All the splendour of truly exceptional horology
A symbol of historical and cultural heritage and technological avant-garde, Breguet has consistently exercised a powerful fascination through its capacity for innovation. From the tourbillon to the gong spring, a number of inventions by A.-L. Breguet have made an indelible imprint on the history of Fine Watchmaking since 1775.
To this day, the Manufacture faithfully perpetuates the exceptional heritage bequeathed by its founder, as it continues to offer ever more fascinating timepieces combining technical complications and pure, refined aesthetics. By way of example, in 2011 Breguet launched the Classique Hora Mundi 5717, the first mechanical watch in horological history to feature an instant-jump time-zone display. In 2013, the Manufacture presented the Classique Chronométrie 7727, the first mechanical watch equipped with a magnetic pivot. With components in silicon and a high frequency, this exceptional discovery enables to reach an impressive precision. 2014 brought the launch of the 5377 Classique Tourbillon extra-thin automatic, which thus joined the ranks of the brand’s masterpieces.
An absolute benchmark in the field of Haute Horlogerie, Breguet is further reinforcing its position as an essential stakeholder in the watch industry, particularly through pursuing the vertical integration of its entire range of production activities. 2011 thus saw the incorporation of the Favre et Perret watch case manufacturer which was duly renamed Montres Breguet, Manufacture de boîtes. Moreover, the brand is steadily extending its network of boutiques currently comprising around 30 points of sale located in over 20 of the world’s most prestigious cities.
