BREGUET

Abraham-Louis Breguet founded Breguet in 1775. He introduced gongs for repeating watches, made the para-chute – the predecessor of today’s shock-protection mechanism, and most importantly, the tourbillon, which changed watchmaking’s history. Brequet was also responsible for making the first wristwatch, ever! His watches were owned and admired by some of the most famous historic figures of his times which included the likes of Napoleon, among others.

Breguet had different managements in the 70s and 80s, before the Swatch Group finally took over in 1999. They continue to make the finest watches that are renowned for their unique craftsmanship – liked the famed engine-turned dials, Breguet hands, and the secret signature, that can only be read under a special light. Each watch comes with a unique number. To date, they hold more than 200 patents.
