Recently, I was lucky enough to go to the Swatch Tourbillon Boutique in Las Vegas and try on the amazing Breguet Hora Mundi ref#5717 in Platinum. This watch reeks elegance, style, refinement and tradition. Even with all these amazing elements of sophistication, Breguet makes this timeless complicated beauty very wearable and everyday by making the case in a 44 mm size.

Lets get to the watch, this watch is the most useful and functional out of all the complicated watches out there today . The functions of this watch include: time, date, day/night indicator and dual time zone function.  According to the Robb Report, The Breguet’s Classique Hora Mundi  was voted “Best of the Best” selections, notably for its beauty and functionality. I must say I agree. This watch is easy to read and serves a purpose especially for that world traveler who wants something super refined, exclusive and finished to the highest standards that watch making has to offer.

This watch is available in Platinum and in 18k red gold with three different dial options representing one part of the world: the Americas, the European and African continents, or Asia and Oceania.The Classique Hora Mundi is the first mechanical timepiece with an instant-jump time-zone display. This function allows the traveller to easily display the time in two pre-selected time zones, changing instantly from one to the other by the quick press of a button, without interrupting the operation of the watch.

You must be a real connoisseur to appreciate this watch and have deep pockets to afford this watch because in Platinum it retails for $94,000 and change, which to me is a little bit high. Then again it’s super limited and complicated and Breguet has 4 patents just on the movement.  If you happen to be in Las Vegas and want to see it live, hurry into the Swatch Tourbillon Boutique to witness horological mastery at it’s best!
