A Week On The Wrist: The Breguet Classique Chonométrie

Here’s the thing. When most watch folks think of the best and brightest in high-end watchmaking today, we most often mention names like Patek Philippe, A. Lange & Söhne, F.P. Journe, Audemars Piguet, and Vacheron Constantin. For some strange reason, the name Breguet doesn’t usually make an appearance. Why? It’s hard to say, because Breguet, at least the historical brand, is absolutely the most important in all of watchmaking. But is Breguet of today the rightful heir to the brand that Abraham-Louis built, or is it simply another name chosen by a group of savvy investors from the headstone of a Swiss graveyard? This watch, the Breguet Classique Chronométrie 7727 answers this question – and resolutely. Breguet is here to play, and produce absolutely fascinating watches today. Let’s get into what I mean.

Finlay Norris says:

Great watch but too big : should have been like 38mm, so it would look more elegant *and* fit smaller wrists, ah well

MagnUm says:

the craziest aspect of this piece is the cut out of small running seconds hand 🙂

Mr Clowdee says:

I love it, from a conceptual standpoint, but I do find that the dial is too busy, and the 10Hz logo sticks out like a sore thumb. Beautiful piece though, all in all.

Philip A Winged says:

Wow that’s a beautiful watch. I also find the watch has an excellent size at 41mm with all those complications. One of the most unique watches I’ve seen!

Morris Nell says:

Archie says Breguet has terrible resale value…

sloergod says:

Lovely piece

Spectrumpicture says:

Every time he says a watch is responsibly priced expect it to be in the $10,000.00 range. When he says inexpensive expect $5,000 and below; when he says expensive just forget it.

Sombat cambodia says:

⌚See Video It Good Loove Thank You Big

Pasquale Franze says:

Do the hi power magnets have an effect on other parts of the watch, or are they just too small for that to happen?

peleti027 says:

Not my cup of tea…elegant but quite big….But so breguet!!! Nice review! Waiting for the next TalkingWatches guys!!!!!!!

Downtime says:

Alexander Stefanov says:

Breguet isn’t a resurrected brand like Blancpain. it has changed hands, but only from the Breguet family to Chaumet and then swatch or smh as it was then.

Mad Man says:

What kind of speed talking are we listening to? 😉

Guideaux Pelagos says:

Chonométrie needs an “R”. 😉

Alpay Bayraktar says:

This is nowhere near my style, nor will it ever be, but deary me what a beautiful art piece this is! All of the technology, methods, craftsmanship that’s been used to make this watch are absolutely and utterly marvelous!

Pieter P. says:

10Hz on the dial that is ugly it makes it a Quartz watch. That is stupid.

Ryan Bartlett says:

You’re missing an “r” in the word “Chronometrie” in the title.

Leoooonard says:

very underrated brand in 2016!
