Like so many other Breguet Watches Los Angeles Replica watches, the 7787 balances its smaller diameter with some unnervingly straight lugs which are just the ideal length — that the designer managed not to make the lugs a compensatory component, something which generally still occurs too often on otherwise fine looking instances. As such, the 7787 is a relatively little view by 21st century view criteria, but it still has enough presence to seem elegant — rather than apologetic. Most manufacturers tend to struggle greatly either when it comes to making these layouts look great extended to above forty wide — which is just the nature of proportions — or with timid-looking, miniature watches rather than This Breguet is neither stretched, nor shy. It’s only about right.Breguet hands meet Breguet numerals on the dial and that alone is a solid recipe for success. Just both of these components are similar to the signature or even a fingerprint of a genius. It’s something which has been created centuries ago and has been working in excellent harmony since. Kudos to Breguet for not butchering the hands but keeping them the proper length — public service announcement: palms should at all times attain their individual tracks, not point at them!Things get cluttered when the other 3 indications enter the image — those would be the seconds hand, the phase of the moon display, and the power reserve indication. Strangely, I do not mind this unorthodox design to get a dress watch. Dress watches, and particularly those that follow the dress watch code as strictly as this one tries, are more often than not worn on dreary long days where everyone is wearing the same sort of clothing and shoes and ties and watches and speaking exactly the same sort of talk to one another. I know today somehow it’s trendy to wear derby sneakers with coaching shoe bottoms (a vomit-inducing disgrace, in my opinion), so if you are to perform by the “business attire” rule book, you might as well opt for something which stays classy but also puts a smile on your face every once in a while.
