Breguet

The name of the most important inventor in watch history and provider of timekeeping fit for Kings, Queens and Emperors. In 1783, one of Marie Antoinette’s guards and secret admirers devised a way to make her fall in love with him. He had no doubt noticed the queen’s obsession with Abraham-Louis Breguet’s watches, of which she owned several, so he reached out to the watchmaker with a brief. Well, not so much a brief as a plea for the legendary watchmaker to make something so spectacular it would win the affections of the queen. The forlorn lover had the right idea: Breguet eventually delivered the most complicated watch in existence at the time, built with many of his original inventions, including the perpetual calendar, minute repeater, and equation of time.

Abraham-Louis Breguet is popularly regarded by watch historians as the Leonardo da Vinci of horology…

The Breguet we know today was effectively re-born in 1970 when the brand was aquired by the Chaumet brothers and moved to Vallée de Joux and launched its Classic line of watches.

Such is the importance and low numbers of earlier Breguet watches these are very hard to find outside of museums. The example you see here is amazingly rare and vey special.
