Breguet Messidor Tourbillon Photomontage  2 Comments


I am very pleased to share here my Messidor Photomontage images. The first time I saw this beautiful timepiece was at Tempus. Unfortunately at Tempus I did not have the time to photograph it together with the Tradition Fusee Tourbillon. So I made arrangements with Breguet Singapore for me to photograph this watch at their headquarters.
This watch clearly embodies a different style and philosophy from the Tradition Fusee Tourbillon - the Fusee being an open dial whereas the Messidor is a well hand finished skeletonised movement. It was specifically made to celebrate the contribution of A.L. Breguet's invention of the tourbillon. On the wrist this watch's quality in design and craftsmanship is unmistakable. It comes in either rose or white gold. My preference is the rose gold as it shows off the movement well in contrast. The bevelled skeleton movement is shown off clearly through the sapphire crystals (both front and back). The most interesting design element for me is the floating tourbillon cage which appears to float inside a bezel of rose gold. The rose gold bezel is mounted onto the front crystal so it gives a three dimensional feel to the dial.
The watch is moderately slim and sized at 40mm in diameter - making this a very tasteful dress watch. A beautifully crafted timepiece with only one small personal comment - I found the blue hands of the watch, while its the classic Breguet hands, is difficult to read especially in low light.

The Messidor was photographed with the kind permission of Breguet at the Breguet Headquarters, Singapore.
