The Swiss watchmaking company Breguet was founded in the 18th century by Abraham-Louis Breguet. The name of Abraham-Lois Breguet belongs to the list of most outstanding personalities in the history of watchmaking. Breguet's timekeeping creations won the hearts of many renowned personalities, including Sir Winston Churchill, Queen Marie-Antoinette, Napoleon Bonaparte, and tsar Aleksandr.
The Breguet history has been highlighted by numerous horological achievements, with perpetual calendar, shock resistance for balance bearings, a keyless winding system, and even the invention of tourbillon among many others. Breguet left a great watchmaking heritage for generations to follow - in Breguet's archives it is possible to find a 230-year-old Breguet pocket watch as well as a number of two-centuries-old timepieces.
Breguet created the brand's special watch style that distinguishes Breguet timepieces from any other timekeepers - round-shaped cases, inscriptions, distinctive watch hands and date's indication. All the timepieces of the brand are characterized by distinctive Breguet style and utmost elegance.
The current hour is displayed via the bridge connecting the two tourbillons. The bridge doubles as an hour hand. A traditionally centrally-located minute hand indicates the minutes.
The refined nature of the Breguet Classique Grande Complication is revealed through elegant Roman numerals, blued-steel Breguet hands, the decorated bridges and bars of the hand-wound mechanical movement, circular-grained wheels and chamfered sinks, and bevelled and polished parts.
The back of the movement features a hand-engraved drawing of the solar system visible through the clear sapphire case-back. The idea of the drawing was suggested by the 60-second rotation of the tourbillons on themselves and their rotation in tandem around a center axis over a period of 12 hours.
Any Breguet watch will become a fine addition to the accessory collection of a serious-minded man who appreciates long-standing traditions and reliable quality. A timekeeping creation from Breguet will underline a man's elegant style - it will match a business-like outfit as well as any solemn costume.
Among the collection of Breguet watches you will discover a variety of classy styled timepieces to be acquired as reliable timekeeping companions.
