Breguet Watches

Brief Brand History for :

In 1775, Abraham Louis Breguet founded his now renowned watchmaking company. Due to his exceptional skill, Breguet soon became a watchmaker for royal families across Europe. He invented the first self-winding watch, the tourbillon, the gong spring, and the Breguet overcoil. His Marie-Antionette pocket watch, commissioned to have every known complication as a gift for the Queen of France, would become Breguet’s magnum opus. The company continued under the Breguet family until 1870, when the Brown family acquired it. The Brown family managed Breguet until 1970. Breguet was bought and sold numerous times during the quartz crisis before Investcorp acquired the company. By this point, Breguet’s signature design philosophy had been revitalized in part due to the guidance of watchmaker Daniel Roth. The Swatch Group would go on to purchase the Breguet Group in 1999.

Product Line Overview:

Avant-garde styling and horological complications, inspired by the legendary 'Souscription' watches of A.-L. Breguet, make Breguet's 'Tradition' both traditional and futuristic in styling. Similar to the 'steam punk' genre, their flawless movements and complications are complimented by partially-open dials.

Exemplifying Breguet's ideals of precision, clarity and elegance, 'Classique' features clean, classic dials, making 'Classique' appropriate for those who love classic simplicity. Available in extra-slim models, manual and automatic movements, 'Classique' is a versatile, 'go with anything' watch. An alternative to a round or rectangle case, 'Heritage' is tonneau-shaped; its delicately engine-turned dial sets off great stylings for both sexes.

'Montres Breguet' intricately constructs highly admired horological complications like the 'Minute Repeater' and the Breguet patented 'Perpetual Calendar'. 'Classique Grand Complications' include the 'Tourbillon Perpetual Calendar', 'Grande Complication Pocket-Watch' and the 'Regulator Tourbillon'.

'Marine' is a modern, sturdy and watertight leisure watch with reinforced case and protected crown. A.-L. Breguet made chronometers for the French Navy, so Breguet's stylish 'Marine' is definitely a sea-worthy choice.

Designed in 1950s for the French naval air arm; Breguet's 'Type XX' is a technical sports chronograph, avail in two models; 'Aeronavale' and 'Transatlantique' with date indication. Breguet's Type XXI design also features a fly-back minute totaliser and a 24-hour time display. 'Transatlantique' ia also avail for the female sports enthusiast.

The 'Reine de Naples' was the first wristwatch designed for a queen. Two centuries later, the opulent 'Queen of Naples' oval-dialed collection, some dripping in diamonds, or even held by an Akoya Pearl bracelet, remains an ever popular intricate, feminine masterpiece.
