  • Catalogue Essay

    The reference 5177 is quintessential Breguet. The elegant 38mm diameter case is understated and fits squarely within the brand’s “Classique” collection. The watch is highlighted by the wonderful white “Grand feu” enamel dial with Arabic numerals, and complimented by the “Breguet” hands with “moon” tip ends. Breguet worked to streamline both the mechanical and the design of watches, and in 1783 he developed these uncompromising hands that today are one of the hallmarks of the brand. The hands, along with the center seconds hand, are slim and elegant, and add to the visual effect of the overall design.

    The reference is offered today in pink gold, yellow gold, and white gold like the present model, and all are fitted with the automatic caliber 777Q featuring a white gold oscillating weight with guilloché finish, another hallmark of Breguet’s masterful skill. This example is in excellent overall condition and accompanied by its certificate, presentation and hang tag.

  • Artist Biography


    Swiss • 1775

    Established in 1775 by Abraham Louis Breguet, widely considered the greatest watchmaker of all time, the storied brand continues to thrive in the modern era, creating exceptional high-end watches as the Swatch Group's premier prestige brand. Some of the most important and lasting inventions in watchmaking are attributed to Abraham Louis Breguet, including the tourbillon, shock resistance and the use of hammers and gongs employed in nearly all minute repeating watches made since.

    Eighteenth and nineteenth century Breguet pocketwatches are especially sought-after by collectors, and many of them were made for the elite of European society, including Napoléon and Marie Antoinette. Key wristwatches from the twentieth century include oversized dress watches, two-register chronographs, triple calendars and Type XX aviator's chronographs made for the French military and civilians.
