To the Breguet Tradition Series, the inspiration of tradition and innovation come from the Breguet Subscription. Tradition series inherited tradition and at the same time looked forward to the future. Clever configuration matched the avant-garde style. Although this is a complication watch, Tradition 7057 has a neat layout. Techniques of two hundred years ago were employed in the processing, so even the smallest components were handled manually. Today, with you, we will have a look at the Breguet Tradition Series 7057.
Early in the Basel Watch Fair in 2011, Bregeut launched this Tradition 7057BR/R9/9W6. And this year, three types of Tradition 7057 were rolled out: one has a white gold case with NAC movement. The rest has rose gold cases with rose gold movement or grey NAC movement.
As another classic type in the Tradition series, 7057, through the super-modernization or super-condition, highlighted the architecture of this micro-machine. Actually, the way of producing it cannot be replicated because components—gears, escapement and pare-chute anti-shock system processing with old techniques, can be seen through the central panel. Tradition series from 7027 to 7067, the 7057 has minor different from the original 7027 except that the diameter of the case was increased another 3 mm, reaching 40 mm, which followed the trend of big-size case.
The case was made of 18 rose gold and reached 40 mm in terms of diameter of the case. No too much difference can be seen from the 7027. The most obvious difference is that the power reserve indicator has changed its place. One big feature is the big tourbillon. After winding, you can see the first tourbillon rotating in a high speed. Besides, the shock absorber is not KIF nor other absorbers, but a parachute-shaped absorber, which is the well-known pare-chute shock absorber.
The power reserve indicator is set on the 11 o’clock and indicates with hand which becomes clear to be seen. Breguet Tradition 7057 is fitted with a manual winding movement which provides 50 hours of power reserve. At the 12 o’clock lies the Breguet hour and minute hand. Roman time indexes are designed in white color matching a black dial, which makes reading clear to be seen.
The movement on the Breguet Tradition 7057is processed with NAC techniques. This processing on the surface will generate a carbon-color platinum sediment which makes the watch more playful. The manual winding movement, Cal.507DR can oscillate at a frequency of 21600 times and offer 50 hours of power reserve. Anyway, our visual feel on Breguet Tradition 7075 is that it gives a machine beauty.
