If Breguet is special to the fine watches enthusiasts, it is because its founder, Abraham-Louis Breguet (1747-1823), set the standard of fine watchmaking. Ever since he opened his Paris workshop in 1775, he is responsible for some of the most important horological inventions, such as the tourbillon complication. His heirs at Breguet keep on making each watch as a model of supreme horological art.
Breguet’s creativity and ingenuity have not dwindled over time, but have on the contrary steadily increased: witness the fact that since 1999 the list of patents registered during this recent period is now considerably longer than that of the founder’s inventions.
Creativity, innovation and impeccable aesthetics are once again the keynotes of the prestigious models unveiled by Breguet at Baselworld. Loyal to its history, the House honours its founder’s broad range of competencies that proved of ample benefit to watchmaking as well as to navigation and astronomy. Following in the wake of this unique heritage, the House of Breguet now launches a worldwide exclusive model named the Marine Équation Marchante 5887. This “Grande Complication” marks the start of a new era for the contemporary Marine collection.
