Breguet is a Swiss luxury watch company that was founded by Abraham-Louis Breguet in Paris in 1775. The company is widely regarded as one of the most prestigious and innovative watchmakers in the world. Also known for their elegant and timeless designs, Breguet watches are characterized by their clean lines, simple dials, and classic styling, which have made them enduring symbols of refinement and sophistication. For too long their designs felt under appreciated but they are now garnering more deserved attention in the collector community.
For a simple time-only dress or casual watch it is hard to beat the beauty of Breguet's Classique reference 3210. This piece circa 1990s is a true work of art and features a hand made guilloche dial, blued hands and small seconds register, all housed in an 18k white gold case with ultra-thin movement. Between the mint dial and unpolished case, this example stands out as a collector piece for the what might just be the perfect classical dress watch.
Dial: No blemishes under magnification.
Bezel: Sharp and appears unpolished. There is a light scuff towards 7 o-clock but it is not distracting.
Hands: No issues.
