In commemoration of Chinese New Year, also known as the Spring Festival, the House of Breguet dedicates a special timepiece to the lunar zodiac sign of the year. The model Classique 7145 pays tribute to the art of guilloche, with a hand-engraved image of one of the most cherished breeds of dog in China.
The Classique 7145 Chow-Chow is an exquisite work of art. It exalts the beauty of gold while accentuating its contrasts. A mechanical self-winding movement visible through a sapphire caseback gives the final touch to this prestigious timepiece.
