THE COMPLEXITY OF AN EXTRA-THIN
MOVEMENT IS EQUALLED ONLY BY
THE ELEGANCE AND SLENDERNESS
OF THE WATCH ITSELF.
THE REFLECTION OF A UNIQUE STYLE. PURE LINES AND A DELICATE DESIGN.
7.7MM
- THE ART OF BREGUET
POCKET WATCH No 4691 - BREGUET MUSEUM
WATCH No 4691 IS A HALF-QUARTER REPEATER FEATURING EQUATION OF TIME,
LUNAR CYCLE, CALENDAR AND POWER-RESERVE DISPLAYS.
THE QUEST FOR SLENDERNESS AND PURE STYLING HAS BEEN CONSISTENTLY
EXPRESSED THROUGH THE THINNEST POSSIBLE MOVEMENTS.
AESTHETIC HARMONY AND HOROLOGICAL EXCELLENCE.
WATCH No 4691 EMBODIES THE QUINTESSENCE OF THE ART OF BREGUET.
Pocket watch N° 4691, sold on October 13 th 1831 to Lord Henry
Seymour Conway, is one of the most complex thin watches ever
created and produced by Antoine-Louis Breguet. This exceptionally slim 7.7mm half-quarter repeater model is equipped with a
particularly large number of horological complications for a thin
watch from this period. Perfectly reflecting this constant quest for
elegance and aesthetic purity cherished by Breguet, this creation
also showcases a wealth of watchmaking expertise faithfully
cultivated since the 18 th century. In 2013, this timepiece joined
the prestigious collection of the Breguet Museum.

“ HE DREW OUT THE MOST DELICIOUS THIN WATCH THAT BREGUET
HAD EVER MADE. FANCY, IT IS ELEVEN O’CLOCK, I WAS UP EARLY.”
Honoré de Balzac, Eugénie Grandet, 1833
Featuring an exceptionally slender 7mm-high case and combining
ancestral expertise with contemporary innovations, the Classique
Extra-Thin Self-Winding Tourbillon 5377 is currently the world’s
thinnest self-winding tourbillon. And probably the most elegant.
Its dial features a daring play on the paradoxical asymmetry of
EXTRA-THIN SELF-WINDING TOURBILLON 5377
symmetrical effects to create a subtle and fascinating overall
impression. Intersecting lines, criss-crossed curves and four
different engine-turned patterns combine to create a complex yet
delightfully restrained work of art. Brilliantly merging æsthetic
purity with horological complexity, this timepiece is above all
a tribute to the tourbillon, the supreme complication invented by
Abraham-Louis Breguet in 1801. History is still being written ...
