The Classique collection is inspired by the Breguet's early creations.
The watches in the Classique collection have all the elements that characterise Breguet.
The guilloché engraving on the dial, the coin-edged engrave on the sides of the case and the Breguet hands are the essence of the Breguet watch.
In addition to its beautiful round form, the watch combines artistry and functionality with a simple, lean sophistication, legibility and high functionality.
Perpetual calendar is a very popular complication in luxury watchmaking that automatically displays the correct time and date until 2100, when there will be no leap year in the Gregorian calendar.
Breguet's perpetual calendar dates back some 50 years.
In the 1970s, Breguet was part of the French jeweller Chaumet, which was undergoing a revival.
The perpetual calendar watch was one of the watches created by Daniel Roth, a watchmaker who worked for Breguet at that time.
This Ref 3310 was created in 1986, just before Roth left Breguet, and was produced until around 2000.
According to documents, only 2-3 pieces were produced per year, as it took 30 craftsmen to make one Perpetual Calendar.
The case is made of 18K yellow gold.
The 36mm case diameter is rather large for a dress watch of this period, but small for a perpetual calendar watch with a complication mechanism.
The thickness of the watch is surprisingly low, at just 8 mm, despite being equipped with an automatic perpetual calendar.
The rotor, made of 21K gold, is also finely guillochéd, showing Breguet's pride in its attention to detail, even in places that cannot be seen.
The dial has no less than seven displays, but they are very neatly laid out and not cluttered.
The time is shown by the hour and minute hands in the centre of the dial.
Between 1 and 2 o'clock there is a moon phase display with clouds, stars and the moon.
A power reserve display at 10:30 indicates when the automatic watch needs to be wound.
The lower part of the dial features a perpetual calendar showing the month, day, date and leap year.
There are also two buttons on the right side of the case and one on the left.
You can advance the calendar quickly with these buttons.
The guilloche engraving on the dial is basically Clous de Paris, but the moon phase and date are decorated with a wave-like pattern, while the power reserve is decorated with a gradation of fan-shaped patterns.
The movement is a automatic Cal.502DR.
It is an ultra-thin movement based on Frédéric Piguet's Cal. 70/71 and is used in various Breguet models.
Comes with box and paper, Breguet push pin and service paper.

About Complete Service
Complete service, sometime called overhaul is the work of disassembling a mechanical product down to its individual parts, cleaning and reassembling it to bring it closer to its new state of performance.
Roughly speaking, the overhaul procedure is as follows.
1. Separate into case and movement
2. Disassemble the movement
3. Inspection and pre-cleaning of wear condition of each part
4. Wash parts with a special machine
5. Lubrication and assembly
6. Waterproof test
7. Final adjustment and running test.
Some movements are made up of hundreds of parts, but it is a very meticulous process of disassembling them one by one, inspecting them all, cleaning them, and reassembling them.
If you don't overhaul, the oil will deteriorate just like a car, and the risk of wear and damage to parts increases, causing a decrease in accuracy and, in severe cases, not working.
There is also the reason that it will be very expensive to replace parts after they are found to be damaged, so we recommend overhauling once every 2-3 years for economical and long-term use.
Vintage watches have been used for decades, and even the stainless steel used in many watches has rounded corners that were originally sharp, and has many small scratches even though the mirror finish should be beautiful. state.
At Arbitro, some watches are sold with a new finish, based on the idea that you can purchase them in beautiful condition and use them for a long time.
In particular, gold-cased dress watches are finished to bring out the best of the precious metal case.
The watches sold by us that have been given a new finish are shot in very high definition, so you can see that the edges stand out and the light is reflected by the mirror finish.
Also, depending on the case or bracelet, there are cases where multiple finishes such as mirror finish and hairline finish are mixed, but there are not many craftsmen who can distinguish between them and finish them at a high level.
In addition, the “thinness of the case” is also a part that is greatly influenced by the skill of the craftsman.
A watch that has become thinner and has thinner lugs is far from its original design, and the appearance becomes unbalanced.
It is a very precise work that brings the case closer to the original finish by eliminating scratches and dents while reducing the thickness of the case to the utmost limit.
Of course, there are cases where it is better to use the watch as it is, in order to emphasize the history of the watch and its original condition.
We look at each watch and judge whether it is best to finish it before selling it.
