  • Catalogue Essay

    The present Breguet perpetual calendar features all the visual codes set out by the great Abraham-Louis Breguet: a delicately guilloché dial, Breguet hands, coin edge case and a perfectly legible dial, even with 7 hands.

    The information on the dial is placed in a very legible and ingenious manner: the month is indicated in the centre, with the day and leap year indication on each side. The date is indicated via a subdial at 6 o’clock. The top part of the dial is reserved for non calendar indications such as the moonphases display and the power reserve.

    This timepiece may have an extremely classical and traditional appearance but housed within is the automatic caliber 502 that not only is beautifully hand engraved but uses cutting edge technology as its balance spring and lever are in silicon.

  • Artist Biography


    Swiss • 1775

    Established in 1775 by Abraham Louis Breguet, widely considered the greatest watchmaker of all time, the storied brand continues to thrive in the modern era, creating exceptional high-end watches as the Swatch Group's premier prestige brand. Some of the most important and lasting inventions in watchmaking are attributed to Abraham Louis Breguet, including the tourbillon, shock resistance and the use of hammers and gongs employed in nearly all minute repeating watches made since.

    Eighteenth and nineteenth century Breguet pocketwatches are especially sought-after by collectors, and many of them were made for the elite of European society, including Napoléon and Marie Antoinette. Key wristwatches from the twentieth century include oversized dress watches, two-register chronographs, triple calendars and Type XX aviator's chronographs made for the French military and civilians.
