This exquisite timepiece is another example of the Manufacture’s extraordinary capabilities. The round, 46mm case is made of 950 platinum, with a hand-engraved caseback on a rose engine, fitted with a sapphire crystal. The bezel, lugs, caseband and crown are embedded with 166 baguette-cut diamonds. A screw-locked crown is present at 3 o’clock, with a pushpiece crown at 8 o’clock. The remarkable dial, in 18-carat gold and depicting the Asian continent, is hand-engraved on a rose engine, with a wave motif. The continent has 154 round-cut diamonds embedded in it, while the chapter ring is set with 76 baguette-cut diamonds and 83 baguette-cut sapphires. The city indication is at 6 o’clock, with the date aperture at 12 o’clock. The hand-engraved day/night indication is also in 18-carat gold, and each watch is individually numbered and signed Breguet. The open-tipped hands are in the iconic Breguet blued steel. The self-winding movement is also numbered and signed Breguet. For travellers, the instant time-zone jump, with synchronised date, day/night and city indications, is a boon. The strap is in alligator leather. The watch is water resistant to 30 meters and has a power reserve of 55 hours.
