer and those seeing the wearer.From what I could tell, the mention 5349 Breguet Dual Tourbillon simply adds on a few additional millimeters of case size to the 5347 so as to fit all of the diamonds on the circumstance. It is certainly as masculine an implementation of a pave case as you can get. Our more aptly-sized buddy with stones at the solid platinum case goes up in price just a little to 820,000 Swiss francs (a little more in dollars). When you have the money to invest (or allocate) into a timepiece such as this, you know that you’ve arrived at the point in life were people ought to pay attention to you (or else). Thank you, Breguet, for making me feel like a king, if but for a day.

Having unveiled the Classique 7147 with a delicately beautiful enamel dial earlier in the year, Breguet Watches Nyc Replica has now dropped an enamel dial version of the thinnest automatic tourbillon on the market. Originally introduced in 2013 with a guilloché dial (as the ref. 5377), the Classique Tourbillon Extra-Plat Automatique 5367 checks in at just 7.45mm thick, case and all.
Measuring 42mm in diameter, the Classique Tourbillon Extra-Plat 5367 is available in both platinum and rose gold, in the classic Breguet style with a narrow bezel, straight lugs and reeded caseband.
The only difference lies in the dial, which is now grand feu enamel and rid of its power reserve indicator. It features the same off-centre layout as on the guilloche version – a feature found on many historical excentré Breguet pocket watches – but with Breguet numerals in black lacquer. And the minute track is again inspired by 19th century Breguet pocket watches, with tiny lozenges for the quarters and a mystical symbol every five minutes.
The watch is powered by the cal. 581 that has a tourbillon regulator running at 4Hz. In contrast to the understated dial, the movement is richly decorated – the bridges, barrel and oscillating weight are all hand-engraved.
While the dial is classically styled, the tourbillon is contemporary in construction and materials. The tourbillon cage is made of titanium, with both the balance spring and lever escapement made of silicon. And the barrel mounted on roller bearings instead of a traditional pivot point – helping the movement stay remarkably thin – while still managing an impressive 80-hour power reserve.
Another reason the movement measures just 3mm thick is the peripheral winding system. The narrow, semi-circular platinum rotor is mounted around the edge of the calibre, instead of adding height on top of the movement bridges.
Price and Availability
The Breguet Classique Tourbillon Extra-Plat Automatique 5367 (ref. 5367BR299WU) is expected to be priced slightly lower than the existing model with a guilloche dial, which costs US$149,500 or S$214,800 in pink gold.
