Brilliance doesn’t necessarily need grand complications, lots of subdials and pushers. Sometimes it appears through perfect simplicity, as in the Breguet Classique 5140BA/29/9W6, in 18-carat yellow gold. The dial in oven-fired enamel has hand-painted Arabic numerals, and an off-centred subdial for small seconds. The case is 40 mm in diameter, 10.8 mm thick, with a solid caseback and 30 metres water resistance. The automatic movement provides a power reserve of 45 hours. Price about €15,860.
