Catalogue Note

The elusive Breguet reference 3938 encompasses the oldest continuously running watch company's know-how on both aesthetical and mechanical aspects. The impressive diamond-setting was wonderfully executed on the bezel, echoing the baguette-filled lugs on both their top section and profile as well as the crown. The traditional hand-guilloché dial is symmetrically laid-out with dedicated subdials for the power reserve indication and a 24-hour display. 

Finally and importantly, the tastefully decorated minute repeating caliber 567 displays the pocket watch construction Breguet is highly praised for.

The closest model currently sold by Breguet bears no diamonds and retails for USD 237,000, making the present highest-grade example an exceptional opportunity for a collector to acquire a very rare and highly complicated wristwatch.
