Ever since having an amazingly great experience at the Breguet boutique in NYC five years ago, I decided the one day I'd purchase a Breguet Classique.
A friend and I were discussing watch goals for our next decade birthday, and I thought that Breguet would be suitable for my 40th.
Every week or so I'd look at watchrecon or chrono24 and type in "Breguet Classique" to see what the 5140 was fetching because it's one of their more classic
designs with the guilloche dial larger than 38mm. I checked into chrono and saw this pop up at a steal of a price, BNIB, and was floored.
I have a Piaget Altiplano 43mm, and 40 is about as small as I like to go since I have a 7 3/4" wrist, so when I saw a 41mm model
I never knew existed pop up, I had to buy it. After speaking with the seller on Sunday, I sent immediate payment and received the watch
on Tuesday. I'm in love. I turn 40 in July of 2023, so I guess it's time to consider what's next.
