Abraham Louis Breguet is generally accepted as the Father of modern watch making. His patents & inventions have helped lay the foundation for contemporary mechanical movements while his flair for design & attention to detail have ensured a watch today is more than simply an instrument. His Brand began humbly in Paris & is now part of the swatch Group with a genuine claim to being the oldest continuous running watch manufacturer.As a watchmaker, Breguet held such patents are the Tourbillon (the most complicated single improvisation in mechanical watch making) & the parachute system that helps protect mechanical movements from impacts. As a designer, he is credited for the first lady's wrist watch in the now historic Reine de Naples collection.The pocket watch designed by Breguet for Queen Marie Antoinette, carried the most complications of any pocket watch at the time & although completed after her death, and then stolen & found in very strange circumstances, is considered to be the most valuable pocket watch in history.
The current Breguet collection consisting of Breguet Classique watches, Breguet Tourbillons, Breguet Marine collection, Breguet Reine de Naples collection, Breguet Heritage Collection & also the Breguet Type xx, Breguet Type XXI & Breguet Type XXII offer a Breguet for every type of client & the fact you can still register your time piece with Breguet's central record keeping department ensures not only that their clients are in the esteemed company of their peers but also that the foundation has been laid for this genuinely important Brand to continue its impressive history.We are one of only few Official Agents for Breguet in Central London – we take great pride in this relationship & look forward to helping you choose your part of history!
