Dial design is typically gorgeous and timeless. What is interesting about the standard beautiful look of Breguet watches is that in my opinion it is hard to put them into a specific era. It looks futuristic for late 1700s standards, and by today’s standards it is no doubt retro, but not in an aged way. For this reason engine-turned dials remain so compelling. The dial is actually solid 18k gold and placed on a guilloche machine and then engraved with six different types of patterns. The hour indicator dots are slightly raised, while there is depth to the dial as well. This keeps it from looking flat which is nothing but a plus.
