Breguet Breguet Classique 9078 Enamel Painted Watch Welcome New Year

To celebrate the 2017 Chinese Year of the Rooster, Breguet uses exquisite miniature enamel painting techniques, combining 19th-century French Impressionist ‘stipple’ and Chinese ancient porcelain figure painting style, and uses traditional Chinese folk acrobatics ‘hand shadow play’ The theme of the Year of the Rooster is irreplaceable in artistic value, and it is even more unique in the zodiac-themed watch that has become so popular recently.

Enamel painting is one of the most difficult challenges in watchmaking, symbolizing the highest achievement of superb craftsmanship and artistic aesthetics. Enamel pigment is composed of ore powder. Each coloring process must be sintered at a high temperature of 800 degrees Celsius or more. If it is not careful, it may be deformed. In addition, each pigment cannot be tinted, and must be ground with ore with different ingredients one by one. The production process is quite complicated. Among the enamel paintings, the most difficult technique is Enamel Miniature, that is, painting with enamel colors between square inches. Because the space of the faceplate is limited, I want to draw the theme patterns beautifully. It is necessary to paint carefully under the microscope with a brush that is as fine as a hair. Not only does it require a skilled enamel painter, but it also takes a very long time to complete a work, and its artistic value is of course important.
Breguet’s enamel dial watches are very rare. In the past, they were mainly large white fire enamel dials. In recent years, a very small number of miniature painted enamel dial watches have been launched. For example, two Breguet Classique 9078 painted enamel watches released in 2016: the Versailles rose face plate and the starry night horse face plate, the former is taken from the portrait of the French queen Marie Antoinette (Marie Antoinette); The latter is inspired by the white horses in the starry night.

Classique 9078 Versailles rose watch
The Classique 9078 painted enamel watch is inspired by the portrait of Marie Louise Elisabeth Vigee-Lebrun, Mary Antoinette and Rose, painted in 1783. This original painting on the theme of the rose of Versailles is a full-length portrait of Queen Mary holding a rose, while the Classique 9078 rose watch of Versailles is a part holding a rose. Combining the enamel micro-painting technology and the delicate process of pointillism, it is worthy of careful taste to reproduce the delicate painting on the faceplate.
It is worth mentioning that Breguet uses the pointillism of the 19th-century neo-impressionist Georges-Pierre Seurat (George-Pierre Seurat), which is a vivid and exquisite picture from a distance. I can see that every line, structure and color block is made up of stippling. Compared with ordinary micro-painted enamel, it requires more skilled painting skills. The delicate strokes and gradual light and shadow effects create a lifelike three-dimensional effect, as if the real leap on the faceplate. Also using this technique is the Zodiac series watch that Breguet releases every year. In fact, Breguet launches two zodiac-themed watches each year, including the Reine de Naples shell embossed dial watch and the Classique 9078 painted enamel watch.
