Powered by the Lemania 2310 ébauche, this Breguet Chronograph 3237 combines a rarely seen white gold case with a hand-finished guilloché dial. It was one of the first models introduced by Breguet following the brand's resuscitation by the Chaumet brothers and their Master Watchmaker, Daniel Roth.

As with many things in modern horology, these were first developed as tools, to be used during exhilarating car races, meticulous medical examinations or in more frivolous pursuits. Nowadays, choosing whether to have a chronograph or not is a matter of taste, rather than a question of functionality. It is a choice imbued with romanticism and nostalgia for the past.
