Breguet Watches - Exquisite Watchmaking for Royalty
Founded in 1755 by Abraham-Louis Breguet, Breguet is one of the oldest surviving watchmaking establishments in the world. Throughout the history of fine watchmaking, it has held the place of highest honor and accomplishment; many of the most influential advancements in this universe originated in the house of Breguet.
Some of Breguet's advancements were the launch of the first self-winding watches known as "perpetuelles" in 1780, the perpetual calendar in 1785, as well as a patented movement with equation of time and calendar, both functions as perpetual and automatically self-correcting over a period of more than a century. The most notable advancement in watchmaking technology was the tourbillon, invented by Abraham-Louis Breguet himself.
Following his introduction at the Royal court, Breguet built himself a loyal clientele among the nobility and designed exclusive timepieces for elite members of the military, and financial and diplomatic classes. Queen Marie-Antoinette, Napoleon Bonaparte, the Sultan of the Ottoman Empire, Queen Victoria, and Sir Winston Churchill were among those who swore by the Breguet timepieces' finesse and fine artistry. Mixing the richness of art and culture, Breguet set a standard of perfection which is, to this day, carried on by his heirs.
The beauty of Breguet watches is enjoyed by both men and women, across several gorgeous collections - Classique, Marine, Heritage, Type XX/XXI, La Tradition, Reine de Naples and High Jewelry.
