A Salute to Breguet?

In 1786, Breguet was the very first watchmaker who engraved the guilloché onto the dials.


Breguet - Classique Model, Ref. 3500

Nowaday, a Breguet is easily recognizable from the guilloché craftsmanship, the blue pomme hands, and the coin-edge motif.

Case Diameter: 42mm

In 2009, I believe Ralph Lauren has taken the inspiration from Breguet, and developed its very first classic, slim timepiece.
