Wow, what a beauty. And in a manner that only the house of Breguet can create. The frosted finish of the movement plates, the Tahitian mother-of-pearl hour/minute dial, the flower-pattern engraving on the center-set barrel, and the visible gear train and jewels — just to name a few of my favorite things on this feminine piece. Look closely below and you will also see the discreetly placed retrograde seconds hand at 10 o’clock with seconds notations engraved direct on the movement plate. Breguet rounds out the Tradition Dame 7038 with a diamond-set bezel and, unusually, a movement jewel (a synthetic ruby, I guess) set into the crown. Such a great piece for the ladies!
