Minute Repeater is still considered to be one of the most important and valuable complications in the world of traditional luxury watchmaking today. This unique complication, interpreted by various major watch brands and independent designers in different forms, is the guest of our pages once again with the Répétition Minutes 7637 model by Breguet.
The Minute Repeater, which has come to life with different designs by many well-established brands, is one of the indispensable complications of traditional luxury watchmaking with its melodic gong tones as well as its fine details in its architecture that make its fans smile. The model we have here today, Breguet Répétition Minutes 7637, which is considered one of the most refined examples of Minute Repeater featured watches, is an innovative and contemporary timepiece.
The model is offered in a 18K white gold case. Also available in 18K pink gold, the case measures 42mm in diameter and 12.35mm in total height. The case, which offers a strong wrist presence with its modern size, is equipped with scratch resistant sapphire crystals on both sides.
The case bears signature design details of the brand like its unique lugs and coin edge pattern middle body. Accompanied with a large Breguet signed winding crown, the case sports a see-through case back that is engraved with wave pattern.
Breguet Répétition Minutes 7637 comes with a beautiful dial which is generously handcrafted with Gullioche patterns. The dial is designed in silver tones that match nicely with the 18K white gold case.
The small seconds counter is located at 9 o’clock while the 24h day/night indicator sub-dial is present at 3 o’clock. The dial is equipped with a silver scale housing Roman numeral hour marker that support the traditional character of the model and a set of brand’s signature Breguet hands finished in blue.

Caliber Ref. 567/2, whom every single component is polished and beveled, can be enjoyed with pleasure through the sapphire crystal display case back.
