In commemoration of Chinese New Year, the Year of the Dog, House of Breguet has produced an extremely limited-edition run of eight watches with a hand-engraved image of a Chow Chow, one of the most cherished breeds in China.
Details of the Breguet Classique 7145 Chow Chow
The Breguet Classique 7145 Chow Chow pays tribute to the craft of guilloche, creating meticulous and unique works of art. After sketching out the design, the engraver performs his work using various types of chisels and graving tools, all the while observing the components under a microscope.
