The name of Breguet is associated with numerous innovations - perpetual calendar, chronograph, power reserve, para-chute, shock absorber and tourbillon. Breguet's watchmaking genius won the hearts of outstanding personalities in the history of mankind - Napoleon Bonaparte, Queen Victoria, Russian Tsar Alexander I, Marie-Antoinette, Winston Churchill and many others.
Breguet Tourbillon Automatic Regulator is a classically styled timepiece created to reflect the best Breguet traditions. Abraham-Louis Breguet presented the first tourbillon as a novel regulating device to France's ministry of the interior and received a patent in June, 1801.
If you are not so experienced in the horology field, it is important to mention that the tourbillon represents a device developed to eliminate the effects of gravity affecting the rate of a timepiece. Simply speaking, it is responsible for improving the accuracy of timekeeping. This complicated mechanism consists of a round carriage, or a cage that comprises the escapement and the balance and rotates continuously.
Breguet Tourbillon Automatic Regulator catches attention due to its original and elegant design. The round gold case of the watch is moderately sized - it measures 39 mm in diameter. The watch is powered by a reliable automatic movement.
The silvery dial of the watch features an off-centered sub-dial for hours in the upper part of the dial. The sub-dial is completed with elegant Roman numerals and a blue Breguet-style hand. The slim centered minute hand is also blue, adding a 'zest' to the timepiece's look. The majestic tourbillon is visible through a special window at 6 o'clock position - it is a real pleasure to rest one's eye on this sophisticated mechanism.
The dial of the Breguet Tourbillon Automatic Regulator is surrounded by the perfectly polished bezel. The brown big-scale leather strap finely matches the overall construction.
The rigorous yet refined style of the Breguet watch makes it an ideal choice for rather serious-minded gentlemen who get dressed in a conventionally classic style.
The collection of Breguet watches created in classic style gives everyone interested a nice chance to acquire a refined timekeeper of outstanding quality. Breguet watches are also often given as timeless gifts to be inherited through generations to follow.
