Official description

In 2005, the House of Breguet launched the Tradition collection of timepieces distinguished by a unique construction: the movement components are showcased on top of the mainplate. This year the original and remarkable line presents a new design version of the Tradition Automatique Seconde Rétrograde 7097 with a blue colored guilloche dial. This new model will be exclusively available in Breguet boutiques.

This wristwatch, like the rest of the collection, inspired by the subscription watches, recalls the genius of Abraham-Louis Breguet who first invented these one-hand pocket watches in 1796. They were fitted with a special movement of great simplicity and sold by subscription: a down payment of a quarter of the price on order and the rest on delivery. A.-L. Breguet used the movements of his subscription watches to create his first tact watches.
