TRADITION GMT 7067
EXCELLENCE IN MOVEMENT
Like the other watches in the Tradition collection, this model’s design takes inspiration from a subscription watch with a visible mechanism made by the great watchmaking firm in the 18th century.
With the Tradition 7027, launched in 2005, Breguet opened up a new line of watches all equipped with a special feature: the mechanism can be seen above the watch plate, resulting in a strong visual impact. The attractions of the Tradition GMT 7067 are maintained through the unique architecture of the mechanism, so that the main components are all visible, including the balance wheel at 4 o’clock. The watch is not only beautiful to look at, but is practical too, with a second time zone. A guilloché silver disc at 12 o’clock is home to the traditional blue “moon tip” Breguet hands, making their way around an hour rim with Roman numerals. This is where local time is shown. A second area, offset at 8 o’clock, is dedicated to the reference time. A silvered day/night indicator is placed above, so the owner can keep track of time during trips from one continent to another.
In the elegant 40mm-wide, white-gold case with fluted sides, a hand-wound movement is at work and supplies a generous power reserve of 50 hours. When you turn the watch over, the sapphire crystal shows another aspect of the watch mechanism. The calibre may be complex, but the time zone is easy to change using a monopusher at 10 o’clock.
When you are on your travels, the Tradition GMT 7067 is worn with an alligator leather strap matching all elegant styles.
