In 2007, Breguet opened its Tokyo boutique in the prestigious Ginza neighborhood, known for its many luxury boutiques. Ten years later, the watchmaker is celebrating a decade in Japan with the launch of a new special-edition watch as part of the Classique collection. Just 10 editions of this very limited-edition timepiece will go on sale in Japan.

For this special edition, Breguet has chosen to reinterpret a model from its Classique collection, notably known for sleekly simple white enamel or guilloche dials. The "Breguet Classique 5175, Ginza Anniversary" edition has a "Grand Feu" enamel dial in blue, complemented by Breguet-style numerals finished in platinum.

This exceptional creation has a 38mm 18-karat white gold case with fine fluting, and is hand engraved with the inscription "Ginza N°1" to "Ginza N°10" denoting the model in question.

The hours and minutes hands have the iconic "open-tipped" design and are rhodium-plated, contrasting with the blue "Grand Feu" enamel watch face. Similarly, the elongated seconds hand sweeps around the dial from its center mount.

This "Ginza Anniversary" edition watch runs the 777J caliber, an automatic mechanical movement, numbered and signed by Breguet. It has a 55-hour power reserve and comes with a stylish alligator strap with a gold pin buckle.
