Who could resist a watchmaker that steals the moon from the sky, only to fix it to your wrist? Breguet’s Classique Phase de Lune Dame will put stars in your eyes.

With its Classique Phase de Lune Dame 9088, Breguet enhances its collection of timepieces for women with a watch of timeless elegance.

Both discreet and remarkable, this white-gold watch, measuring 30 mm in diameter, features exquisitely fluted sides and a dial in white ‘grand feu’ enamel. The latter is adorned with Arabic numerals, also known as ‘Breguet numerals’ in reference to the founder of the House, who designed them in 1783. The minutes track, made up of tiny stars, together with stylised fleurs-de-lys for the five-minute fractions are another homage to the Breguet watchmaking tradition. The blued-steel hours and minutes hands of this Classique Phase de Lune Dame are inspired by the famous open-tipped Breguet hands also invented in 1783. Here, they have been redesigned and complement the enamel dial perfectly.

The display of information is completed by a small-seconds hand and moon-phase aperture at 6 o’clock. The elegance of this timepiece is enhanced by a series of sublimely delicate brilliant-cut diamonds that grace the bezel and lugs. To ensure its female clientele are spoilt for choice, Breguet also offers this Classique Phase de Lune Dame in a rose-gold version, and a non-gem-set version. In addition, the House has also produced a model featuring natural mother-of-pearl that has been engine-turned by hand, complete with Breguet hands and Roman numerals, in white or rose gold, either gem-set or non-gem-set. The brand has thus added a total of eight models to its Classique collection and women’s range.
