Lot Essay

The present timepiece is a superb and stunning example of one of Breguet’s incredibly rare steel-cased triple calendar chronograph wristwatches. To date, probably less than 10 examples are known publicly. Consigned by its private owner, it is one of the most attractive and original of the known examples.

The dial, with blue tachymeter scale and applied gold indexes is extremely beautiful, gently mellowing over the years to an even light champagne colour. The layout of the dial and the solid case proportions of this fine chronograph echo the greatest watch designs of all times, notably Rolex’s' Dato Compax’ and Patek Philippe’s references 1518 and 2499. Comparing it to its peers, it is inevitable though to immediately spot the more playful design of the dial, most notably the outer blue date ring. It is also noteworthy to underline that these exclusivities were made in much smaller quantities than their counterparts from Geneva. In fact, it is interesting that the few known examples of the Breguet triple calendar moon phase watch in steel were generally made and sold several years apart from each other, spanning the 1950s, 60s and 70s. This strongly suggests that they were made only upon request and never in any quantity.

Now extremely sought after and coveted by collectors, these triple calendar moon phase chronographs by the celebrated house of Breguet are a connoisseur's choice and a significant prize for the collector of vintage steel complicated wristwatches.
